[SOLD] FS: Sigma 600/8...

Got it second hand - aside from some cosmetic scuffs on the barrel, it's in very good shape. Includes hood, front lens cap, rear lens cap. Minor dust inside, nothing that would affect image quality. I have no need for it, since I have fast primes and high quality teleconverters for the wildlife and lunar shots.

I paid $225, so that's what I my asking price will be. It's a K mount. This is a manual focus lens.

UPDATE: PRICE NOW LOWERED TO $175.

If you live in the US, shipping is free. Otherwise I'll give you a quote based on your physical mailing address if in Canada or overseas.

Paypal is the preferred method of payment.

Regards,
Marc

Sorry to get you excited...

Not at all - quite light for it's focal length.

Cheers,
Marc

Does it have the screws accessible so you can collimate it if it gets bumped? That's probably why people complain about mirror lens quality. They can get knocked out of line relatively easily.

Here's what I see: the back of the lens has 3 screws, and then another obvious 2 for the tripod collar... hope that helps?

Could be really fun on a cropped sensor... 900mm 35mm equivalent.
