Item Description
I am selling my DA 10-17 Fisheye lens. This lens is about 5 years old, and I have used it a bunch. The biggest flaw with the lens is that the bottom petal of the built-in lens hood is bent. This happened relatively soon after I bought it. Over the years I have not noticed any effect on the image quality -- even at 10mm. The lens cap, which is felt lined and slides on, still fits fine. And since the lens does not take filters, there is really no other issue from an image quality/operational standpoint.

Other than that, the lens is in good shape. Some minor wear here and there, and a scuffed-up lens cap. Optically the lens is perfect -- no scratches or dust (what dust you might see in the pics is on the outside) -- which is really a testament to the SMC/SP coating. Mechanically the lens works perfectly.

So overall the lens is in excellent shape from an image quality/operational standpoint. It just would not look pretty sitting in your trophy case -- that's all.

$360 shipped in USA via USPS - lowered price.

Here is a link to a photo-album of the lens. Hopefully you can see the extent of the bent hood:

Somebody should get this. Even a missing petal (on the bottom) should have no impact on IQ.
