    Default FS: Sigma 135-400mm f/4.5-5.6 ASP AF APO 4/3 Mount

    Well, since picking up the 7-14mm, I promised my wife that I would sell off some gear that I don't use much. I was originally going to sell the 8mm FE, but I just love that lens too much to let go of it. Instead, I'm letting go a barely used Sigma 135-400mm f/4.5-5.6 zoom lens. I bought this used off of this forum last year from Rat Racer...he had only used it a handful of times, just like myself. I thought i would use it more, but that was before I picked up the 50-200 SWD and EC-14 combo. Originally, I think he paid 900+ for it new, I bought it for $550, and will sell it for $500. I added a 77mm B&W UV filter, and an arca-swiss mount to the tripod ring. It's a great copy, and I consider it a poor man's Bigma, if coupled with an EC-14.One of my favorite shots of the moon was taken with that combo. One thing for sure, is that you need to stop it down a bit when shooting, otherwise it's a tad soft wide open. If you would like to see shots of the glass elements I can do that upon request, but it is virtually spotless. Since joining, I've only ever seen this one sold on the forum, so they don't come along often. If the weather agrees in the next couple of days, I'll mount this again on my E-5 and take some test shots across the range.

    $360 (this is crazy low, but I just don't use this lens since getting the 50-200/EC-14),
    UPDATE FREE SHIPPING to within CONT US, reduced price. Paypal only, prefer gift method.
    No box (can't seem to locate it, we're in the midst of moving, I know I have it but can't locate it)
    carrying case included, but has a broken strap attachment.

    First, the control shots, to show the distance this lens can cover. 14mm (shot with the 7-14mm)

    All photos uncropped and just the basic enhancements in Lightroom, unfortunately, it was a little humid and hazy to day, but this should give you a general idea.

    The above link goes to the full res test shots above on my smugmug site. I believe the picture of the lens is the first shot in the gallery.

    UPDATE:
    I'll absorb the shipping cost to CON US, which should be around $20 USPS Priority. I would also consider trades on other 4/3 gear that I don't already own.

    Wow. I thought I was the only guy who bought one of those in 4/3rds.

    Soon after getting mine I lucked out and was able to snag a Bigma, so the 135-400 got relegated to backup status, but the few times I've used it, I've been very pleased with the results. It really is a solid lens for the money.

    I know what you mean...even the local camera shop owner (who is an authorized olympus dealer) raised an eyebrow when he saw that in my bag.

    I pm'd the other person that wanted it, but if he passes, I'm sure we could work something out

    Hello Clint:

    I'm considering this lens would be great on an Olympus E-1 set-up.

    I have Sony NEX gear for possible trades if interested?

    Maybe you'd like to try out the world of Sony mirrorless cameras.?

    Sony NEX-7 camera, (need cash to me), Carl Zeiss (CZ) 24mm, f/1.8 NEX E-mount lenses,
    and more NEX E-mount lenses.

    Please let me know your thoughts on this possibility of trades?

    Thanks,

    Have a nice day...

    Ed.





    is possibl

    Ed,
    unfortunately, I'm not in the market for a Sony nex. Besides I think my wife would kill me for investing into another camera system.

    Free shipping to US, but I will entertain the idea of shipping overseas at the buyers cost.

    Now accepting trades on u4/3 gear too (lenses, adapters, and viewfinders). Lowered price again.
