Sigma 10-20mm f3.5 EX HSM , 1:3.5 - Excellent condition Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma 10-20mm f3.5 EX HSM , 1:3.5 - Excellent condition

Asking Price
470 AUD

Item Location
Newcastle, NSW (Australia)

Item Description
Here is the wonderful Sigma 10-20mm superwide zoom, the f3.5 constant version (rather than the older f4 - 5.6 one) - this one has an average review of 9.14 out of 10 on this forum.
With it's larger size it vignettes far less than the others, and it is sharper, even when comparing stopped down versus stopped down. (i.e. ok you probably wouldn't use it wide open but at f8 it still outperforms its rivals). I also find it very vibrant and contrasty. There has not been an excessive amount of post processing on any of the example photos I've attached. Out of the three photos, the first two were taken at 10mm, the last at 20mm.

Sigma 10-20mm F3.5 EX DC HSM Lens Reviews - Sigma Lenses - Pentax Lens Review Database

It comes with everything it did new - box, booklet, AND nice black pouch with a belt loop but I forgot to photograph this. Please note it IS included and is in excellent condition.
The lens itself is in excellent condition, with enough little marks etc. to not call it "Like new", but optically it's perfect and the body is great too. There are no noticeable blemishes.

Paypal and bank deposit accepted. Paypal will be an extra $8, which doesn't quite cover what they'll charge me!
Pickup from Newcastle or Sydney also accepted and attracts a $15 discount.
I will post overseas but before you contact me please know that it will be a MINIMUM of $30 postage, because Australia Post is a rip off.
Reasonable offers considered - unreasonable ones will not be because I don't NEED to sell it.

I'll let the reviews and my photos do the talking now.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

I do enjoy it but I've got $100 to spend at B&H and there is a good deal on the Rokinon 8mm fisheye, plus I have the DA* 16-50.
