I am offering for sale my spare (yes I have 2) Sigma 100-300 F4. No point it sitting in a box not being used.

It is the last model made (tell by the zoom/focus grips as they changed the style) and I think you will find it hard to find a better copy in Pentax fit. (you will find it hard to find a pentax fit version based on my previous experience)

This is a cracking lens, very fast autofocus, sharp and works very well on the K3 and K1 which is what I predominately use my other copy on for motorsport.

Comes boxed with everything you'd expect from a very lightly used lens. I can see one tiny fibre fleck in the lens, this was there when I bought it and has no effect on the image quality.

Few pictures :































Price 650 inc postage

Regards

George

Lens arrived safely and promptly on Monday, what a cracking Lens...
I'd say in "as new" condition..

a big thanks to George for that.... I'd had one before but stupidly sold it... now I have another one (which I wont let go)

Very Best Regards

Bought my "V2" around 10 yrs ago, and - like you - it'll be going "nowhere" until I'm "somewhere else"

BTW: Yesterday, I did a fairly quick "Front/Back focus" check,using a steel rule 10m down the garden, with that Sigma 100-300 F4, "first version" Sigma F2.8 70-200 and the 55-300 PLM on the K-3, K-3 II and the K-70 (all with the very latest f/w, and with the lenses at their maximum zoom lengths),and the results were "interesting" -
- All of them needed some fairly substantial AF adjustments with both Sigma lenses
- IIRC, all but the K-70 needed some AF adjustments with the PLM, which is now at "0" adjustment.
- The PLM + Pentax 1.4x HD WR TC on the K-70 (thus effectively 420mm) produced images that were only marginally less sharp than the 100-300 - so I wonder what that lens would produce on the K-3 III, if and when I can find a "financially prudent" reason to buy one??
K-3 II, K-3 and a K-70 from SRS (having now relegated the K-30 /"K-50" to a backup body), & some Sigma and Pentax lenses (and a lot of old 35mm gear!)
