Pentax DA 55-300 f4-5.8 ED Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax DA 55-300 f4-5.8 ED

Asking Price

Item Location
Pennsylvania (United States)

Item Description
I said I would never sell it......but never say "never" I guess.

Up for sale is my DA 55-300 lens. This has been my favorite lens for most of my shooting and has been planted on my K20D and now K-5 most of the time. I've taken most of my best images with this lens.

So why am I selling it you ask....? Well, I finally saved up enough for my dream lens in or near this focal range, and bought a DA* 60-250 (and was lucky enough to buy it before the April Fools Day price increase). I just love the 60-250 enough that the 55-300 has been stored away in its pouch since. So, it is time to let it go.

I bought it used here on the Marketplace a little over a year ago. The glass is clean (I can't see any dust at all in it) and everything functions as it should. Please note that this is the DA version and not the DA-L. This DA version has the metal mount, quick shift feature, and factory hood.

Here is a link to the PF review page(s) for this lens:

SMC Pentax-DA 55-300mm F4-5.8 ED Reviews - DA Zoom Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

Included with the sale:

DA 55-300 lens
Both original front and rear caps
Original Pentax pouch
Box including manual

The photos below were taken at the time of the listing. The pics of the birdhouse (my favorite test object for some reason) are as follows: 1st image @55mm F8 1/100s iso 100 - 2nd image @300mm F8 1/400s iso 400.

Shipping is included in the price listed via USPS Priority Mail. I generally ship the next business day after receiving payment. Payment via PayPal to verified address.
