Sigma 170-500mm F5-6.3 APO Lens - Price Drop! Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma 170-500mm F5-6.3 APO Lens

Asking Price
$490 $470!!!

Item Location
NJ (United States)

Item Description
Another lens falls victim to my re-organization of photo gear!

Lens is in excellent condition, the only significant scratches being on the tripod mount. Glass is clean, a few small specs were the coating has worn away, and a little dust trapped inside. Neither effects image quality.

As with virtually all the Sigma 170-500 lenses, there is lens droop. I'm including the solution - a fat, stylish blue elastic band which, when placed properly over the zoom ring, eliminates the droop!

The original lens hood, cheap plastic thing that it is, sadly has gone to lens heaven. I'm including a screw-type metal hood in its stead. It's not as deep as the original, but I've not seen any problems with this.

This deal also includes the original caps, Lowepro soft case, original padded hard case and docs. It's all in excellent condition.

A trade I would be interested in is for a Panasonic Lumix LX-5 camera in new or excellent condition + cash.

I don't have any previous sales on Pentax Forums. Since I don't have any feedback here, of course you want references! Here is my Heatware (134-0-0): FlippedGazelle |
