just bought my new lens 70-200 2.8 sigma.

The store had two of them in stock, one of which has the plain matte black

finish, while the other is matte black with this sparkle stuff on it. I guess i never noticed the sparkle stuff on my 24-70 f2.8 but it is there. I was just wondering if there was adifference in the two lenses and if so do i need to go back and exchange for the other one. They are both EX APO lenses, with the same stock # and bar code #. Both appeared to function fine on my camera with similar results. Honestly i bought the sparkle one just because now it looks like its a matching set but if the other one is superior i have no problems giving it up.

Both felt about the same in weight but i did not pay attention to see if the other was made of metal. I will have to check that out. any other feed back is greatly appreciated. thanks Ecap
