Sigma 70mm f2.8 EX DG macro at B&H
Posted By: onlineflyer, 10-12-2019, 03:26 PM

Just a heads up that B&H has the hard to find and highly recognized Sigma 70mm f2.8 EX DG macro on their used site, for those that might be interested.

Used Sigma 70mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro AF Lens for Pentax AF 270109

If I didn't already have one, it would be gone.

Same here. I have 50, 90, and 105 as well as bellows and close-up rings, but still hard to resist. I have wanted one since I went low and bought my Sigma 50/2.8 EX DG Macro. The 70mm ($$$) was what I really wanted.

And still there's another one in the marketplace, best deal of the three. For a hard to find lens, this is amazing.

Steve, this one has your name on it. Don't you hate me?

There are two now, one with the hood and the other without, both EX. I'm surprised the difference is only $14, I'd think the original hood is worth more, even if it is the fiddly screw type.

"fiddly" implies that it may only occasionally be a pain to work with....

it's almost as bad as the hood on the Tamron Adaptall 17mm....

That's a big gap between 35 and 105. A 70 fits into the middle very nicely.

As weird as it could sound I dont use this 105mm much.
It is either 35 or 200...

There is a bit of a gap between 35mm and 105mm.
