Item Description
Possibly the sharpest ultra wideangle lens available for Pentax, full frame image circle so suitable for upcoming full frame DSLR and film cameras, highly rated in the lens reviews. Comes with original padded case, hood, caps, box, booklets etc
Very good condition, especially for this model/finish type, no actual marks on glass, some small areas where matte finish has slightly rubbed off on hood.
NOTE - there are a few specs of dust visible on the outside front element - these are just dust and I shouldve paid more attention to cleaning them off before photographing (was a little rushed trying to photograph about 10 lenses in a short space of time)

Asking US$275 ono
OR AUD$370 due to recent currency fluctuations against USD - might be cheaper for other buyers
+ paypal fee + postage at cost;
US$35 to USA & Canada registered, US$45 to UK & Europe registered, less to Aust NZ etc see - Postage calculator - Australia Post for other locations

Bump!

This is kind of the full frame equivalent FOV of the Sigma 10-20 but having had both, this one definitely has the edge on sharpness.

NOTE - there are a few specs of dust visible on the outside front element - these are just dust on the outside and I simply shouldve paid more attention to cleaning them off before photographing (was a little rushed trying to photograph about 10 lenses in a short space of time)

I think the title has to be Sigma 15-30/3.5-4.5, and not 15-30/3.5-5.6... This also shows on the pics in the original message.

Ah wow, totally didnt spot the typo - thanks.

A couple of people had worked out which lens it was, but sale didnt eventuate for one reason or another - its still available for anyone wanting excellent sharp full frame UWA glass.

BUMP for price reduction!

Seriously Pentaxians - its a great sharp UWA zoom lens, probably unrivaled for FF UWA offerings in Pentax.

Nearly an overall score of 9 by users:
Sigma 15-30mm F3.5-4.5 EX DG Lens Reviews - Sigma Lenses - Pentax Lens Review Database

And stupidly cheaper than what the lens tends to sell for in recent years.

Btw this is a DG lens not a DC (as it is mis-stated in the subject line).

In Sigma speak DG = Full Frame capable while DC = Designed for APS-C (Crop).

Hey thanks for pointing that out, I hadnt realised! (tbh I never really paid much attention to Sigma's naming codes but knew this one was FF while I used the 10-20 on my K7)

Thread title now been amended to suit - and confirming that it is still the full frame model (I used it on my old MZ-30 film camera too).
