This lens is absolutely pristine and "LIKE NEW" in every respects. I bought it less than a year ago (and paid $1699 on Amazon.com) and used it only once at an eagle festival. It has sat in its case in a "smoke free" home since that time. NO COSMETIC DEFECTS AT ALL! No dust or imperfections of any sort. Included are all the original items, padded case, front/rear caps, hood, APS-C hood extender, 95mm-86mm filter step down ring, documentation, strap, and warranty card,etc. I AM ALSO INCLUDING A SIGMA EX DG Multi-coated 95mm UV FILTER ($100 value). Note: The last two lens pics show the APS-C hood extender installed.

Price: $1300.00, which includes free shipping (in USA 48 states only) and pay pal fee's. I have sold and bought many lenses, camera's and camera equipment on this forum and have a 100% ebay seller rating (ebay ID: vpasq). Please email me if you have any further questions.

Here is a some information from Sigma on this superb lens:

Lens info:
Sigma’s APO 50-500mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM is an advanced optical design of this 10x power high-performance zoom lens that covers the standard-to-super-telephoto range, now with the added advantage of Sigma’s own Optical Stabilization which offers the use of shutter speeds approximately 4 stops slower than would otherwise be possible.
For many photographers, having an “all-in-one” lens is an absolute dream. Especially for nature photographers, the idea of a lens suitable for landscape photography at the short end of the zoom range, while still having enough reach for wildlife is a great option. Add to that, the ability to close focus on small objects in the field such as flowers and it’s the perfect backpackers’ lens. Four SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements provide optimum color correction & sharpness throughout the entire zoom range and Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting and assures high image quality throughout the entire zoom range. With no need to change lenses, there is less chance of dirt or moisture entering the camera and fouling the imaging sensor.
The filter size of this lens is diameter 95mm and the lens is supplied with a step down ring enabling digital cameras with an APS-c size image sensor to use an diameter 86mm filter.
