DAL 55-300 w/hood & caps: Great Shape - REDUCED $159 shipped

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
DAL 55-300 Great Shape

Asking Price
175.00 USD REDUCED to $159

Item Location
Atlanta (United States)

Item Description
DAL 55-300 with original Pentax Cap and Generic Hood. First purchased as a kit with my K-x. I got the 55-300WR on the Pentax Webstore sale and it's silly to own both
  • Lens has lived with a CPL filter on it.
  • The glass perfect.
  • The body is in great shape as is the mount. Stored in LowePro lens cases in the field and a padded case at home.
  • Dust is at a minimum (I can only see two specs) internally.
  • No box or papers because it was part of a kit.
This lens is one of the most under-appreciated lenses in Pentax's lineup IMHO. This one has not required any focus adjustment on either my K-5 or K-5iis.

$175 159 shipped in the US via USPS (if you want Registered and/or insured contact me as that would be extra).

This is a great lens. I am selling most of my equipment but I am keeping this "little" guy for its versatility.

Seconded... Best affordable AF tele zoom out there, IMO. IQ on my copy is superb from about 100mm out to 300mm.

The marketplace has been tough lately. I had the original version, which I liked, but had a few long zooms - and something had to give :-)

Thanks. That 55-300WR sale and the CP+ announcements are why I think its still around. Honestly, I agonized over buying the WR version because this one is a solid performer.
