[SOLD] Sigma 50-500mm f/4-6.3, aka ‘Bigma’ + Hoya CPL Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma 50-500 f/4-6.3, aka ‘Bigma’ + Hoya CPL

Asking Price
AU$1300 for the package
(Approximately US$920 06-Jan-09)

Item Description
For sale is my faithful Bigma. This lens has been exceptional, no other words can describe. It is sharp, focuses well and is in near-perfect condition. The only signs of use is a small chip in the paint around the tripod mount (refer photographs). I purchased this from C.R. Kennedy in May 2007.

It comes in all the original packaging, including the genuine Sigma padded bag which is also in excellent condition.

I’ll also include the Hoya CPL to suit this lens. It is a huge piece of glass and I paid over $200 for it when I got the lens.

These lenses have jumped to $2100 RRP in Australia now so this is very good buying for a known-good lens.

For samples please refer to all my previous threads here:

Also, all shots on my web site and online gallery are taken with either the 18-125 Sigma, or this lens.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Yes, still for sale. The retail price of this lens has increased 15% or so as of January 1st so at AU$1300 it's a bargain for a lens in this condition.

PM me if you're interested
