Item Description
Pentax DA 18-250

Everything is original in the original box (both caps and hood). Registration card (not registered) and paperwork too.

A VERY sharp copy. The wide side performance is needless to say—the sharpness matches any expensive lens. Despite the common review that the lens is softer at the long end, I used my copy to shot an air show. I believe it’s fine if you can avoid f6.3. And the focus is always perfect on my K20D, at any aperture and distance settings.

Note: there is a small dust inside (not in the center) the lens. I found that the first week. Since it’s so sharp and focused so right that I did not want to exchange it. It does not affect the pictures at al. Other than that, I don’t see any cosmetic problems. It's babied very well and looks like new. Functionally, it’s flawless!

I will also include 2 filters: 62mm UV and 62mm GND, both from Sunpak, both perfect and in the original boxes.

Optional: I also bought a 62mm Hoya CPL for this lens. Only used once. Perfect and very effective (not like the cheap CPLs). You can have it for $20.

Bump.

Reduced to $369. Firm. Or I will happily keep it. I want fund for a fast long lens, but this one is too good to let go.

PMs have been replied. Nothing is finalized yet, so it's still available.

Reduced to $359. That include 2 filters, shipping and paypal fees!

About the zoom creep, yes there is some (probably typical for all copies). But there is a lock handy.
