Item Description
Sigma 105mm EX DG macro lens. This is the EX DG version and not the earlier EX. The glass is clean and the lens is in excellent working condition. It includes the original caps, hood and box. I can't find the padded case that came with it. I don't think I have it anymore. The only reason that I am selling this lens is because I have a D FA 100/2.8 WR. Shipping is included in the U.S.A. ($10 extra on shipping to Canada if needed.) Actual shipping and insurance to other parts of the world at my discretion.





Mounted on K20d to illustrate the size (camera NOT included)



Extended to 1:1 position (camera NOT included)



Fully extended to the 1:1 position with hood attached. Attaches via 58mm threads.

Just realise you are the professor of entomology. You should be our in house consultant for all critters and six legged creatures.

I have done that some in a few threads and pm. It is actually hard sometimes with only 1 photo because there are at least a million different described insects and many that aren't. I have seen several of your macros of Salticidae (jumping spiders) etc. and you have done some impressive macro work.

colloquial word is JS, (jumping spiders). So now I learnt a new word Salticidae

I was after jumping spiders a period of time becos of its beauty and variety. I was trying to magnify using extension tube to increase magnification and having different set-up and diffusers and additional sources of flash light to capture those beauty. Quite challenging. I am from the school of hard knocks, more discarded images than keepers. For every one keepers, there are more than 10 discarded images.

This sigma, no takers? I am surprise at this price point with AF and giving macro 1:1 magnificaiton. This lens provides reasonable working distance for insects and its sharp and has a nice oof. Highly recommended if one is looking for a macro expecially....
