Pentax DA L 55-300mm f4-5.8 ED Zoom Lens Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax DA L 55-300mm f4-5.8 ED Zoom Lens

Asking Price
195.00 USD

Item Location
Pennsylvania (United States)

Item Description
Pentax DA L 55-300 f4-5.8 ED Zoom lens for sale.

This lens has to be one of the best value items in the Pentax line. Good build quality along with outstanding image quality for a kit lens.

I bought this lens recently from a forum member for my wife to use. She has been using my DA* 60-250 and FA*300 4.5, and I thought she might like a lighter zoom. It turns out that I must have got her hooked on my nice lenses, so we decided to just continue to use the ones we have.

The lens is in like-new condition. There is no dust at all inside, and the glass is spot and mark free. The body of the lens is also in near perfect condition as you can see in the photos. I bought a JJC hood for the lens which will be included with the sale. I feel the JJC brand hoods are the best you can get for an aftermarket hood. This hood also has the removable window for turning a CPL filter.

Included with this sale:

DA L 55-300 lens
Both original lens caps - rear is the soft plastic push on type - front is the regular Pentax pinch cap
JJC hood in its original box

Shipping: I ship via USPS Priority Mail and will be shipped the following business day after payment is received

Payment: I accept PayPal for payment with no fees assessed to the buyer.

Here is the review page for this lens:
