Pentax SMC KA28-135 f4

I have a Super Program with a KA 28-135 f4 MF zoom. I want to sell them to fund my entry into the dSLR world. Now, I know the Super Program probably will not get me much coins, but what about the 28-135 ? Does anyone have any idea how much this would fetch ? It is in excellent condition, has always had a UV filter in front. I have no idea how much to set the price for this lens.

Thanks for any help !

Hello...since you're new here...were you aware of the Lens Database on this site? It's where people can post reviews of lenses and one of the items that a reviewer can enter is how much they paid. It's a useful reference to find out an average price for something. I wouldn't take it as gospel...because the person who found something in a box at an estate sale for $10 definitely offsets someone paying $300 for the same lens. I generally look at the individual prices and also see if there's any closed listings on ebay to get an idea what I should pay for, or sell something for.

If you look at the top menu you'll see 'lenses' and can select Pentax Lens Reviews. Under the 'A Series Zooms', I found your lens here:

Pentax-A 28-135mm F4 Reviews - A Series Zooms - Pentax Lens Reviews & Pentax Lens Database

Hope this helps!

I'll take a look at the thread you indicated.
There are so much info here that I haven't had a chance to explore everything as yet.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction !
