Sigma A 28-70/2.8 with caps & hood (manual focus) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma A 28-70/2.8 with caps & hood (manual focus)

Asking Price
120.00 USD

Item Location
PA (United States)

Item Description
Sigma A 28-70/2.8 manual focus constant aperture zoom lens.

Optical: Very nice. Some dust/particles as expected. No scratches on glass. No fungus or haze. Nothing that should affect IQ.

Mechanical: Aperture is clean and fully functioning. Zoom and focus rings operate correctly. I hesitate to call them "smooth", but I doubt they're any worse than most other copies of this lens. I have occasionally had a problem with the aperture on this lens, where the camera thinks the max aperture is 4 (or 5.6) instead of 2.8. This affects modes where you let the camera set the aperture, or use the camera's dial to set the aperture. If the issue occurs, the camera will not set the aperture wider than f/4. It still works just fine if you use the aperture ring. I haven't had the problem with every camera I tried it with. You can read more about it here:

Cosmetic: This lens has definite signs of use and wear. There are scratches and other marks on the barrel. It exhibits some of the old Sigma lens stickiness, but it really isn't all that bad.

See pictures. In the image with the open aperture, the color is the rope behind the lens, not haze or discoloration on the lens.
