[SOLD] Sigma 70mm EX DG Macro f/2.8 Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma 70mm EX DG Macro f/2.8

Asking Price

Item Description
I bought this lens for use on my K10D last spring, for $429 from a local camera store. I have since switched camera brands (the newspaper I shoot for has a large collection of Canon glass) and am selling my Pentax gear.

The lens is designated a 1:1 Macro, but is also excellent for portraiture. As a college student on a limited budget, I've also used it for sports, with respectable results (autofocus is a little slow for that application). The lens is quite sharp wide open (f/2.8), slight improvement at f/4 and f/5.6. Corner sharpness is excellent, the best I've ever seen. Bokeh is very good. There is an autofocus limit switch to enable faster focus times by restricting focus to macro or standard (full range focus can also be enabled).

The lens is in perfect condition, with no scratches on the front or rear elements. I'm asking $300 shipped. Since I've never sold on this forum, I'll be happy to list the item on ebay if you're uncomfortable buying from a seller with no feedback (just PM me if you're interested). The lens will ship out of Nashville, TN.

Also included:
--Lens case
--Front and rear lens caps
--Hoya UV filter
--Lens hood
