Not sure myself on the quality of Wex refurbs, or indeed if they are the ones refurbing them, but a superb deal either way over the new price.

You'd struggle to get a second hand one this cheap. Not a lens for everyone obviously but for those that may be considering the leap to super telezoom territory.

The Sigma 120-300mm f2.8 EX DG OS HSM lens is a large aperture telephoto zoom lens featuring Sigma's optical Stabilisation system and weather-resistant construction. One SLD and Two FLD glass elements are used for maximum correction of chromatic aberrations, while the Super Multi-Layer lens coating reduces flare and ghosting.

The improved optical design of the Sigma 120-300mm lens incorporates an inner focusing and inner zooming system to ensure sharp images throughout the entire zoom range and ensures ultra-high resolution comparable to a fixed focal length lens. The Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) ensures quiet and high speed AF and allows full-time manual focus override. The rounded 9 blade diaphragm creates an attractive blur to the out of focus areas of the image. The Optical Stabilisation of the Sigma 120-300mm f2.8 EX DG OS HSM lens makes it possible to use shutter speeds approximately 4 stops slower than would otherwise be possible and enables hand held tele-photography.

This is a fantastic lens - used to have it before I needed the £££ for the 70-200 I think it was
And then just ran out of money altogether :- )
Good price!

Pointless comment coming up!

Not really a camera person so I don't know alot about lenses. But £1000 for a second hand lens seems alot I only got a crappy £150 camera and thought that looks good!

Wonder what picture coming from this looks like? I bet this thing is on the wishlist for most photo people X)

Yep, sorry folks it seems to have reverted to the old price now. Mods please expire.

A very good price for a reconditioned lens of this calibre, it is a superb lens that I have rented out a couple of times - I wouldn't get constant use out of it to justify the price tag, but at half price it was tempting!
