Some advice...

Mine is the second one, the EX DG version. My hood is a little different from the image provided though. Looks more like the hood from the older lens, but the body of the second one lol. But it is the EX DG version. Comes with the nice case, lens caps (front/back) hood and anything else I can find that went to it.
This is a bit off topic for this thread, but I could use some advice: I've found recently using a 28-105 on my K100D that about 85% of my shots are in the 35-70mm range ... but I would like to play around with what I'd call "street macro," very close shots of say a rock, a doorknob, somebody's hand, etc.

I have the 50 f/1.4 and it would seem that the DA 35macro I covet, plus the DA 70mm , would be a good range, but wonder if two macros like the DA 35 plus the Sigma 70 would be a better mix.

And yes to the Forum, despite my earlier adamantine "good is good enough" pro-zoom posts, I've come around that a range of primes (although more of a hassle) is better . Things change.

Thanks for any input,
Brian (FHPhotographer)

Hmm... depends on what you're shooting with the 70mm lens. It's focus throw is quite long and may make quick focus a hassle. I think the the 70 limited is sharper IMO, but I only had the Sigma 70 macro for a few days.
