[SOLD] Zooms: FA 20-35/4, Sigma 15-30/3.5-4.5, Sigma 70-200/2.8 + 1.4x + 2x TCs (Wor

Zooms! The trimming and rejiggering continues. Unloading those which simply don't see enough use, reigning in / reversing a slow but long case (though mild relative to many) of LBA, and considering the DA* 16-50 and either DA* 50-135 or DA* 60-250.

See bottom section for information on payment, shipping & insurance, returns, etc.

Edit to add: All prices are firm (as now indicated for each individual item). If I decide to lower my prices or accept best offers, I'll update this post.

Items for Sale


USD$350 firm (incl shipping, see below) | SMC Pentax-FA 20-35mm f/4 AL

Original owner: No

Functional Condition: Excellent
Cosmetic Condition: Good

Purchased on eBay April 2009. I'd rate the cosmetic condition excellent if it wasn't for some minor dings on the hood. I absolutely love this lightweight, compact lens and really enjoy the color and rendering. This lens has served well as my wide-ish to normal walkaround (while my FA 28-105 f3.2-4.5 serves as my normal to tele walkaround). Not surprisingly, tihs lens receives excellent PF user reviews. If I started shooting film, too, or if Pentax came out with a FF DSLR, I would jump all over this lens once again.

Front & rear elements are clean, interior shows no sign of haze or fungus or dust. Focus ring is smooth and lightly damped (as is the case with all the FA lenses I've had, i.e. not the same degree of damping as MF lenses). Aperture blades are clean, dry, smooth, and snappy.

Photos: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7

Includes:
  • Lens
  • Original hood
  • Pentax front & rear caps


USD$175 firm (incl shipping, see below) | Sigma APO 2x EX (non-DG) TC

Original owner: No

Functional Condition: Excellent
Cosmetic Condition: Excellent

Purchased from a fellow PFer in September 2009. Designed specifically for the Sigma 70-200 f/2.8. If you follow the lens forum, this lens + TC combination gets recommended all the time -- for good reason. While the DG coating is supposed to offer protection against flare and ghosting, I've never noticed any flare or ghosting in my images using the non-DG version.

For reference, the Sigma lens compatibility list.

Photos: 1, 2, 3, 4

Includes:
  • Teleconverter
  • Asahi Pentax front & generic KR rear caps


SOLD USD$300 USD$350 USD$390 (incl shipping, see below) | Sigma AF 15-30mm f/3.5-4.5 EX DG Aspherical

Original owner: Yes

Functional Condition: Excellent
Cosmetic Condition: Excellent

Purchased new ~Aug 2008. Full frame, for those holding out for digital FF or also shooting film. Outstanding reviews here on PF. I've always wondered why more people don't use this lens. Price lowered for the last time before going to eBay.

Front & rear elements are clean, interior shows no sign of haze or fungus or dust. Focus ring is smooth and well damped, more similar to older MF lenses than current AF ones. Aperture blades are clean, dry, smooth, and snappy.


Photos: 1, 2 ,3, 4, 5

Includes:
  • Lens w/ built-in hood
  • Removable filter ring
  • Original front original & rear caps
  • Padded case + strap
  • Original box and paperwork

SOLD USD$650* firm USD$675 (incl shipping, see below) | Sigma APO 70-200mm f/2.8 EX (non-DG, non-HSM, non-Macro)

* Price adjusted after further review of reputable vendor pricing for its current competition (newer versions of Tamron & Sigma 70-200/2.8)

Original owner: No

Functional Condition: Excellent
Cosmetic Condition: Good

Purchased from a fellow PFer in April 2008. This is a version 1 of this lens -- no DG, no HSM, etc. The version 1's are considered by many the best generation of these lenses. Not surprisingly, extremely positive reviews here on PF. While the DG coating is supposed to offer protection against flare and ghosting, I've never noticed any flare or ghosting in my images using the non-DG version.

Front & rear elements are clean, interior shows no sign of haze or fungus or dust. Focus ring is smooth and lightly damped, as one might expect in an AF lens. Aperture blades are clean, dry, smooth, and snappy.

Photos: 1, 2, 3, 4

Includes:
  • Lens
  • Tripod collar and mount
  • Original hood
  • Sigma front & rear caps; I swear I have the Sigma front cap somewhere, but can't for the life of me find it. I'll keep looking for it, but don't count on it. Found!
  • Tamron center-pinch front cap (which I like far better than the original)


SOLD USD$135 firm (incl shipping, see below) | Sigma APO 1.4x EX (non-DG) TC

Original owner: No

Functional Condition: Excellent
Cosmetic Condition: Excellent

Purchased on eBay in October 2009. Designed specifically for the Sigma 70-200 f/2.8. If you follow the lens forum, this lens + TC combination gets recommended all the time -- for good reason. While the DG coating is supposed to offer protection against flare and ghosting, I've never noticed any flare or ghosting in my images using the non-DG version.

For reference, the Sigma lens compatibility list.

Photos: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

Includes:
  • Teleconverter
  • Original Sigma front & rear caps
  • Original outer box (but perhaps not all the box innards?) and paperwork

Shipping

USA -- prices include FedEx Ground / Home Delivery to Paypal-confirmed addresses, including insurance for full sale value, delivery confirmation, and required delivery signature.

Canada -- Same as USA, but pay the price difference between the nearest USA metro area and buyer's location.

International -- Pay actual shipping costs in addition to listed price. Three options:
  • FedEx / DHL or UPS, including insurance for full sale value (no, I won't reduce the value to save on customs duties), delivery confirmation, and required delivery signature. Seller assumes liability until delivery.
  • USPS Express or Priority Mail International, with Return Receipt (only a limited # of countries provide this service via USPS; most do not), insured for full sale value (no, I won't reduce the value to save on customs duties). Seller assumes liability until delivery.
  • USPS Express or Priority Mail International, without Return Receipt, insured for full sale value (no, I won't reduce the value to save on customs duties). Buyer assumes ALL liability upon seller's proof of shipment. To be clear: if something goes wrong after seller ships item -- delivery delay or failure, lost or damaged package or contents, etc. -- buyer is fully liable and seller bears no liability or responsibility. I will consider this option on a discretionary, case-by-case basis only.

Payment Options

Paypal. Buyer and seller split Paypal fees (if applicable) 50/50 since it's a benefit and convenience to both parties.

Purchase Returns

Buyers have 48 hrs after confirmed receipt to test / review and ensure the item meets their satisfaction and seller's description. If buyer is not satisfied, buyer must ship lens to seller via the same carrier, service level, and service options (or alternative carrier, service level, and service options as mutually agreed). Buyer is responsible for all return shipping costs, customs duties, fees, and assumes all liability until seller confirms receipt and condition of returned goods. Upon receipt of returned goods and confirmation of contents and condition, I'll refund the full purchase price, less original shipping costs and any applicable Paypal fees.

Trade Returns / Reversals

Both parties have 48 hrs after receipt to test / review and ensure the items meet their satisfaction and trader's descriptions. If one party is not satisfied, we'll attempt to reach a resolution that doesn't require reversing the trade. But if we cannot come to agreement, both parties pay return shipping via the same carrier, service level, and options, or alternative carrier, service level, and options as mutually agreed. If money is involved, the full price will be refunded, less any applicable Paypal costs. Upon receipt and confirmation of contents and condition, and Paypal refund, both parties will consider the transaction fully reversed and closed.

Non-Delivery Returns

In the case of items returned due to non-delivery (for any reason other than seller error), buyer or trader is responsible for any and all fees associated with return and may opt <1> to cancel the trade and receive a refund (if applicable) less actual shipping and Paypal costs, or <2> for re-shipment (buyer or trader is responsible for all re-shipment costs and any additional Paypal fees).

Delays

Seller is not responsible for carrier or customs delivery delays.

Customs Duties, Fees, and Taxes

Buyer is solely responsible for complete payment of any and all customs duties, fees, and taxes during original shipment, returns, returns due to non-delivery, and/or re-shipment.

Full Contact Information

Buyer must be willing to share (privately, of course) full contact information -- legal name, home address, email, home/mobile phone #s -- to ensure multiple channels of communication in case anything goes screwy with PF.com.

Miscellaneous

This is not necessarily a first-come, first-served listing.

Contact

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