Asking Price

Item Location

Item Description
For sale is a RARE SIGMA EX 180mm f/3.5 APO IF MACRO for Pentax (Non-DG version) Made In Japan.
Serial number : 1003037

I have two copies of this lens, so this one has to go to fund other purchases...
I bought it locally in Québec, Canada, from the original user.

This is the "poor man's alternative of the FA* 200 f4"


One of the BEST Pentax AF macro lens with a long range. It has a nice bokeh and is sharp wide open.
It can also be used as a small telephoto or event a portrait lens!

This is an ideal lens to chase bugs in the field...it lets you get farther away from the subject.

It has very convenient focus limiter and focus shift features.
It has a removable tripod collar which makes it easier to fit into camera bags.
It is also FF Compatible!


Appearance :
Condition Excellent+. (Could be Like new but put Excellent because of the small crack on the lens hood )
So the only thing is that the lens hood is cracked at the distal end (barely visible), and that do not cause any issue on its use, it stays secure either mounted or reversed (I can't explain how it got like this, probably hood was squeezed too much in a bag).
Barely minimal signs of use may be visible on the exterior coating. Even the tripod Mount looks like new...

Full Working condition: Autofocus is fast and precise. Smooth focusing ring. Lens elements are free of scratches
There is no haze, no fungus. There is no visible dust inside. Aperture blades are clean and snappy.

Includes: Front cap, Rear cap, original Lens case + Strap, 72mm Protection filter, Lens hood. Packaged in original box with all manuals and accessories.

(Photos of the lens to be coming soon. Sample Photos attached taken at f3.5 and f4).

SIGMA EX 180mm f/3.5 DG APO IF MACRO for Pentax (Non-DG version)

Confused by 'Non-DG'. Did you maybe mean Non-HSM/Non-OS version?

Ho boy! Copy&Paste striked again! Thanks I have made the correction... (It was too late last night when I did the ad lol).
And BTW, this lens (or the DG variant) is not HSM nor OS (these features never existed in Pentax mounts).

Here are the photos of the item... apart from the crack on the hood, you can see it's in pristine condition...

FWIIW, I own the EX DG version of this lens and I, too, got rid of all my Pentax, Tokina, Tamron, etc., macros when I worked this magical lens. It is the finest macro lens I have ever used and a beautiful mid-range telephoto. It is a special lens, IMHO. Don
