Pentax DA 18-250mm lens + polarizing filter incl. - PRICE DROP

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax DA 18-250mm lens (with UV & polarizing filter included)

Asking Price
220.00 USD OR AUD$300 - due to fluctuating currencies

Item Location
Adelaide, SA (Australia)

Item Description
Despite me owning several Ltd lenses and DA* zooms, I tended to take this with me on holiday to lighten the travel load and the IQ was surprisingly good considering the superzoom range. Outperforms the 18-55 kit with much longer reach, weighs little more, better image quality than the Sigma 18-250. Comes with original padded case, hood, box, booklets etc and UV filter AND polarizing filter, aftermarket front cap.

Very well looked after, in very good condition better than nearly anything else you’ll find. There are a few tiny specs of dust internal to the lens (extremely common for super zoom lenses) though these are not visible and do NOT appear to affect image quality at all.

Asking US$220 ono
OR AUD$300 - due to fluctuating currencies
+ paypal fee + postage at cost;
US$25 to USA & Canada registered, US$35 to UK & Europe registered , less to Aust NZ etc see - Postage calculator - Australia Post for other locations

Bump - added Australian Dollar option for anyone not using USD currency - there has been a bit of a shift in recent days so might be better for some.

Really good holiday lens option.

Bump - price drop

Great little walk-around lens here with better IQ than the 18-55 kits but significantly more reach.

This copy is in particularly good condition AND includes a Polarizing Filter + UV filter.

Bump!
I'd have kept this if I hadnt switched sides and gone full frame - doesnt seem to be that many good superzoom options for FF.

Though I didnt buy it new, I treat all my lenses like my babies so this is a really good copy, and as mentioned, this one includes a circular polarizer and UV protecting filter with it.
Comes with all the original packaging, case, booklets etc!

I can confirm that this lens delivers surprisingly good IQ. Recommended if portability is a priority.

Yeah I half expected it to be a bit average because of the huge range, but was pleasantly surprised - I actually bought it part way through a holiday when I decided lugging all my primes around wasnt really that conducive to enjoying the break as much.

Much better than expected on the long end and beats the 18-55 kit lens for IQ (but with substantially longer reach) - there was a thread somewhere in here that showed the lens performance with the 18-250 edging out the 18-55 and being comparable to the 50-200.

Bump again for a tidy upgrade from the 18-55 kit, or as a great all-in-one holiday lens.

PLUS
this one comes with a polarizing filter AND a protective filter included.
