It arrived - Sigma 50mm EX DG Macro f/2.8

Got my new Sigma Macro lens this week, first couple of pics.. well worth the price, thanks to B & H and their great service I saved hundreds and it was here in 4 days to my door.

Had grappled with the decision, either the Pentax FA 50 2.8 Macro or the Sigma, the Sigma won, not only because I saved nearly $400!! but after trying both the difference was marginal.

On a K10D first shots.
