[SOLD] Vivitar S1 105mm 2.5 macro, Sigma 400mm APO MF

2 great lens that I just don't use enough to keep.
I have perfect feedback here and on ebay.
I am willing to list these lenses on ebay with "buy it now" for a committed US buyer who wants to take advantage of the MS Live cashback.
prefer payment by paypal.

First is the Vivitar Series 1 105mm f/2.5 1:1 macro. This lens is virtually mint with no marks on the glass or body, no fungus and the blades are snappy and oil free. This copy does not have the original case or caps as it was originally sold by PhotoMed international and it includes a Vivitar 2800 macro flash. It also includes the PhotoMed manual and original Vivitar lens manual. ZX-50 is not included but I am open to offers.

Asking USD$410 + actual shipping SOLD



Second up is the very hard to find Sigma 400mm f/5.6 APO MF lens. This lens is perfect in every way. No marks or problems anywhere. It comes with its case and the original box. A really great telephoto lens. Includes 72mm filter.

Asking USD$375+ actual shipping NOW ON EBAY



Feel free to PM me with any questions. Use Zip code 80016 to calculate shipping. Sigma shipping weight 3.5lb

I was trying to price these reasonably for a quick sale. Add in the 25% current MS cashback and either is a bargain!

You don't use the Vivitar S1 105mm enough? What the heck do you use?

My Tamron 90mm Di macro has become my preferred macro lens. Mainly because of the weight and the easier focus. Still love the Viv, but the Tammy won the cage fight

Fair enough. I was worried at first the Vivi might be too heavy, but I find instead my lighter macro lens gets little use. However, I have never used that Tamron.

I never found the Viv too heavy on the camera, but I noticed the extra weight in my bag!
