Asking Price
350.00 USD

Item Location
Houston, TX (United States)

Item Description
I am selling my Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4.0 Contemporary lens. I purchased it new from Adorama on 7/30/2013 and the lens was my main workhorse and walkaround until I acquired the 18-35 earlier this year. I really enjoyed using this lens while I had it, but I haven't touched this lens since getting the 18-35 and I don't see that changing.

I've been very careful with this lens and taken good care of it. It has always been protected with a UV filter. As you'll see from the pictures, it's in immaculate shape:

The original end cap is included:

as are the original front cap and petal hood. Also included is the original box:
Attachment 242152

In fact, all the original packaging and paperwork is included as well (original receipt from Adorama will be among it). When you receive it, you will feel like you are getting a brand new lens:

This lens has never been dropped or otherwise damaged. There's a small white mark on one side of the hood (not shown), but that's about it. The mount is clean, as I rarely took the lens off when I used it:

You will also get a couple of extras with it as well. I am including a set of 72mm filter I received with the purchase from Adorama. You'll get a UV filter, CPL, and ND2 with a case. They aren't terribly high quality but they are serviceable until you can get something you like better:

The lens does not come with a case from Sigma, but I am including a light bag you can use to protect and carry the lens.
Attachment 242156

If you are interested in a more sturdy CPL, I have one I can include for an extra $20. It's from ProMaster:
Attachment 242157

It's solidly built and overall much more satisfactory than the free one I will include. If you want a rubber screw-in hood, I can provide a brand-new, unopened one for an additional $5. (Sorry, no picture of that.)

Finally, you can see a slew of sample pictures taken with the lens here:
