Sigma 50-200 OS HSM 4-5.6 ($100)

DA Limited 40mm 2.8 - In excellent condition, is sharp and vibrant in its colors. I bought this because I loved the rendering of the colors that limiteds have and do, but I discovered that the Tamron 17-50 2.8 does about the same with colors (it just doesn't have the bokeh that this does). It is in excellent condition. It comes with the hood and the pouch, but no screw on lens cap (I lost it). A film canister lid fits perfectly
$235 shipped in the US -
SOLD

Tamron 90mm 2.8 SP AF Macro - This is the first edition AF version. I bought new less than a year ago as old stock. It is in like new condition. Let me just say, if you have never tried this lens, the price will be right to get it. It is beautiful bokeh (9 blades, rounded), and wonderful for portrait photography. The only reason I am letting this go is because I am buying the Tamron 70-200 2.8 lens. While this does lack the "DI" coating that the newer ones have, optically it is the exact same and renders beautiful colors and scenes. I will post pictures to demonstrate. Comes with box, original caps, hood, and pouch.
$265 - $250 Shipped in the US -
SOLD

Sigma 50-200mm OS HSM 4-5.6 - This is a lens I bought new for Christmas 2011. I was intrigued by the value this had considering it was HSM and it cost $160 new! It does really nice work on the short end (up to 130mm). I have taken some nice pictures that came out better than the 17-70 in the 50-70 range. Very light zoom lens! I am getting rid of it for the same reason as the other two - saving up for the Tamron 70-200. This comes with the box, original caps, and hood.
$110 - $100 Shipped in the US

I will ship internationally if person has good feedback. PM me for international rates.

PM replied - it is a Fuji lid. Central Nebraska doesn't have much Kodak film going around! I will even include the Fuji Lid - I know, what a deal.

DA 40 Sold! Tamron 90 2.8 Macro and Sigma 50-200 available. Both are terrific prices as the Tammy is priced almost half of a new one and has less than 200 shots. Sigma is a great outdoor lens inside 130 and has less than 100 shots. If you want to try Sigma's super fast and quiet HSM you can't lose with this one!

Man, whomever got it got a great deal. Had I just not bought the Di version on eBay a couple weeks ago. I'd have snapped this up. I had one back in my Canon days. Lovely, lovely lens. GLWS on the Sigma!

I think the Tamron 90 is pretty top notch for a lens - especially at that price! I checked out the DI version and this one and truthfully I didn't see any difference. I'm sure there are certain situations that it will make a difference. I was OK parting with it because the 70-200 2.8 Tamron has the same 9 rounded blades, aperture number, and it has the best in close "close focus". The bokeh is beautiful on both of them.

I have the 70-200 too, but it and my K-5 are going to Tamron for some intimate adjustment. But you're right. Both of these Tamron lenses are top notch...given their friendly prices they're hard to beat.
