The previously-delayed Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM lens has a newly listed ship date of May 15, 2013. It’s $3600, but it’s a constant f/2.8 throughout the zoom range. It is a beast of a lens. Hit the links below for more details.
These new lenses are priced the same as their predecessors and should be solid additions to mirrorless kits – particularly the NEX versions due to the limited selection of available lenses thus far.
