Item Description
I am moving to mirrorless so I am slowly selling off my Pentax gear.

I bought this lens a while ago on eBay. The first time I tried it it would focus extremely slowly but after a while the speed got back to normal (keep in mind that the 50-135 focus is very slow anyway). The seller told me that the lens had been sitting around for a long time so maybe something had to loosen up.

Since then I haven't had any problems but you should be aware that the initial slowness may be a sign of an impending SDM failure. In this case you may want to have the SDM repaired or convert the lens to screw drive.

Optically the lens performs great.

I hope I have disclosed the situation properly. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Are you selling or trading this item?
