Da 55-300

Oh, the legend of "affordable excellence" in the world of Pentax AF glass! The DA 55-300mm is well known and highly respected as a compact, light, and sharp zoom lens with a sweet spot at 300mm, right where you want it. See the reviews for this lens here:
Pentax-DA 55-300mm Review - Image Quality -

And my review with photos taken by this very lens, here:

DA 55-300mm - $250
In very good condition, with excellent glass, and the only visible wear is a rub mark on the hood (shown in the photo). I've taken some of my favorite shots with this lens, mainly because it's small enough to walk around with all day, long enough to get me close to the action, and plenty sharp enough to be confident of the image quality!
Comes with the original front and rear caps and hood. No box or other material, but will be packed well for shipment.

Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 - SOLD $300
