Item Description
For Sale:

OK. Drastic price reduction and selling as is. This lens worked fine on my K5iis but it cannot be calibrated with my K3 I just received this week. I can't even tell if it's front or back focused. So it's literally going in the garbage if it doesn't sell. I'll repeat, it worked fine and took good images with my K5iis, but my K3 hates it, so it's of no value to me. The price reflects the cost of motivating me to make a trip to the PO. Anything less is not worth my time and I'm tired of bumping this ad.

More details: I Purchased on ebay in March for trip to Big Sur during pre trip LBA Panic Attack. I was worried about flare on sunset pics with my Sigma 20-40, so I bought this lens. Upon receipt I took it out in the back yard and shot some pics, everything seemed fine so I stuck it in my bag. Went to Big Sur and spent a week shooting from Montana De Oro to Monterey, but never once put the lens on my camera. I'm a zoom guy and my Tamron 17-50 did well enough shooting into the sun, so I didn't see a need to change.

Fast forward 4 months... my K3 shows up last Tuesday (8/19). This past weekend I go out and shoot with my Sigma 100-300 at the bird park. After reviewing the pics last night, I realize something's really off. So I start calibrating it and find it's now a -7. I decide to try all my other lenses. 3.5 hours later everything else in my bag is calibrated (ranging from +10 to -8... geeez) and works fine, including the other lenses I have for sale here, but this one just won't play nicely. I think it's back focused, but I can't tell for certain. Either way, my K3 doesn't like this lens, so it's stuck on a shelf awaiting a new home. My conscious won't let me sell this lens at full used price any more, so although it may actually not be "broken" (I get focus lock in both LV and PDAF), I'm marking it down and selling it as such.

Cosmetically it's in good to very good shape, no dust, no dings, etc. everything works fine. See pics.

Font and rear caps, no box.
