p.1 #1 · Nice sale on the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 for $379 shipped.


BuyDig.com has the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM lens on sale for $399. They also have an additional $20 off via code "PROSLRGRP75K" bringing the total to $379 including next day shipping. For that price I figured it was worth adding to the kit and getting rid of my older Nikon 50mm f/1.8D. Hopefully someone in the market for this lens can also take advantage of this deal.

I believe the Canon version is on sale for the same price as well but doesn't work nearly as good.

I ordered one last night and it shipped today. I also got "24 hour standard delivery", which I've seen some others report as well. Is the Nikon version as hit or miss as the Canon version? I had a great copy of the Canon version, which is why I took a shot on the Nikon one as well.

I believe the QC problems they had only plagued the early versions of the lens. I haven't heard any negative reports from this lens in a while.

I have not had any issues with the Sigma 50 on any of my Nikon bodies.

Thanks guys. I'll find out tomorrow as the tracking number does indeed indicate overnight shipping. Nice bonus there.

Thanks Techster. NAILED!!!

Please be aware that BuyDig is not on the Sigma authorized USA dealer network list. Neither here nor there to me, but just to let you all know.

Thanks again!

Last time I play the Sigma lottery. -20 AF fine tune and it still wasn't as sharp as I felt like my Canon was. I think my 50mm 1.8G is sharper. I'm sending it back. What a disappointment. I thought Sigma had supposedly gotten better, but I guess not.

I believe they are authorized dealers. They show up as Beach Trading Co when you search on Sigma for their zip code (08817).

Glad you guys took advantage of the deal as well. Mine is here in the box, waiting on the wife to run errands so I can open it up and test it out!

Thanks for the heads up. Just ordered -- was the free overnight shipping an added bonus that they threw in after the order was made or was it an option from the start?

The free shipping will happen "as Xmas magic" after you place the order. Just opt for the free shipping, leave the rest to Santa's elves. Lol!!!

Thanks RiotShield. I'll have another look. I would like to have the Sigma 4 year warranty.

Wow, that was FAST. Placed the order about an hour ago and it just shipped. I have no idea if it's overnight/one-day shipping though since the tracking number doesn't work yet and the email confirmation for shipping doesn't say

Tracking info will show up after 10:00PM EST. They use FedEx, and WILL require signature @ delivery.

This was a SMOKE'N HOT deal!!!
