Item for Sale
Sigma 135-400 4.5-5.6 APO DG - Rated poor for fungus - very usable, samples

Asking Price
175.00 USD

Item Location
Wilkes County NC (United States)

Item Description
Sigma 135-400 4.5-5.6 APO DG

Lens comes with front and rear caps only. (..it has 77mm filter threads so a screw-on hood will work or sigma hoods for this lens can be found at the big auction site..)

Body is in good shape..see photos.

Zoom is fast...actually zoom-creeps very easily, I used a wide rubber band to keep it in place...worked for me (..and nobody ever questioned me about it..).

Focus seems stiff when used manually (..rarely ever used it manually..) but never had an issue when using autofocus on K1 K5iis or the K5.

Like the focus, aperture ring feels rather stiff when used manually...but as above I rarely used it manually, has been set to 'A' for years and no issues there.

Front and rear glass is clean and free of any obvious scratches or cleaning marks.

The reason for the 'Poor' rating is the start of some fungus on one of the inner elements...see photos. Please note that not all the spots you see is fungus, much of that is dust illuminated by the harsh light...most older lenses have internal dust.

If you are on a budget, this is still a good lens with life left to it. Not modern but has plenty of reach...more-so if you mount it onto a crop sensor camera (..if my math is right, giving you something that is approx 190-600mm..)

The sample photos were all taken within the last couple days. All are jpgs sooc, only size reduced to save space.
Tried getting photos of the fungus, not the best. If you are really interested in the lens, message me and I'll try to get you a couple better shots.

Note: the quick release plate seen in several of the images is not included.
