Sigma 120-400mm HSM non OS

In very good condition - optics clear and scratch free. Only signs of wear are to the foot of the tripod mount where the paint has flaked off. With both end caps and hood,plus padded Sigma lens pouch.

The lens has worked perfectly on my K-30 and before that on a K20D. There seems to be some sort of compatability problem with my K5-lls [firmware??] the lens will sometimes not lock focus. This is apparent as soon as the lens is mounted. Take it off and on a few times, clean contacts several times and it then works. Once it's working it stays working. Unsure if this is something to do with the latest Pentax af system or just my camera being it's usual quirky self! When fitted to my K-30 it worked all the time, first time, as it should.These are some crops from a few quick shots taken with the K-5lls this morning in both dull and sunny weather.

some more - using K-30 and K-5lls here

Looking for offers - the lens is in perfect working order apart from my problem with the K-5lls - I had zero problems using it on my K-30. Postage will be around 25 special delivery. PM if interested.

The later OS ones seems to go for around 375 second hand so I'd like to get around 275.

...but it's just going to sit there not being open to any offers!

Still open to offers - would rather sell it cheaply on here than pay ebay fees

Going on ebay tomorrow. Anyone want it for 175 plus postage?

If it were guaranteed to work on my K5ii I'd be in, but...

Go on then, I'll have it. Hopefully my K-5's are unaffected!

I must get around to creating some kind of lens slush fund....
