Sigma 50mm F/2.8 EX DG Macro [Another Price Reduction]

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma 50mm F/2.8 EX DG Macro

Asking Price
170.00 USD

Item Location
Sumner, WA (United States)

Item Description
Up for sale is my Sigma 50mm F/2.8 EX DG Macro. This is an extremely tough lens to let go, as I have a huge keeper folder with it, and I love the way it renders, but I also have a brand new HD DA 35mm Limited (and a new DF-A 100mm WR), and I just purchased a Sigma 70mm Macro from one of our forum members, making it very tough to justify keeping all four...so I’m going to hold my breath, and list it for sale.

Physical condition is great, with just the requisite wear on the textured “Sigma finish”. Glass is excellent, with no scratches, haze, or fungus, any of that stuff. Interior dust is a struggle to see, and the aperture assembly works as it should. This was my number one flower lens, and always delivered great results. Front element is deeply recessed, so no real need for a hood, but I used the hood anyway, and to make storage easier, I picked up a cap for the hood, just to eliminate the hassle of screwing the hood on/off all of the time.

Asking $200 shipped in CONUS (will use UPS), and will ship to Canada (we can PM about cost once I get your location). No other international shipping, sorry. Payment via PayPal.

Includes:
• The lens
• Original front cap
• Original rear cap
• Original hood
• Aftermarket cap for the hood

I no longer have the original box from when I bought it, but be assured that it will be packaged securely.

I don’t have much feedback on our site, but have over 1000 transactions as a buyer/seller on eBay since 2003, (search: greatscott02) with 100% feedback. Thanks for taking the time to look, and please PM me with any questions.

Agreed in a big way. Have been playing with the new Sigma 70 this morning, and will be curious to see how they compare, considering the much higher cost of the 70.

Thanks for the bump

Just a vote of confidence on the 50/2.8 EX DG Macro. I also have had a very positive experience with this lens and it would take something like the Sigma 70mm Macro to entice me to sell.

Bump + one last price reduction, before it goes off to eBay. Great lens with an easy handling FL. Wouldn't even be selling it if I wasn't as pleased as I am with the output from its bigger brother -- my new Sigma 70.

It's not just for Macro, although it is excellent at that as well. I own one and it is just a great over-all lens. I also have the 105/2.8 Macro and cannot say enough great things about the both of them. This is a good price and if I didn't already have one, would certainly snatch it up. It is RAZOR sharp!!!

Good luck with the sale!

Here's a sample of non-macro's shot with this lens

WOW.

Those two shots look fantastic!

I don't know much about this lens (I've never tried a Sigma before) but if you wind up with end results like that....
