For Sale: DA* 50-135 & DA* 200

For sale are two used DA* lens. Glass is clean and clear.

Prices include PayPal fees, buyer to pay for tracked shipping. Prices are firm.

SOLD. DA* 50-135 f2.8 - $400. I purchased this lens from a former PF'er from this post. The lens is in decent condition and takes sharp pictures. The SDM has stalled on me a couple times in the three years I have owned it, but is still working and the AF is accurate. The lens comes with both lens caps, hood and lens pouch.

DA* 200 f2.8 - $600. I purchased this lens used from Henry's in the fall of 2014. Lens is fast and silent in autofocusing, however there is a slight grinding noisewhen using manual focus. Otherwise in good condition. Lens comes with both caps and hood, but no pouch. A good opportunity to get a FF compatible lens! Video for the noise on YouTube:


Returns accepted, buyer will pay shipping.

Basically I have just not been using this kit - I've settled into black and white film - and I don't see myself using it going forward. I've been holding off posting this on account of the 50-135, as its a wonderful lens and at the posted price, a great opportunity for a fellow enthusiast. I haven't used the DA*200 enough to judge it, but it is the fastest focusing DA* lens I've used.

I'm trying - really hard - to convince myself that the 50-135 would make a good graduation present to myself....
Could you please post a 100% pic from the 50-135? Thanks.
John

I've had a number of requests for more pictures over the last week. Sorry folks its taken me this long to post something. Our dog died unexpectedly earlier this week and its been difficult to focus on much else.

Pic's of the 50-135 attached. The dust is on the front of the lens, there is no visible dust in the lens.

Hi Gareth. The DA*200 works on Pentax AF film cameras too, you know. It has screwdrive along with SDM, and covers the 35mm frame.
But maybe you don't shoot that long on B&W film?


Regards,
--Anders.

Oh I know. All my film work is in medium format and I don't intend to use this in 35mm.
