Item Location

Item Description
I bought this lens to possibly replace my Tamron 300 f/2.8. It seemed to work fine, but weather was bad and I didn't have a chance to test it outside for a while. Too long for returns. The OS works great—it's a significant improvement when shooting with a long lens to be able to see the image stabilized through the viewfinder. But there's something wrong with the autofocus. If focus is close, you can get a subject in focus in one or two attempts. However, the autofocus advances in one tiny burst per AF button press, at least on my K-5. If focus is far off, it will not be able to find focus. Maybe it's not compatible with the K-5. Maybe it needs work. I don't know. The manual focus works well—the throw is long enough for precision.


The lens appears to be in good shape. Finish is not noticeably worn or scratched. Some brassing on the zoom lock switch. A few marks on the tripod mount. Comes with a skylight, ND2, and closeup filter.

Is this really only $275? Or did you mean to put $1275?

I did mean $275. Do note the autofocus issue in the description.

In addition to the AF issues, you may be confusing this with the 50-500. This full frame lens is still reviewed very well, though: Sigma 150-500mm F5-6.3 DG HSM APO Lens Reviews - Sigma Lenses - Pentax Lens Review Database

Sigma has a free update for this lens to get the proper K1 mount that doesn't scratch and a firmware upgrade.
I sent mine back through the local Sigma dealer and didn't even have to pay shipping.....

Good to know. I wonder if I have a local Sigma dealer…

There's a lot of interest in this lens. I have a few takers lined up. Waiting on a decision from the first person in line. I will update you tomorrow.
