Pentax DA* 50-135mm F/2.8 (Price Drop!)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax DA* 50-135mm F/2.8

Asking Price
$700 $650 Net after paypal

Item Location
CT (United States)

Item Description
Selling my DA* 50-135mm. Comes with UV filter original front and rear caps, lens hood, soft case and box. I bought this from another forum member a couple years ago and this has been a real workhorse lens. It is still in excellent condition and has always had a filter attached to the front for as long as I have owned the lens. There are no marks on the front or rear elements and so far no SDM issues .

I am only selling this because it no longer fits my shooting style (I'm cutting down to just primes) and I have too many other expensive hobbies If I didn't need the money this would definitely be a keeper and I hope I can acquire one again some time in the future. If you've never owned a DA* lens before, they're simply magnificent lenses to just hold and look at.

I don't have any current pictures of the lens, I can take some later this week. In the meantime here are some older pictures of the lens.

Amazing that this lens has not sold yet - I have noticed lately that a lot of lenses seem to be hanging around in the market place for a long while; pretty odd if you ask me...

It's a wonderful lens. I traded with a member for a DA 60-250. I'm tempted, just for a little wider angle but can't justify it right now. If it meets your FL needs, it is a great piece of glass!

Thanks, yeah I'm quite surprised too. In my opinion this is the best Pentax zoom lens currently in production.
