[SOLD] Sigma High-Speed Wide 28mm f/1.8 II Asph. (Worldwide) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma High-Speed Wide 28mm f/1.8 II Asph.

Asking Price
USD $225 Net, or trade for Pentax F28/2.8

Item Location
Toronto, Canada

Item Description
Sigma High-Speed Wide 28mm f/1.8 II Aspherical Manual Focus

Includes generic caps. No hood, package or documentation.

This lens is in good shape and the glass is very clean. It was professionally cleaned in early 2010. There are some scratch marks in the soft-touch body and screen-printed lettering.

The only reason I am selling is because I am looking for something auto-focus.

On my K-m and K-x bodies, the maximum aperture shows as f/1.7.
It has 7 aperture blades and has wonderfully soft bokeh.

With those bodies, it plays really nice with built-in flash. Compared to newer Sigma 28mm f/1.8 lenses, it's relatively compact and does not block the built-in flash and has a 58mm filter thread. Approximate physical dimensions are 67mm x L65mm x 310g.

Also, unlike newer Sigma lenses, it focuses in the same direction as Pentax lenses, a nice touch. Minimum focus distance is 30cm.

It's a full-frame lens and does work quite well on film bodies!
