Item Description
Photos of the lens are now below and in a post that follows. Photos follow in second email, but you can see a full description of the venerable Pentax DA 18-250mm lens at SMC Pentax-DA 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 ED AL [IF] Reviews - Pentax Lens Reviews & Pentax Lens Database.

> Bought new with my k20d a few years ago and it was the primary lens that I used. Just acquired a used Pentax 60-250mm lens which I love, so I am itching for a wider angle, faster lens to replace the 18-250mm.

> Lens is clean, always protected in a Kata camera bag, never dropped, with no scratches other than the normal wear and even this is minimal since the lens was almost always on the body. No fungus and the focus and zoom rings operate smoothly.

> Includes the original lens caps, front and back, lens hood and lens box.

I have imbedded a few photos of the lens below as well as some of the shots from this lens on my K20. For the fun of it I have attached a few photos taken with this lens (blame the photographer, not the lens !) Most, except the first moon shot, were taken near Big Bend National Park in Texas. The moon shots were just to see what could be done with a relatively inexpensive lens. (Note: they were shot in daylight, with the cropping, lighting and monocromation (?) a result in playing around in Bibble Pro. So it is not what you can do right from the camera, of course, but it is amazing to me that it can be done at all with a lens like this. AND, all of these were hand-held - no tripod!! Thanks, Pentax, for Anti-Shake!)

I wouldn't sell the lens, but with the wonderful (and HEAVY) 60-250 in my possession, I need something like the Tamron 17-50mm 2.8 to handle the range I need for my business!

Thanks for looking!

Finally, a couple of quick shots of the lens itself! Shot in a small office, florescent lighting and no flash - a bit of a stretch for the 60-250mm lens to pull off, but the only way that I could snap these quickly!

Hi,

I'm interested in the Pentax 18-250. As a Pentax owner in Australia, I'm finding this lense difficult to find. Unfortunately Pentax has lost support in recent years, even K Mount Sigma and Tamron equivalents are rare.

Do you still have your lense available and would you be prepared to ship to Oz? If so, please let me know your price and shipping.

I'm looking for the lense to marry to a K10d for a forthcoming trip to the US.

PS: do you have any other close-ups of the lense?
