LBA: Sigma 28mm f1.8 Aspherical II

Today I finally found a fast prime lens for indoor photography. My FA 50 was not wide enough for that purpose.

I found a used Sigma 28mm f1.8 lens. The one I bought is the older, considerably smaller and lighter version. It looks well balanced on my K-x.

The outside of the lens is not in mint condition, some of the text markings are a little damaged, but It looks fine to me. Optically the lens looks superb with no scratches or markings on the glass.

Some quick test shots wide open (which is actually f1.7 instead of f1.8 ass well on the camera settings as in the exif data.):

I paid € 150,- (=approx. $ 215) for this lens, I personally think that is too much for an old 3rd party lens in not mint condition, but right now there are no alternatives for a decent price. I hope I will enjoy this lens a lot.
