US (United States)

Item Description
I bought this beast locally 4 or 5 years ago. The seller was switching brands and he was selling it for an 'affordable price' (i.e. $2300) so I went for it.
I have graded it as "good" and not excellent for two reasons (see pictures).
1st - the are scuffs in the hood and the tripod mount
2nd - there are stains in one of the inner glasses, I would say it is the first inner glass. The look like cleaning smudges or drops and they are visible under strong light. They do not show in pictures at f32 and the pictures I have taken with it have always been good so they have never bothered me (and I am positive it is NOT fungus). I can say the lens performs perfectly but do NOT buy it if you want a pristine copy. Glasses do not have scratches and the aperture is clean. I never needed adjustments in any of my cameras (K-x, K-20, K-5 or K-3). I have used it with the Tamron 1.4x, the Kenko 1.5x, the Sigma 1.4x and the Sigma 2x. With the latter the IQ was a bit lower; with the rest IQ was still great.

It comes with the tripod mount, the lens hood (which is massive), the original sigma filter (drop-in) and the rear cap.

This is probably my favorite picture taken with the lens and my K-5 (and the Tamron 1.4x):

Please, feel free to ask me any questions. I can also take pictures with certain settings (weather permitting) upon request.

I think I have never seen one for sale here and I really do not want to let it go but it is too heavy (see last picture with my 55-300 DAL) and I am trying to concentrate in my M42 collection.

$1600 + Paypal fees if any. I will cover for insured shipping.
I will listen to reasonable offers and even partial trades for a Pentax S or a takumar 100 2

Can you use a filter for the front element?

I do not think so (at least not a threaded one). The drop-in filter is more convenient and the hood gives you the protection it may need.
