[SOLD] Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 Macro OS HSM (US) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma 17-70 f/2.8-4 Macro OS HSM

Asking Price

Item Location
Goleta, CA

Item Description
SIGMA 17-70mm f/2.8-4 Macro zoom lens with Hyper-Sonic Motor and built-in optical stabilizer. The stabilizer is good for shutter speeds up to 4 stops lower than normal, and the HSM is extremely quiet and fast. The lens is still under manufacturer warranty. I bought this less than a year ago from B&H, and I love using it, but I am going on a 5 month trip and I would like to replace it with a low weight prime. It was very lightly used, with no signs of wear. It comes with the original box and warranty, the front and rear caps, the front hood, and a 72mm Tiffen UV filter.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

I have this lens as my main travel lens. Very good image quality. For indoor, use with flash at f5.6 it delivers superb images.

Price drop. I agree with hoanpham, it is a great all around lens; good in low light, covers the most used focal lengths, and it is super sharp all around. I'm going to miss it . . .

good lens

I've seen in several reviews that the in-lens stabilization is a stop or so better than the SR exisiting in the Pentax K-bodies...

I have the non-OS version of this lens and while its not a fixed f2.8, its performance has met my expectations and then some, excellent value lens...

I am ordering my camera this week-end; sure would like this lens. Maybe now that I post this, the site will let me PM. If not, I'm hoping alesauskas will PM me.
