[SOLD] Sigma 24mm 2.8 macro super-wide II; Sigma 20-40mm/2.8

Sigma 24mm 2.8 macro super-wide II multi-coated with 'A' setting, MF - EX+ $125 - SOLD

Sigma Aspherical EX DG IF zoom, 20-40mm 2.8, AF - EX+ $230 - SOLD

Both are in excellent or better condition - I can't see anything wrong with them. They work perfectly and look almost like new all the way around. They both come with the original Sigma rear cap and a generic replacement front cap. The 20-40mm also comes with a 1A filter in nice condition, and a lightweight third-party screw-on hood.

I just got an Auto-Focus version of the 24mm super-wide II, so I don't need this manual focus model any more. And my recent acquisition of an FA20-35mm/4 makes the 20-40mm 2.8 Auto-Focus redundant.

The 24mm super-wide II macro focuses to 0.18m (< 0.6 ft.) at a 1:4 ratio, and it is quite compact - easy to put in your pocket or a small lens case on your belt.

The 20-40mm really out-does the 24mm in most respects, still focusing amazingly close for a zoom ( < 1 ft.) and producing very nice results even at f/2.8, while allowing auto-focus and easy re-framing. I understand it originally sold for between $500 and $1000, and I can see why. If you search the web you can see a guy in Europe has taken some great low-light/night shots with it. This is a relatively big lens with a 82mm filter. I get good results on both film and digital - it seems to have very good corner sharpness, even on full-frame film. I think its larger size contributes to its good performance. More information on this lens is available here: Sigma - Lenses - Lens Chart

Payment by: PayPal

Shipping to US: USPS priority mail - $8 for 24mm, $12 for 20-40mm, or $12 for both

Shipping to Canada: $12 for 24mm; $22 for 20-40mm

Examples from 20-40mm 2.8

Here's are two quick example from the Sigma 20-40mm 2.8 lens taken on my K200D. Not my best, but ones I could pull up quickly.

I am a huge fan of the 24mm mini-wide--probably my most fun lens. It's sharp and delivers sweet bokeh and I always have it with me. Like you I upgraded from MF to AF but more because it seemed like a good idea than in response to a real need.

I've been thru 3 copies of this lens before (bought it, sold it, bought it back, got another one...) and finally sold all when I got the FA* 24. Even now, this lens still calls out to me...

Its one heck of a lens, tack sharp wide open, and the best feature of its lens is its close focusing function, giving you 1:4 magnification - not what I would call a true macro, but it gives very interesting composition options that no other wide angle lens does.

I'll admit I'm tempted by the FA* but the close focus and the compactness of the Sigma win out every time.

Here are some samples (the wine bottle, wide-open)
