Item Description
Sigma 75-200mm 3.8, Autofocus push-pull constant aperture zoom for Pentax
I think this lens is rather hard to find, I was very lucky to acquire one some time ago. In the meantime, I have purchased the Pentax 50-135mm and don't have much use for it anymore and I'd like to put it back in circulation for you guys to enjoy (plus, I kinda need the $).
It comes with what I believe to be the original Sigma hard leather case and a metal lens hood that I purchased for it. The lens hood looks a little weird on the lens, but it gets the job done.

What I like about the lens : It is SHARP right from wide open at 3.8 (it registers at f4 on the camera body). Also, it has a push pull zoom mechanism, which I find easier to zoom with than a regular zooming ring. It is small and lightweight and has a small filter ring at 55mm. It has a constant f3.8 (registers has f4) aperture, an aperture ring and it is FF compatible (75-200mm f4 on full frame for 160$... sounds like a good deal to me, if only we could get that full frame camera!! ).

What I don't like about the lens : It will zoom creep when facing down (a rubber band might help with that). Although the autofocus is rather quick, I find that it will sometime hunt on "random" occasions. The lens is not designed for digital, so it might explain why the autofocus is not always perfect (although most of my other lenses will also hunt once in a while, especially long zooms). It doesn't handle direct strong light well and will produce flair in such settings.

Asking 160 USD plus shipping (I'm not sure about pricing, but considering is seems very rare and that it's a constant aperture fast (full frame) zoom, I think my price is fair - you can PM me if you'd like to make a different offer).

Bump for a great lens that goes unnoticed far too often, I keep one for myself and use it quite a bit. Its a Carl Zeiss design licensed to Sigma
