Sigma 100-300mm F4 APO DG + 1.4TC Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma 100-300mm F4 APO DG + 1.4TC ***SOLD!****

Asking Price
1300 USD

Item Location
Manitoba (Canada)

Item Description
Purchased new in April 2010 (I think this was the very last one sold by Adorama. They were No Stock after my purchase, and no other major US retailer had one). This is a good copy of an excellent lens, and it's the lens I've used most. A versatile 100-300mm range for nature photography, it has a constant F4 aperture, and constant lens length as you focus and zoom. This feature has kept internal dust to a minimum - there's a little bit (there always will be), but nothing that will affect image quality.
The lens is in excellent condition, with no scuffs, scrapes, or scratches on the glass or the body. All original packaging, padded case and documents are included. Even the box is in great condition.

I also have available the Sigma 1.4 EX APO teleconverter. It's not the DG version, but I suspect that makes no practical difference. I never noticed any issues with the setup. I'm not the original owner of the TC, but it's in excellent condition also, and comes with the original padded case (but no box or papers).

The TC has a Pentax rear cap and original Sigma front cap. The 100-300 includes the original front and rear caps, but I will also include a Pentax cap, because Sigma's rear caps are really annoying.
Some sample pics are included, see also Happy with a clam - Pentax User Photo Gallery . Keep in mind the effects of downsizing.

Shipping to USA: $50 Express or $30 Expedited. Cost is $10 less in Canada ($40/$20). Shipping specs: LxWxH = 40 X 25 X 25 cm. Weight 2.7kg. Shipping from postal code R0M 0C0
Shipping overseas would cost approx. $150.

This is one of the best Sigma EX lenses. I would buy it if I did not have one already. Hard to find.

You're right.

Fantastic glass

Good luck, amazing array of glass to make a top lens. I'm considering selling mine as well, but it's too good to let go without top dollar in return.

I was tempted to buy it myself, and I already have one!
