Item Description
I made the tough decision to move the Sony mirrorless, so sadly all my Pentax gear has to go.

This lens has been my sports lens for my kids basketball carreers, and a general purpose telephoto for me. It is in excellent condition and functions perfectly. Years ago I bought this and the Tamron 70-200 to compare. The Tamron was a little sharper at 2.8, but I much preferred this lens in every other way. I love the hefty quality feel and the silent focus. Glass is great. It does have a few pieces of dust inside, but nothing that that should affect anything. I think I kept it fairly scuff free for that notoriously easy to scuff/mark Sigma finish. I think the photos accurately show it's outstanding condition.

Please let me know if you have any questions at all.

This is really a nice lens and a Wow level deal! I had one and it was a very good lens. If I did not have the FA* 80-200 I would snatch this one up.

Thanks Geezer. Yes, I loved using it. It just feels like quality. I did not mention above, but it comes with a nice case and comes with the box too as pictured.

A quality lens, very fast AF. Lightroom has a lens profile for it too.

Taken today with the lens and my K-5iis soon to be listed here. No post processing at all, straight out of camera. Taken at just 2 megapixels for easy upload here.

Wow, not sure what I'm doing wrong with the uploads, these pics look a ton better on my computer! If anyone is really interested in the lens, I can send pics so you can verify.

I can't believe it isn't sold yet! This is a fine lens if you don't have the Equivalent Pentax 70-200.
