Selling two Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 OS Nikon mount lenses

Recently spotted a good deal on a known/main retailers website for these so bought a couple extra to sell on. (I won’t say how much I paid)

Sigma lenses have a 3 year warranty

Received them on  6th May – so 3 year warranty will be from that point.

UK stock. I will include printed receipt from the retailer.

 

Price each : £680 (usually ~ £830)

Listed on eBay at £720 but would prefer to avoid eBay fees  (To check feedback : ebay UK : dafeo).

Payment via PayPal

New Sigma lens can be connected to a Computer!

Bit of a geek-out post this!

Sigma have announced a new 35mm f/1.4 lens. Priced at $899

Nothing massively interesting there – although I would have hoped it would be cheaper – mind you – Nikon 35mm f/1.4G is £1299!

BUT the funky-doo-dah thing is that you can buy an optional part that allows you to connect the lens to a computer! Not to take photos of course ,as this would need an imaging chip – but to update the lens itself! i.e. adjust the internal lenses, updating firmware etc! Some cameras have micro-adjustment settings to fine-tune them per lens – but this means you can do it directly to the lens without including the camera – which I guess should mean that it will be optimized for all cameras. I didn’t even know lenses had firmware! Updating is done via the software Sigma optimization Pro.
