Late to the party,sorry, what is the back story on the lens?

Also, why is there a "j/k" (just kidding?) attached to the sale title, is this a real sale?

I think the "j/k" is referring to the price being 10k. Later in the ad he mentions 6.5k if he can't find the trade he wants.

ROAR!!! the crowd goes wild - DID YOU FIND OUT THE STORY? slighted G/F or deceased photographers family parting out the kit... The story is as juicey as the find.
Yes i found out the story, its from a deceased relatives estate, they were quite happy to get a lot more then they were initially asking for.

And to think I thought it might be a scam. I'm now kicking myself in various places.
I thought so too... but if it wasn't i had to get it... and i did, the only reason i'm parting with it is that its too heavy for my style, but it sure gets a lot of looks when i walk through local parks.

Congratulations. Pics would be appreciated and Plus 1 to you for not ripping them off!
Thanks, I couldn't steal it for their original asking price, that'd be very wrong and disrespectful and for those who believe in karma i'd probably drop it soon after buying it if i did steal it for that price.

As was posted, the 10K price tag was just to get attention, the first responder has offered my asking price of 6.5K however it will take a few weeks to complete the transaction. The back story has mostly been filled in through the post.

Damn!!,

I replied to the original Kijiji add but you beat me to it. I wasn't sure if it was real when I saw the photos at first. This was going to fund my trip to Europe.

Very nice! Congrats on owning a legendary lens, even if it's just for a short time.

Asking Price
$10000
Please clarify the price. Is there supposed to be a decimal point in there somewhere?

The 10000 was an attention grabber, the first in line buyer is paying what i'm asking in the main body of the listing

That was a quote from the main body. It says $10000. Is that supposed to be $10.000 ?

I guess if you are in Europe or Latin America, it would be $10.000, in the US is $10,000.

If i can't find a trade or someone really wants the lens but doesn't have the 500/4.5, The lowest i could go for selling the 600/4 is $6500+shipping to allow me to cover the cost of the 500/4.5 (in Canada) however a smart person may consider picking up the 500/4.5 cheaper in the US and trading the only negative for me in that regard is only a 1 year international warranty ... hmmm... unless i send it back to the states for service but then that might cost more for shipping then the standard service charge on the lens locally.

Thanks for the photos

Wow that thing looks to be a beast! Thank you for sharing the photos, especially with the other lenses too for comparison. You have quite the arsenal there.

Seems reasonable (and quite fair) to me. Good luck with the pending sale and your new Sigma 500/4.5 once you get it

It comes with an assistant, right?

And a flatbed truck?
