    Description

    1. Sigma Super-wide 24mm f/2.8 + Fotasy C/Y to E adapter ($79.00 + shipping) [Available]
    • In excellent+ conditions on both optics and cosmetics.
    • No defects, glass is clean, and focusing ring is buttery smooth and well damped for manual focusing.
    • Comes with Fotasy C/Y to Sony E adapter
    • Comes with a compatible lens hood on 52mm filter size, pick either the metal or the plastic hood.
    • Comes with both front cap for the hood and rear cap in Sony E mount as pictured
    • Only reason in selling is that I have two copies with other one labeled as super-wide II on Pentax KA mount. I actually preferred the metal build and focusing ring on this version but I have to pick the Pentax version to stay as I have Pentax and Sony gear to share lenses. In casual test shots, I can't tell the difference between the two.

    The lens works out quite well and the only thing that I can complain about this lens is the absence of the original lens hood, my metal lens hood is working alright but I think it is not as effective with flare control as the original lens hood, I may try out a plastic wide hood. And I will try to do test shots for my other better copy of Sigma super-wide II 24mm f/2.8 in Pentax KA mount with original hood for comparison.

    Cheers,
    Hin

    Some b&w in post processing, all shots were taken with the Sigma super-wide 24mm f/2.8 in C/Y mount. Most were shot in f/5.6, the close up likely in f/2.8.

    With the metal lens hood in the original listing, the sigma is found more prone to flare. I have another plastic wide hood and I will leave it to buyer to pick and choose between good looking round metal hood or a plastic hood that appears better with flare control.

    20150510-DSC00185.
    I leave this to buyer decision to pick one of the two hoods -- round metal lens hood or the plastic one in the picture above.

    This is a decent lens, I am selling only because of two copies of this lens in different mount. The sale includes the E adapter and the lens hood.

    If you still have it, I'll take it. If so, PM me your Paypal account email address and I'll take the vented hood. If yoiu have already sold it, please let me know that too.

    A correction as the metal lens hood is not vented. The item is packaged and ready to ship tomorrow morning. Marking this as completed next.
