Sigma f/5.6 prime lens for Pentax K Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma f/5.6 prime lens for Pentax K

Asking Price
150.00 USD

Item Location
Frankfort, Ky. (United States)

Item Description
For sale is a legacy Sigma 400mm lens for Pentax K. I've used this non-APO lens for birding with good results when it's stopped down to f/8 or more. No, this is not a premium lens, but it's a good starter / budget alternative to the higher-end superzooms when you learn to use it, as I did.

Chromatic aberrations can often show up and be reduced in editing software.

The lens can be used in auto- or manual-focus mode. One of the photos shows the manual-focus ring under a sliding cover on the lens body.

Glass is clear with no haze or fungus. Body has just a few meaningless scuffs, mostly on the retractable hood.

Included are 72mm UV and circular polarizing filters, both caps, and a #3 Lowepro thick padded case. Note the attached collar for tripod or monopod attachment.

I added a strip of adhesive-backed flocking material inside the hood; it tended to slide too freely back and forth; with the added flocking material, it can be pushed forward and "locked" in the fully-extended position.

See the reviews, and note the link to a detailed video review and advice on using the lens, all here: Sigma / Carl Zeiss Jena (AF and MF) 400mm F5.6 IF MC multicoated Lens Reviews - Sigma Lenses - Pentax Lens Review Database

I have one of these. It was my first lens over 300mm. One thing I really like about this lens is its light weight.
