Item Description
Selling my Sigma 170-500mm F/5-6.3 APO DG in Mint Condition.

It was an impulse buy. The previous owner bought it few tears earlier and never use it. He tested it before selling it and I tested while buying it. I used it 2 other time indoors and have not use it since.

I have the Sigma 70-200mm 2.8 and I do not want to carry two big lenses everywhere I go, so the 70-200mm is the one I grab and the other is been sitting in the closet.

The lens is in mint condition with no scratches in the glass or oil in the blades. The mount looks like it has never mounted in a camera.

The lens comes in its original box, lens pouch, front and rear lens and instruction manual as well as the tripod mount collar

I am including a 86mm UV filter Brand New (still in his sealed box).

Reason for selling it, I do not use it and this lenses are made to be used.

Considering a trade for the FA 77mm lens +/- cash accordingly.

PM for a shipping quote. Since it is a big lens, the farther you live, the more expensive it is to send it. If you live near NJ/PA (Philadelphia) area, we can arrange a pick up.

This is a nice lens that anyone trying to take wildlife must have before embarking in a larger more expensive lens. Check the reviews here to see the quality of photos taken handheld. Also, it is an AF, which is a must for flying bird shooting.

Pepe Guitarra:

Actually, I do better when tracking moving birds with a manual focus lens, and if I owned this particular lens I'd focus manually for that purpose. But I agree with you that it's a nice lens. If I had the money, I'd snap it up! And I'm sure someone will.

Cheers,
Bob :-)

I'd buy it if I had the money, even if that meant to have two.

Extending the same offer I gave to the forum member that were pursuing the sale.

I am willing to sell the lens for $580 Paypaled as Gift + shipping ( the box fits in a large Flat Rate Priority box $15 + $1 Delivery confirmation).

Or $580 + 3% paypal fees + shipping.

I am open to trades for a 21mm LTD or a 70mm LTD + cash from the buyer or a FA77mm + cash from me.
