Sigma 50-500mm (Price Drop)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma 50-500mm

Asking Price
$850 USD obo lens only

Item Location
Phoenix, AZ (United States)

Item Description
For sale, a Sigma DG EX 50-500 Bigma non-HSM

Very Good Condition with only a few minor scratches on lens hood.
Also- tripod collar is apparently glued in place so lens won't rotate to shoot vertical (NO effect on actual functionality of lens including zoom and focusing), just have to rotate tripod head instead. Has never been an issue for me. (CRIS did say they could remove the glue for a fairly minimal charge, but it was not worth the expense for purposes- so i do not consider this condition a major issue)

-- I have since been informed that on older lenses the adhesive on the pads of the tripod collar may actually leak onto the lens, sticking the collar in place. It's possible this is what has occured. I bring this up becuase I don't want any inference of abuse or neglect of this lens. It is in great shape and takes very good images. This is the only way to get to 500mm with taking out a second mortgage if you have K mount cameras. --

I bought this lens about a year ago from forum member, but have decided I need other lenses and a K5IIs, so this one goes.
I'm also open to trade plus cash from you. On trade list is a FA77 Limited, FA20 and/or an FA100 2.8
Optical and mechanical absolutely fine. In fact, just returned from CRIS where it got a tune up. (New PCB plus thorough cleaning)
No dust, no oil, zoom, focus ring, quick shift focus, everything works great.
Front and Rear lens caps included. Lens Hood and Carrying Case with strap also included.

This is the EX DG version, so lens will NOT work with any tele converters because rear element is too close to mount.

From what I've read, this lens peforms better than the now NON EX HSM version.

I also have an 86mm CPL and UV, both Sigma EX DG filters (about $200 value) available (Not included)

Bump...

Open to reasonable offers

Got a quote from CRIS of $55 to remove the glue.
Would allow tripod collar to rotate, but it is not designed to come off, so decided was not worth the expense.

Otherwise lens is in excellent condition.

I always wanted to play with the Bigma. However...after you mentioned "Marriage and Glue", I will steer clear.
Bump, and good luck with your sale.
