It's on all the new EX stuff. I love it on my 10-20, the crinkle finish that Nikonians are so fond of absolutely disgusts me. The new finish is also easier to clean. it's really just a matter of preference.

Can't you get a better price with that 35L? Or even, why not sell both off and go with some cheaper intermediate lens like the 50 f/1.4 until prices drop a bit, then sell that again and pick up the 35L and 24-70L again at a cheaper price?

Just a thought

theres anotehr guy who got the sigma 30 too.. used a few times for bmx shooting... fairly new bought 2 months ago. said he wants at least 400

opinions?

I'd definitely go for the first one. It's why I like to buy used lenses: calibration means you don't have to play the "Sigma lotto". For whatever reason, it's also cheaper

And the smooth finish has hit 30mms. They're a bit hard to find on the used market though.

It's probably this one
Edit: I take that back. Hasn't been released yet. Unless he somehow got hit hands on a prototype.

Seriously, I can barely tell what's going on.

2EDIT: I put a sheet of paper on top of the negative and pointed a lamp straight down on it. The result is still pretty bad, but it can give an idea of what it should look like.



... and that brings me to my original point. What's up with the weird vertical black lines on the picture? Is that because of the film touching itself in development? I've never had it happen before.

No, too much hassle for all that. I enjoy and use my gear too much to waste my time finagling a few dollars. I really am considering selling the 24-70 for the 16-35, not just because of the current market, though it is goading me a bit.

Actually, I think it's just the newer finish Sigma 30s. My crinkle finish 30 has the MF/AF switch to the left of the focusing window.

I'd still grab the $310 one. Calibrated by Sigma and $90 cheaper. That money could be put to much better use, in my opinion. Doesn't look like you've a tripod in your sig anywhere...

OLD FINISH. Its too big. The max I would want to bring around is a body + lens (on R-Strap, no need for a bag) and maybe 2 extras. If I want to bring everything, I'll use the Think Tank Airport Acceleration which I think my friend stole.

I think the Nikon ones don't have it if I remember correctly, theres no option in camera on Canons to turn AF off, so they need a switch.
