Anyone tried out sigma 70mm f2.8 macro yet?

I was just wondering anyone here had tried this lens?



I read the review in Popphoto.com and this lens certainly has a lot of appraisal...

Test: Sigma 70mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro AF - Lens Test: Sigma 70mm f/2.8 ex dg macro AF - PopPhotoDecember 2006

Sigma 70mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro review

Sigma 70mm F2.8 DG EX macro review and samples PentaxLife Forum

This almost cost as much as D FA 100 mm f2.8

I prefer to see samples rather than some arbitary lab testings ...


Thanks if you could post a few pics

Have seen a couple of people praise this lens on other sites. They seem very happy with it. Usefulness depends on what you want to shoot with it. For me too little working distance. Much prefer 100mm range. Actually 150-200 range. Pentax, please bring out a new 200mm macro. Please.
thanks

I really want FA*200 f4 macro so bad. Apparently only 900 copies were produced or something.

I wished we could have 300 macro instead. hehe
