Sigma 17-70 f2.8-4.5 DC Macro Lens - K-Mount - Price Lowered

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma 17-70 f2.8-4.5 DC Macro Lens - Pentax K-Mount

Asking Price
140.00 USD

Item Location
Central Texas (United States)

Item Description

NOTE: The box shown in the photo is no longer available.

This has been my "go-to" lens - crisp, sharp images, very good close-up capability (SIgma calls it "macro" - I call it "close-up")

Lens is in very-good to excellent condition - there's some minor scuffs - mostly on the lens hood but the glass is clean and clear and the aperture blades are clean, oil free, and snappy.

This isn't the HSM version, but the focus is quick and accurate - I never had any issues with it.

As I said, this was my "go-to" lens for quite some time - did lots of flower photography and chasing the grandkids with it!! A lot of car photos too.

But, since I've sold off my Pentax DSLRs, I don't have a need for this anymore - I'll miss it.

Asking $140 USD - shipping to CONUS and PayPal fees included.

I gather that the previous buyer had some issue with the lens?

This is why I hate selling DSLR lenses. Due to the way the autofocus systems work on DSLR's, it's common for a lens to need adjustment before it works properly on a different body. And some people are unable, or unwilling, to adjust the focus themselves, and they want to blame the lens.

Good luck on your sale. I would be interested in using this lens as a replacement for my Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 that died, but I'm moving more and more towards my mirrorless system these days, partly because of the body/lens calibration issue inherent to DSLRs.

You would be right - buyer claimed it didn't focus???

I've used the lens without any focusing issues on at least 3 different DSLRs - a K30, K-3 and now a K-S2 (and I 'think' I used it on a K20D also). So, no telling what the problem was the buyer had. Anyway, I'm comfortable again putting it up for sale.
