Pentax DA 17-70mm FIRESALE

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax DA* 16-50mm (Updated SDM!) and DA 17-70mm

Asking Price
750 USD 725 USD $675 SOLD!!! $295

Item Location
Chicago Area (United States)

Item Description
Selling my PENTAX-DA* 1:2.8 16-50mm ED AL [IF] SDM for JUST $675 shipped and paypalled.


The DA* 16-50mm just came back from C.R.I.S. (10/28 - after three months), and has been updated with the NEW SDM motor and also a replaced main board (needed for the new motor). In addition the lens had a damaged zoom cam ring replaced, and of course was adjusted and cleaned. Total price for the repair was $280 including shipping. I will include the paperwork for the repair which has a six month warranty. My understanding talking to the technician is that Pentax is replacing the original SDM motor with a stronger version, which requires the mainboard to be replaced. The SDM was actually working fine, though I did have an issue with the lens twice being stuck at 50mm - the zoom cam issue now fixed. The technician recommended replacing the SDM as well and the price difference wasn't that great. So your gain!

I am selling this lens as I have added a number of limited lenses and can't justify keeping the DA* as well. The lens shows signs of use (see the pictures) but looks great, and the glass is clean, with no scratches or fungus, The DA* 16-50mm comes with original PH-RBJ lens hood, and original front and rear cap. It does not include case or box. It includes a high quality UV filter (always mounted) as well.

Also selling a PENTAX-DA 1:4 17-70mm AL [IF] SDM I was testing out as a possible replacement. Price $360 $320 $295 shipped and paypalled FINAL PRICE

To supplement my limited lenses and to have a WR lens, I got a WR 18-135mm. I came across a used 17-70mm, and purchased that as well for comparison. The 17-70mm definitely have better IQ, and I did not see any issues with AF on my K-5 as reported. In the end I decided the smaller, and longer reaching, WR 18-135mm works better for me as a casual supplement to my limited lenses, so the 17-70mm is going. The lens is in good condition, showing only limited sign of use. The glass is clean, scratch and fungus free. If there is any dust, it is very minor. The lens works perfectly. It includes original front and rear caps, as well as lens hood. No case or paperwork.

Lowered price. Please check the discription. THis is the NEW STRONGER SDM motor, that Pentax has JUST started to replace the old ones with. Getting this is probably one of the few ways you can gurantee getting a DA* 16-50 with this fix, other than sending an order one into Pentax. A new one may or may not be update....
