Losing Eyesight..... Must Also Lose Lenses Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Losing Eyesight..... Must Also Lose Lenses

Asking Price

Item Location
Brookln, New York (United States)

Item Description
These are lens purchases I've made, largely over the course of the past year, in the futile effort to stave off the inevitable realization that I'm losing my eyesight.
Consequently, many of these have seen little or no use.
1 - Pentax 18- 250 Zoom..... light use, Excellent..... $450..... REDUCED to $425
2 - Pentax 12 - 24 Zoom..... light use, Excellent..... $690..... REDUCED to $650..... SOLD
3 - Pentax 100 WR Macro..... Mint, unused..... $480..... SOLD
4 - Pentax 77 Limited..... Mint, unused..... $650..... SOLD
5 - Pentax 43 Limited..... Mint, unused..... $510..... SOLD
6 - Pentax 21 Limited..... Mint, unused..... $350..... SOLD
7 - Pentax 40 Limited..... just used for a few days worth of shooting..... $260..... SOLD
8 - Pentax 16 - 45 Zoom..... Mint, unused..... $230..... SOLD
9 - Pentax 55-300 DA-L Zoom..... Mint, unused..... $180..... SOLD

Without at this moment double-checking, most have the original boxes, caps, hoods. By unused, I mean that I removed the lenses from their boxes, tested them out on a camera, & either returned them to their original boxes or placed them in a more secure separately purchased case/pouch, in which case the pouch/case will also be included with the sale. All prices include fully insured CONUSA shipping.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Are you selling or trading this item?

I am so sorry to hear that. I think I can speak for this community of photographers and offer you our best wishes. Good luck with the sale and with everything else.

I had a corneal transplant done on my right eye a few months ago and keratoconus in my left eye that still needs work. I wish you the best in your personal life and with this sale.
