As titled, in good overall condition. There is a minor mark on the side near the aperture ring and some very slight loss of the multi-coating on the edge of the front element. They're not obvious, and neither affects image quality. There are also some light scrapes/rubs on the hood, which have been there since I bought the lens 3 years ago. Looks like it might have been from rattling around the inside the previous owner's camera bag.

Otherwise, the glass is clear and bright and all functions as it should. I purchased it without a box, so it comes with just the Sigma lens case and hood.

Has had a B+W UV/Haze MRC filter on it for as long as I've owned it, which I will include with the lens.

Asking 95 including RMSD.

Pictures to follow when there's some sunshine!

What Macro ratio is it?

Hi mudge, it's 1:2 at 300mm and I think 1:3 at 200mm.

I had taken off the B+W filter to clean it and forgot to put it back on, so it's not shown, but still included. It's in perfect condition.

Any questions, just ask!

Hi Bently
Thanks for speedy reply. I already have a Tamron lens of the same spec. and a Sigma 100mm 1:1 lens.
I was after a 200 to 300 1:1 lens
Hope you are successful in selling your lens, as I'm sure it's a great bargain for someone!

No worries - thanks!

The B+W filter alone goes for 20-30.

Both photos are jpegs straight from the camera, just cropped and given positive exposure compensation.

An early bank holiday bump and a price drop to 85 shipped for both the lens and the B+W filter.

That is a superb price for the DG Apo version. But just spent my money on another lens.

Thanks guys - it's been an excellent performer but I really don't use it often enough to keep it.

Once upon a time I compared it against the Pentax 100-300 and the Tamron 70-300mm non-OS and found it to be the best by a whisker, though they each had their pros and cons.
