Sigma 170-500mm f/5-6.3 APO Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma 170-500mm f/5-6.3 APO

Asking Price

Item Location
Chicago (United States)

Item Description
Lens has front and rear caps, but does not have the original bayonet hood. However I bought a metal screw-in hood that works fine, just that it doesn't reverse for storage. The glass is in perfect condition, and the exterior is in excellent condition. It's not the latest in Sigma's line of telephoto zooms, but it's a great way to get some reach on the cheap.

I'm selling this because I simply don't use such long focal lengths often enough, apart from a couple of zoo trips some time ago. I'm sure someone can do some proper wildlife or birding with this lens!

PM me if you're interested!

Some shots of the lens

Some shots with the lens

A great lens for watching baseball from way up in the stands, and taking photos while you're at it

Does sports kinda well, but not as good as my 70-200 f/2.8 HSM

Some serious reach

A great zoo lens - super long reach but not too heavy

Bokeh isn't bad at all

My favorite shot with this lens
