"Rare Sigma 100-300 f4 EX HSM lens For Sale...."
Wed 18-Jul-12 02:25 AM by Lunastar


I'm selling my beloved Sigma 100-300 f4 EX HSM lens to offset my purchase of a Nikkor 200-400/4. I have made many sharp images with this lens of various wildlife. The lens is nearly identical in sharpness to my 300 AF-S Nikon f4 that is difficult to tell which images were captured with which lens! This lens received Photozone's "Highly Recommended" rating while Sigma was still producing them. The sharpness is evident by the many images I have published with it.

This lens also sports HSM which is lightning fast and the EX professional grade Sigma mark. The lens is in excellent condition including glass, exterior and case. Buyer will receive the lens packaged in the original box.

I'm asking 1000.00 for this little beast plus 25.00 shipping. I'll accept Paypal or cash at a meet up if you are close to southern MN/Twin cities area.

Many of my website waterfowl and deer images were made with this lens. Here's a couple sample to view it's sharpness and contrast.

Thanks! PM me if seriously interested.

This lens was supposed to be priced at 900.00 not 1,000.00 like my 300/4 AF-S. All other info applies. BTW, I did a search and found 2 new ones still in stock and priced at 1370.00!

BUMP for a great lens. I regret getting rid of mine some years back... Not a good time for me to buy either. Good luck with selling it...

I shoot this lens as well both and without a 1.4 TC. It takes great pictures and is probably the best value for a lens in this zoom range.

Thanks, guys! If it weren't for my new 200-400/4 I'd keep this lens forever-I have posted images comparing it to the 300/4 Nikkor and the Siggy's sharpness is just as good. It's also good enough that many of the images in my upcoming whitetail deer rut photo essay were captured with it.

Glad to do it. While the lens is excellent in its own right, Sigma also did an excellent job pricing it.

Mark,

The lens arrived today and it is exactly as you advertised....maybe a bit better actually.

Perfectly packed and I have already taken about 50 pix. Great quality results!

To all: If Mark has anything for sale in the future, buy with HIGH confidence. He takes great care and concern for his equipment.

Blake
