[SOLD] Sigma 150-500mm F5-6.3 APO DG HSM lens

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma 150-500mm F5-6.3 APO DG HSM lens

Asking Price
$850 (firm)

Item Description
I have my "Big Sigma" for sale. It is a very nice lens to use, but I really do not use it enough to keep. It is a very good wildlife lens. Its weight and balance make it surprisingly stable handheld, using the K20d's SR.

Overall, it is in excellent condition with all paperwork and the original lens hood, box, soft case, and a UV filter is included. Lenses are clean, obviously free from fungus,etc. It has a slight wear spot on the tripod ring (shown in the photograph) but otherwise the finish is very clean. It does not need any correction to autofocus on my K20D.

This model has the HSM contacts and HSM works well with the K20D, unlike the Bigma.













A few photographs from this lens:

I'm blown away that no one has grabbed this from you. It's a great mate for the Pentax DA* 50-135mm lens. I think it has better IQ than the Bigma just not the wide coverage of the Bigma. But if you have the DA* 50-135mm who cares... And if you pick up something in the 16-50mm range and a couple of Primes you have everything you will need.
Good Luck
