With Sydney receiving 8.3 million domestic overnight visitors and 2.8 million international visitors (year ending December 2012) Together with a Metropolitan population for the Greater Sydney area of 4.6 million we've got a lot of main stream entertainment that's broadcast nationally.

  6. Item: FS Sigma 35mm F1.4 Art series lens - canon mount Location: Melbourne Price: $600 plus shipping Item Condition: Mint as new Reason for selling: Kicking into renovations and de cluttering... Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, bank deposit Extra Info: this is a very well known lens in the Sigma 35mm F1.4 Art series, its an ideal walk around general use lens on a full frame body and equates to the 50mm focal length on a crop camera, so quite versatile in use. In build and quality it is pretty hard to beat, it undercuts the majors, canon, nikon, sony and even the carl zeiss distagon and yet somehow outperforms them for quality ! as per the review quoted below from dpreview. It comes here in mint condition as you would buy from the shop. The original receipt of purchase from digital camera warehouse is included so you can see this was locally purchased Sigma australian stock and will be full supported by them and not some internet bought grey import. Please ask me for a quote if need to ship, I expect around the $20 mark around australia including insurance and proof of delivery.

But the 35mm F1.4 DG HSM may possibly be its best yet. In fact it's one of those rare lenses for which finding any fault seems almost churlish, so good is its overall performance. Let's start with the optics. It's remarkably sharp, even wide open, outperforming not only its Canon, Nikon and Sony equivalents, but also the far more expensive Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 1,4/35 in lab tests. Chromatic aberration is also impressively well controlled (both lateral and longitudinal), distortion is low and vignetting more-or-less typical for its class. The rendition of out-of-focus regions is generally quite attractive, although complex backgrounds can end up looking rather 'fussy'. The overall result, though, is a lens that delivers fine-looking images with the minimum of fuss, shot after shot. There's nothing to complain about with regards to handling either. Focusing is fast, silent and positive, and we've found our Canon-mount test sample to be very accurate too (although this being an F1.4 prime, you've got to take great care over where you place your focus point). The manual focus ring is smooth and precise, and allows the focus position to be adjusted after autofocus. Several small-but-useful touches, such as a ridged grip on the underside of the barrel, and even a redesigned, unusually-positive centre-pinch front cap, all add to the usability. Sigma has clearly put a lot of thought into every aspect of the lens's design. Equally, it's difficult to find fault with the build quality, which feels reassuringly solid. But one point to note is that Sigma doesn't describe the lens as weather-sealed, unlike its more expensive Nikon counterpart. So if this is particularly important to you, then the Sigma may not be the best choice. The aren't many other obvious reasons not to buy it (although Canon users who value image stabilisation over outright speed, perhaps for video work, should also consider the EF 35mm f/2 IS USM). The Final Word Every now and then we come across a camera or lens that hits a sweet spot of image quality, usability and price that makes it an easy recommendation. The Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG HSM is just such a beast - it manages the impressive trick of being substantially cheaper than the camera manufacturers' equivalents while matching or beating them optically. If you're after a top quality fast prime at this focal length it should be right at the top of your short list, and it easily earns our top award. see below for photos,
