Item Description
Sigma 30mm F1.4 EX DC, Pentax mount. Like new in original package.

I really like the focal length of this fast prime, and bought three copies in the past. The first one was lost during shipping; this is the 2nd copy I bought from ebay because I can not find one on market at that moment; and right after I put the bid on 2nd copy, I saw one showing up on the forum market, which is in less perfect condition but lower priced. (https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/36-sold-items/239986-sale-sold-sigma-30-f...30-filter.html.) So I am selling the 2nd one, almost like new condition.

As said, the lens is in very good condition. Just a little dust on the focus ring, you can wipe them of if you want. And one small dust (0.3mm?) under front element close to edge. no scratches or fungus or foggy. Focus is quick. It need +2 AF adjusting on K5II.

Come with everything original: the caps, hood, case, box and even the plastic bag.

maybe I should wipe the lens and retake pictures? It is in great condition. If you see any dust on it, they are outside on the surface.

Is this one with sigma's new coating or the old coating (I mean the lens body)?

It is the new coating. It is in great shape and will not become sticky.

I did test and compared the two copies I have. Almost identical performance from F1.4-5.6. I didn't test smaller aperture and the test was done indoor, focusing to ~5 ft.
I am sell this one only because it has original box and is in better cosmetic condition.
I used this lens almost always under very challenging conditions, most in kids' class activities. No flash or any other lightening equipment was possible. Almost always wide-open to get the speed I needed, to catch quick moving kids.
It is actually very sharp in the center even wide-open. Corners are soft at large aperture (>2.0). But that actually helps isolating the subject.

Here I attached 2 maples, 1st one F 1.4 and 2nd F2.0
