[SOLD] Fs: Pentax-da-fish-eye-10-17mm-f3.5-4.5-ed-if

Surplus to requirements, and very little-used. Rather than leave it sitting in its box, I'd prefer to sell it to someone who would use it.

It is in "as-new" condition, complete in original Pentax box.

Asking $Aus 450 plus shipping. I'm in Australia, so Aussies would be easier to ship to.

Best price from camerawarehouse.com.au is $Aus 699

I can be contacted at:

Should be getting the costs today for shipping to Norway. I called the Post Office yesterday, and a clerk had a guess - at about $Aus100.....!!! That would be post plus insurance.

However, he was going to check with the system and get back to me today.

For some reason, not many people send parcels from Australia to Norway.

I'll contact KjetilH in Norway, as he was first in line. If the cost is prohibitive, I'll post an update on here.

The other interested party, in Sydney, is no longer in the race.

Update #2: Just waiting for Australia Post to get back to me (was supposed to be today, but no word) re the exact shipping costs to the person in Norway.

If that turns into a no-go, I'll post an update here, then I'm open to offers/bribes/plain brown envelopes, etc etc ...

Hi all - the sale to Norway has been cancelled due to shipping problems (that $25 cost you quote above is for the freight, plus another $20-odd for ExtraCover insurance. Thanks for finding that PDF Alfisti - appreciated). The prospective buyer decided not to proceed.

The lens was immediately snapped up by another Aussie , who was the second person to contact me after the initial post.

Thanks to all for the interest, and apologies for the delays before a final decision was made. The lens will be on its way to Sydney this morning.
