Sigma 150-500mm F5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM Marketplace Listing

Setauket, NY (United States)

Item Description
I am selling my Sigma 150-500mm F5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM for Pentax. I purchased the lens new from Adorama in January of this year. It has been very lightly used and is "as new". Actually it is better than "as new" in that I live close to the SigmaphotoUSA headquarters and know people who work there. I had them check out the lens shortly after I purchased it. They upgraded the firmware and told me that mine was the only lens sold in North America that had received the update. The lens performs beautifully. You'll find pictures of the lens, a copy of the Sigma tune-up receipt, and a few sample shots at: Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket. Among the sample photos, only the gull's head is as shot. The other photos are at least 50% crops and show what the lens can do when you can't get close enough to fill the frame.

The lens comes with everything that came in the box, including the box, the blank warranty card, and the bill of sale. In addition, I'm including a Tiffen Professional 86c UV filter that sells for $60 at Amazon.

Why am I selling? I took leave of my senses and plunked down megabucks for a new Sigma 500mm F/4.5 APO EX DG, so the Sigma 150-500 is now redundant.

I've not sold on this forum before but you can find me at eBay as gwhitehurst10 where I previously sold my K20 and some older lenses.

PM me if you have questions. I'm going to list this on eBay on Monday if he hasn't sold here, so please don't delay if you're interested in the lens. You won't find a better copy.

Hi, would you consider shipping to South Africa? I would have sent you a pm, but I'm new to the forums, and can't pm yet.

I don't know what's going on here. I posted this item for sale before Christmas, got no responses here, and later sold it on eBay. Now my listing is posted by another user and leads to a virus-infected link. Stay away from this.

You should mark the item sold using the sellers tools at the top if you can, otherwise have a mod do it for you.
