Item Description
DA 16-50 2.8 - Overall the exterior condition of this is excellent. The optics are perfectly clean also. It functions on the Screw-drive as it has used the firmware adjustment to do so. It functions that way on any camera body. The previous user converted it because the SDM failed. The screw drive is excellent though.

It is a beauty and captures amazing colors. I have to disagree with the 16-50 vs. 17-50s shoot out conclusion. I have used the Tamron 17-50 extensively, and this has much better bokeh than the 17-50s do. The 9 blades make a large difference.
The focusing is almost as quick as the 17-50 Tamron. Its micro contrast is incredible compared. And this thing is razor sharp at 3.2 or above. The sharpness at 2.8 is great for portraits. Beautiful skin rendering, amazing colors, and of course, rugged and weather sealed.

Since it is only screw drive I am offering it at $510 shipped. The reason I am selling is I will sell this is because I am content with my Tamron, even though the rendering is better on this.

I will take an FA 43 limited in excellent condition for trade.

I would also take a Sigma 30 1.4 EX and $200 USD for trade.


Comes with original hood, caps, and a bonus Hoya HMC Super 77MM UV (O) - those aren't cheap!
