    Hi;
    I was looking for this lens, a Sigma 135-400 in a 4/3 mount. Do you have this lens in stock??

    Thanks Gerry

    Hi Gerry
    Sorry at this time Sigma has no plans to produce this lens in the four thirds mount.
    Thank you

    give's you an idea of the uphill battle that you face trying to buy a lens for 4/3 in Canada, This is the distributor for Sigma, they in turn sell to the camera stores. It shows how bad a choice it was to make them the distributor. They have no real interest in the product line, but will succeed in preventing anyone else from importing the product. With only Sigma and Oly making lenses for 4/3 you have to fish from a very small pond as it is. Take away Sigma in canada and the fact that a lot of sigma dealers in USA wont ship to Canada it makes Canon/Nikon look like a much better choice. You can find Sigma lenses at 1/2 suggested list price for these cameras and a shortage at full list for Oly.

    Yep, it's the same with the 50-500mm - consistently high demand yet they seem to occasionally sell one or two of them. I've given up on getting either of them, Sigma UK keep claiming they'll be available the next month, then the next month etc. but they never seem to be,

    I got mine on via a Malaysian store but delivered from Japan. Know any Japanese Oly users here? Can get them to help send them to you from Japan.

    Leica?? It's not even available anywhere. People are buying the L1s and selling the body.

    Hi;

    Thank you for your quick reply. Sigma USA does carry a 135-400 in 4/3 mount. I was hoping that I would not have to shop cross boarder. If this lens does become available soon please keep me informed. Also "Any" new lens for the 4/3 mount. As only Olympus and Sigma produce lenses in this mount they are in great demand and very short supply.

    You can go to B & H Photo click on the item & it will say out of stock & give you the option to be notified when item is available. They will send you email notice when it is available. But order as soon as you get the email as it took me 2 trys.This does work as I just bought one myself.
    Hope this helps & excuse my inexperience as I am new to this site.
