Saw this. It's a pre-release, in AUS, and with tax, so take it with a shovel of salt...

~$1194 USD directly converted subtracting 10% GST. That would lead me to guess at a $999 or so US price based upon my guesses on AUS mark-ups.

oiseau1000 - the links says it has image stabilization. Do you know anything about this, or is it a typo on the adcopy under specifications?

In truth, I didn't notice that! My presumption would be that it's an error. I'm sure Sigma would have touted that during the announcement.

Sigma recently revealed the weight of this new beast :http://sigma-global.com/en/lenses/cas/product/art/a_50_14/features.html
815 grams! That's more than the Sigma 35/1.4 or even the 85/1.4. Holy brick, Batman!

A few ~50mm stats for comparison (taken from mfg. tech specs, ordered by weight):

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II
6E/5G ............ 46 AOV ........ 0.45m MFD ......... 190g ......... 68.2 x 41.0mm ......... 52mm filter ...... 1990

Canon EF 50mm f/1.4
7E/6G ............ 46 ............... 0.45m ................ 290g ......... 73.8 x 50.5mm ......... 58mm .............. 1993

Nikkor AF-S 58mm f/1.4 G
9E/6G ......... 40.8 ............... 0.58m ................ 385g ......... 85.0 x 70.0mm ......... 72mm .............. 2013

Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX "Sigmalux"
8E/6G ......... 46.8 ............... 0.45m ................ 505g ......... 84.5 x 68.2mm ......... 77mm .............. 2008

Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L
8E/6G ............ 46 ............... 0.45m ................ 590g ......... 85.8 x 65.5mm ......... 72mm .............. 2006

Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art
13E/8G ....... 46.8 ............... 0.40m ................ 815g ......... 85.4 x 99.9mm ......... 77mm .............. 2014

Zeiss Otus 55mm f/1.4 Distagon
12E/10G ..... 43.7 ............... 0.50m ............... 1030g ......... 92.4 x 141mm ......... 77mm .............. 2013

On this scale, it's rather amazing how light the new Nikkor is, that is, if the published stats are accurate.

Edit: Fixed wrong link.

The Nikkor is still a lightly tweaked planar design, while this new Sigma is much more complex. What will be amazing is just how small and light the Sigma will be, yet how close it will be to the Otus optically while also including AF .
