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

Asking Price
399.00 USD $375 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. Also Includes a Hoya NXT UV filter that has been on the lens since owned.

I am selling because I have decided to take the plunge on acquiring the FA 31 Limited and I need to let go of a couple lenses. I have the Pentax 18-135 so , though the 17-70 is sharper, the 18-135 is more versatile and weather resistant so I decided to keep it.

How does the AF perform on this one? Are there any focus or decentering issues?

I_trax. I also have the 2.8-4.5 version. Wondering if this is really a noticeable upgrade.

AF is quick and silent. No decentering that I have noticed. Pretty sharp across the frame f4 and above from low 20mm - 70mm range. Not quite as sharp in corner at wide end due to distortion (17-20mm range).
