LensRentals.com through their sister company LensAuthority.com is selling their one copy of the Sigma 200-500mm f/2.8 EX DG APO for a steal of a price. For $14,995, you can get “SigZilla” at a fraction of the $26,000 retail price. The lens has only rented once, which I believe was a for a World Series a year or two ago.
Only rented once, extremely near new condition and functions perfectly. Comes with 400-1000mm extender, circular polarizer, strap, battery, charger, and gigantic Sigma hard case. This item is being sold AS-IS and DOES NOT include a warranty. No returns will be accepted due to the outrageous size and weight of the item.

But will I tuck it in my wife’s purse when we go to holiday parties, and take it on trips for snapshots? Sure.
