Sigma 300 f2.8 FF Prime lens with Sigma 1.4x & 2.0 tc. Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma 300 f2.8 FF Prime lens with Sigma 1.4x & 2.0 tc.

Asking Price
1,460.00 USD

Item Location
Troy (United States)

Item Description
For sale my beloved Sigma EX DG 300 f2.8 full frame prime lens with Sigma EX DG 1.4 & Ex 2.0 teleconverters. I’ve owned this lens for over three years and it’s a monster both in term of size and performance. I've owned other high performance Sigma lenses, the EX DG 100-300 F4, the 400 f5.6 Macro, but this lens its on another category.

Brief history:- lens was purchased from another pentaxian who made the switch to canon some years back. The lens was re-chipped and calibrated by Sigma service and it performs flawlessly. It’s sharp at F2.8 and razor sharp at F4.0 (my most used setting with this lens.)
Cosmetically- the lens is in good shape, there’s very little wear on the lens itself, the DG letters are faded, there's rubbing mark on the front of the lens from the reversible clamp hood. (the removable tripod mount has considerable wear -see pictures) There’s signs of stripping on the screws in the back from multiple trips to Sigma Service (re-chipping and calibration).
Optically- The lens is in excellent condition, clean and blemish free with no imperfections.
Mechanically- The lens is in excellent condition, screw-drive autofocus is snappy, faster than most SDM or Sigma HSM motors, similar to my F* 300 f4.5. It’s the fastest focusing lens I own at the moment. It responds well and needs no calibration on my K-3 (focus adjustment may be required on other bodies)
Shipping- Shipping to United States ONLY, UPS or USPS priority with insurance, tracking and delivery confirmation.
