[SOLD] Sigma 17-70

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma 17-70 2.8-4.5

Asking Price
$250

Item Description
Hello all, I am selling my beloved Sigma 17-70 lens. The reason I'm selling it is because I've bought a Pentax 16-50 lens. The Sigma is in excellent condition, minimal signs of wear. The optics are in good condition, it has 2-3 speckles of dust inside (mount side of it) but no scratches. The dust inside is not noticeable on pictures, but might have to be looked at later on. I've kept a UV filter or polarizer on it since day one. I have the original sales receipt from Tristate Camera dated September 2007, so the warranty has run out. I will only ship within the USA and accept PayPal as payment. I will post samples on my next post. Thanks for looking!

Here are a few samples taken with a K10D and with the use of a circular polarizer:

What a deal. Seems to me you are giving this great lens away. If I didn't already own mine I'd jump on this deal in a heartbeat!

i wonder what effect can the dust have on the pictures now or later? is dust a sign of poor lens sample where the seals are not air-tight perhaps?

some lenses are "weather sealed" when they are actually mounted on a "weather sealed" body... but even then they are not airtight - they just will not allow dust in when already mounted/during operation - but you can get dust in when you are actually attaching 'em to the body... Sigma 17-70 is not weather sealed by design.
