Selling one of my lenses, the Sigma 24-70 2.8 EX DG Macro. I hate to part with it, but I haven't used it much since getting the Samyang 85 1.4 and there's a couple of bills that I was not expecting (moved houses, non double glazed windows, winter, go figure ).

Anyway, here's the obligatory product photo, pardon the "bedroom studio setup":




What's included:

* Sigma 24-70 2.8 EX DG Macro
* Lens hood.
* Carrying case.
* Box with documentation.
* 82mm Marumi UV Filter.

The lens is in good condition. No dust specks, no scratches, focusing is fast and switch from manual to auto is snappy (you have to push/pull to switch from manual to auto focus).

Here are some photos taken using the lens:










Best things about this lens are:

1. Big focusing ring.
2. Short focusing distance.
3. Weight (maybe a con for many, but for my GX-10 with grip, it just balances it out).
4. A bit wider. 2.8's usually start at 28mm, and this is 24mm, not that wide but very usable as a walk around lens.
5. Beautiful bokeh.

Okay, if I go on any further I probably would not want to sell this lens anymore. So, price is 270.00 plus postage (Royal Mail Special Delivery) plus PayPal fees. This will probably go on eBay Sunday evening if I don't get a response here.
