[SOLD] Sigma APO 170-500mm, Like New Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma APO 170-500mm, Like New

Asking Price
US $475

Item Description
This lens is in beautiful, like new condition. Shows very little, if any, signs of use. When I got it, the lens hood was still wrapped in plastic. Holding lens up to a light with aperture wide open, I could see one very tiny fleck on an inner element. Otherwise, glass is like new.

Includes box, case, lens, tripod mount, hood and original front and rear caps.

I'm including 100% center crops from 170, 300 (actually 310) and 500mm. Crops are wide open, 1 stop down and 2 stops down.

I was impressed with sharpness, even out to 500mm. At 500mm, only the wide open shot seemed soft. Seemed well balanced using tripod mount with my K10D.

Downsides are the size (it's just shy of 3 lbs) and lens creep as there's no zoom lock.

Please pm me with any questions.

hi, do you still have this for sale? i was wondering about the fleck you mentioned -- is there a way you could maybe take a photo (of something white, maybe?) and post it, to see how apparent the fleck is or isn't?

could you also say whether or not you used a tripod in the above sample photos?
