I have read that this lens can be 67mm or 72mm filter size. What are the differences?

5mm? :cool:

j/k

You can read about it a bit here: http://www.pbase.com/m​iljenko/1850vs1770&pag​e=all (external link)

lol. thanks for the link. I managed to get some more infor from another link and it seems the 72mm is newer and supposedly sharper than the 'older' 67mm version.

Well I collected my Sigma 18-50 from the post office today and its the 72mm filter thread. Initial shots show either I have shaky hands or too used to IS :(

Guess I'll need to practice more.

After 5 years of faithful service, I think it's time to part with this lens.

Anyone have any clue what the street value of this is? In good condition?

Still love using this lens so much sharper than kit and that fast 2.8 comes in so handy. Here are a few portraits from the last few weeks.

Sold this lens for a tamron 17-50 non-VC... I miss the macro capabilities.

I was looking into what's out there for a wide zoom, with macro capability, and learned about the Sigma 18-50. More Googling confused the heck out of me since there seems to be many versions of this lens. Any help with what to look for, spec-wise, for the better macro version, without image stabilization?
Thanks
