Da* 50-135mm

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
DA* 50-135

Asking Price
$675 net to me

Item Location
Houston (United States)

Item Description
The last of my Pentax Digital equipment. Probably my favorite DA lens, the DA* 50-150.

The lens was bought pre-owned and did not come with a box, but a soft pouch. The lens cap is Pentax as is the rear cap. The lens hood is in pretty good condition, 8/10. The glass is nearly flawless, 9/10 or better.

Full disclosure, the lens was dropped and was unusable. It has since then been sent to CRIS for repair and calibration. I have the receipt of that procedure and can elaborate if necessary.

Asking for $750 (net to me) or best offer. Please ask any and all questions. Thanks for viewing my listing. The pictures can be found below. Full size on my flickr.

I'd just like to say those are some of the nicest product shots of a 50-135 I've seen. Good luck with the sale. Wish I had the spare cash!

Hi, sorry I am not a potential buyer, but can I ask (for peace of mind on my copy of this) was the AF still working after this was dropped? I understand the pictures may have been unusable but was there something wrong with the AF, or just the actual glass? Thanks.

IIRC, when the lens was dropped, the AF was still fine, however one of the lens elements was jarred loose and had to be reseated.

Would provide examples if I could, however I have no Pentax body to shoot with. I DO accept returns though!
