$275 "Buy It Now" DA* 50-135 on ebay (broken AF)

Curious if anyone here is watching this DA*50-135 with AF issue on ebay: Pentax SMC Da 1 2 8 50 135mm Ed If SDM Lens Has AF Issues | eBay
More likely an SDM issue. If it didn't lock the MF mechanism and the lens can be "hacked" for screw-drive AF, would this be worth it for $275?

Exactly who are ELMElectronics2010? They have a LOT of non-functional SDM lenses for sale and they are in Colorado.

Hope you enjoy the lens.

It wasn't me, honestly. I wish! The seller is in Denver - so as Pentax HQ. I wonder if these are warranty replacements that somehow got routed here for whatever reason. Seller had more than just (broken) DA*. He/She was selling K-x, K-30 with issues at around $60 each.

Also had a bunch of WG2&3 models "for parts" in addition to the lot for $2500. Might be someone that bought them from PentaxHQ. I wonder if the screwdrive in each of them works?

bummer. I was seriously going to buy that 50-135 just because it was cheap and the listing stated the glass was fine just manual focus only. Went from one PC to another to sign in and gone haha

Whomever won the bid, happy photographing!!

Sent them a message suggesting they consider breaking the collection apart into individual lens sales. Waiting to see what they say.

I saw that $275 "Buy Now" posting since 7AM this morning. I think I may have "helped" him by putting it here on the forum. Keep an eye on the seller because that Lot of 8 DA* wasn't there this afternoon so he just posted it. He should put them here on marketplace.

Looks like seller accepted best offer - they're gone. (No, it wasn't me)
Expect to see hacked DA* lenses here on the marketplace soon...
