Item for Sale
Pentax 08 Wide Zoom 3.8-5.9mm for Q series

Asking Price
800.00 AUD

Item Location
Melbourne (Australia)

Item Description
Bought from CRKennedy, it has seen little use on my Q-7. I would categorise it as Like New but put it down as Excellent because of the track marks on the electronic contacts. They were probably laid down on the first mounting, but there you go. The pictures show what I'm talking about.
It's a little gem for the Q series, super sharp, and has that magic quality that can't be put into words - did I hear someone say "Pixie Dust"?
It comes fully boxed with instructions and lens caps. I replaced the original terrible push-on rear cap with an aftermarket job which attaches with a satisfying bayonet action.
It also comes with a very nice aftermarket bayonet type lens hood. No one could afford the original one at the time
My pricing is in line with the low end of the market as far as I can tell, but I'm open to discussion.
I am looking to acquire the marvellous DA 150-450 zoom, so the current market says this has to go.
I would prefer pick up on acquisition, but that can be talked over.
