[SOLD] Sigma 50-500mm

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma 50-500mm

Asking Price: Now on ebay Starts @ $760

Item Description


This is the Sigma EX DG 50-500mm "Bigma". It's in great shape. There are a few small wear mark in the "EX" finish (mostly on the tripod collar / handle) , and there is a bit of dust inside the lens (both shown in the photos).

The glass is flawless. All functions work perfectly, aperture clean, dry and snappy etc.

Comes with the box, paperwork, case, carrying strap, hood, front cap (generic rear cap). Also included are an 86mm UV filter (non-mc, I leave it on for protection while carrying the lens around in the bag and usually take it off for shooting), and an extra 86mm pinch cap since you can't remove or replace the stock sigma cap while the hood's on.

EDIT:
I wanted to mention what Bigma owners already know which is that although the lens is advertised as f/6.3, it will report f/6.7 on your Pentax. This is common to all Sigma 50-500s and not a fault with this copy (google it if you don't believe it ). Peter Z. reminded me of it and I thought I better mention it so it doesn't surprise anyone.

Additional Details
Due to weight, size and price (import duties, etc) I think this is a better deal for US buyers, but we can talk about shipping out of the country.

Shipping to paypal verified addresses only or forum members with good feedback.

I think shipping in the US (lower 48) ought to be about $20 or less in the lower 48 states - FedEx Home Delivery

Please send me a private message if interested in the item!

Sale Pending...

A buyer is considering the lens and will let me know by midday tomorrow whether he'll buy or not, so the sale's pending, but feel free to PM me to get in line should it fall through.

Indeed, thanks! I thought I had searched before I posted the want ad and put it in my sig, but then I did a search and found one for sale... At least I got Frank to list his New In Box adapter this way .

The BIGMA is available again.

Pending sale to Canada fell through - he did the math and realized that paying the Canadian tax, etc., ruined the economics of buying used from the states.

bump...

Sunday Bump.

I wanted to mention what Bigma owners already know which is that although the lens is advertised as f/6.3, it will report f/6.7 on your Pentax. This is common to all Sigma 50-500s and not a fault with this copy (google it if you don't believe it ). Peter Z. reminded me of it and I thought I better mention it so it doesn't surprise anyone.

If anyone has a high quality, high weight rating tripod ball head rated to say, 20 lbs. or more, I'd be interested in a trade (value of the ball head taken off the bigma ). Bonus points for QR plates...

MS Live Cashback (but for how long?)

As of right now, MS Cashback is at 9% for ebay, and I'm willing to put this lens up as a Buy It Now with free shipping in the US for $860, and you could get the lens shipped for $783 (after your rebate from MS). Don't know how long cashback will stick around this time???
