Micro Four Thirds Sigma 60mm 2.8 Lens in Silver plus Hoya UV Filter

I bought these on 6th March 2014 from SRS. I have not even got round to registering the Sigma 3 year warranty.

I put the Hoya UV HMC filter on the moment I took the lens out of the box.

Condition is as you would expect and comes complete with everything as new. The pouch, lens hood have not been used and all boxed

Im only selling as I have a habit of buying lenses to try but the focal length is often not what I need and as I already own the wonderful 45mm this is not needed anymore. The lens on my EM5 is very sharp and clear.

I paid a total of 149.98 for all of this.

Im asking 120. Remember the warranty has not yet being registered with Sigma so you get just under 3 years.

Re: Micro Four Thirds Sigma 60mm 2.8 Lens in Silver plus Hoya UV Filter

I've got this lens and I really like it.

I'm assuming it's the smooth-barrelled later version from your links (the Amazon one doesn't work for me).

And is it black or silver ?

FWIW I quite like the smooth barrel, but would probably have preferred the earlier version.

Also, your price used seems a little high - I got mine new for GBP129 from SRS, I think, a few months ago.

What is your new price ?

In my opinion, this is the poor-person's version of the Oly 75 / 1.8 = discuss :-D
