Sigma 70-300 4/5.6 D APO Lens..

Hi All,

Can anyone tell me the difference between the above lens with the red circle around the barrel and another version that i have seen with a gold circle around the barrel and it also comes with a screw in filter like attatchment to give 1-1 macro......

Take care
John

Think it could be gold is EX (well, my 105mm EX has a gold band) and red is APO (my non-APO 70-300mm has no band) but there isn't a 70-300mm EX lens, so maybe wrong

Hi Mark,

No i dont think that could be the answer as the lens with the gold band is also an APO lens

Think there was an old system of colour but I can't remember what they were. Much better to go with the descriptions, which for the 70-300mm are APO and/or DG
