Item Description
This is the famous Sigma APO 170-500mm F5-6.3 DG (AF Lens). It is a must-have-first lens for those who want to go into wildlife photography. Buy this lens before buying the ultra heavy and more expensive FA300mm-f2.8, etc. It is heavy and long and a sturdy tripod is recommended. This lens is in excellent condition and shows very little wear outside, lenses are free of oil, fungus and dust. There are few minor what appear to be scratches on the side of the front element visible with the light, which have been there since I purchased the lens and do not affect the quality of the image. However, you can see my review of this lens and the photographs I posted, they are all handheld. This is what will be in the box:
1) Sigma APO 170-500mm F5-6.3 DG (AF Lens)
2) Camo dress for the lens, it helps to blend in and all pros use it. ($100 in Adorama)
3) Multi-Coated UV filter ($70 value)
4) Lowepro Case ($65), a MUST to protect this lens and carrying it around.

I am selling most of my long lenses to help pay a big expensive lens I purchase. I am selling way below what I invested. My loss is your gain, enjoy it.
I will only ship to the Continental US, this lens is heavy and needs a good packaging, which includes a large box to properly protect it.
