    I already have the non HSM version of this lens, how much could I expect to pay for the HSM version and would there be much point in me upgrading?

  • Steff Roy says:

    I could read on the Net some beautiful things about the Sigma 24-70mm F2,8 DG EX HSM but I do not find it with the sale !!!
    Can we already find it with the sale ? If not, when will it be available and at which price ?
    Sorry for my English, I am French!!!
    Thank you

    Sales starts in 2009/01/25

  • Johann says:

    The word is that it will cost ~$1,400 USD when it hits the streets. That is crazy! The Canon EF24-70mm f/2.8L USM is ~$1,050 and it has superior specs!

  • Becki says:

    Yes, but that’s the street price. You can find it on Amazon for $899, but you won’t get it shipped until the Canon version is released January 25, 2009.
