AF Zooms: Pentax-DA 10-17mm fish-eye, 16-45mm f4; Tamron 17-50mm f2.8

SMC Pentax-DA 16-45mm f4 ED AL Lens - $189 plus shipping SOLD
SMC Pentax-DA Fish-Eye 10-17mm f3.5-4.5 ED IF Lens - $409 plus shipping SOLD
Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 Aspherical LD XR DiII SP Lens - $299 plus shipping SOLD

Shipping in US - $10 for one, $13 for 2 or all three! International shipping available but rates will vary, please inquire about your country. Lower offers will be considered, but a full price offer will take 'em. I won't mark as a "gift" for customs purposes, sorry. PayPal is the preferred payment method although I will consider other methods if you strongly prefer.

I went on a crazy lens buying spree, and ended up with more stuff than one man can possibly use. Here are some of the things I have barely touched since I bought them - maybe you can put them to better use! All are in excellent condition, with only a few external marks to show that they have been used. All include original caps and hoods. For the 10-17mm fish-eye lens I have the pouch, box and paperwork too. IQ is good on all the lenses, although the 16-45 is a little softer on the edges at the wide end, especially on the right side. I think it is just field curvature, but nevertheless I am selling it at a bit of a discount. And the 10-17 is prone to CA laterally, just like the reviews say. The Tamron doesn't have any obvious issues. All lenses are free of scratches, haze and fungus, and function properly except as noted.

If you find anything not as described you can return it for a full refund, although international shipping may complicate that. If you have any questions, please ask! Thanks for looking, Nick

man, these are three excellent lenses, I want all of them! But if I did that, then I'd be the one who went on a "crazy lens buying spree" and I would have too many overlapping zooms than I possibly have time to use.... still, very very tempting. Hope someone buys them before I come to my senses!

To my lasting shame - my first Pentax kit was K100d, 16-45 and 55-20 Sigma. If this works out I'll have 16-45 and 50-200 Pentax... plus a couple others.
Should've stopped in May 2010 with all this swapping! (Bet I am not the only one who feels like this though..)

Some "brick wall" type shots with the Tamron wide open at short and long end, as requested, plus a 100% crop of the focal point.
