Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX Refurbished (old version) for $369 at Sigma Outlet
Posted By: seventysixersfan, 05-14-2013, 11:07 AM

Seems like a pretty good deal--> $369 and free shipping in the USA! 90 day manufacturer's warranty. Not sure how much stock they have, so it may sell out quickly. This is the old version of the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX DC lens that was discontinued earlier this year. The new "Art" version of the lens has been just released although not yet made available for K-mount.

I bought a Sigma 50-150 refurbished from the Sigma Outlet last year and it looked brand-new. Came in the original box (not a "white" box) and all the original accessories and paperwork. I would expect the same of this refurbished lens.

See:
30mm F1.4 EX DC HSM Refurbished | Sigma

(you have click the drop down box to choose mount - Pentax)

I would snap one up but alas, I don't have $370 burning a hole in my wallet! Plus I'm kind of holding out for the new Art version to be offered for K-mount...

(here's a comparison between the old version and the new version; see for yourself if it's worth it to you to wait for the new version or to save some cash and get the old one...

The new version isn't coming out for Pentax anyway

They specifically said they weren't bringing it out for A-mount because it wasn't a big seller(probably means same for the K-mount). I think you'll have to spring for the 35/1.4.

Only $20 (or $70) more than they sold out at new :-( Still not too bad for a decent lens.

After being quite recently in the $260 range for C/N and occasionally Pentax , it doesn't look like a hot deal...

Yeah, what's annoying is that the Sigma Outlet is offering the refurbished Nikon mount version for $279. Why can't they sell the Pentax version for the same price?

Perhaps they only have a few and sell it for more because they can get more money for it?

Or maybe the Pentax users' glass needs more refurbishing ..... We insist on shooting outdoors, in a lion pit, whilst battling with the autons, etc.

Oh, BTW, I just ordered it. Probably should have spent the money on the Q but that decision would have led to more glass (the telephoto 2.8 zoom, at least).

If anyone deeply regrets missing this Sigma offer, the law of supply and demand will probably kick in again ...

You must have bought the only one - not showing as available now.
