Da*50-135 2.8 $590 Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
DA*50-135 2.8 $595

Asking Price
$590 USD

Item Location
Minnesota (United States)

Item Description
Insured USPS shipping and standard PayPal fees included in Price. Gift payment NOT required

DA*50-135 2.8 ($590 Shipped)

- Good condition
- I am not the original owner
- Original Pouch,, hood and lens caps included
- Original Box and papers included.
- Sharp copy.

-Okay, there are two issues with this lens. First, a tiny tab on the hood is broken off, as shown in the bottom left of the picture below. The hood still attaches without being wobbly, however.

-Second, I have priced this lens so low because I believe it will eventually need to have the SDM replaced. I have had 3 copies of the 50-135 over the years, and this one has the most squeaky SDM. Also, this lens might occasionally take a split second longer than usual to engage the SDM. This is a very subjective thing, and I am just not sure. I am not convinced this is happening, but I am also not convinced that it is not. Please note, this is NOT why I am selling this lens. I have been using this lens happily capturing shots of my kids. See the f2.8 100% crop of my son's eye below. I am reducing my kit all around, and will either end up with a very small Pentax kit, or no Pentax items at all.

-For the above reason, and because of the low price, this lens will be sold as is, unless the lens arrives with a dead SDM.

Shipping and Payment Terms:

-Paypal payment is accepted and I will absorb the paypal fee. Gift option NOT required.
-US shipping is included via Insured USPS priority mail. If you are from another location, please PM me and I will look into what I need to do to ship to your location. Likely there would be a shipping fee for such an arrangement. I retain the right to give preference to US purchasers and to deny to ship to certain locations.
-Items will be shipped from Minnesota, USA
-IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to my obligations, it could be up to two business days after receipt of payment before I ship purchased items. It also might be the same day, it just depends. I apologize for this, but I have no way around it. Thank you for your patience.

Thank you for looking.
