[SOLD] Sigma 70mm EX DG macro for Pentax (Worldwide)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma 70mm EX DG macro for Pentax

Asking Price
$400 price cut $375!!!

Item Location
Arlington, VA USA

Item Description
I am selling my excellent copy of the Sigma 70mm EX DG macro with original box, bag, and hood. The glass is perfect and does not have any scratches, fungus, or haze. It's razor sharp, capable of 1:1 macro shots, and made for the digital format (although can be put on a FF from what I've read<-please double check this). I must mention that there are just a couple of superficial blemish marks on the barrel of the lens. You can see what I mean from one from the pictures below. Of course, this does not affect the IQ of this lens and probably can be cleaned. This lens is well reviewed at pentaxforums and at many other site as well. See link below.

Yes! Just got the FA43mm today and super happy about it. Thanks for the bump.

I've cut the price down and added a link in the description to a compilation of external reviews of this lens. Many reviewers say this lens is sharper than the previously well-reviewed Tamron 90mm SP Di macro lens.

Thanks for the info Ubuntu. I was recently offered the same deal plus cash from another PF member, but since I bought the FA43mm f1.9, I thought it was too close in FL to the FA50mm f/1.4.
