Sigma 500mm F4.5 APO Manual Focus-K mount

Asking Price
USD $1000

Item Location
Arizona, USA

Item Description
Superb sharp, fast telefoto, equivalent to a 750mm F4.5 for 35mm format. A fine wildlife or surfer lens, as long as you have young eyes. Very bright for a 500mm, so focusing is certainly easier than with an F5.6 lens!

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?
No

Are you selling or trading this item?
Selling

Item Condition (Key)
Used
Excellent

Shipping Destinations
Worldwide

Shipping Charge
varies by location

Return Policy & Additional Details
I bought this from a doctor who was the original owner, and have used it for wildlife trips once or twice annually for the past ten years.

No returns accepted, as I know this is a sharp lens and it will cost far lens than the new price which was in the range of $2000 when new.

Please send me a private message if interested in the item!

Damned that's an impressive piece of glass!
If I had the cash, I'd buy it just to scare away the Canon folk at the wild life reserves(lol).
Very impressive though...

Hi Kerrick,

Thanks for the response! Unfortunately, I have to place a strict upper weight limit to any lens I can use, and 7 lbs, 11 oz is over my limit, but that's actually lighter than I expected for a lens of this spec -- this looks to be a fine piece of glass -- and very rare too -- the first I've ever seen in any mount, especially KA mount, and long fast glass always gets my attention. . .

I wonder if the Pentax 1.7 AFA would work acceptably with this lens?

I don't see why not--that TC works pretty well with my SMC 1000mm.

This is K- r/t KA-mount--correct, kjames5?
