    Here presented for sale, a nice SIGMA DP2S kit, comprising the following items:

    1x SIGMA DP2S Camera

    I'm not going to give the spec - if you're reading this, you'll know what a DP2s is, and what it can do.
    If you do want to see sample shots from this particular camera, please have a look at my Flickr "Sigma" set:
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157627880933339/

    The camera itself has the tiniest of scuffs and scratches here and there, the most noticeable being on the front by the "Foveon" logo.
    (You can just make this out in the photographs.)

    The LCD has had a heavy-duty protector on it since new, and you will see in the photograph that this is peeling away from the LCD in
    the bottom right-hand corner.
    The screen beneath remains unmarked, including the peeling corner, but you will probably want to put on a new protector.

    The lens front element is perfect and unmarked.

    There does not seem any way to ascertain the number of shutter actuations or power-cycles on these camera.
    I have about 3,000 Sigma shots in my LR catalogues since 2011, and as I rarely delete anything, that's probably close to the number of actuations.
    This camera was checked after purchase at SIGMA Japan, and met factory specification in all aspects.
    I have never experienced a problem with it.

    It comes with the usual complement of DP-series Kraftwerk-style robo-noises as the lens starts up and focuses. It would not be a DP without them.

    As you can see, it has a nice leather wrist strap by Gordy Coale - http://www.gordyscamerastraps.com/ - which is, of course, included in the sale.

    1x Lens Cap

    Lightly marked

    1x HC-11 Hard Leather Case for camera

    I have only ever used the bottom half of this, and it shows very slight signs of wear. The top half is pristine.

    1x HA-21 Lens Hood Adapter

    Slightly marked

    2x Li-ion Battery BP-31
    1x Li-ion Battery Samsung SLB-1237 (BP-31 equivalent)
    1x Battery Charger BC-31
    1x Battery Charger Cable (with UK 3-pin plug)
    1x Hot Shoe Cover
    1x Soft Case
    1x Strap
    1x USB Cable
    1x Audio Video Cable
    1x SIGMA Photo Pro CD v.4.2
    1x User's Manual (English version)

    All three batteries charge fully and hold their charges.
    The BC-31 charger unit itself is a little scuffed.

    The hot-shoe cover, soft case, strap and cables have never been used.
    There are much newer versions of the software which can be downloaded from SIGMA

    No SD card is included, you'll need to supply your own!

    Reason for sale:

    My photographic interests have changed since I bought this, and I find myself never using it.
    There are less than 150 shots in my 2013 catalogue from this camera.
    It seems a shame that such a remarkable photographic tool should remain neglected, and I need cash
    to fund the restoration of my recently acquired Nikon F2.


    <del>£245 for the lot, inclusive of UK delivery via Royal Mail Special Delivery</del>
    Overseas delivery: PM me to discuss
    £200 for the lot, inclusive of UK delivery via Royal Mail Special Delivery</del>
    Overseas delivery: PM me to discuss


    Please don't PM me asking me for a price for just (e.g.) the VF-21.
    I will only split the lot if someone wants only the VF-21 AND someone else wants everything but the VF-21, for instance

    Delivery & Payment.

    I would prefer to sell this within the UK, for the sake of speed and convenience.
    Payment is easiest via the evil PayPal, but for a SC "regular", cash or cheque may also be negotiated.

    If you have some nice Nikon mount (non-AF, AI/Non-AI) glass in 28mm or 35mm or 50mm, I might consider a trade. PM me if so.

    I will consider overseas sales, but please be aware that delivery costs for tracked international consignments may make the purchase uneconomic for you. PM me to discuss.

    Payment accepted
    • Regular PayPal (fee included in price)
    Shipping method
    UK: Royal Mail Special Delivery

    Shipping charge
    UK shipping: included
    International shipping: tba

    A bump and a significant price reduction:

    £200 for the lot, inclusive of UK delivery via Royal Mail Special Delivery

    (Overseas delivery: PM me to discuss)

    It really is a bargain.

    If you only want the VF-21, you could buy the whole kit and resell the camera yourself ...

    Slightly amazed that no-one wants a camera that makes most other compacts look stooopid (in terms of the hallowed "IQ"), for almost no money ...

    I'll leave it here for another 24 hours and then off to eBay it goes.
