Having disposed of my K5 and Q I now have no more Pentax cameras until the price of the K5IIs drops to a price I want to pay (or Pentax bring out a FF camera) ! Therefore I am disposing of most of my remaining lenses (keeping 5 though) and in fact sold 6 lenses yesterday to add to the other 15 I've sold already. However I know that people in PU are often looking out for this lens so I thought I'd offer it there rather than dispose of it over here. I'm not prepared to take a hit on it though so no lo-ball offers which will be ignored.

Note that I live in Shanghai so that the DHL/UPS whatever cost must be added (I guess around US$50 but have to confirm the price if there is any interest) and I can describe the lens on the Customs Dec. as NCV (no commercial value) or with a nominal value or returned after repair. China Post can be unpredictable (but reliable) and can take a week or a month, so I'm ignoring that cheaper post option.

This lens has been a workhorse for me over the past two years, it has gone everywhere with me and shot everything from Street to Rugby. Fast, near silent, HSM AF, good low light capability via the bright f2.8, IMHO a better lens than Pentax' 50-135 but it doesn't have WR. And of course Sigma no longer make this in PK mount so there are very limited quantities available that go quickly.

Condition.
Glass : A One slight mark, that may be coating only, however I didn't even notice it until yesterday - has no effect at all on photographs. You do have to look hard to find it - I may even be unable to photograph it !
Body : A I can find one slight mark on the rubber grip if I look hard ! Virtually undetectable.
Hood : B shows a number of marks, but there are no cracks, and is sometimes a right %&$*& to get off as it sticks and needs some elbow grease !

Includes Sigma caps (top & bottom). No Sigma padded bag unless I happen to find it, it seems to have grown legs. Includes original box and paperwork (in English).

I can post photos later and will throw in some goodies too, a Spiderpod and other Pentax bits and pieces (copy IR remote and things like that) I no longer use and are worthless to me but would bump the value considerably for the right person.

If you wanted it professionally serviced before dispatch then add GBP25 to your offer. Servicing is very professional and relatively cheap over here.

I'm asking for offers (via PM) rather than state a price because if the offer (and P&P) doesn't meet the price I can get here then of course there is no point. If there is any one interested just let me know - I'll leave this up for a week or two before selling the lens here. I have bought and sold lenses on both PU and Pentax Forums and have only positive feedback.

N.B. I also have a Tamron 1.4X Pz-AF MC4 ( the good one !) for sale. Same as above applies. In As New condition. Perfect in fact. Boxed. Open to Offers.

The lens arrived safe and sound earlier today. The shipment was practically immediate after the payment was cleared. The delay (almost five days) was caused by the Finnish customs office, so nothing to blame on the seller.

Everything was as described, and the things were well packed. Good seller and I'm happy to deal with Kevin again anytime!
