Sigma 18-50 f/2.8-4.5 OS HSM Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma 18-50 f/2.8-4.5 OS HSM

Asking Price

Item Location
Oregon (United States)

Item Description
This is the new HSM/OS model with internal zoom/focus. It gives the 18-55 kit lens a very good competitor with a different feature set. The Sigma is a very nice lens with excellent IQ and near-silent focus. In the end though, I prefer the compactness, WR and quick-shift of the DA 18-55.. so off goes the Sigma. Box, caps & hood included. No paypal fee, but feel free to add a buck or two as you wish.

Lens is indeed available - and thanks for the nudge!

Here are a few more images. This first tells me it isn't quite "like new" but the scuff near the OS switch is entirely superficial to the coating. It can't be felt only seen.

Here's a top-down shot - note the former owner left the UV filter with the lens.

Box and original caps are included along with the UV filter. And recall that the lens looks no different when zoomed 'out' or focused close, as its size does not change! That's a really cool feature, but sadly Sigma does not label this lens as weather sealed so I really feel I must keep the 18-55WR.
