[SOLD] (AUS) Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 HSM

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
(AUS) Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 HSM

Asking Price
A$820 or trade for Sigma 50-150mm f2.8

Item Description
This is a great lens, but it's a bit too big for me.

I'm hoping to trade it for the smaller Sigma 50-150mm f2.8

If I can't find somebody willing to trade, then I'll sell this and buy the smaller lens.

I know the 50-150mm isn't suited to full frame - but I can;t see myself ever buying a full frame body anyway.

This lens is in superb condition, includes box, tripod bracket and collar, padded case. Purchased from Paxtons in Sydney last year.

I've never done any objective testing, but I have been impressed with the picture IQ from day one.

Please PM with any questions.

Sorry for these terrible quality pictures - I took them with my phone because the K-7 body is packed up ready to be sold.

It does show that the lens is in like new condition - It's perfect.

Most recent photo taken with this lens (it's great at weddings, even when you're sitting near the back, like I was!) - k20d, 200mm, iso640, 1/100, stopped down slightly to f3.2 - as you can see, it doesn't have any softness issues.



Wildlife (focussed on eye): 170mm at f/4


Sport (night game at Sydney Football Stadium): 200mm at f/4



I can't find any photos on my flickr that are wide open - but that's only because I stop dwon for pretty much all of my photography - but I think the sharpness at f3.2 in the wedding shot above shows this lens is a good copy.

Cheers,
Dave

Tentatively sold - I'll call you tomorrow David.

Now if anyone has a copy of the Sigma 50-150mm to sell me, or even the Pentax 501-35mm at a good price, let me know.

Thanks
