Da 55-300 4.0-5.8 ed Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
DA 55-300 4.0-5.8 ED

Asking Price

Item Location
San Jose, CA (United States)

Item Description
This is the DA model with metal mount, not DA-L.

Mint condition . I bought this about 3 weeks ago in a bit of LBA frenzy from someone who claimed to have bought it new from Amazon only 2 months before.

It looks new. No scratches on the glass. Comes with the original hood and pouch.

The lens performs well and has good optical quality, but I just do not need it. My DA 18-250 is good enough.

$300 with free US shipping to by USPS priority mail.

Payment by check or money order OK, please allow 3 business days for clearing.

Add 3% for Paypal.

For other countries, I will ship via US priority or express mail, at cost plus $10 handling fee .

Pics of the lens added to the original post. Here are some shots taken with it. I acquired the lens on 5/17 .

First shot (flowers) is the only test shot that I kept from the acquisition day.

Second one (cat) was shot at ISO 6400, no PP - it needs a bit of noise reduction, but that's not the fault of the lens, it was the lighting conditions. I don't like flash, and my cat likes it even less.

Third is a night shot of my other non-Pentax DSLR with the mirror lens on tripod. ISO 1600 with flash.

Fourth is a daytime distant shot from my balcony. Dumbarton bridge about 20 miles away can be seen in the distance.
