$675.00 USD

Item Location
Colorado (United States)

Item Description
If you need the widest available lens for your Pentax K-camera, you might be out of luck. Sigma has taken this lens out of production, and it's extremely scarce at the usual used-gear outlets. But I have this one, and it's up for sale... reluctantly. As tested on my K5IIs, this is one of the sharpest lenses of any type that I've ever used. I can send you large sample files, if you like. I bought it, and the K5IIs, as an emergency backup to keep my real estate photo business going. I've been delighted with the results, but now my FF Sony is repaired, and that camera isn't going anywhere. So, with some sadness, I've decided to seek them both, because I can't afford to maintain two different SLR systems. That's the story, in a nutshell.

This lens has no obvious signs of wear or abuse. The matte black finish has dulled a bit, as Sigmas typically do.

I am a very honest, service-oriented seller. Check my feedback over at eBay, under the same name, I've earned a 100% positive feedback rating through 260 transactions.

This is an incredible, hard to find lens. There isn't another lens on the market that even competes with it. Very sharp and good color contrast for sigma. The copy, I have greatly outrates the official review. Great lens.

I love this lens. I am glad I got my copy when I did since they are so hard to find now.
