Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 - $750 or trade for Sigma 85mm 1.4 or Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8

Asking Price
750 USD

Item Location
Indianapolis (United States)

Item Description
I have an extra Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 HSM II EX lens for sale. This is one of the lenses that was recently sold by the Sigma Outlet store and was only made available in the US. Although the lenses were sold as "refurbished", a sales rep I spoke with confirmed that the lenses were actually new old stock that had never been sold.

I am asking $750 for the lens, but I would be willing to trade straight across for a Sigma 85mm 1.4 in excellent condition w/box, or a Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 + $250.


The lens has the updated firmware so it focuses in live view, and it comes complete in the box. I have only removed it from the box for testing purposes. I have confirmed that it has the same great image quality and performance as my own 50-150mm, which is one of my favorite lenses ever.


This is an outstanding lens, and it is considered by many to be a superior alternative to the Pentax 50-135mm due to its great image quality and fast autofocus performance. It is also much smaller than the 70-200mm f/2.8 lenses.

The following picture is a recent shot from my own Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8. My 5-yoa daughter was invited to a birthday party, and this happy fellow was the birthday boy. The picture was shot at f/2.8, and was lit from windows to the side. Click on the image to view the full size picture. I think you will be surprised with how sharp the lens is at f/2.8.

Well, that didn't take long. I guess I should have asked for more! We've got some Easter egg hunts to go to, but I'll try to get the lens in the mail to you tomorrow.

I was kind of hoping somebody would step forward with an 85mm 1.4 for trade, but I know my wife will be much happier to see the money than she would be to see another lens. I'll be looking forward to seeing some of your work from the lens!

Well, you DID have a convincing response...

Thank you sir! I promise to do my part with some images from the lens. It was simply good timing - I was actively searching for this lens, and the DA* 50-135 f/2.8 was the alternative. I wanted a fast focusing, indoor/outdoor event photography lens.
