    Those looking out for the Sigma 50mm f/2.8 Macro like Donald's can check this. Act quickly...

    The lens on the second link appear to have some spots on the front glass. How can we tell if its dust or fungus? From their low "buy now" price, can we assume it is fungus? That means need to add in cleaning cost if we buy it?

    On ebay, my policy is don't assume anything. Contact seller. Ask for more info, ask for more pix showing the flaw. Buy only if you're comfortable

    Some test shots with this lens. i must say, i'm pleasantly surprised. the price : performance ratio is fantastic!

    the following were shot with the lens on a K-5. pop-up flash with diffuser.

    #1 - the boken is very nice and the sharpness is very good.


    #2 - my usual "water-droplet test". stepped down slightly to F5, no flash. sharpness is good and bokeh very pleasing.


    #3 - because its a small and light setup, it allows me to close-in and respond quickly to any subjects. this JS would have been a little hard to catch if i had to struggle with a mono-pod or tripod.


    #4 - it renders colours beautifully. Not much PP done. just the basic tweaking in camera raw.

    Buy it now price is pretty reasonable lah!
    I use this lens often and it is an excellent lens for shooting still life.

    A couple of images that I've taken with this lens.

    more pix from this lens taken during last night's macro outing with a few of the guys here.

    K5, Sigma 50mm F2.8, Vivitar 2x macro converter, AF160FC

    #1) Tiger Beetle


    #2) Jumping spider


    #3) Lynx spider
    i've taken lynx spiders so many times from this perspective but its still fun to see how different lenses responds to the same subject.
