Pentax DA* 16-50 f2.8 -> NOW $635!!!

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax DA* 16-50

Asking Price
750 730 675 648 *635 USD*

Item Location
Vancouver (Canada)

Item Description
Selling

DA* 16-50

$635 USD

This includes PayPal fees and shipping with insurance and tracking in North America. Buyers outside of continental North America will receive a $25 credit towards shipping costs. I will not list this as a gift or skimp on the declared value for insurance purposes, so please keep that in mind if you are wary of potential duties incurred from this purchase.

PayPal will be the method of money exchange. I will also accept email money transfers from Canadian buyers with established feedback on these forums. I am located in the Vancouver area of BC, Canada, so if you're in the area I would not mind meeting up locally and doing a cash exchange.


********************

I had the fortune of recently obtaining the 16-50 and 50-135 from a local wedding photographer who was switching to Nikon. I'm keeping the 50-135, but I already had a Tamron 17-50 to compete with the 16-50. After some testing, I have decided to keep my Tamron because of its smaller size, and it's a bit better wide open (at apertures other than f2.8 they are equal). Thus the 16-50 must go.

The DA* 16-50 up for sale is in good condition. There are no significant scratches or dings on the body, and the glass has no scratches, haze, fungus, or other defects. Aperture blades function smoothly and snappily. Zooming is a little tight, but otherwise smooth and firm. Only the mount shows signs of wear. You can download the pictures I link to at the bottom and take a close look for yourself to see just how much. There are minimal dusts inside.

The serial number of this DA* 16-50 is 9044417. This places it within a nice chunk of non-problematic DA* 16-50s according to the Pentax serial number database.

In my testing I have encountered no signs of any potential SDM problems with the DA* 16-50. It focuses silently and quickly and accurately (no AF adjustment needed on my K30). In fact, what helped gain my confidence in this acquisition was the fact that it was heavily used by the previous owner for more than a year without problems.

It comes with the front and back caps, lens hood, official Pentax lens case, box and manual and serial number paper.

PM me if interested!

Hi there. Thanks for the reply.

I linked to pictures of the lenses at the bottom. I'll link them again here:

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/yj0lvin4viygx9o/sq63KNnxMR

Let me know if you are unable to see them.

If you are looking for pictures taken with the lens, I can do that when I get home.

Thanks again.

Hi there. Thanks for the message.

I was using the Sigma case when I listed this item, which is why its picture is there.

After listing, I was able to obtain the actual case (S100-140) from someone, so now that is the one that will ship with the lens.

That lens case can be found here: BLAH

Thanks for bringing that to my attention. I will remove that picture.

**********

All PM's replied to.

Also, just for clarification, the $25 shipping credit applies to buyers outside of North America. Thank you to the members who brought that to my attention. I will clarify that in my original post.

Thanks all.

**********

Update: Lens on hold pending payment.
