    Hi!

    I found 4 Sigma Objectives, all of them 70-300 4.0-5.6

    APO Makro Super II (230 €)
    DG APO Makro (210 €)
    DG Makro (145 €)
    DL Makro Super II (155 €)

    and I don't know what is the best. OK, the last 2 I wouldn't buy. About the second one I read quite good critiques, like here: http://www.photozone.de/8Reviews/lenses/sigma_70300_456/index.htm

    But what about the first one? Does anybody knows this lens? Is it the same as the second one, just without "DG"?

    I know bugger all about Sigmas really as far as DG goes but a serious instructor from the local Tafe tells me, unless it is a EX dont touch one. On his advice I just got a 15-30mm DG EX. To scared to take it outside at the moment but it looks the goods.

    i just bought the second one you are looking at and love it. the apo lens is the way you need to go. a little slower than i would like but for that price it isnt bad at all.

    Go with either of the APOs. the DG version is "optimized for digital' but I bet it's actually no diferent to the other version. On that basis, I'd go with the second one (which is the one that I have)
