Sigma 24-60/f2.8 AF EX DG - $249 AU
Posted By: PJ1, 05-31-2015, 04:59 PM

CR Kennedy is listing this lens new for $249 (Australian dollars) in Pentax mount.

At current exchange rates that is less than $200 US. The lens has good reviews on this site. The DG indicates it has Full Frame coverage. It may be of interest to someone gearing up for FF. I know this lens has been discontinued for some time, so maybe they are cleaning out the store room.

Heck of a price. Looks like it's only available in Australia, though.

Thanks. Just received mine today. Luckily it's a good copy. Spent lunchtime taking photos around a fruit and veg market to test for sharpness. Rubber zoom ring is slightly discoloured but it's probably because it must be at least 8 years old by now. Can't imagine you can get a better lens for $A250--new or second hand. I have some legacy primes ready for the FF but it's also nice to have a good autofocus fast zoom with modern lens coatings.
