Item Description
I've already written up my description once, then pulled it because I couldn't go through with the sale, LOL. For consideration is my Sigma 24mm Macro lens . . . an exceedingly rare Autofocus version in Kmount.

I've never seen another one of these, though the manual version appears quite popular. The autofocus is fast, accurate and a real pleasure to use. Sigma replaced this lens with a faster version, but it's absolutely huge. This one is small (see it compared to my FA 50 1.4). You can put it in your pocket, it's a great companion and alternative to FA 24mm or DA 21 limited.

Including my filters that fit. Useful ones include a circular polarizer, skylight and fluorescent The barrel has some scuffs here/there, but the glass is perfect. Again, hate to sell it but need the cash. Thanks for checking it out!

Please PM if interested. Though I'm new to selling on the forum, I've been selling online for years. Here's an auction for another lens I'm selling, you can see my feedback. Thanks for looking, All the best!

Bump for your AF SW lens Rude!

I own a very nice copy of this lens and it's outstanding!
Some folks seem to think that they can purchase this lens for the price that PF had in their reviews that were mixed in with the MF version (they have since included the AF version with no reviews)

I paid a hefty price for my copy, so don't think you will get this "rare" lens on the cheap.

Thank you Ray! I had no idea what to list as a price since I couldn't find one of these anywhere . . . only Canon versions which I saw sell for $250-$265.

I'll also mention that the price includes all paypal fees and shipping, insurance, etc. All the best!

Bump for this excellent and rare lens (the autofocus version). I was lucky to get a copy a year ago and I use it a lot. Great focal length on a cropped sensor, really sharp images, fast autofocus, compact, all-metal construction, close-focusing. Good luck with your sale-- I bet someone snaps this up soon!

This is excellent lens. My former co-worker has it. I've seen it go up on sale a number of times on eBay and elsewhere. With all due respect I cannot say that it is extremely rare. It is extremely good, so that those who buy it hold on to it, I know I would if I had one myself. I've read somewhere that this specific lens was co-designed by Sigma with Leica - it is indeed spectacular.

So, here's a bump for a great lens.

Thanks Boris! I will qualify that I say "rare" with a huge grain of salt. I mean I've just never come across another in my many travels (and I buy a lot of lenses for an amature). Good point (and lesson on supply/demand) . . .

Appreciate all the feedback on the lens from everyone. Good to know others have enjoyed it as well!

Price lowered. All the best!
