Item Description
Somebody stop me...
I bought this here on the Marketplace a few weeks ago, knowing well that it would be an excellent lens that was much heavier than I prefer to carry. Sure enough it's a marvel, and crushes my other teles especially at the edges - it's the best lens I own. HSM is so quick and quiet

And yet, the weight is a problem for me and my troublesome wrist. If it had seals like the DA* I'd carry it in my pack despite the weight, but no guarantees there. And tonight I picked up a 105mm macro, completing (this week's ) dream team of 16-45, 70Ltd and 105 macro - in fair weather this will be my hiking setup with a WR or two in reserve. So off goes the 50-150 with more than a bit of regret.

Lens comes with Sigma pouch, hood and both caps. No screw drive on this one, HSM all the way so earliest Pentax bodies cannot play No issues at all with this copy, though the grips sure look odd in flash pictures!

Trade option is for a K-5 II with relatively low miles / wear, maybe a IIs with a few more miles. My K-5 is out of service and a WR body would be really helpful in our autumnal weather - especially one with better low-light AF. Let me know what you have, or just pay up and I'll watch the Black Friday deals

Yeah, the finish on some of the Sigma's can be difficult to photograph, and the lens can often look kind of bad in a photograph even when it looks fine in person.
