Not sure if you saw this, I am selling a Sigma 105 F2.8 for Nikon.

I am selling this because I just don't use it anymore. It is a great lens for macro, portraits. Lens is in great condition, minimal signs of wear. I have always had lens caps on when not on camera.
I am asking $375 plus shipping to continental USA. Photos on request.

Designed for use with full frame digital SLR cameras. May also be used with smaller APS-c size sensors with a corresponding effective increase in focal length to about 150mm with most cameras
Focuses down to 1:1 magnification ratio at its closest working distance of 12.3 inches
A hood adapter, (not detachable) lens hood, front & rear lens caps are included with the lens

You're a tad over priced, f/1.8D's are running $350 or less.


Are you interested in the lens? I would be willing to sell it for $350, plus shipping costs.

I am trying to lighten my load of Nikon Lenses. I haven't used this one in a really long time. My go to lens is the Nikon 24-70 f2.8. This is my reason for selling it. It has always had a Tiffen uv filter. Come with both caps and a metal hood. I am asking $350 plus shipping costs. Photos on request.

****The Nikon 85mm f/1.8 AF and AF-D have superb optical and mechanical quality. They have been among Nikon's most popular lenses for many decades, and rightfully so.
They have superb performance, especially for use on the 36 MP Nikon D800.

I prefer this original lens to 2012's new plastic made-in-China G version. This original lens offers a better 9-bladed diaphragm, superior mechanical quality that will last a lifetime, isn't gelded so it works on every camera, has a hard infinity-focus stop, metal filter threads, faster autofocus and smaller size than the new G 85/1.8.****

You might also contact local camera stores, other online sites that sell gear and of course B & H.

A friend had a backpack with all his gear stolen. He contacted B&H, Adorama, Police. A few days later someone tried to sell the equipment to B&H, they called the police and the guy was arrested. My friend got all his gear back.

I have 2 Nikon, full frame and cropped, with many lenses. I also have 2 Sony's a full frame and cropped. I just got back from Cuba, where I only took my Sony's. I am so happy with the images, 95% were handheld and very sharp. I walked around for hours with the 2 cameras hanging off my shoulders without any discomfort.

I am getting ready to sell off my Nikon lenses. I have to many and just don't use them much.
I am selling a Nikon 85 F1.8 and a Sigma EX 105 f2.8. Message me if interested in either of these lenses.

Loved watching this video. If you love birding in Central park, come on out to Long Island where the chickadees, titmouse & downly woodpecker will eat out of your hand!!!

I took this image of my hand feeding the birds, with my little Sony A6500 with a Sony 16-70 f4 lens.

Just an fyi...if they tell you, that you must check your camera bag at the gate...tell them you have lithium batteries that can't go under the plane!
I also travel a lot by plane. I put as much as I can carry in my backpack. Then I use a small rolling carry on, with my lenses wrapped in the lens wraps. I have even used bubble wrap. I have never had a problem. I always take the lenses off the 2 bodies, just in case of severe movement in the plane.

I have a Rokinon 14 mm lens for my full frame Nikon. It was suggested to me by Gabe Bidderman, works at B&H and is one of the guys that runs the National Parks at night workshops.

They are not expensive, great lenses. I also have a Rokinon fisheye for my Sony

I do quite a bit of birding on Long Island. There are many here that do not want to post where the birds are...snowy owl, peregrine falcon, owls. People are NOT respectful of the wildlife and cause such stress on the birds & other wildlife. They want to get the birds in flight and will cause the bird to fly just to get away from some aggressive photographer.

A few years back, there was a family of foxes. People were feeding them to bring them to a better location to photograph. It go so bad that as soon as a car pulled into the adjoining parking lot, the foxes would go right up to the cars! One of the young kits ended up getting killed.
There were people feeding the deer, bread & cereal. Their bodies cannot handle that and it killed a half dozen deer.

So please be respectful of the wildlife. Check out the guidelines by Audubon.org guide to ethical bird photography.

I am selling it because of the weight. I am sure it will be much more than the Tamron lens.

It can definitely be used on a dx camera. I have used it on both. It is a very heavy lens, almost 3 lbs. I don't know how much the Tamron lens weighs but since this is a 2.8 lens it is very good glass and I am sure it is heavier.
