Nebraska (United States)

Item Description
Sigma 30 EX DC F1.4 - Sigma describes this lens "A lens like no other" - this is true. This is the earlier screw drive model.

Sharp, dreamy pictures come from this lens. +3 on my K5II and it makes magic all the time. It is sharp wide open. Reminds me a lot of the DA*55 in rendering. This is a traditional copy - this is not a landscape lens - every one knows that because the corners are soft. Sigma made it that way.

This copy is in excellent condition, has the original box, caps, case, hood, and of course the lens. Glass is clean and the body is also. I am selling because my DA*16-50 F/2.8 is pretty swell with wide portraits. That is the only reason. I really don't want to get rid of this, because I always find myself going back and buying another one (I've sold 2 already on here). However, right now, with a Disney trip for 3 princesses and my wife and I and a few other things - the time is right to say good bye.

I will attach pictures of it, but like I said, it has everything - hood, caps, box, and case.

Does your copy have the smooth rubber coating or the original crinkle finish?

A picture is worth a thousand words

Seventy Sixer - It is a smooth black with the zoom part with the crinkle. I've owned two of these and one of the all crinkle and I've had better results out of the smooth black ones (probably just coincidence). I just posted the pictures so you can see that now.

This picture was shot wide open and has had no post processing done to it. It is a lot sharper on my 21.5 Imac. After looking at the picture it shames me to get rid of this lens. However, the beauty in the picture is going to Disney

Pretty stellar lens.

$260 Shipped.

It is a great lens, for indoor activities. It was my "party" lens.
upgraded to the art version with HSM, and I am missing this version a little: Art version is quite a lot bigger/heavier, AF is slower, PF is also a little more obvious.
Bump for a great lens.

Grahame,
This particular lens was your party lens.
I've taken some real gems with it.
Seriously it is like no other lens. $260 shipped. I'm waiting back on a few PMs but nobody has bought it. Would love to send it out by the weekend. So bump it is.

It is an excellent and very artistic lens. Had a lot of PMs, but nobody wants it bad enough yet. Bumping for an available, beautiful, and capable Sigma 30 1.4.
