Sigma 100-300/4

I'm looking for a Sigma 100-300mm f/4.

I don't mind cosmetic issues, but the glass should be clean.

I've seen copies in excellent condition and with the box like that one go for $1200 - $1300 on eBay, so that's actually a good price right now at $1045, assuming it doesn't get bid up too much. I didn't get the box with mine, and still paid around $1000.

In fact, my 100-300mm f4 is the only lens I don't have the box for, so if you get that lens and you aren't the type to keep boxes around, I would happily pay the shipping for you to send the box to me.

He had it up a few weeks ago for BIN $1100. I am interested as well, however import duties into Canada are a killer, and I don't plan to be in that part of NA anytime soon....

I am hoping that Edgar will tell me how much he hates his Sigma 100-300 f/4 so I can quit searching and move on.....

Bummer about the import duties. How much do you estimate they'd be for something like that?

Depends on the carrier, but probably someplace in the range of 8-12% by the time you include Federal tax and possible brokerage fees, etc..

I see the 100-300mm on eBay sold for $1045. Did somebody here win it?

I don't think anyone who owns this lens will ever hate it. I swapped out a Bigma for the 100-300 and haven't regretted it for a minute. Even with the 1.4x attached, I think the IQ is better.

I wish someone would do a comparison with the DA* 300 just for vetting purposes. I'd bet the IQ is pretty darn close and the zoom gives it more flexibility
