Yep - just checked - it's boxed + endcaps + hood, so gone for it. Ffords actually - seemed a good deal at their prices

Might just order a new one now! Although I'm hovering over the Sigma 17-70!

Thanks Roy, I don't want to spend the money on a Pentax 17-70 as its a bit much but the prices for the Sigma seem very reasonable, I wasn't sure if they OS version of the Sigma was meant to be as good as the non OS one I had on my Sony so was a little apprehensive.

yes it is... i also had the previous version so was a bit dubiuos about getting it.

Also the os seems even more effective than the sr on the camera.

Roy,

Have you ever had the Pentax 16-45? Was just wondering if you had any comparison?

royd63uk

Link Posted 09/02/2011 - 16:04
yes i also have used that lens with my GX20

it is also a great lens...but i was happier with the sigma and the person i sold it too also had the 16-45,but also found the sigma better.

HTH

Roy

Thanks Roy, I've been trying to justify this Sigma to myself, as I was going to buy the used 16-45 at 175 but a new one is 240 so for an extra 35 I think the Sigma would be worth it.
