[SOLD] FS: Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO Macro II Super

Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO Macro II Super

I've owned this for about 3 years now, and I just don't use it much. Glass is in very good condition, body is also in very good condition. Includes original front cap (and probably the original back cap too, but i think it's on another lens right now!)

The macro function works from 200-300mm, and gets down to 1:2 at 300mm.

The zoom ring is a little tight, but not something that seriously affects the performance.

Any other questions? I'm asking $125 + shipping for the lens.

Mike

Can you help me out with some of the features of the lense?
APO DG vs DG vs DL?
Is there a switch to change to macro?
If a switch does the camera have to be in a certain mode to use the macro?
Cannot find info on Macro II Super, can you help?
Autofocus?
Guestimate shipping to my city (see below avatar).
Thanks a bunch.

I find it all a bit confusing too.

I purchased this before they made the digital SLR versions. It is fully compatable with film. There is a switch for Macro which you can use from 200-300mm. Yes, it is AF.

Also, i have one offer on the table right now, so it may be sold. I'll let you know.

The lens is still for sale if you are interested. I imagine that shipping would be around $15. If the cost is less than that, I will refund the difference. If it's more, I'll eat the cost.

Yes, I saw that. Frank is looking for the DG version, which I found out has an updated coating (like the DA series for Pentax).

Thanks!
