LBA: Sigma 400mm F5.6 APO Macro

I was in the market for a long telephoto lens, looking specifically at the Bigma, until this little gem showed up on a local classifieds website. At 1/4 the price of the Bigma, I'm more than satisfied.
Also, it close focuses at 1.5m, perfect for chickadees.

Wow!
Congratulation!
This Sigma is one of the best 400mm lenses.

Enjoy!

I also just bought this:



Have not had a chance for serious test photos yet.

It's not the macro version. But considering it was only $105, including a PKa mount Promaster Spectrum7 28mm 1:2.8 (Sigma rebadged) and an SMC Pentax-M 40-80mm 1:2.9-4.0, it ain't a bad deal I guess
