New Glass

Thanks to a large and backdated pay rise from work, I was able to splash out a bit over the weekend and get two new lenses - a Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 and a Sigma 18-50mm f2.8 Macro, the latter of which only arrived this morning.

The 70-200 gets little limelight with Olympus users - so I will be interested to hear what you think of it

I have the 18-50 on loan from Sigma and I'm impressed at how they have kept the size of the lens under control considering it's a constant aperture f/2.8 lens.
