[SOLD] SIGMA EX 28mm f1.8 With Hood, caps case and box as new.

Item Location

Item Description

Sigma EX 28mmf1.8 macro $295.00
I paid $439.00 brand new.
A very nice lens. Maybe not a 31mm but certainly a very good lens at an affordable price. It's sharp, the colour rendition is nice and the 'macro' feature is an added plus for limited DOF shots and closer focusing. Min shooting distance, 20cm (7.8 inch) (reproduction ratio 1 : 2.9)

I've had it about a year and it it's been well cared for. In very good condition in every way.

I have the box, the case - a very nice semi hard nylon and well padded case that is similar to the Lowepro F&S cases. Everything that came with it when I bought it new.

$295.00 shipping included! to the USA or Canada

This unit includes the box and manual, case, caps, complete as I bought it new.

To see more about the lens: Sigmas web site pics/description

Some good sample images from it here on Pbase

A few features:

Super Multi Coating reduces flare and ghosting that tends to occur when using digital SLR cameras.

The large aperture wide-angle lens for digital and 35mm film SLR cameras.

This lens has a macro focusing capability with fast F1.8 maximum aperture, which is ideal for Digital SLR cameras.

Macro capability

This lens is capable of Macro photography, with minimum shooting distance of 20cm (7.8 inch) (reproduction ratio 1 : 2.9) and angle of view is 75.4. You can take picture not only the subject but also the surrounding scenery.

The lens has an advanced optical construction, in order to obtain adequate peripheral brightness with open aperture. Also, the iris diaphragm has 9 diaphragm blades to obtain beautiful out of focus images in the foreground and background.


The lens incorporates a Dual-Focus (DF) mechanism. It is easy to hold the lens, since the focusing ring does not rotate during auto-focus, yet it provides adequate focusing torque of the focusing ring during manual focusing of the lens. Also, this also allows the use of a Petal-type Hood and the easy use of a polarizing filter.

Aspherical lens

It incorporates a floating focus system and uses two aspherical lens elements for minimizing distortion, aberration and astigmatism.

I will post pics tomorrow.
