LBA: The cream of Sigma
Dec 29, 2012

I postponed purchase of the Sigma 500/4.5 due to announcement of 560/5.6. One year and many missed great opportunities later I finally got it alone with two other outstanding Sigma lenses.  I was looking for a good deals on these two Sigmas for about a year. Murphy law: they all poped up at the same time with 500/4.5 purchase.

So, there is my answer to the Pentax 560/5.6 proposal:

Sigma 500 1:4.5 APO EX DG

Sigma 180mm 1:3.5 APO Macro DG

and Sigma 8-16mm 1:4.5-5.6 DC HSM

All together they cost me $1000 less than 560/5.6 alone. And all of them are unbelievably great when paired with both K-5 and K-01.
