Sigma 50-500mm OS HSM lens in excellent condition

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma 50-500mm OS HSM lens in excellent condition BIGMA

Asking Price
975.00 USD

Item Location
Sunny SW Minnesota (United States)

Item Description
I bought the lens in October and used it through the fall on my K-3. I love the lens and would keep it but after 5 years the bum my daughter is dating finally gave her a ring so right now I need cash more than the lens.

I'm no pro but as far as I can see the lens is in excellent condition with no fog, haze or other nastiness in side. There is some dust but I've never seen any evidence of it in photos and as you can see from the photos here it is so minor it doesn't show up at all.

I'm selling pretty much all my gear to fund this wedding but would be interested in a cheaper all in one walking around lens if you have something to partial swap. Maybe a 18-250 sigma or something like that.

UPDATE! Just to save you the hassle I'll tell you now $1087 is my break even point and with shipping and PP fees even at a grand I'm $100 down. I'd much rather keep it than take a bath on it so don't low ball me. I really do love this lens!

I miss this lens...
Unfortunately I was one of those guys putting rings on fingers, so I have no money to reunite with this beautiful lens.

But, I will gladly say I am much happier paying for a honeymoon with my better half than owning this piece of glass! or am I

That looks like the most recent revision of the lens with optical stabilization and maybe improved optics over prior versions. Consider amending the thread title to "50-500mm OS HSM" to help attract buyers.

I've seen the older versions called "Bigma" while your version gets called "BigmOS". I don't know if that terminology gets used often.

LOL I didn't think to photograph the business side of the lens! THANK YOU!


I have to tell you I have not pushed very hard on this because about every other day I flip flop on selling it. I offered my daughter 5 grand to elope and she didn't bite, but if she did I would have pulled the ad immediately!

That is too bad no one grabbed this up. This is an excellent value for what you get. Nothing else compares in this price range. I combine this with my DA*16-50 and my DA 10-17 which gives me coverage from 10mm to 500mm with three lenses. If you willing to take the time to learn the learns it will greatly reward you. This lens has opened a whole new world of photography for me not possible before. Also I am not sure how many people know that this lens is full frame compatible.

A few examples from an amateur such as myself.

That bites. I am saving up to get one of these too but wont be for another month. Bummer!

I've been researching this vs a teleconverter and decided on this lens so there is less degradation of pics.

Good luck!

I would agree with that. I tried the converter on my 70-200 and on my 55-300 and this lens by itself is way better IQ.

It's listed on ebay now too. BTW I'm selling pretty much all my gear to fund a wedding but would be interested in a cheaper all in one walking around lens if you have something to swap. Maybe a 18-250 sigma or something like that.
