Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 APO EX EXC Condition $690

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 APO EX EXC Condition $700

Asking Price
690 USD

Item Location
San Francisco, CA (United States)

Item Description
I recently required this gem of a lens, but have found myself a little weary of the weight. The lens is very sharp wide open at 200mm, which I mainly bought it for. I used it quite a few times, including at a beach wedding, and this lens never missed a beat, as the AF is very snappy and accurate.

Physically, the lens has very little dust in it. There are a few minor rub marks, but nothing significant that detracts from the aesthetic appeal of the crinkle finish. Lens comes complete with original hood and caps (Pentax rear cap pictured came with lens, but I am a Sigma fan and have a spare Sigma rear cap from my 20-40 that I will provide). Aperture is clean and snappy and AF is very quick at all focal lengths.

I am asking $690 for the lens, with $15 USPS Priority shipping in the US. If you are out of the country, the price for shipping will be significantly higher due to the weight of the lens.

-or-

If you have a 77LTD (either color) in excellent condition (minor dust, minor rub marks fine with me, original caps/case) I am open for a trade.

If you check out my Flickr, the newest set contains a lot of images taken at 200mm, which will showcase this lens' talents.

I will ship the lens out the next business day after payment has been received.

I have owned this lens for some years now and can vouch for its IQ. Yes, it's a bit heavier than some newer lenses, but on the other hand it is very sturdy. Sent it in the other year to Sigma for a CLA, and they kindly did it for free. I have many excellent shots due to this lens. Highly recommended.

I have this model too. A great lens indeed. I've taken some fairly decent shots of my kid's soccer matches with this one.

Bump. Reasonable deals will be considered. Still interested in a FA77 trade.
