SMC Pentax DA* 60-250mm f4 ED (IF) SDM lens

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
SMC Pentax DA* 60-250mm f4 ED (IF) SDM lens

Asking Price
€849

Item Location
Mayo, Republic of Ireland

Item Description
This lens is highly rated and highly sought after – and for good reason. It is a gem, offering weather sealing to compliment the weather sealing on your K20D, K-7, K-5 or K-30 and allow you to get out there and shoot even when the weather’s not being kind.

It’s range of 60-250mm is excellent for sports and nature photography, as is its speed (f4 throughout the zoom range) and autofocus ability (it boasts the super fast and super quiet SDM). Obviously the most important future is its superb image quality! No wonder its average user rating is 9.74 out of 10!
SMC Pentax-DA* 60-250mm F4 ED [IF] SDM Reviews - DA Zoom Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

The only reason I am selling this lens is because I don’t use it – it has only been used a dozen times since I bought it (having 3 children aged under 4 means I mostly use my shorter lenses for portraits – it’s a big lens to carry when there’s usually a child in one arm!).

This is a sharp, clean, excellent “as new” copy with no autofocus issues. It includes the rear cap, lens cap, hood and tripod collar. A 3 YEAR PRO LENS WARRANTY from Mack Worldwide Warranty was purchased when I bought this, and doesn't expire until 31st March 2014 - so this has more warranty coverage than a new lens!

I have found the paperwork for the 3 YEAR PRO LENS WARRANTY from Mack Worldwide Warranty purchased for this lens - doesn't expire until 31st March 2014 - so this has more warranty coverage than a new lens!

You post this right after I purchase my own copy

Seriously, with the recent Black Friday rebates some people might have purchased their copies already,but I can vouch for that lens and say it's an excellent piece of glass! I too have a small child but I see myself using it a lot, even for portraits. Some lucky buyer will be happy to get it.

I'm surprised too!

Perhaps indicative of how small the market for Pentax is in Europe? If I was still in Australia, I think this would be long gone!

I am also surprised it's not sold yet. This is a lens that's on my wish list, but unfortunately I'm not sure if I can commit to buy one just yet :-(

Some interest but the lens is still available.

Note that the Mack warranty is fully transferable at a cost of US$20 - but I can give you a copy of the original sales receipt and the Mack warranty contract number, and then you can choose to transfer the warranty if the lens ever develops a fault (that way you're only paying the US$20 if you actually need to use the warranty).

Ireland is part of the EU - so there would be no customs/duties for other EU countries. This means this lens is perfect for any buyers in Europe.

Bump.
Lots of interest from people but no firm offer yet. Still available. I'd love to sell it before Christmas - and I'm sure you'd love to have this amazing lens in your hands before then too!

Bump and final price reduction. €849 for this lens, with more than a year's warranty is crazy cheap!
