Sigma 8-16 confused
I've bought last month my first wide angle lense, a Sigma 8-16 for my D7000 from amazon.co.uk (not a reseller) and i asked for a replacement as i wasn't too satisfied from the first one and i was curious if my copy wasn't that good (I know and i agree that is first on me to learn how to master an ultra wide angle lens).
A week ago i received the second one and surprise-surprise it has another build than the first one. The new one hasn't that velour texture on it. Also you can see the white spot mount is on different place.
I have searched on the internet but haven't seen any "update" of the lens.
On the left is the "old" one and on the right is the "new" one.
Also, i have uploaded 4 quickly but full detailed photos with the "old" and the "new" lens for a quick comparison and i can't decide which i should keep.
I would appreciate any help, comment.
Thank you, Petros
