Default Sigma 18-125mm f3.5-5.6

I picked up the Sigma 18-125mm for 1/3 of what it's retail price is so I feel I got an excellent deal. So far, I like it. It's pretty quick to focus, has a nice walk-around range, it's light, AND IT WAS CHEAP! From the E-620 & Sigma 18-125mm.

Hey Gary: those look good. Seems like your deal worked out well for you. And at 18-125mm it is a nice range for a macro lens. You can also use that as another walk around lens.

Thanks, Steve. It not classified as a true macro lens. In fact, the second shot was about as close as I could get at about 12". However, that was fully racked-out. I didn't try wide-angle. Hmmmmmmmm...

Thanks, Ted. I may not get a LOT of use out of it, but good glass at a crazy-low price is hard to pass up.

That second shot looks real good and it looks to have a nice bokeh too which is always a nice plus

Thanks, Harj. It appears it's going to work out really well.
