Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 HSM Macro II Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 HSM Macro II

Asking Price

Item Location
Austin, tx (United States)

Item Description
I bought this lens thinking I'd be able to use it more than I have. But its time to face facts, Im not a sports photographer, I'm not a bird shooter, I'm a portrait & wedding photographer. I shot a few football games for some friends of mine, with this lens and loved it. But pro bono shooting doesn't pay the bills. I need a Pentax 50-135 , that's a money maker for me. I'm looking to sell this or trade it for a Pentax 50-135. I have attached some sample images. If you're interested, PM me and see if we can work out a deal. The lens comes with front & rear lens caps, manufacturer box, and carrying case.

No, it's not the OS version. I shoot a K5, and it wasn't really necessary due to the K5 sensor shift image stabilization. The OS version is much harder to find. There aren't any on this forum for sale, and the cheapest I've seen them on "another auction site" that we're all familiar with, and every other site out there is $1200. I'm selling my lens for half that. It truly is a great lens. I just feel a 50-135 would be a better fit for my needs.

Yes pepe, that's the lens I'm selling. No I'm sorry, I don't have pictures of the lens. I assure you it's in excellent, almost new condition. You can see plenty of photo samples I took with this lens @ . All of the football picture on there were taken with this lens. Like I said, it's an amazing lens, it's just too long for my needs right now.
