Combining two of Sigma''s most popular lenses - and a compact camera bag - this complete kit is also a great bargain for the SLR Photograher.

This set includes Sigma''s 28-80 F 3.5-5.6 Autofocus Zoom and the 70-300 F 4-5.6 Autofocus Zoom lenses and rugged and stylish mini-gadget bag for your camera, lenses and other equipment that you''ll need to take those award winning photographs destined to be in future.


The 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 Macro is a new generation of compact standard zoom lens that retains the same 1:2 (Half Life-size) Tele-macro capabilities of its predecessor. This new lens also incorporates a Helical Focusing system for convenient use of polarizing or graduated filters. This same design also allows for a Perfect Hood to be used.

This lens also utilizes a new optical design, and a ''''flare-cut'''' aperture, providing even better optical performance. A convenient ''''Depth Scale'''' is displayed on the lens barrel to help calculate Depth-of-Field. This is one of the the most desirable lens in the 28-80mm category, and includes the hood

'''' Another inexpensive lens with impressive results, a fine all-round zoom with quite good close-up performance.''''

Comments about Sigma 28-80 mm & 70-300 mm Two Lens Zoom Kit plus Gadget Bag for Minolta AF:

The set I have has the 28-90mm with it. So far for the price I paid for it I can't complain. The zoom is pretty sharp, has good colors. I even did a test with an APO 70-300mm sigma lens and this lens at times has better color and sharper picture.The 28-90mm lens I have is a good Portrait lens. So I would think the 28-80mm would be about the same.
For the price you really can't go wrong.

Comments about Sigma 28-80 mm & 70-300 mm Two Lens Zoom Kit plus Gadget Bag for Minolta AF:

I know there are better lenses out there but I haven’t used them.....mainly because I have no money. I’ve had this set for over two years now and they have preformed beautifully! Unlike the other review listed my lenses haven’t broken once and I’ve gotten some Great shots. From an amateur photographer/ hobbyist standpoint I would say these are good lenses to get if you’re just starting out and you want a lot of versatility and don’t want to drop too much dough!
