PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
PENTAX DA* 16-50mm F2.8 ED SDM (EXC / IB) -- and much more --

Asking Price
750.00 USD

Item Location
Munich (Germany)

Item Description
Lens is condition EXC (May show signs of light wear and/or usage. LCD may have very slight blemishes. Lens glass is very clean). Optics may even be EXC+. I have never experienced a problem with the SDM focus drive.

Shutter count for lens: 3660 (based on archive statistics)

Purchase:
June 2009 (I am the original owner)
Serial: #9027995129258
with copy of invoice.

Please inspect images for further details:


Note that this lens is on display at an ebay auction,
ebay item id: 121222143570

The auction has a reserve price matching my asking price here. However, I will be waiting for the auction to terminate first. The auction page has links to more information like more and more detailed images.

I list this one item only here at PF. My normal sales activity is at ebay as I currently have to clear some of my aquired photo gear to make room for even more photo gear I wished I could list everything here at PF. But a large part of my main market (Germany) would probably not see it.

You may want to have a look at my other auctions. There will be 14 lenses, 2 bodies, 7 converters etc.

Yes

Can we know what camera that you are getting next? Selling your 16-50 does not cause optimism on the potential of a K-3. What are you thinking -- a Sony A7r or something we don't know about. Will help you bump the sale thread when it gets to 2nd page.

Cheers,
Hin

Hin,

as some of you may know, I got a D800E the first day it became available. With two growing systems, I really have to size down my collection. I am keeping my original K-5 (selling my Limited Silver) and a few select lenses. I am mostly keeping my Pentax system for a street photography style of shooting. For studio or work on demand, I'll use my Nikon which is too large to carry everywhere. For hiking, I actually started to prefer the RX100m2 with EVF my girl friend received as a gift

If I'd only use a single system, it would probably be the K-3 which seems to combine kind of best of all worlds.

But with its professional claim, it has to compete against my D800E and nobody currently actually comes close to a D800E which simply is the best money can buy (IMHO). But with the lenses, it was expensive too ...

I don't think the A7r is tempting me. I like the ergonomics and speed of Pentax / Nikon and Sony doesn't have it (yet). Moreover, the image quality of the A7r can't compete against a D800E. It has been tried and the image corners are very weak except with a few lenses made for full frame dSLRs, like a Pentax FA 31 Ltd. Which is kind of ironic. Or a few new expensive and slow Sony/Zeiss ones. And I never managed to consider m43, Nikon 1 or Fuji to be anything but gadgets. Different for Canon, I simply detest them I actually considered the RX1r, but the RX100m2 covers most of its use cases ...

So, I feel myself continue to support the Pentax system and idea of how a well made camera ought to look like. If anybody shows me a Df, I am responding, "didn't Nikon learn from the K-7 body at all?". And if Pentax would have made a full frame, many Pentaxians and myself wouldn't have invested in a second system ...

Sorry for the long post in a sales thread, but I thought I'd explain that I didn't loose faith in Pentax.

Hopefully Pentax will have a D800E contender someday. Free bump.
