[SOLD] Sigma High-Speed Wide 28mm f/1.8 II Asph. AF (Worldwide)

Sigma High-Speed Wide 28mm f/1.8 II Asph. AF

Asking Price
USD $275.00 Net

Item Location
Toronto, Canada

Item Description
Sigma High-Speed Wide 28mm f/1.8 II Aspherical AUTO FOCUS.

Includes original bayonet tulip hood and front-cap. Generic rear-cap. Without original package or documentation.

This lens is in good shape and the glass is clean. There are some minor marks in the soft-touch body and screen-printed lettering.

Recently, I sold the (otherwise identical) manual-focus version of this lens to acquire this AF version from another PF member. After using it for a few weeks, I still mostly use manual-focus and already have a Voigtlaender 40mm f/2.0 so don't need both lenses in this focal-length range.

On my K-m and K-x bodies, the maximum aperture shows as f/1.7.
It has 7 aperture blades and has wonderfully soft bokeh. You can see samples from my earlier MF version here.
It's been called the poor-man's DA31/1.8 Ltd...

Compared to newer Sigma 28mm f/1.8 lenses, it's relatively compact and does not block the built-in flash and has a 58mm filter thread. Approximate physical dimensions are 67mm x L65mm x 310g. The physical size is very similar to the DA 18-55II, there are some comparison photos below.

With this small size, it plays really nice with built-in flash. Unlike newer Sigma lenses, it focuses in the same direction as Pentax lenses, a nice touch. Minimum focus distance is 30cm.

It's a full-frame lens with an aperture-ring and does work on film bodies!







This lens' size compared to DA 18-55 II:
