Listed: 09-26-2020, 09:55 AM Total Price: 450 Currency: SGD Item Location: Singapore Shipping Destinations: Worldwide 

Sigma 400mm f5.6 AF APO tele-macro prime for sale. Comes with original lens case, front and rear caps, and original tripod collar.

Priced accordingly (in view of condition {see below})
SGD450 obo (include paypal fees, exclude shipping).
(SGD450 is around USD326 to USD338, depending on PayPal exchange rate when processing payment).

Do PM to check on shipping options and estimated shipping cost.

Bought this preowned, i am not original owner.
Rarely use it. Primarily still a zoom lens person, compared to primes.

The bad:
quite an amount of dust / dirt within (see image).
i think i also spotted two little fungus spots (but unable to show them up in images, they're just very small specks).

The good:
cosmetically in great condition. The "zen finish" is still great, no stickiness or peeling.
AF works fine (it works on the K-1).
AF limiter works fine.
Images snapped using this lens come up fine (despite the dust/dirt).

Images of lens (and box and tripod collar are below).

Images snapped by the lens are below as well.
(The MZ-3 was snapped at either the lens' minimum focus distance or very near to its minimum focus distance).
(The road sign, my rough estimate is, it is about 40-50 metres away in straight line distance).

Still a capable lens. Small and light and very portable, for a 400mm prime.

There are several different Sigma 400mm f5.6 models. This one looks like mine, which is the Tele Macro model which takes 77mm filters:
Sigma 400mm F5.6 APO (AF) v3: 1995 > Lens Reviews - Sigma Lenses - Pentax Lens Review Database
This is the most hard-to-find and sought-after model. It is full-frame compatible, although I have only used it on APS-C.

Good luck with the sale.

yeap, correct.

It is the "tele-macro" 400 AF prime.
Very handy minimum focussing distance of about 1.6 metres.
(That's about the distance i snapped the MZ-3 body).

Relatively compact and lightweight fullframe 400mm prime.
