[SOLD] Pentax DA* 16-50 f2.8 zoom - $650AUD (Worldwide)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax DA* 16-50 f2.8 zoom - $650AUD

Asking Price
650 AUD

Item Location
Melbourne, Australia

Item Description
Up for sale is this Pentax DA* 16-50 f2.8 zoom.

I have only had it one week! The few pics I took were sharp, contrasty and lovely.

Forum member DanielT74 owned it prior to me, and can probably tell you more about it. Is optically and cosmetically perfect, zero issues.

Check the record and you will see I am selling for EXACTLY the same asking price; I am not a profiteer. Local buyer (Melbourne) can collect and save on postage.

Functions perfectly, NO SDM ISSUES - not for DanielT, not for me. Does not come with hood/box etc, as I did not receive these items when I purchased them.

The only reason I am selling this lens, is because I tried it out on a paid job (low-light, live music) and found myself preferring the manual focussed shots I got with the 31 LTD/primes in general. Some habits are hard to break.

Call it un unsuccessful (for ME) experiment with "checking to see if i can still incorporate zooms into my work". Turns out, no. Prefer primes.

Pics to come later tonight.

Any warranty left? SDM failure terrifies me.

Didn't come with one. I have no idea how old it is - you could try mailing DanielT? Friendly forum member. Would certainly disclose. SDM has worked flawlessly for me on the few occasions I took it out.

I prefer to focus manually, anyway.

No warranty but no issues either. I wasn't the first owner so I can;t really tell you about the age.

Not sure about the pattern of SDM failures (whether they happen in the first two years or later as well) but my guess is that it is not as wide-spread as you might think. There are many happy 16-50mm users out there and I was one until I sold it.
