Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4 DC Macro HSM (Contemporary)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4 DC Macro HSM (Contemporary)

Asking Price
425.00 USD $414.99 USD
Item Location
Syracuse, NY (United States)

Item Description
Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4 DC Macro HSM (Contemporary) for Pentax in excellent condition with original caps, hood, box and papers.

I am selling because I have this lens in addition to the newest Sigma 17-50 f2.8 that I tested up against each other to try and decide which I like best. Problem is, that they both have tested extremely well against each other, and I can't really decide (I would really like to keep them both but being so close in performance & pros/cons it wouldn't make sense from a financial standpoint). So I have listed them both to see which one sells first and I will keep the other. The listing for the 17-50 is: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/24-photographic-equipment-sale/256318-sal...tabilizer.html

I have had this lens with OS for more than two years, I think it's the real deal.

AFAIK, the only "outstanding" lens (announced but not yet released) from Sigma in K mount is the 18-35 (A), which is probably the one you had in mind.

The 17-70 (C) has been out for quite some time

Your thinking of the 18-35mm art. I have seen this lens in person at a camera store locally and think it has been out for quite some time. You can even get it on amazon and a few copies are being sold on ebay.

Have you tried either of these vendors? They both show the 17-70 contemporary in Pentax mount on their websites.

Haha... Wide Lens - SIGMA CORPORATION

Their own .AU national website doesn't even show any of the lenses they produced in the last 2 years...

Oh look at that... last update in 2012 ?!?!

And I thought Gentec (Sigma Canada) was slow on updates...
