Item Description
For your consideration, a nice copy of the Sigma DC 17-70 f/2.8-4.5 Macro lens. The body is in very good shape with the only cosmetic issue being the work "LOCK" on the lock button is missing little bit of the O and C in the letters (see pics). Otherwise, no dings, nicks or other paint loss. Focus action is nice and even with just the right amount of resistance to allow precise focus action. Zoom action is precise and as if new. Lock works as expected. Glass is in excellent shape with no scratches, haze, separation or fungi. It may have a particle of dust or two, but if it is in there, I certainly didn't see it. Includes original lens cap w/ cap keeper, lens hood, box, papers and a Pentax rear cap.

Bought it from a PF member and I paid a bit more than I'm asking, but it needs a loving home where it will get more use. It is a very nice lens rendering very nice images. Below is my Flickr album with images taken with this very lens:

So why am I selling it? Believe me, I really would rather not sell it, but I also have a Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 so that FL is pretty much covered. Plus "wifey" wants to see a bit of thinning of the lens inventory before I can buy any more gear. :-/

Please PM with any questions.

Thanks!!

Funny, I'm in the exact same situation! (I just haven't had time to make a post to sell my unused lenses...)

I had the Tamron 17-50 first, then bought the Sigma 17-70 for extended range. The Sigma 17-70 just adds a little bit of extra reach and is better for macro. I did side by side comparisons of the Tamron and Sigma between 17 and 50mm and I really couldn't tell them apart in terms of image quality since they're both so good. They might not be as good as primes, but they are WAY better than a kit lens. I'm sure whoever buys this will enjoy it!
