A test shot today taken with it. I am really confused whether I should sell it or not.

This is a great lens. I have the Pentax F 50mm f2.8 macro and the 100mm WR and IMHO the Sigma 70 is as good as the other two. And 70mm makes it perfect for portraits. Here is a pic that I took with the sigma.

I am being buried with mine. It is an FF lens -- will continue to be useful as long as I've got a K-mount camera body.

Thanks a lot everyone. I also never thought of letting it go. But money trumped it (I recently got robbed by my Dentist ). I do not do much macro work and I am buying an FA 50/1.7 for portraits. Also replacing my DA 35 macro for DA 35 f2.4.

I guess folks are used to macros in the 100mm range but it's worth pointing out that the FOV is "equivalent" to 105mm on a full frame body. (and did I mention that it's very sharp?)

I like it at 70mm. Versatile.
