Sigma 28-105mm F2.8-4 Asp AF

Hi!!

anyone owns this lens?
is it a good substitute for the DA18-55?

i won't mind loosing the 10mm from 18 to 28..
since i found this lens for 130 i'm seriously considering it..

thanks

If the 28-105mm focal length interests you, the FA 28-105 f3.2-4.5 is a better lens.

Hint: there is a brand new one with a reasonable BIN price from a reputable seller on auction right now.

Hi, i've got the lens, it's not too bad, although I don't use it alot, I prefer using the Sigma 18-125 DC. If you dont end up getting that one I may consider selling it to you. One thing I like is the ability to use the apeture ring to a constant 2.8 in M mode on the k10D.

28mm at the wide end is 44mm in 35mm terms. That is VERY narrow for a walk about lens IMHO.

Bought this lens about 6 or 7 years ago for my ZX-7 and use it now on my K10.
I previously owned a *ist DL with the DA 18-55 and sold it opting to use the Sigma 28-105 as my prime. It is quite a bit heavier and bulkier but I find it to be a very good portrait lens.
