Why am I selling? I am moving to full frame and it will not work with my camera. It has been a wonderful, sharp, and versatile lens. The only issue I have had with it is the silly little "window" pentax put into the lens hood. The plastic piece fell down a mountain the first time I used it. It's useless anyway and usually points towards the bottom. You can get a new hood on ebay for $5 so I'll deduct that if its a real problem.
Thanks for looking. Here are some pictures taken with this lens. Obviously, it is also a great portrait lens!
