This lens for sale at 260 but there are complications. I am only in London on the 10th and 11th of June for delivery.
I am from Stellenbosch and find the interest in the lens here very poor and need to sell after buying a F*300 on this forum 3 mnths ago.
Many photos available and the lens is in excellent condition. Pm me if we can work something out.
Thks,
George.

I live in London and could certainly be tempted - I imagine you'd want to meet up and do the trade in person?

Do you have any sample shots taken with the lens?

Yes, many. Send me an email gar-at-sun.ac.za and I'll send you as many as you can handle.

T, no I can leave the lens with a friend that works opposite the Tate Modern but I would need payment beforehand or what do you suggest?

Hi George
Hopefully you understand but I'd much rather do some kind of cash trade in person rather than payment in advance due to your being a new seller.

If you would be willing for your friend to act as a middleman and receive payment then that would also be fine with me.

Thanks
Tim

Tim,
Mmmmm....I understand although I am a reputable seller here in South Africa.
I don't think I can expect her to do further dealings if you don't take the lens.
I have bought many lenses from the USA forum and this forum and never been disappointed (actually the Sigma was bought from a member in Australia and is in equal spotless condition.)

Its a case of rather not bringing the lens with me if there's a chance of it not being sold.
I can photograph it from all angles etc but I think that's the best I can do.

Hi George

If the lens is in good working condition, with no damage and no obvious defects then it is safe to say that I would buy the lens - my history as a buyer and seller is clear to see here and I've never wasted anyone's time.

If you'd prefer to arrange payment in advance etc I'm afraid it's all getting a bit complicated and risky for me - I wish you good luck with the sale.

Thanks
Tim

Just to say that George bought an F* 300 off me a while ago and was a pleasure to deal with.

I misjudged the paypal fee involved and he very generously made up the difference.
