[SOLD] Sigma 50-500mm f4-6.3 EX APO DG (Bigma)

Sigma 50-500mm f4-6.3 EX APO DG: $850.

The classic wide-range long tele zoom for wildlife, affectionately known as "Bigma". Has AF/MF switch, and zoom locks at 100mm. Big and heavy (4 pounds) but said to work with fullframe. Package includes removable tripod mount, petal hood, large padded sack (not shown in photo), two shoulder straps, front (pinch-style) and rear caps, and original box.

Excellent shape, no optical or cosmetic defects (just too much lens for me.) There's one very small speck of dust on the primary element, too small to even show up in the photos; it has no effect on the image whatsoever.

Reviews of this lens:
The Wow Zoom for Pentax. Sigma APO 50-500mm F4-6.3 EX DG HSM. First Impressions... - Photo.net Pentax Forum
PentaxForums.com Third-Party Pentax Lens Review Database - 50-500mm F4-6.3 EX DG HSM (AF Lens)
Sigma | 50-500mm f/4-6.3 EX DG AF Lens for Pentax AF | 736109

It's also listed on Amazon, but note that they are incorrect in listing it with HSM/SDM; on Pentax mount it comes with reliable and fast screwdrive AF:
Amazon.com: Customer Reviews: Sigma 50-500mm f/4-6.3 EX DG HSM APO RF Telephoto Zoom Lens for Pentax and Samsung SLR Cameras

Available separately or with the Bigma are the best Multicoated UV and PL filters I could find:
Bower 86mm MC-UV: $45 (originally $60)
Hoya 86mm PL: $75 (originally $106)
Price for entire package with both filters: $925

Will ship anywhere in contiguous US via UPS or USPS, at actual cost. PayPal only. 30-day money-back guarantee.

Sample photos with Bigma

Here's a sample photo of "Notch-ear", one of my neighbors. That's a genetic defect with her ear, because she's passed it to her fawns.

Photo is at 500mm, f8.0, 1/20 second, at ISO 400, and reduced down to 640 pixels to upload here. Second photo is 100% crop. I've sharpened it up quite a bit, and increased the contrast and saturation slightly.

To Alberta, Canada? Let me pack it up and get an accurate shipping cost for you this afternoon.

Meanwhile, though, if a US offer comes in, Bigma is still available.
