[SOLD] Sigma EX 24-60mm F2.8 DG AF Lens

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma EX 24-60mm F2.8 DG AF Lens

Asking Price
$175.00 or Best Offer

Item Description
The large-aperture, wide-angle zoom lens that is an excellent compact companion for digital SLR cameras.

This lens offers a large aperture of F 2.8 over its entire range of focal lengths, which is ideal for low light situations both indoors and out. It has a large depth of field that offers the photographer greater freedom of expression.

By using a new technology and optical design this lens satisfies the needs of digital photography. Two Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass elements are provided for effective compensation of color aberration, which is a common problem with wide-angle lenses. Four aspherical lenses, one moulded glass type and three hybrid aspherical types, offer excellent correction for distortion as well as all types of aberration. The design concept of this lens is especially suitable for the characteristics of Digital SLR Cameras. New coating reduces flare and ghost, which is a common problem of digital cameras and also creates an optimum color balance. This lens has excellent correction for "light-fall-off", which is a common problem of large aperture lenses.
The design ensures sufficient illumination of the corners of the image.

Minimum focusing distance of 38cm (15.0in.) is now a reality

It is capable of taking pictures with a minimum focusing distance of 38cm (15.0in) at all focal lengths. It is very effective for close-up photography. The high performance inner focus system is particularly suitable for using circular polarizing filters and a petal-type hood as the front of the lens does not rotate.

Zoom Lock Switch Mechanism
This lens is also equipped with a zoom lock that eliminates "Zoom Creep". This remarkably compact, high performance zoom lens is ideally suited for traveling

This is a great lens and worth the price. I have a copy myself that I love. It's tack sharp with excellent contrast and color rendering. It rivals the IQ of the DA 40 ltd and easily beats my FA 28/2.8. Yes, I'm comparing it to primes. And yes, it more than holds it's own.

Cheers!

Is the photo you posted a photo of the lens you are selling? I am just asking because it looks like a stock photo. Do you have a photo of the glass of the lens?

Please notice!!!

Please notice that I have changed the asking price for this lens to $175 or Best Offer. This really is a great lens, but as stated previously I was switched to Nikon after purchasing it and no longer have any use for it.

Please contact me with any questions/offers!
