Sigma 105mm f/2.8 EX Macro

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma 105mm f/2.8 EX Macro

Asking Price
300.00 USD

Item Location
Oregon (United States)

Item Description
Selling a Sigma 105mm f/2.8 EX Macro lens. Really impressed with this one, lighting fast AF, especially for a Macro. And it has a focus limiter so that helps as well. Good or better condition, some scuffs and dust here and there but nothing objectionable.

This is the EX version. Sigma 105mm F2.8 EX and EX DG Macros Lens Reviews - Sigma Lenses - Pentax Lens Review Database

I'm tempted to keep this one as I was super impressed with the AF. But I already have a DFA 100mm macro so this one has to go.

Free bumb.

This lens is an absolute cracker! I love the colours it produces and it is superbly sharp even at 2.8.

Does this come with a hood and is this the version with OS?

I do not believe this model came with a hood, there is no bayonet connector for one, front element is so deep I cannot imagine needing one. And there is no OS, Pentax would have IBIS.

I've never used the supplied hood with macro lenses, at least with a few I've owned: Sigma 50mm, Tamron 90mm, and the two Pentaxes in the photo. The front element is very deep. A step-down ring provides more protection, and is not in the way.

Sometimes I wish the Pentaxes had the Limit/Full switch.

The hood that normally comes with this lens is a screw-in type. Like the other's have said, not really needed due to the recessed element. They sell the official hood separately at a number of online shops, and you can buy knockoff versions for considerably less, as well. My best friend has this model, leaves the hood in his bag -- and gets excellent results. If I didn't already have a great macro lens -- a PM would have sent for this when it was first listed. Great lens that really delivers

Oops, I made a incorrect comment, I'll try better this time. This lens is very sharp and I've found it to be a good performer for shooting some close sports photography as well.
