FS: - Sigma 30mm f1.4

Hi all,

At the end of last year I moved to Canon, so selling up my Olympus gear

So up for sale is my Sigma 30mm f1.4. It's been a real nice portrait lens.
It doesn't come with the box, but it comes in the case, along with the lens hood.

I can post pictures if you like.

I'd like £200 for this (plus postage probably around £10 RMSD)
BT only (no paypal), or if you wish to collect then cash on collection is fine too.

I also have e-510 twin lens kit for sale too, but I think some local people are interested in this.

Thanks, any questions, please ask.

Collection is welcome too (nottingham)

p.s - If interested, please reply to the thread first instead of going straight to PM, it makes it easier for other members to see if something has sold

Re: FS: - Sigma 30mm f1.4

Hi, Can you post some shots of the lens and some shots taken with the lens.

I have tried two of the 30mm F1.4 and both were soft on different camera bodies.

Re: FS: - Sigma 30mm f1.4

Right, i've downloaded a lens focus test sheet.

Interesting experiment....

I tested the lens on 2 cameras:

E-510 with 2,500 shutter count
E-510 with 14,500 shutter count

The results were different with both cameras.

Below are the results from e-510 with 2.5k shutter count.

Re: FS: - Sigma 30mm f1.4

And here are the results from the other e-510 with 14.5k shutter count.

As you can see, quite different results....
Possible that the autofocus on this camera is starting to go off? I don't know.

Go on then

I'll get it packaged up and sent out tomorrow, so you'll receive it Wednesday via RMSD.

Shall we move to PM now?

Thanks

I think it's a great bang for bucks lens overall. It's capable but challenging at times.
