FS: Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 EX DG& remote flash triggers

1) Ok, offering this here before putting it elsewhere so speak up if interested!

This is a great value for money lens that I am reluctant to sell but I'd rather convert the value into something like a Canon G11 compact. This is a constant f2.8 aperture lens that has been very lucky for me having won competitions or been placed several times with images using this. However, last summer I upgraded to the Nikon 28-70 f2.8 to go with my D700 at 3 times the price of this.

It works great on a DX camera, very sharp after about f4, and I used it regularly on my D300. On the D700 it performs very well and is a popular lens but, as you would expect, there is nothing to match the Nikon 24-70 or 28-70. For those you will pay 650 - 1000 secondhand.

Lens is in very good condition/excellent -. Optically excellent and has the Sigma rubberised finish. There is just a little dulling and buffering of this finish but it is very minor, looks good and comes with it's Sigma EX case and box.

If you are interested, it's 260 inc. special delivery.

I'm going to advertise it elsewhere in a day or so. Alternative is collect from Leicestershire.

2) Flash triggers: Also have a set of remote flash triggers made by ishoot/SLRkit. This is a hotshoe mounted trigger unit and 3 flash shoes. These are really for Canon with the dedicated shoes, but will trigger Nikon/generic flashes. You can have the whole lot sent at 22 recorded delivery.

Not messing around, these are the prices and competitive to anywhere else, better than Ebay, so let me know if you are interested.

Yop exlusive now over...will advertise elsewhere. I think this is a really good lens for both DX and FX Nikons in it's price bracket. You have to buy a Nikon pro lens to see a substantial difference.
