ISO 12233 resolution chart sample crops along with flare and distortion test results are now available on the Sigma 150mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM Macro Lens Review page.
 
Why the with-2x Extender results are so much sharper in the corner remains an unanswered question for me. Strange.

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 2, 2012) - Corel today announced that it has acquired Avid's consumer video editing product lines, including Pinnacle Studio™ HD and Avid® Studio.

Price drop on this auction: eBay has the Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR Body for only $3,147.68 shipped (comp at $3,499.00). Plus, "You'll earn $62.95 in eBay Bucks."
 
Update: Friend of the site Noah informed me that, as of 6/3/2012, seller "BuyItDigital" is not on Canon's authorized retailer list and that a warranty card is not listed as being included. I've never needed a warranty card for repair service, but the non-authorized-retailer is more of an uncertainty in my mind. BuyItDigital has a very high eBay feedback rating.
 
Noah adds that Canon authorized dealer The Imaging World has the Canon EOS 5D Mark III for only $3,218.00 shipped. "You'll earn $64.36 in eBay Bucks."
