[SOLD] DA 18-55 WR (+$) for DAL 35 f/2.4 (Worldwide)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
DA 18-55 WR (+$) for DAL 35 f/2.4

Asking Price
(+$ for shipping of DAL 35)

Item Location
Queensland, Australia

Item Description
Up for a trade is the best kit lens of them all, the DA 18-55 WR.
This is the weather sealed version of the Mk II kit lens that not only produces sharp results, but has proven to be able to withstand austere conditions without a problem.

This copy is in excellent condition. Glass is clean, zoom function smooth with no play to the barrel. Loved this lens for its practicality, build and light weight. It produced some awesome images for me in my travels (see below).

It is being passed on in favour of the 35mm plastic wonder that I'm after to be the P&S and video lens for my wife (but I'm going to be playing with it also ).

So I'm looking for a trade of this weather resistant kit lens for the DA L 35 f/2.4 and will compensate the cost of postage for the lens to be shipped to me (leaving you with a free trade for a weather sealed zoom lens ).

Comes in original box, front and rear caps and clean lens hood.
Please PM me with questions and your interest. Thank you.











More examples are available in my online galleries here and on PPG.

Anyone with a DA L 35 they're thinking of doing away with?
If so, I'd buy it alone if you're not keen on a kit lens...
(I can always sell the kit lens later)

The DA (L) are quite rare, due to the cheapness and versatility. There was one here the other day, but I didn't buy it in time! I'm looking on a few forums looking for a cheaper DA (L) but might end up having to buy new (I hate buying new!)

Thanks for the heads up mate.
They shouldn't be rare, but they are hard to come by particularly in Australia.
That's why I'm trying my luck here - our Yank counterparts might give me some luck

I would be very interested in trading you. However, my copy of the DAL 35mm has some scratches or marks on the coating. They do not seem to effect the pictures taken with the lens. I have even tried to provoke it by shooting at angles to harsh light and what not and have not seen anything. This is my only lens that I have had this occur on, which is odd because I hardly ever use this lens. The biggest one is ~5mm long and near the center. The other one looks like a hair on the edge of the element and is ~2mm long. There is also two dots below the small mark. I have trouble taking pictures of the front element to illustrate. Again, I have never seen any of these marks show up in photos taken with the lens. Everything else about the lens is minty and I have the original box, caps, and paperwork.
