Item Location
Connecticut USA

Item Description
Sigma 24-60mm f/2.8 EX DG - $230.00 plus shipping [SOLD - Pending Payment]

This zoom has gotten a lot of good reviews here. Sigma 24-60mm F2.8 EX DG Lens Reviews - Pentax Third-Party Lens Review Database

I like it myself, but am currently cutting down the number of zooms I have in favor of primes. I got this lens initially for the wide end because it is full-frame compatible and I shot it mostly on film. I am not using it much since bagging a Sigma 24mm f/2.8, so will pass it along.

Cosmetically it is excellent, without anything whatsoever to comment upon other than it shows very minor signs of handling. Mechanically, the lens is excellent and without issue. No fuzz, funk or fogginess. Aperture blades stop down smartly and there are no issues with the glass either front or rear. This lens does NOT have an aperture ring, so on film bodies be aware that this is not a good match to your ZX-5n. I used it on a ZX-7. It would work as well on a ZX-L, Ist-D, and any other body that does not require a dedicated aperture ring.

In October of 2010 (this month) I had this lens calibrated and cleaned by Precision Camera. They are an official Sigma warranty repair depot, and they did a nice job on the lens. I often do this for lenses that are pre-owned and which I feel I am going to keep for a while.

In this case, I simply changed my mind due to the change in direction to primes. The receipt for this work is posted below. In light of this work, I think the price is fair as stated.

Lens comes with caps, hood, Sigma case, box, and paperwork. Photos of Lens:

Repair order. I will send this with the paperwork on the lens.

Photos taken WITH the lens:

Taken at f/2.8 ISO 800 1/60th at 40mm with a K20D - no sharpening

Taken at f/3.2 ISO 800 1/60th @ 60mm with a K20D - no sharpening

Taken at f/2.8 ISO 800 @ 24mm with a K10D

Taken at f/9 ISO 200 1/80th @ 24mm with a K20D

Taken at f/11 ISO 200 1/40th @ 24mm with a K20D

Taken at f/9 ISO 200 1/200th @ 24mm with a K20D - Note flare resistance. The sun is JUST above this frame near the center. this only three some very small bits of flare, which could be easily worked out.

With a K10D - there is some PP on this including work on depth of field.
