DA* 16-50 f2.8 Broken SDM Sale pending

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
DA* 16-50 f2.8 Broken SDM

Asking Price
300 USD

Item Location
Minneapolis, MN (United States)

Item Description
I am the original owner of this lens. The SDM focusing does NOT work on this lens. I have repaired it twice and decided not to do further repairs. It has sat for past two years.

The optics are great. No marks, fungus, or anything else with the optics. Some dust on the outside - it was a working lens.

The screw drive works. Just tried it with my PZ-1 and no problem there. There is a hack to use this lens just with screw drive but I'm not adventuresome to try and I am getting rid of my zooms and going prime only (due to weight/neck and back issues). The hack is described at https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-slr-lens-discussion/208353-how-dea...m-f-2-8-a.html

So if you can do the hack, you have a wonderful lens at a very cheap price ($300). I have found the same lens with broken SDM in auction on ebay for $450 so I priced this to sell. Likewise if you want a manual focus lens. Or you can get the SDM fixed (was about $150 when I had it done, don't know if they have improved the repair process or not). But its just time for me to let it go.

I will take it, although I am trying to sell off zoom also. :-)

I keep a K10D at earlier firmware to use screw drive on DSM failed lens, so even no need to do high-tech things to use it. Thanks
