It's Here! Sigma DC f/2.8 EX Macro

As you probably know I have been going between lenses like mad, a bit of LBA mixed with 'what do I need in a lens' plus a little insanity.

After a long few months I've settled on one lens. The Sigma DC f/2.8 EX Macro.

just a quick few first photos;

It is very sharp and renders great colour.

Congradulation on the lens!

The only issue with the lens (to me) is low contrast for general purpose use. Otherwise, this lens is hard to beat!

If FL means Focal Length then it's 18-50mm

Sigma must be really backing their product.
The DC 17-70 has 5 year, the EX 18-50 and 70-300 APO are 10 year, not sure about the other models.
