[SOLD] Trade my 16-45, 55-300, 18-55wr for 18-135 (US/CAN) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Trade my 16-45, 55-300, 18-55wr for 18-135

Asking Price
prefer trade

Item Location
Oregon USA

Item Description
It's time: I seek an 18-135 from a new K-5 owner who wants more versatility or range. I would part with three lenses:
  1. DA16-45 (ex+, 77cPL filter, hood, box and caps)
  2. DA55-300 (ex+, hood, caps, pouch) and
  3. a new DA18-55WR acquired this month (hood, caps, generic box).
I could include my 55- 50-200WR also but would prefer to keep it.. alternatively it could go and I keep the 55-300.
A bit of cash could work instead of one of the lenses, but I need to keep cash outlay to under us$200.

I will let this offer hang out until Feb 10th 7th before responding to purchase offers. If we go to sale mode, worldwide offers will be taken.

Basic USA shipping included with these, so add a bit more for longer trips or more security. I'll absorb PayPal fees.
$245 DA16-45 - $290 DA55-300 - $120 $100 WR18-55

Well, I figured it was worth a go - have yet to see a used 18-135, but wanted to give time for someone to grab one, swap me & presumably make a profit. I've lowered the 18-55wr price and shortened the time span, having received a few offers that should net me the 18-135 anyway. Thanks for looking!

Hmmm, yeah, I would just buy the 18-135mm on Amazon and sell your lenses if I were you. It's $500 shipped on Amazon last time I looked.

deal is done!

Thanks for watching! I am sure I could have done better with straight sales and buying the 18-135, but I'm paying the price of a hasty decision - and I'm still quite happy with the result. Not to keep that receipt, in case DC motors have issues (please no, no no! )
