FS: Sigma 150-500 APO HSM


Link Posted 03/04/2014 - 16:21
Ordered from SRS on 14th January this year, I've not been able to get along with the weight of the lens and have 'upgraded' to a DA*300mm.

The Lens is complete with the Hood, Padded Sigma case and box, I'll also throw in the 86mm Kood UV filter I bought for it.
I'm looking for 480 including RMSD. Bank Transfer preferred. The lens will be offered for sale elsewhere.

I've managed to get some small scratches on the leading edge of the hood, they don't affect the lens at all but here's a picture for the sake of clarity.

Links to full size images, be warned they're 4mb to 5 mb each.

Gorgeous pictures of the lens itself but do you have any pictures the lens itself has taken? I'm interested but to properly assess its desirability I'd like a tad more information. So if you were to post some sample pictures could I ask for as much information as possible, for example whether hand held, ISO used, OS switched on or not. This may seem a lot to ask for but if it were possible I would be very appreciative of your efforts.

As an aside , would SRS's 3 year warranty be transferable?

Can do, there's a couple here to be going on with.

These were taken with a monopod with no OS or in camera shake reduction.

230mm f9 iso 400 1/800th Hand held with OS probably off since I've tended not to use it

Full size image, a little under 17mb

Probably hand held at 150mm 1/320th iso 100 again full size at 8.5mb

Obviously the lens handles static subjects much better.

It occurs to me (thanks guys) that with the Sigma cashback offer currently on, the cost of a 'new' one is a bit close to this, so I'm going to drop my price by 40 to 440 still inc RMSD to UK.
