Condition

Glass is perfect. Aperture is perfect. Body is perfect. Hood is perfect. Caps are perfect. Mount has normal signs of use. There are a few bits of dust inside but nothing out of the ordinary (has no affect on image quality).


Warranty

An extended warranty was purchased for this lens on 5/17/2011. It is a 7 year extended warranty from Mack Warranties. As of today there 4 years, 7 weeks, and 5 day remaining on the warranty. It expires 5/17/2018. It costs $20 to transfer the warranty to a new owner, so if you do not want the warranty, there will be a $20 discount on the lens.


Why I'm selling it


I purchased this lens less than a year ago second hand. I had grand plans for this lens but I have unfortunately have found myself using primes more than anything. I'd really love to keep this lens considering it's fast aperture, great IQ, and compactness, but I'd most likely find myself not using it once again.


About the lens

This lens is the perfect upgrade lens for someone wanting more (speed, sharpness, build quality, wider focal view) than their kit zoom has to offer.

Here is a short list of this lens's strong suits:

- F2.8 constant fast aperture throughout zoom range
- Faster AF than standard kit zoom
- Smaller, lighter, and closer minimum focusing distance compared to similarly spec'ed lenses
- Zoom lock (I wish all lenses had one. Very convenient)

This lens is sharper than Pentax's own professional DA* 16-55mm F2.8 zoom and is rated better overall according to the Pentax Forum in-depth comparison...DA* 16-50mm vs. Sigma and Tamron 17-50mm F2.8 Comparison - The Bottom Line - PentaxForums.com
