I find all my Sigmas highly competent, EM. I'm very anxious to get my Bigma back from the shop after the "incident".

And I'm happy I finally managed to secure the Sigma 180mm F3.5 APO EX DG Macro which should arrive soon.

Thanks very much. I was just experimenting to see how a 1:1 crop would look.

Many thanks! The K-70 is a VERY pleasant surprise to me... especially with the lens combination. I can't wait until my Bigma gets out of the shop to see what it can do.

I really don't see how these can be improved on, regardless of what other lens is used!
