Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM

In a reply to an inquiry from a Pentax user, Sigma’s sales operations supervisor admitted that the Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM in Pentax mount was no longer made due to insufficient sales. There is one left in stock from a third-party seller at Amazon.

As far as I can tell, the Canon and Nikon mounts are good sellers, so the lens itself shouldn’t leave the lineup until a Global Vision version (which is high on many wish lists) gets in.

    How much r&d goes in to making a new lens?

      This is highly variable Jeffry. A lot for complex lenses made from scratch.

    Also the recent discontinuation of several wide angle primes started with the discontinuation of the least selling versions. This may be an indication that there is a new sports lens in the works.

      For the 50-150mm and 70mm Macro, the Canon mount was the first to be discontinued in both cases.

    Which makes me wonder whether Sigma would sell a 70-200mm with any other mount, then convert it to Pentax.

      Interesting. Will inquire!

    Too bad! Pentax + Sigma is a winning combination. Pentax cameras are fantastic but their lenses are often too expensive. Sigma cameras are are wierd and lack sensor based stabilisation, but their Global Vision lenses have fantastic price/performance.

    Very satisfied owner of a K-5 + Sigma 18-35mm f/1,8, Sigma 30mm f/1,4 HSM and Sigma 70-200 f/2,8 HSM macro II, all stabilised.
