SOLD Bigma (Sigma 50-500mm) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
SOLD Bigma (Sigma 50-500mm)

Asking Price
500.00 USD

Item Location
Massachusetts (United States)

Item Description
The original version of the Bigma (Sigma 50-500mm) with case, hood, caps. Lens had CLA by Sigma November, 2013. The glass is spotless outside and in (glass is excellent or better). Diaphragm & autofocus work perfectly. Barrel, zoom & focus rings are all clean, but some of that textured Sigma coating has rubbed off the front end of the tripod foot and sections of its ring-around-the-lens (visible in the second and last two images - this is why I'm only rating the lens condition as "good"). The big lens hood is tricky to twist on or off, especially in the reversed-storage position. There's a lot of friction and squeezing the hood even a little will make it bind a lot. As probably most Pentaxians know, IQ is remarkably good to excellent from 50 to about 300mm, then declines gradually to the nominal 500mm (in reality closer to 450mm) where IQ is acceptable to marginally good depending on extension and f-stop in use.
