Item Description
Pentax DA17-70mm f/4 AL IF SDM Lens. Have two, will sell one and keep one.



• Sdm Autofocus
• Super-protective Coating Protects Exposed Lens Elements
• Quick-shift Focus System Allows Instant Switching From Auto Focus To Manual Focus
• Equivalent focal length of 26-107mm in 35mm format.
• ED and aspherical elements compensate for chromatic and spherical aberration.

I wanted to compare this lens and DA 18-135mm lens and ended up with two copies of 17-70 (bought one copy from here, and won the other from ebay 2 days later).

I want to sell one of two copies I have. Both lenses work flawlessly, no SDM issue. Zoom and focus rings also work fine as they should. Aperture blades are dry and move freely. Don’t know which one sells easier, and I will let you to help me making the decision.

I will put the Hoya HMC UV filter at very good condition on the lens you pick.


Copy #1: Better over-all condition. $275 + shipping

A little internal dust, as you can see from the pictures taken under two flashes. This is not a WR lenses and dust goes into the lens from the front end (the rear end is sealed though). They do not affect anything but are there. No scratches or fungus, no haze.

As said, AF works, quick and quiet. No zoom creeping.

Cosmetically, it is also very clean. Both original Pentax caps and PH-RBM hood.



Copy #2. Les perfect comparing with the 1st one. $ 240 + shipping.

Cosmetically, it is also pretty clean. PH-RBM hood miss the small filter widow cover. Third party front cap.

It has a little bit more internal dust than the 1st one, still not bad, just more obvious under strong backlight. It had 2 small spots of fungus close to rear element, on the edge. I have UV treated it. Photos taken from it still as good.

AF works, quick and quiet. Aperture is oil-free, but it not perfect round when stopped down. Exposure is still accurate.

Great lenses! i did a test against 16-45 and 18-135, the 17-70 is a winer in terms of IQ.
