Item for Sale
Sigma 170-500mm f5-6.3 Autofocus PKA

Asking Price

Item Description
Mint Sigma 170-500mm APO f5-6.3 (reads f4.5 on my K10D)

Included with the sale is the lens, hood, both original caps, removable tripod mount, and original padded case.

This lens is truly "AS NEW"

Auto-Focus is fast, zoom is well dampened, glass is perfect. There are no marks anywhere on the lens, no interior dust, no marks on the front or rear element.

Absolutely mint!

I just find that I don't use this focal length.

It isnt too long when at the 170mm (fully collapsed) length but when it is out to 500mm is is a monster, especially with the hood attached.

sigma 50-500mm is better at 500mm, you know.

but then sigma 170-500mm is always very nice between 170mm - 400mm.
only between 400mm - 500mm is not the best, but it is not a real problem: it is satisfactory also at 500mm.

about me it is a very good choise:
- autofocus !
- APO lens !
- smaller the sigma 50-500mm !!
- lighter then sigma 50-500mm !!
- cheaper then sigma 50-500mm !!!!

last question: where you can find a focal range 300mm/500mm with Autofocus (...for pentax...) for 500 USD?

about me it has a very good compromise price\quality.

I am hesitant to sell it really but with Christmas coming up I bit the bullet and put it up here. If it doesn't sell in a relatively short time I will just keep it since it is basically new.
