Item Description
Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro for Pentax a standard zoom lens which provides high level performance for both Pentax DSLR cameras and Pentax 35 mm film cameras. The Sigma Lens employs three aspherical lenses to get optimum color aberration compensation and constant f/2.8 aperture at all focal lengths. The constant f/ 2.8 aperture of the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro creates smooth background blur that draws attention to the photographic subject. The lens materials of Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro are lead-and-arsenic-free, ecological glass. This is also a decent Sigma Macro Lens with a minimum focusing distance of 40 cm and maximum magnification of .26x. You get wonderful details of subjects with this Sigma Macro Lens.

I REALLY hate to sell this lens since it is the best “normal” zoom I have ever had for any of my Pentax cameras. My17-70mm was excellent as well, but this lens excels in accuracy and wins hands-down in auto-focus speed. It is also exceptionally sharp, right to the edges. Please check the sample images below for this lens's performance.

Three weeks after I purchased this lens I was offered an incredible deal on a Nikon D700 that I just couldn't pass up, so I went full frame. So the lens is almost new. I was going to keep my Pentax equipment at first, but the economic realities of buying full frame lenses make the sale necessary. I probably would have purchased it again in a Nikon mount, but Nikon has a 24-85 lens which is nearly as fast, but has a longer reach. My loss is your gain. Enjoy. Also check out my K-7 and other lenses I will be adding soon. Thanks
