[SOLD] Sigma 170-500mm APO, Like New (Worldwide) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma 170-500 APO, Like New

Asking Price
US $485

Item Location
Tampa, FL USA

Item Description
Selling a Sigma APO 170-500 5-6.3 lens in like new condition.

Lens is heavy, but balances well on my K20 when the tripod collar is used. Focus is crisp and accurate. Surprisingly sharp from 170 out past 300mm. Starts to soften from 400-500mm but is as expected for this model.

Only real drawback is the pronounced zoom creep.

For US buyers, contact me within 7 days of receipt if not satisfied for refund of purchase price plus shipping (you pay return shipping). Int'l buyers, all sales final.

@ 170mm

@ ~300mm
