Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 APO EX DC OS HSM Now Available

Sigma 50-150mm

The new Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 APO EX DC OS HSM now available at a street price of $1099.  The lens range works out to roughly a 75-225mm equivalent on APS-C cameras like the Canon 7D and Nikon D7000.  Canon, Nikon and Sigma-mount versions are expected to ship by the end of April.

The lens is currently available for pre-order at B&H Photo.

Canon 5D Price Dropping

The Canon 5D Mark II has not even begun to ship yet and we’re already seeing the original Canon 5D take a hit in price.  Just last week, I noticed the Canon 5D + EF 24-105mm L lens was around $2700 for the kit at Amazon.  Now, the original 5D combo is available for $2590.  Also, the Canon 5D body is now selling for under $2k.

So, if you can’t swing a 5D Mark II, you might consider the original 5D at a substantial discount.  Personally, I’m drooling over the kit’s price point right now.

Canon 7D and Sony A900 Priced at Muller Photo

UPDATE: The Canon 7D has been officially announced.  Read more on Photography Bay’s Canon 7D Reviews and Resources. Check availability at Amazon.com.

Muller Photo, a French electronics seller, has posted product pages for the Sony A900 and Canon EOS 7D.  While neither page divulges anything regarding the cameras’ specifications, Muller Photo lists prices for both cameras.

  • Their price for the Canon EOS 7D is EUR 2990 (Source).
  • And, their price for the the Sony A900 is EUR 2490 (Source).

Whether Muller Photo knows something the rest of us don’t remains to be seen.  Muller Photo could just be capitalizing on some free press by listing these product pages.

Stay tuned to Photography Bay’s coverage of these cameras for latest as we lead up to Photokina 2008:
