We are pleased to announce Richard Bagdonas, of Jacksonville, Florida as our May #SigmaSuperFan. Here is an excerpt from his entry that we really liked!
“Coming recently back into the photography field after a long hiatus, I started myself off with a camera class to introduce me back and also learn more about DSLRs. Working with my kit lenses, I immediately knew that I was quickly going to outgrow them, so I started researching.
One of my instructors lent me her lens during one outing and I quickly found my first Sigma lens, my 18-250mm. This lens proved to be a great addition to my camera bag, and stayed on the camera almost always. As I practiced more, shot more, and started focusing to the type of photography that I primarily enjoy (landscapes, cityscapes, and nature) I went back to the researching and happily chose the next member of the family to join us, my 17-70 2.8-4. I cannot begin to express just how much I love this lens. I have shot from sunrise to deep sky with it and have yet to find a time I wasn’t happy with the shots it took. It is my primary walking lens now.
Now that my son has joined in and adopted the 18-250, I know that I will have to start looking for another lens to pair with my 17-70! I have been very happy with Sigma and they will always be a contender for my lens choices. I enjoy finding a company that I can trust in their quality, service and product & stay a life long advocate of them. Thank you Sigma for bringing me into the family!”
Richard is a passionate hobbyist, who first got into photography with a 35mm film camera many years ago. After a long break, he got back into digital photography about three years ago when his son, Daniel, purchased him a DSLR kit as a father’s day gift. He’s got the 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 DC OS HSM Macro and 17-70mm F2.8-4.0 DC OS HSM | Contemporary lenses in his bag, while his son has just picked up the 150-500mm F5-6.3 as well! We had a great conversation with Richard about his photography.
