Posted my 50mm Sigma 1.4 on craigslist offering to trade or get cash. Some guy says he has a pentax k20d with a 55-200 lens he wants to trade. Would it be worth the trade on my part? Id probably end up selling the pentax and lens to get money towards a new lens for my 40D...

What do you guys think?

Apparently the lens and body are in good condition.

IMO, if cash is your main concen, it will be much easier to sell the lens as opposed to the camera.

I can't say Pentax is a good or bad brand but to be honest, I have never seen anyone shooting with one. I would have just sold your Sigma lens instead of going through the ole trading risk.

Yes, but by trading the sigma, ive gotten over 300+ dollars in equipment even though it's Pentax.. But when it DOES sell, ill be making a decent amount of money, and with that money, ill get a 20 2.8 canon lens, and a 430ex ii. The lens and flash for a sigma 50 1.4 i paid 380.00 for. :D
