Re: 50 - 500mm Bigma

I'm interested as looked for one a while back but couldn't find one. I'm totally unsure of what to offer though. I'll have a look online and if I come up with something I'll message you. George

Re: 50 - 500mm Bigma

The four thirds version comes up only rarely on EBay so it's hard to get a good idea of price. I watched for well over a year for one at an affordable price, and then two came up at once; one was on for 385 "Buy it Now" and the other one for bidding but I got him to accept a lower offer than his competitor before anyone else had bid. If I remember correctly the Buy it Now one was compromised in some way (maybe owning up to internal dust or minor external damage or something, or perhaps a seller with a chequered history). Previously I'd seen them go for around 500 I think. It's a monster of a lens, but also unique, and pretty good quality when there's enough light. I think I got a bargain, though if I was richer I'd prefer a Panasonic 100-400.

Not sure if Wee Man is going to be happy with this. I plan to release mine at 415.00 Slightly Negotiable. Please remember I am only in Coventry on that date 6 April to 11 April 2019.

I have come and gone. Only wee man's unit up for sale

Re: 50 - 500mm Bigma

I don't belive it, I wait years for one of these to come along and then two come along at once. Unfortunately my kit fund is set for a new camera. Good luck with the sale Wee Man, sorry I can't help this time.

Re: 50 - 500mm Bigma

50 -500mm Bigma and 4/3 to u4/3 adaptor 500 plus postage.

4/3 to u4/3 adaptor only used a few times so almost as new 130 plus Postage

I have two MMF3 genuine Olympus adaptors one used with 50-500mm Sigma the other has been opened fitted on a 4/3 150mm macro Sigma used a few times and put back in its box, as I purchased an Olympus u4/3 60mm micro.

I sold the 4/3 150mm lens and the purchaser already had an adaptor.

Had interest in Bigma but no sale.

Can supply photos if email supplied I had difficulty posting photos at present.

Re: 50 - 500mm Bigma

This seems like a great deal and a good investment if you are into birding / wildlife. I was going to go for it myself but I was worried about the weight as I have recently had a major operation, so I let it pass. I have been very fortunate in the last 24hrs and stumbled across a good deal on a 300mm F4 pro , so I bit the bullet and went for it! Im hoping it will be ok for me weight wise ( i think its 400g less weight). Good luck with the sale , Im sure you will find a buyer pretty quickly as there are not too many of the Sigma's about on 4/3.
Kind Regards Tim
