Item Description
Hi all,
Since the other valuable Sigma lens I have (300 2.8) is taking longer than I expected to sell and I need some $ I have decided to put up for grabs another lens that you do not see too often.
It is in great shape. Clean glasses and aperture blades and only minimal signs of wear in the body. It comes with the tripod mount, the shade and the original caps.
You can get awesome pictures with this lens and it will not disappoint you. Its weakest point is the AF. It would be great if it was a bit faster. With my K5 sometimes it hunts too much. With my K3 it behaves better. Nevertheless if you want it for macro work it is likely that you will end up using in MF.

Two apperance of this wonderful lens on the same day in the MP... Incredible!

I used to sell my first copy in 2013, but was missing it... And I bought 2 other copies within the next year...
It's heavy, yes, but in the field, you have the reach for those spooky subjects...

Good luck with your sale!

Thanks Weevil. I was planning on selling it for a while since I need some money for my takumar collection. It is a great lens indeed!

Lots of love for this lens, trust me, Just not the cash to pay for it, especially with the value of the Canadian dollar at the moment. Sigh...

I am the happy owner of one of these lenses, Yes, it is heavy, but when you need the reach it is perfect. This is one great macro lens and the price is substantially lower than what I paid for mine 2 years ago.

Between this lens, the Sigma 500 f4.5 and the pending K-1 I'd be spending the next 4 years tax return refunds... yikes.

Oh wait, I had to raid my IRA last year, no refund for me this year... oh the irony.

I have no idea what I'd do with this lens but it takes such pretty pics I want it anyway...
