Sigma 17-70mm DC Macro lens
Sigma announces the launch of the Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4.5 DC Macro lens. The Sigma 17-70mm DC Macro lens can be used with wide variety of subjects and it is an ideal large aperture standard zoom lens for dSLR cameras featuring APS-C size image sensor. This lens has a minimum focusing distance of 20cm throughout the entire zoom range. Maximum magnification of 1:2.3 enables close-up photography like a macro lens.
