Sigma 70-300 gold ring?
Mar 2, 2005

I've been watching for a good deal for a zoom for my Rebel, and have read the messages about the Sigma 70-300 APO II w/ red ring as a good price/performance lens.

This guy is selling the model w/ the gold ring. Is the only difference between red/gold the "chipping" that may or may not work w/ digital (his auction states it works w/ digital) or is there a build/glass quality difference as well?

Here's the auction in question:
