About that Sigma 17-70: I have the same lens and indeed the box is saying it is a macro lens. Still, there is no inscription like 'macro' on the lens somewhere. I first thought the shop had provided me with the wrong box. Now I think it was the right box. But closest focusing distance 0,20 metre, can that be called macro? (bump)

I think it is called macro because of its close focusing ability. It is not a true macro lens, but I was positively surprised when trying to take a close up photo of an item on my desk. The front element almost touched the item and it still focused right. My box also says Macro but I haven't check the lens. Though there is no other lens like that from Sigma so I think you have a correct one.

Further and last reduction in prices before fleabay. Prices are firm unless you are interested in more than one item.
