Sigma 50mm F2.8 EX Macro

Did not find a listing for this lens in the third-party lenses section, so I'm starting a new thread. Feel free to post images from both the EX and EX DG versions of this lens, as there are currently no sample images. Adding one image F2.8 to show the bokeh at close focus distance. (Not a macro image, but a 40% crop)

This lens is so good I have two of them, just in case the one missing the zoom ring falls apart, I had an incident where I was trying to remove the zen coating the zen coating and it fused back together, that's why there is a missing zoom ring, still works well though.
