Item Description
It's time for this to go as I have not used it as much as I thought I would. For sale, a Sigma DG 150-500mm 1:5-6.3 APO HSM with upgraded firmware and mount so it works on newer Pentax Cameras. I have used this on my K1 MK1 with no issues. Images are fine, there is a photo below of a power line junction box taken at full extension with no cropping. All the regular caveats about this lens are true for this version.

The zoom lock only works when fully retracted to 150mm
There is lens creep when the lens is not level.

Glass is clean & I've had no issues with this lens

You can see other's comments about this lens in the reviews section

Note for our friends to the south, $575 Canadian is roughly $430 US as of this writing.

Buyer pays for insured & tracked shipping. Lens will be well packed.

Price drop to $550 Cnd

Since one of the common themes with this lens is "soft at full extension" - here are a couple more examples taken today at full extention. It's not Pentax 150-450 quality, but there is very little wrong with this lens even at full extension. Jpeg taken directly from the K-1 for the stump, the only edit on the ducks was to bring the shadows out in the harsh lighting - no additional sharpening done:







Thank you for looking.
