After a loan of a Sigma 150-500mm f5.6-6.3 Telephoto Zoom Lens from a work colleague I had resigned myself to the fact that I would, in the New Year have to save my money and look to purchase one for myself.
Browsing the web, I decided to look at the price for this item as my colleague had stated that he paid £900+ for his earlier in the year
Imagine my surprise when last night I saw that the price had dropped to around £700
Then I saw that Currys had them on offer for £599.97 down from £769.99 but NOT available for on-line purchase
So today I tried to purchase it from Currys in store! 2 were showing as in stock but after an hour waiting and them searching – no items found!!!! And none in stock in any other store???
Anyone any idea why? Is it being discontinued as the staff stated and if so by what?
Should I wait for Sigma to announce an updated version or surf to find another or buy something else?
Any recommendations please
