[SOLD] Pentax DA* 60-250 for DA* 50-135 + cash (CONUS) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax DA* 60-250 for DA* 50-135 + cash

Asking Price
trade + cash

Item Location
Seattle, WA

Item Description
Hi all, I have the DA* 60-250 lens and it is no doubt a phenomenal lens, but I am primarily a fly fisherman and secondarily a photographer, so I have to carry a lot of gear and be able to have a camera hanging on my back all day to get that quick shot and then go back to fishing. As a result I think that for me the 50-135 would be a better option.

I am not interested in a copy of the lens that has ever shown any signs of SDM issues whatsoever, including lenses that were sent back to pentax to have the motors replaced. Preferably looking for a lens less than a year old.

My 60-250 is in really nice condition and comes with everything as if new. I purchased it from a forum member who was the original owner, and the lens is around a year old I believe. I am thrilled with the lens from the trip I took it on, but would like to lighten my pack.

Please note I am not desperate to make this trade and so will need the right deal to justify the switch. I would like in cash around 75% of the difference in retail value of the two lenses, or about $560 (adorama price for 60-250 is $1649, and 50-135 is $ was another $50 more expensive than adorama for 60-250 and could not find anywhere else where 60-250 could currently be ordered for cheaper including b&h).

Please shoot me an email at if interested.

Good luck with the sale, Loren! If you don't get any bites (pardon the pun), send me an email. I may have more funds towards the end of this month.
