Condition

Glass, body, and aperture are great. No marks, no haze, no fungus, no oil. The mount and contact points look good.
I would have listed the lens as "Like New" because there are no signs of use, but per marketplace guidelines, I can't because I don't have the original box.



Why I'm selling it

This lens came bundled with the K-30 I bought my wife a couple years ago. She's never used the lens and neither have I (beyond testing it for this sale).



My impressions

If I used zooms I'd enjoy using this one as my go-to lens. It also has quite a few features most other K-mount lenses don't. More on that below.



About the lens





These three switches set this lens apart from most K-mount lenses...

First, the "AF-M" switch. Available on some third-party lenses and a feature reserved for the most expensive Pentax lenses. This switch allows "Catch-in-focus" image capture mode. More on that at the link below.

Catch-in-Focus Tutorial - Articles and Tips | PentaxForums.com

Second, the OS switch. This switch engages Optical Image Stabilization. This type of image stabilization is found on Canon and Nikon systems and is believed by many to be the better choice of image stabilization at telephoto focal lengths.

Third, is the lock switch. This prevents the lens from extending itself when not in use. A great feature that I love!

Lastly, this lens is a great walk-around, all-in-one lens. If you go traveling or on a short trip where camera bulk is an issue, this is the lens for you.
