[SOLD] Sigma 70-200mm EX APO and Sigma 2x TC APO

Hi everyone,
I'm selling my Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 EX APO lens and Sigma 2x TC together. Both of these are the older non DG versions (so the lens is not one of the Macro). I'm selling them both for $650 US (that is $475, $150 for the TC and shipped insured UPS) shipped to the US.

I'd be willing to sell to Canada but it will cost more. Last time I sold there via paypal I lost quite a bit of money on the exchange rate plus the "international transaction fee" fee that paypal charged (shipping was extra via UPS as well). To avoid all that my 1st preference is to sell in the US.

I'll take offers in order of PM's (and US 1st then Canada) I get. I am accepting paypal as payment.

Details:
Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 EX APO: I bought this lens used from KEH about 3.5 years ago. It has some wear around the zoom ring (see photo) and has a couple of specs of dust in the lens which do not affect IQ at all. This lens recently went in for repair because the AF stopped working, came back and AF was fixed fine. It does back focus at f/2.8 and 70mm which I dial in a +7 on my K20 for. I'm selling this pretty cheaply in case the buyer wants to send it on to Sigma for a quick adjustment (something I just don't want to bother with). The great thing is that with the TC there seems to be no issues with AF accuracy even with the +7.

I have the case, lens caps, removable tripod collar and sunshade for this.

Sigma 2x TC APO: I bought this new when I bought the 70-200. I main application was birding with this combo and it worked great. There is nothing wrong with this TC at all.

I have all the caps, case, box, manual, ect with this.

Now for the photos.. lots of them

I forgot to include the lens shade in this photo but I do have it (see photos below)

Test Shots. Not very interesting but I wanted to take something that had a little bit of texture.

LOL! You know the funny thing when I 1st read your reply I was like "Did he visit my pbase page and is asking a question about my Homer Spit photos from Alaska" so I kept refreshing my private messages.. then the light bulb came on and realized you were talking about Homer Simpson from the sample photos

Oh man, it must have been a long week Thanks for the bump!
