I've found this deal on Craigslist.

Quote from seller:

Here I am selling my like new Sigma 30mm f 1.4 EX DC HSM with 3 filters. A UV filter, a circular polorizer filter, and a 1.8 neutral density x64 filter (6-stops). All B+W brand. From the pictures my nd filter doesn't look like that. I need to use my lens marker to rid my fingerprints. You can't beat this price. I'm selling because i'm trying to purchase another lens. Email for questions

You can read more about the lens and filters here

I think I'm gonna jump into the deal?


Edit: Price is $400.

It's either a deal or a SPAM lure... I've found that the latter is becoming quite popular more and more on Craigslist. Be careful and use a separate junk email account with those. I have one especially for CL.

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.

Sorry about the missing price. The price listed is $400 for everything. It's kinda too good to be true since these filter cost over $200 already?

The seller just gave me a call. I asked him some questions about the lens. He bought the lens from KEH, and he might be able to call them to get the receipt. He also mentioned that he bought the lens a year and half ago, so the lens itself might be the old finish?

Yep! If you don't mind the massive vignetting. Nevertheless, it's a heck of deal if it's in good condition and you have a crop body. Very nice lens indeed. It's one of the reasons I haven't switched to the 28 f/1.8 USM even with a FF/crop.


FS: Nothing for now.
