Item Description
So we’ve all seen and heard the marketing plug for “WR”,that “must-have” feature that adds cost to a lens and somehow, magically, letsPentax play with abandon in the land where Canikons fear to tread. But what, exactly, does that mean? It is, after all, “Resistant”, not “Proof”. And it isn’t “Water Resistant” (or WaterProof) but “Weather Resistant”. So what,exactly, can I depend on?
Like many, I bought the WR message, and when I acquired myK-30 early this year I paid extra to get the kit with a DA 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 WR lens included. I immediately bought the DA 50-200mm F4-5.6 WR to complete the set. Cool, fully WR rig!

Recently, I had the chance to find out first-hand just how much confidence I can have in “WR”. Take a look at my blue K-30, with the DA 50-200 WR, at a football game recently. Everyone else had put their gear away, or covered it up. I shot 400 pictures that night, there’s a sample here.
So now, I’m hooked. And, I’ve got upgrade-it is. I’m looking at the DA 18-135 WR coupled with the new DA 50-300 WR to get me a little closer to the action in a full WR kit. I’m selling these lenses to fund that investment.

This is a perfect deal for you if you have wanted the confidence of the “WR” protection but not felt really sure it was beneficial. Both lenses are "Like New"++, and have been pampered. Both come with front and rear Pentax caps, Pentax Hoods, and serial number cards. The DA 50-200 WR comes with a Pentax box, (the18-55 doesn’t because it was a kit lens). I’ll wrap and insure both, and cover PayPal fees.

Hi - the price is $225 for the two lenses, plus $20 in shipping both, marked down from the original. Not sure why it lets you update it, and it does change it, but not inside the listing.
