    One of these days Sigma will learn that it's worthwhile to license the A-mount. – Terry

    Re: Sony alpha 33/55 Sigma Lens Notice
    Last Friday I found a Sigma 500mm prime, f7.2 lens for a very good price. I purchased it, brought it home, then saw the thread on Dyxum. Thinking 'ooh dang it' then realized, I love the Sony Alpha's I have now and probably won't buy either of the new cameras any time in the foreseeable future. So, now I am back to being a happy camper.

    The only thing I an contemplating in the near future is the possibility of selling the A200's to finance the purchase of another A700.

    With all that said, I would like to see Sigma keeping up by licensing the A-mount so no one would have to worry about future development.
