Is This The Price For The Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG “Art” Lens ($790)?

Sigma 50mm f/1.4

This comes directly from Sigma Bielorussia (translated), so we can assume they know what they are talking about. If true this would be a killer price, especially if you consider that Sigma aims no less than at the Zeiss Otus 55mm f/1.4 with their lens, and the Zeiss is a $3990 lens!

The Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG “Art” lens is expected to ship in May 2014.
