[SOLD] Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 DC Macro

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4.5 DC Macro

Asking Price
$225 OBO

Item Location
Boston, MA (United States)

Item Description
Used Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 DC Macro:

This lens is in great condition and is a fantastic everyday walk-around. The lens has a minor defect where the aperture will only stop down to f/3.5. I sent it back to Sigma and then said the lens was fine, but when it is mounted on my K100D, it does not go below f/3.5. The lens works fine otherwise and I haven't noticed or minded the lack of f/2.8.

The macro feature (1:2) just makes this lens all the better. This lens has a locking feature to prevent the barrel from extending while walking.

Given the condition issue, I'd entertain a reasonable offer.

have you tried it with another camera? could it be just a problem with your k100d?

i'd be interested if it worked with my k-x

It does this on another Pentax of mine. If you jiggle the lens a bit, you can get it to show f/2.8. It must be something with the contact. Others have reported a similar problem. I would be willing to consider a reasonable offer if you're interested.

Your photozone link goes to the older f/2.8-4.5 review - but they are optically fairly similar, I suspect.

BTW can one focus manually with HSM lenses once they acquire focus, similar to quick-shift?

Ah - thanks.
My browser is acting up, I was getting a mess of dialogs in the way so couldn't edit my response after I saw it. Turned off IE and turned on Chrome, which allowed me to turn off the weird dialogs. p.s. nope, Chrome is getting the dialog boxes too .. weird.
