[SOLD] Pentax SMC DA 16-45mm f/4 Marketplace Listing

** EDITED to ship to CONUS ONLY **
Sadly, USPS changed things since I last shipped. To send an item insured, it would have to go International Priority, Medium Flat Rate Box. $30.00 plus Paypal Fees puts the cost of doing business at 15% of the stated purchase price. Unless someone is willing to split the international fees, I must limit this to CONUS only. My apologies. I have sent many items to Canada and overseas. It seems that the USPS, in a last ditch effort to save its inefficient hide, has left me no choice. Sorry to all our neighbors to the north. It's nothing personal...

Item for Sale
Pentax SMC DA 16-45mm f/4

Asking Price
$235.00 Shipped TO CONUS ONLY

Item Location
Connecticut (United States)

Item Description
16-45mm in excellent condition. No issues beyond some subtle rubs on the hood. Smooth action, works as it should. No issue with glass or coating, aperture snappy and oil free. Operation as it should be. Sale includes original box and manual, original caps, lens and hood. The box is not perfect, but it is very good. UPC has been removed.

I am selling only because I really do not use this lens anymore and I need the money. Essentially I really only ever used it at 16mm. I won three ribbons in various contests with this lens and that convinced me to step up to the DA 15mm. I did and have rarely used this lens since.

Photos FROM the lens:

Photos OF the lens (sorry about the WB issue). Di not do a perfect job cleaning the lens as I tend not to like to touch the elements. I do not see dust inside the lens, but if there is any, it does not affect IQ.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Are you selling or trading this item?
