FOr sale is my Sigma 180mm f/3.5 DG EX macro lens, it is boxed and comes in it's case along with the tripod collar, hood and caps. The lens is in excellent condition and is very sought after, it's probably my favourite lens of all time for Pentax.

695 incl UK postage.

Pics to follow but some taken with the lens.

Was feeling quite relaxed after a long hard day then this pops up and now I've wet myself

Do you take credit or need a slave perhaps

What you need are lenses, more lenses, bigger lenses, better lenses, faster lenses, and when you have these, your pictures will be perfect!

You wouldn't want it ... it's too much lens for just one person

Just to add, after looking around for another lens box it seems the one for this is missing atm although I still have the case. Therefore unless I can find it before hand (not that I'm expecting this to sell quickly) the sale is munus the box although I do have a Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 box I can put it in which is roughly the same size.

Morning Mike. Would you know how the IQ of this lens compares against a Pentax 100 macro + 1.4x converter combo please?

Hi John,

I also have the 100mm WR macro and 1.4x and it's a useful combination but the Sigma renders so much better IMO. The only reason I'm selling it is because I recently bought one for my Canon system and I use that a lot more for macro because it's easier with an EVF.

Have an offer for 700 on Ebay for it ... really don't know if I should sell though.

Its rarity alone demands a higher price. If you don't need to sell it then quite simply don't. If you do, you will probably regret it. There's a time to buy and a time to sell and a time to bide your time
