I would have been happy if i would have found one of the two Sigma APO 180mm macro lenses that where introduced around 1990. There was a 5.6-version and a 2.8. These lenses were not quite a commercial succes and because of that they are a little bit hard to find.

If someone told me that i would find both of them in one day....

First i found the 2.8-version at the fair in Doesburg. The looks of this lens are long gone by the disastrous Zen-coating. The inside still functions as it should.

Half an hour later, i found the 5.6-version. Outside is less damaged, optics are like new.

That 2.8 lens is great! I've seen your picture of it on flickr, looking forward to see some samples from it!
