This was bought from a forum member about 4yrs ago, but hasnít seen a lot of sues since then because itís heavy (not surprisingly!) and I damaged my right knee about then Ė and that was on top of the bad back Iíve had for decades! So, itís only been used at a few airshows and the occasional attempts at BIF in and around the back garden. It was given a full check over by Sigma Imaging UK at Welwyn in March 2015 and no adjustments etc. were found necessary. It is very clean both outside and internally (I can't see any internal dust or fungus) .

Itís comes with :
- Original front and rear caps, and, of course, hood
- a Hoya HMC 86mm UV filter (which came to me with the lens
- The Sigma combined grip and tripod mount (to which I usually attach a padded Arca-compatible plate to make hand-holding more comfortable Ė and that does make a difference!)
- The original Sigma shoulder bag is in VGC
- The original box in which it came to me Ė thatís marked as ď150-500 APO DG OSĒ with no mention of ďHSMĒ, but, as you can see from one of the images, the lens itself is definitely marked as being the HSM version!

Price £400 OVNO + P&P = which will probably be around £20 RMSD, but collection from Hayes, W. London would be preferred! Payment by PayPal Gift, Bank Transfer or cash on collection













K-3 II, K-3 and K-30 (now running the Hacked K-50 f/w, so it thinks it is one of those ), & some Sigma and Pentax lenses (and a lot of old 35mm gear!) - and now a K-70 from SRS

Bump, Bump!!!

The lens is still on ebay and there have been some half-decent bids (and others from France & Russia, so that shows how "rare" it is!) but there are still a couple of days to go before the bidding deadline.

So, if anyone on this forum goes there and makes the winning bid, then I'll (privately!) refund the £20 p&p cost to them as I would rather prefer it went to someone who will make better use of it than I can (since the last "bump", I've been diagnosed as having a left knee with a seeming unusual and aggressive form of arthritis that's only going to get worse, and so I certainly won't ever be able to use anything as heavy in the future )

The lens is here, so please take a look

Pretty much the final "Bump" as someone is definitely going to get the Sigma on evilbay tomorrow - so if you are still thinking of buying it then you will need to be "quick"
Or, even if you don't want it, just make a silly bid, to prompt the 30-odd "watchers" to start upping the ante (I need the money)!

Sold on evilbay - to a lady in Russia (although it will be going to a friend somewhere else in the UK before as I made it clear that I would not be shipping outside the UK!)

Many thanks - and so, which one of the "cryptically" named bidders were you ?

Thanks for all the "help" in bumping up the selling price on evilbay, but I wonder if anyone here actually wanted to buy it (if so, you should have contacted me and made a "decent" offer )?

I definitely did want to buy it, but could only afford up to £350 - I naively thought once it was listed on ebay that you were obliged to sell it through them

Sorry about that - but it was in the Classifieds here for a couple of weeks before it went onto evilbay - so there was a an opportunity for you during that period.

Unfortunately I didn't have enough money saved up until yesterday. C'est la vie
