Thanks JerlnCanada, that yellow color is the lens glare/flare.

So I've decided I want this lens. Would you guys take the chance on a used one off ebay? I'm torn on the idea because of the apparent left side softness.

Thoughts?

I bought mine on eBay. Buy from a reputable seller, ask questions about the lens before bidding, use Paypal for protection.

I wouldn't buy off eBay, I don't know why, but unless it's a great deal, I'd prefer to buy local where I can test it or off of here. Plus, most on eBay I've seen have been more expensive than what you can find here or locally.


EWR72, great shot! Very sharp.

yeah seems that 400 is about the going rate on there, maybe i'll just look to new since they so rarely come up on here. $80 is not a terrible premium to pay for a 4 year warranty.

$480 for new isn't bad. But there's a chance you can get a bad copy or one that has issues focusing and have to deal with Sigma, but then again a used lens that performs perfectly on one body doesn't necessarily mean it will work perfectly on another persons body. Some people don't register their sigmas, so some used lenses will include an empty warranty card, where you can register it and get the same 4 year warranty as if it was brand new.

Welp, I just bought one on amazon I can't wait to have some fun with something this wide :) Im sure it'll be great for the trip to China in March.

If I get one that's left-soft I'll just ask amazon for an exchange, they are typically very good about that sort of thing.

When you test it out, make sure that you are completely paralell to what you are shooting or you wil drive yourself crazy trying to decide if there is side softness. Best thing is if you think one side is softer than the other; shoot some shots upside down and check if the softness then shows on the flip side. Also keep in mind that a certain amount of corner softness is normal in UWA's.
