Sigma 50mm 2.8 macro EX vs. new plastic 50
Lens: Sigma 50mm 2.8 macro EX Camera: K30 Photo Location: Long Island, NY

I had been all set to buy the Da50mm 1.8 plastic lens, when, just in time I discovered I had just
lost $600. of my monthly income. Couple of days later I went a-shootin' with my Sigma 50mm 2.8 eX macro lens
to test it on my new K30 body. I feel that the attached shots taken with my Sigma easily justify my keeping it and will
happily use the $200. I saved on something sensible. Comments welcome. I shot these in early morning sunlight.
Iso varied from 800 to 1600 ( the waterfall shot was iso 1600 @F5.6. ) Freddy
