[SOLD] Sigma 24-60mm f/2.8 EX (Worldwide)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma 24-60mm f/2.8 EX

Asking Price
NZ$400 or trade

Item Location
New Zealand

Item Description
Professional quality lens in excellent condition.

I am the only owner of this, which I have used for around two years. Only selling as I am using primes more so I can't justify keeping it.

However this lens is excellent quality, delivering great resolution, colour and contrast. This lens is a full frame lens, with an angle of view on crop-sensor cameras which equates to about a 36-90mm lens.

Condition is excellent. A very small amount of dust visible inside which does not affect images at all. Has also also been used with filter so front element is spotless. No cosmetic marks I can see at all.

Comes with original lens hood, a centre-pinch lens cap I bought for it, the rear cap, and the nice Sigma padded lens case.

Cheers.

I am just uploading some examples wide open at f/2.8, full size jpegs. I had some interest and fired off some quick shots, not checking my focus (I forgot I've got a new K-7 body since I had this lens, and haven't got the time at the moment to do a thorough AF adjustment), so these are manual focus shots, ISO 400 if I recall, and with my own mild sharpening applied from RAW (no other edits other than the small base Photoshop RAW converter ones).

All focused (manual attempts anyway) on the Resistance, Rebellion and Death, by Albert Camus book, from very close.

24mm, f/2.8

35mm, f/2.8

60mm, f/2.8

EDIT: 60mm might be minutely out of focus

These are just to show f/2.8, the weak point of some fast zooms, is sharp.

Sorry Photobucket has scaled them down, you can see the sharpness, but here's 100% centre crop from the 2nd image too, wide open at f/2.8:
