A brilliant dual purpose lens-Sigma 70mm f2.8 EX DG Macro Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
A brilliant dual purpose lens-Sigma 70mm f2.8 EX DG Macro

Asking Price
325.00 USD

Item Location
Northern California (United States)

Item Description
Item for sale: Sigma 70 mm F2.8 EX DG Macro. 70mm F2.8 EX DG Macro - Macro Lenses - ( Comes with all items that I got when I bought new except OEM rear cap. A pentax rear cap is included.

Condition: like new. The glass is clean, no scratches, fungus or damage of any kind. The only thing I could find are some dirt or other soil spots on the exterior of the lens hood. If you look closely at the pictures you may be able to see it. This obviously doesn't affect the image quality at all.

What you get is a brilliant dual purpose lens (macro and portrait) that I found requires literally no sharpening. Full frame ready. As a macro, stop it all the way down and you still get detailed images. Open it up and you get creamy bokeh and razor thin sharp images.

The focus limiting switch means you won't have a lens that will be hunting for focus in low light or low contrast situations. Can be handheld for macro if you have a steady hand or lock it on a tripod for seriously sharp images.

PM me if you have any questions. And I can send links to full size images.

Some images taken with the lens without a tripod.

Great double-talent lens indeed.

Very sharp at f/2.8 already.

I have one of these and am very happy with it.
