PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma A 50mm f/2.8 Macro (1:1) manual focus

Asking Price
150 USD 120 USD

Item Location
Pennsylvania (United States)

Item Description
Sigma A 50mm f/2.8 Macro, manual focus

This lens is very well regarded here. https://www.pentaxforums.com/userreviews/sigma-50mm-f2-8-macro.html

It has true 1:1 macro capability without needing extra parts.

Includes front and rear caps. The front is original, I'm not sure about the rear. EDIT: Includes the original hood as well (not pictured).

USPS Priority Mail shipping is free in CONUS, add $1 for AK or HI.
Buyers outside the US be aware I will charge actual shipping, and I will not lie on the customs form.

See photos.

The moth is a 1:1 crop of a picture taken with exact lens.

Please ask if you have any questions.

For trades, they can be plus cash (or additional items), as appropriate.
I'm interested in:
A fast autofocus prime (50/1.7, 35/2.4, etc)
An f/2.8 constant autofocus zoom (17-50, 24-70, 28-70, 28-75, 70-200, 70-210, etc)
A newer DSLR (K30/K50/K500/K5/K5II/K5IIs)

bump.

Any interest?

If you think the price is too high, make an offer. According to the "sold" posts, the last two of these lenses went for $175 each.

I'm interested but I'm wondering if you've had any problems with aperture setting from the camera body in A setting? Or does it just work? Thank you.

I have seen images of this lens with a lens hood. Does this come with one? Thanks again.

I have not had any trouble with this lens. If you saw my post about aperture setting troubles, that was in relation to a Sigma 28-70 f/2.8 lens.

If it has a hood, I don't know where it is. I'll take a look around and see if I have it.

Ok, let me know about the hood. I saw the post about the spring that provides tension behind the aperture control contact on another site somewhere. So thought I'd ask about it.

I have located the hood. It will be included in the sale.

I had to do some internet digging to make sure it was the right one, because it's an unmarked screw-in hood (which is probably how it became separated from the Macro in the first place), but I found a site that shows pictures, and it is the same hood.

Bump.

It's going to eBay soon if no one here wants it.

I've had zero problems with it. I'm only selling it because I recently acquired a 100mm macro and can't justify keeping both.

EDIT: Sale pending!
