Item Description
Sigma 70-200 F2.8 II APO EX DG Macro
This has been my go to lens to shoot sports (Soccer and Ice Hockey) & grade school plays. In April 2018 my much used K-30 suffered the dreaded aperture block failure. Thinking I was headed for a K-1 I finally sent it back to Sigma to get the K-1 update. See link to post here

(Update) Use of Pentax mount SIGMA interchangeable lenses when attached to the K1 -

When I sent it up to Sigma the HSM (Hyper-Sonic Motor) was working fine. When they received the lens they told me it was dead. $155 latter it was replaced and sent back to me. It has not been mounted to a camera since. I still get lots of requests to shoot youth hockey. I've decided its not worth the effort if my son no longer plays plus the fact I've got nothing to mount it to has led me to selling it. Included in the photos is the paper work from Sigma stating the lens has been up dated to the K-1 mount and the HSM has been replaced. I have the original box and most of the paper work that came with it. I will pay shipping to the continental USA via UPS Ground or Priority Mail. I've priced it at $575 because with the new motor & mount its nearly a new lens. If you have a K-1 and don't want to pay for the Pentax 70-200 This is your best alternative.

Last Bump

This will be my last bump for this lens. If you want it make an offer. If I get a K1 before I sell it I will take it down.

Just a bump in support of this model lens.

AF is super fast and quiet, image quality is good, works fine with my Pentaxes from K-x to K-1.
