Item Description
I bought this really nice lens used when I was much more into photography some years back. I have not used the lens much, and really can't justify it sitting around when someone else could be enjoying it and I could do something else with the money! Plus, I have amassed far too large a lens collection over the years -- so this baby is going, sadly.

As far as I have seen (from monitoring the Marketplace and eBay from time to time), this appears to be a fairly rare lens, and users like it a lot -- see reviews at Sigma 400mm F5.6 APO (AF) v3: 1995 > Lens Reviews - Sigma Lenses - Pentax Lens Review Database -- average user rating is 9.00 / 10! It is fun to use because of both its reach and its macro capability. And SO much cheaper than the Pentax-FA 400mm!!!

I cannot discern any functional or optic flaws in this copy hence the rating of Excellent, though I am not an expert. Note that there is some stickiness of the finish on the body near the lens; the review page states this can happen with age.

The sample pics are from a K-x and later from a K-30, both jpeg right out of the camera downsized for posting. The shot of the barn was taken about 1/5th mile away from that barn! And with a good T/C you could get even more reach.

Case, tripod mounting bracket, and both end caps included. Will pack very well.

FYI all interested, I am going to post new photos since my K30 is now fixed and I can use that rather than my old K-x.

UPDATE: Due to a family trip we moved up, this is being delayed; apologies.

I finally attached the lens to my K30 and took some photos on a fairly nice day. A little nicer quality/detail when attached to a better body, I think. The barn photo (sorry it is a bit crooked) was taken about 1/5th mile away from the barn.

Also lowered the price!
