DA*16-50 and DA*50-135

Oh boy, I'm probably going to regret this, but here goes.....

DA* 16-50 2.8: This lens has been my workhorse. Never so much as a hiccup from the SDM. Super sharp right at 2.8, especially at 50mm. A couple scratches on the front element, towards the edges, which as far as I know affects IQ not in the slightest. Also the polarizer window thingy fell off and was devoured by the void. Asking $450 shipped.

DA* 50-135 2.8: Wait, actually this lens has been my workhorse. Very good, sharp copy. No problems with SDM ever. Not much to say about it here, except that it is a joy to use. Only problem is the hood does not click on real tight due to a part of the plastic being cracked. During actual use I never noticed while shooting. Comes with box and pouch. Asking $550 shipped.

Please see pictures below and ask any questions.

Paypal is the preferred method of payment, unless you are in the CA Bay Area and want to meet up.
