 Post subject: Sigma 17-70?
PostPosted: Wed Oct 22, 2008 1:07 am 
Hello everyone

I'm looking into purchasing the Sigma 17-72 as a mid-range zoom lens, and as my macro lens. It looks like a great choice... Does anybody have samples of some macro shots that they have taken with this lens? And what is its magnification ration?

Cheers.

See a review of the Sigma AF 17-70mm f/2.8-4.5 DC here. The results are not bad and the magnification goes down to 1:2.3 which is quite high and would certainly satisfy most of my needs. But unfortunately no macro test-shots.

Thank you very much Thomas!

I also found this group at flickr... there are quite a few good macro shots in there.
