[SOLD] Sigma 105mm f2.8 Macro EX Marketplace Listing

Sigma 105mm f2.8 Macro EX

Item Description
I'm selling this only to slim the bag down further and due to a couple of recent personal setbacks.

it's really a beautiful lens. Top quality build and comes with a matching metal hood. I'll have to check but I think I have the original box that came with it.
I'll add photos tomorrow of the lens and update the listing.

Glass and cosmetics in great shape. Caps included. There is a small dent (very small on one side of the hood and that does not affect the lens at all. No surface paint missing where the dent is.

Have a look at recent Ebay sales Last one to go was the newer version (basically the same lens with a lightler plastic chassis) that sold for $445.00, Amazon lists the lens at $479.00.

For $329.00 including shipping, grab a bargin on a great lens.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Are you selling or trading this item?

Some pics. The dent in the hood is barely visible but it is there. The caps are not the originals. I lost the lens cap and replaced it with a more secure one and replaced the rear cap as the Sigma version is a PITA to use.

Hi Peter
I am curious have you used the lens as a normal prime or just as a macro? wondering how long it takes the autofocus when used as a non-macro shot? had this lens a while ago and cant remember how it was

Just use the limiter and it's quite good as a normal tele. I've used it for some wedding work in that capacity. It really isn't much slower than any AF screwdrive lens. Works well in low light and in normal daylight, it's fast enough that it won't be any issue. I'd say it's about the same speed to lock focus as my FA50mm f1.4 most of the time as long as the limiter is on. Without that, it will range back and forth if there's near and far objects.
