Sigma 24-70mm ,I had one awhile ago and always regretted selling it.I see some for sale second hand from time to time but never sure what age they are.No one seems to know.

You are related to Ozzies ??!! , well I wouldnt hold that against you although some might.

I have been admiring the paintily affect you have achieved with some of your work,is that done entirely in photoshop ? plus plugins perhaps ??

cheers

You should hear what they say about you guys down there

I use Topaz Simplify 2 .... I figure some artists are going to paint my stuff .... may as well put them out business right off aye??

Don't know anything about the Sig 24-70, new you can find it for $500+. You'll get a lot of info if you ask in a New topic

Cheers Mate
