For sale is my
Sigma Mirror Telephoto 600mm f8 S/N 204216

This lens is in very good / Excellent condition throughout, the bodywork is nice and clean with some normal usage marks.
Optically the lens is free of dust, fungus or scratches and is in full working order.

The lens comes with the original front and rear lens caps, lens hood and Sigma carry case which includes a bag of silica to prevent moisture which can lead to fungus when kept in warm dark environments, and the original instruction booklet.

Mirror lenses have the distinct advantage of being extremely compact and light in comparison to their equivalent focal lengths of standard lens design.

Great for wildlife and sports shots especially when combined with Catch in Focus.

When used on any of the APSC reduced-sensor Pentax digital SLR's this lens will equate to a 900mm telephoto.

Manual focus only - works in Manual Exposure Mode with a fixed aperture of f8 so good light required, although with the K5, Kr & K30 higher ISO capabilities this lens should be usable in less light.

Weight - 850g
Length (min / max) - 130mm / 145mm
Rear Filter Size – 22.5mm
Minimum Focus (in close focus (macro) mode) - 2.0m (achieves 1:3)
Aperture Range - F8 fixed

Price £120 inc. RMSD

Lens arrived in Bonny Scotland, I feel the condition is probably better than described.

If I wasn't Scottish, I would probably feel guilty about getting such a GOOD deal !
