p.1 #1 · News Sigma lens- Glad I'm not superstitious


My Sigma 17-70 f2.8 DC OS HSM-C came in today. Check out the lens number on this baby (013). To my delight, after checking it out "hand held" only for now, not really a test, it seems to be really sharp all the way through from 17-70mm. The OS also works very well as far as I can tell from what little I've used it. I'll post some test I'll be able to do next week if anyone is interested let me know.

I just though the #013 was unique and like I said, I'm glad I'm not superstitious.





I've never had a lens with an unlucky number! YIKES!

Nice Don! Let us know how it works out. I am interested in the new art f1.8 zoom that's for sure!

I don't think that's the lens number. I believe Sigma has started putting the year of manufacture on the side of their lenses.

+1

I have seen at least one other review where the lens itself was also marked '013' in the reviewers' photos.

(Duhhh)! Your probably right ebrandon & dwweiche. I'd never seen a lens number that small and never thought of the year 2013.

I also belive it's the year. I have 012 on my Sigma 35/1,4 that I bought around New Year. The lens number have a lot more than 3 digits.
