Sigma, 400mm, f/5.6 MF

A local shop has one of these for sale. It has no documentation.


It was gray in color with an attached hood. The glass appeared very clean, with no scratches.

Anyone have any idea of the worth of a lens such as this?

Moderators, if have this in the wrong place, please feel free to move it.

I have the AF version of the Sigma 400/5.6. I paid $175US for it about a year ago. It does a decent job. It would be better on a K-series with SR than on my DS without it. I could probably pull out some shots with it if you need them.

The local guy wants $159 for it and I get the feeling from him that there is no negotiation in his price.

It sounds like a pretty fair price to me, although I didn't find any elsewhere to compare prices with.

I recently bought a MF Tokina 400mm f5.6 for $125.00. I do not know how it compares to the Sigma...but the price is in the same range.

Several of those(Sigma 400) sold recently on ekk-bay for around 200.00. One was 190.00 the other 225.00. Sounds like a reasonable price as long as it is in good working order with clean glass.
