Sigma 170-500 DC APO Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma 170-500 DC APO

Asking Price
230.00 USD

Item Location
Ploiesti (Romania)

Item Description
I am selling one of my most used lens, Sigma 170-500 mm f4.5-6.3, But I have changed the system, so is has no use anymore. Comes with original caps, and hood.. The Lowepro hard case is optional.

This lens condition is a mixed bag. Optically is very good. Esthetic is 6/10. Many signs of use on the body and hood. But mechanical is good, even the focus ring is somehow stiff, so no wobble of the lens when extended.

Price is 230 USD, including Paypal fees. Price for case will be set if needed. Transport fees depends of the destination, but AFAIK is about 20-40 USD..

Besides pictures of the lens, I will post some made with this lens, all handheld. By the way, taking pictures handheld with this lens needs some training. I personally needed some weeks to get used to it. The first picture is taken at 170 mm and is a resize of the entire frame. Second is at 500 mm, also a resize of the entire frame. The last three pictures are cropped to 1/1 pixels. None has any kind of post processing.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Are you selling or trading this item?

Silly question, perhaps, but: Is this auto-focus of manual-focus only?
