Re: Sigma Macro lenses

Thank you for the kind words Yardcoyote. I opted for the 70mm, despite being a portraitist (if you can call it that!), as I have an auto chinon 50mm f1.4 m42 lens, which works beautifully on the K30 with focus peaking, and thought I would like to try a different focal length AND macro. It is great fun and offers great IQ, though the AF can be a tad slow. But, I think that is common amongst macro lenses of longer focal lengths. I'll bet the 50mm will be a winner on whichever body you choose
