    Sigma 28-80 Macro

    Got my new ( old ) lens today ... Sigma 28-80 Macro , these were 35mm lenses ( full frame )
    Wow snapped a few pictures , ill take some more , but he macro looks to work OK !
    For $27 shipped , these lenses might be nice entry level macro lenses for anyone wanting to try macro ...
    The Sigma 28-80 is a bargain bin lens ATM ...

    I have a couple of these - with and without the macro.

    The macro is not a true 1:1 reproduction and is only really a close focus.

    They are, however remarkably sharp for what they are.
    Greg Bartle,
    I have a Pentax and I'm not afraid to use it.

    We can talk about the lens ? cant we ...

    Pictures are representative of the lens , for those who may never have used a Sigma Lens ( old Sigma Lens ) ..

    Will give them an idea ...

    I will see about posting a picture or two in the Macro section ..
