[SOLD] Pentax DA* 16-50mm f/2.8 lens [AUS] (Worldwide)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax DA* 16-50 f/2.8 lens [AUS]

Asking Price
US $590 or A $660

Item Location
Toowoomba, QLD, Australia

Item Description
This is the premium wide-to-normal zoom lens produced by Pentax.
Its IQ and build quality are unrivaled and this copy has met all my own expectations in this regard. I have shot numerous weddings and portraits with this lens and has given me nothing less than stellar results each time.
I am selling the lens only for the need of funds in the short term.

This lens has been cared for meticulously, never dropped, always softly placed on every surface and is in excellent condition apart from the lens hood: I had the misfortune of stepping on it whilst chasing after it as it flipped out of my hands on the roadside. As a result, the lens hood suffered significant splits which had to be superglued (albeit not so neatly). Nevertheless, I haven't ever felt the need to buy a new one since this hood fits on easily and does the job just as well. The only difference I feel with it is that it doesn't lock into place, however it fits so well onto the lens that it has never slipped off in any situation I've had.

The lens performs great and the SDM auto-focus mechanism has worked well at every instance. The glass is all clean and mark-free. The lens has always had a B+W UV filter fitted, which I will include in this sale (it has a minor ding on it which was there when I bought it, but the filter fits easily on and off the filter ring). The filter itself is worth $50.

Given the condition of the lens hood, which doesn't affect results, this lens is worth the investment for this price. PM me for any enquiries regarding this sale.

That only leaves you one more bump this week.

From the rules:

QuoteQuote:
You may bump your Marketplace threads after 12 hours if a price change has been made, or after 24 hours if not; do not bump more than three times a week. Do not bump to indicate a sale, edit the original post only.
