Sigma 70-210mm f/2.8 APO - Price Drop

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma 70-210mm f/2.8 APO

Asking Price
$320 or best offer

Item Location
New Jersey (United States)

Item Description
This is a manual focus lens. Included in the sale is the tripod collar (pictured,) rear cap, hood and case. Front cap not included.

Glass is in excellent condition, perhaps a couple of tiny spots that can be cleaned off. The rubberized coating on the body is a bit scuffed up, and the top-most part of the lens (with APO printed on it) is a bit loose. The glass element itself does not move, just the outer ring.

The picture quality is excellent. The problem with this lens is the operator. I'm terrible at manual focus, so I cannot use this lens effectively.

I took some test shots at f/2.8 and f/8. I'm including both the full size images and center crop that should show at 100%. As I've mentioned, I cannot manually focus, so don't expect these to be perfectly focused. These images are straight from camera with no post-processing other than cropping.

Full image at f2.8


Full image at f8


100% center crop at f2.8


100% center crop at f8


I see a lot of softness and some CA at f2.8.
