Pentax DA* 16-50mm f/2.8

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax DA* 16-50mm f/2.8

Asking Price
500.00 AUD

Item Location
Perth, Western Australia (Australia)

Item Description
I recently purchased a camera kit with a range of items, some of which I'll be keeping and then selling those items which are surplus to requirements.
I'm not the original owner but I have tested all items and they are functioning correctly, as per the descriptions.

The first item is a Pentax DA* 16-50mm f/2.8 lens in excellent condition.
Serial number 9019902.

I have tested focus on both a K20 and a K5 and the SDM works correctly. No squeaks or lag. Having said that I have recently converted my other copy of this lens to screw drive, so if you would prefer I can convert this to screw drive for you before shipping.

The exterior cosmetic condition is excellent, with no significant scratches, bumps or marks.
Both front and rear glass are unmarked and there is minimal dust in the lens.
The aperture blades are clean and responsive.
The focus ring turns smoothly and the zoom ring is smooth, with just some extra firmness between 28-50mm, which seems similar on my other copy...I'm assuming this is a factor of the zoom design.

If I did not already have a copy of this lens I would certainly be keeping this one, but I can't justify keeping two copies.

The lens will come with a third party (Inca) front lens keep and a third party rear lens cap. It has the original complete lens hood PH-RBJ 77mm.

I will post pictures when I have the chance to take some...just wanted to get the listing up to start with.

Please PM me if interested or and if you have further questions. Thanks for looking.

The item will be packaged securely for shipping and the listed price includes shipping in Australia.
If you are interested in purchasing from overseas then please contact me for a shipping estimate.
I am happy to accept returns if the item is not as described.
I'm also happy to do C.O.D. if you are available to collect from Perth, Western Australia, with a reduction for the cost of shipping.

Posting some photos from the lens.
Pretty un-scientific...tripod, 2 second timer, live view focus, iso 100, inside at night (with a TV on in the room playing with the colour...), f2.8, f4.0, f5.6, f8.0 at 34mm focal length.
Lightroom 4.0 converted from K5 DNG RAW using Huelight K5 Standard profile to Jpeg at 1024 long edge with no adjustment other than white balance.
Hope they help.
Cheers
Dean

Not bad at all Dean! The sharpness @ 2.8 is not the best, however I think this is quite normal for the lens (it is not too bad either), @ 5.6 looks the best. Awesome lens by any means.
