Sigma 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 Macro Lens Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 Macro Lens

Asking Price

Item Location
Talent, Oregon (United States)

Item Description
I've liked this lens. It's lightweight - it's sharp - it focuses quickly - and its normal-to-slight-telephoto length is one that nicely complements the more limited standard kit lens that came with my Pentax originally. I think it's strengths are in portraits and candid people shots. It's light enough to be a good walk-around lens and has enough range to move in and out and frame and reframe.

Main reason I am selling it is to finance the purchase of a WR/weather resistant lens, to go with my K200D, to survive the never-ending Northwest rains here in Oregon.

This is a relatively inexpensive 'bargain' lens - but it's a good one. Lens comes with front and rear lens caps but no hood, bag or case. Oh, yeah, and....the Macro capability? Several users have made disparaging comments about this lens not having a 'true' Macro. But in my non-orthodox experience, it gives beautiful and sharp close close-ups of all kinds of tiny in real world terms, it (the Macro possibilities) always worked for me.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?
