Pentax System saved me so much money
May 31, 2012

Today I was again really glad I chose Pentax as my system 41 years ago.

I wanted to buy a 70-200 2.8 with HSM/USM and found that digitalcamerawholesale still have the Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 II EX DG HSM Macro for Aus$549 ! The EX indicates it's their premium range and DG indicates it's Full Frame capable ! No, digitalcamerawholesale are not grey importers.

They would have sold more of these lenses, if they'd correctly put them in the zoom category rather than fixed focus !

If I'd owned another system, I would have paid a LOT more for equivalent functionality (with OS in lens) -

Canon - Sigma Lens 70-200 f2.8 APO EX DG OS HSM $1409
or Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM $2769

Nikon - Sigma Lens 70-200 f2.8 APO EX DG OS HSM $1409
or NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II $2869

Sony - Sigma Lens 70-200 f2.8 APO EX DG OS HSM $1409
or Sony 70-200mm f/2.8G $2345
