I've got one lens still in need of a home: the Sigma 28-80 macro II.
This inexpensive little wide-to-short-tele macro zoom lens is perfect for
beginners or photographers who frequently drop their cameras
(*coughcough*Larry*cough*wheeze*). Break it and you won't be out much
dough! It comes with a hood, caps and capkeeper strap already installed,
and is guaranteed not to be infested with lensgremlins, aperture-elves or
focus-gnomes. You can't beat this deal!
If you've got a kid with a Pentax who needs a basic lens, or who is
interested in macro, this is the lens for you!
So how's $15 sound? Worth it? You betcha!
$3 first class shipping in the US.
