I went to Yodobashi-camera a couple days ago and held the SIGMA 45mm F2.8 DG DN Contemporary lens in my hand. It’s smaller than I thought it would be; being that Sigma lenses seems to be getting bigger and heavier in my opinion, and it was nice looking and felt like it was well made. I successfully fought off the urge to make a quick impulse buy but I can see myself getting it in the future when I have some money to burn. Also, the lens hood was not on display but I read that it’s made of metal instead of plastic. If that’s true, it would be the only metal lens hood I’ve ever seen on a Sigma lens.
