Most newer Sigma Teles are HSM (for Canon/Nikon), but they are black not white!

... This is probably an older model

Well I just bought it for $95... getting it dropped off on Wednesday. Figured for that price I couldnt go wrong even with ERR 99 it should work in Manual mode which is what I fire 90% of the time at longer focal lengths... but it does *look* like one of those Canon white "L"enses lol.... I may have to tape or paint it black not to feel like an arse with a pretend Canon L series LOL

Looks like some Sigmas Ilooked atback in 1997-1999. I know HSM was "new" in canonlenses then andthat Sigma picked up on the HSM quite fast...

-I dont know that much i think... :-):-):-)
