Sigma EX DG 70-200mm f2.8 HSM II Macro $675

Prices on these lenses are going up ever since they discontinued them. This one is going for $675. I saw one sell for $619 a few days ago and another $725 some weeks back.

The OS versions are very rare used, I've seen a couple new from Japan with BuyNow prices at a grand.

That's a pretty good deal as when sold new they were about $1200 ?

The HSM II versions would go for about 650-700 on the used market, with the OS versions going for $900 used.

When they are sold honestly on e-bay I've noticed used pentax mounted lenses tend to go cheaper than what you'd expect reading this forum (in Australia.) I bought an HSM II that still had warranty for $450 and an FA77 for $550. I've also sold a few lenses and had the same experience as a seller.

Whilst waiting for the right price for my buys I watched quite a few auctions with suspicious bidding practices. I've often wondered how much the used lens market is artificially driven by dishonest auction practices...

I did some sluething on one in particular and confirmed (90% sure) I got shilled by a one time PF member no less!

Maybe it's just the constrained supply on the Sigma lens, but I'd still be careful not to buy into the hype.

Wow, glad I found a refurb in May, direct from the Sigma Outlet for $479 with 90 day warranty! Great refurb too - spotless glass and 9+ on the body. Added a 2 year Mack warranty from Adorama for $30 on top of that...!
