For Sale: REDUCED! EXC Pentax DA lenses (10-17 fisheye, 17-70 f4, 50mm 1.4, 50-135mm f2.8)
Listed: 11-30-2017, 09:39 AM Total Price: 175 Currency: USD Item Location: Canada City or State: Ontario Shipping Destinations: Worldwide 

PRICES REDUCED! Let's get these to you before Christmas. Willing to ship worldwide to the right buyer.


After many years, trying now to simplify my kit. These are the first set of things to go. Inquire if interested in Pentax flash accessories.

All lenses in excellent condition (glass-wise, some minor scuffs for hoods and caps), with original caps included, except where noted. Original boxes (worn) and contents (e.g. bag, instructions) included but not pictured.

Prices in US$ but can accept CAD$ e-transfer if convenient for local buyers. Shipping extra. No feedback on here but free to look me up on the big auction site (same user name). Obviously, prices negotiable especially if you want more than one.


$250 Pentax-DA Fisheye 1:3.5-4.5 10-17mm
- Infrequently used, purchased new
- very good to excellent condition, optically perfect (just some dust on the photos below)
- fun and yet very technical lens (can be very good for extreme close up shots, which doesn't seem to get much notice)
- front metal cap has scratches, but fits as good as new on the metal body of the lens


$200 Pentax-DA 1:4 17-70mm
- excellent condition, purchased new, EXCEPT it has zoom creep: it's had it since purchased. I got it checked out before the warranty expired but it was deemed fine. I've learned to deal with it (sometimes I've used tape on the zoom barrel to stiffen it up a bit, but it doesn't really bother me most of the time). No SDM AF issues ever.
- workhorse, great for most common lengths, good close focus distance, convenient for flash work due to constant aperture
- Sharp, 3D looking images. Not DA* sharp, but nicer bokeh than the 16-50 (which I also had) or the 16-85 (a bit busy). Definitely underrated.
- Hoya Super HMC filter included


$175 Pentax FA 1:1.4 50mm
- excellent to like new condition, purchased new
- Hoya Super HMC filter included
- Fotga metal lens hood included (improves contrast wide open)


$475 Pentax DA* 1:2.8 50-135mm
- Excellent condition, purchased new, but with the following caveats
- Replaced SDM motor under warranty, replaced again not under warranty, AF working fine now, no issues.
- Dropped recently, one lens element was knocked out of alignment, so ended up repairing it at great cost... but this lens is worth it! Optically, this lens is like new!
- Haven't used it since the repair though, so it's in fantastic condition now (except for a strange minor mark along the focus distance window, not sure if they did that during the repair)
- No filter included (if I find the matching one I'll include it though, I must have taken it off when sending it in for repair)

Photos of this amazing lens. Box, papers, case included. I'll try to find the filter that I had used for this too.

Photos of this workhorse lens. No problems optically, but it does have zoom creep. Never a problem with SDM - focuses quietly and quickly. Couldn't find the original back cap, but a Tamron-Pentax one is included.

Fun and yet technically interesting fisheye lens. At 17mm, it's wider than my 14mm, and with defishing you can get great shots as well. Great at super close pseudo-macro shots as well, or for foreground/background separation for landscapes.
