Item Description
For sale is my well used Pentax mount Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4.5 lens. I got it 2nd hand several years ago and I am its second owner. The lens served me perfectly as a everyday walkaround lens, until I replaced it with the Sigma 17-50mm F2.8. The lens is in fair but used condition, and cosmetically, it shows signs of a well used lens. Optically, there are a number of dust particles behind the front element, but that is to be expected for a lens that isnít sealed, and I havenít noticed the dust affecting image quality, which is great. Mechanically, the lens works fine, however, the lens hood is a little bit loose; a bit of electrical tape at the locking points solves this issue though. Also there is a mark on the rear lens cap, which was already there when I received this lens from its previous owner.

Included:
- Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4.5 Lens
- Sigma front lens cap
- Sigma rear lens cap
- Sigma lens hood
- original box

17-70 is a handy focal length for a one-lens, i.e., walk-around, solution.

Still available, and price lowered again.
Good lens, bit of dust that doesn't affect performance

Hi, it'll probably sell more quickly if you change the price in the listing so that in the previews of each for sale thread, it says $175 rather than $250. Best of luck.

Would also help having some sample shots with the lens. The phrase "well used" might lead people to think they'll see spider webs on every shot they will take

Well, I actually did link to a thread where you can see shots taken with the lens, but I can see that it wasn't entirely clear that a few of the photos in that thread were taken by me and shot with this exact lens. Fair call.

Anyway, ask and you shall receive, hot off the sensor. Click for larger sizes, exif should be intact:
