[SOLD] Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 APO DG Macro SDM (US/CAN) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 APO DG Macro SDM

Asking Price

Item Location
Kenosha, WI

Item Description
I decided to part ways with my Sigma 70-200mm, my first truely significant lens purchase. Seems like I have it racked to the 200mm end far too often to justify such a high end zoom. I'd like to try a DA* 200mm or 300mm and this lens would make that too redundant for me, considering I also have a Tokina 80-400mm. Its just time to shake up the lineup a little bit.

The lens is in great shape. The only imperfections I can find are a few pen-dot sized imperfections in the lens coating that are only visible at certain angles. They are hard enough to notice that I couldn't manage to capture them with my p&s for this posting. Definitely shouldn't diminish IQ. Other than that, there is a slight swirl mark on the tripod foot from attaching a monopod.

I'm the second owner, but it was in new condition from the first owner. The lens was sent in to Sigma for a replacement front element since they had a bad batch which were separating. The new elements seem to not have the same problem. The lens will come with the original box and all available paperwork I can scrounge up. Also comes with the OEM case, hood, original caps and tripod mount.

I'd consider trade on any Pentax fast glass in the 200-400mm range or a Sigma 100-300mm f4. I'll consider shipping outside of North America depending on location. PM me for details

Here's a little bump. I'm headed to the farm for a long weekend and hope to not look at a computer for four days although I have a feeling by tomorrow night the work laptop will have already been used.

Anyways, drop me a line if you're interested and I'll get back to you as I have the opportunity.
