Pentax DA* 16-50/2.8 - $325 USD Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax DA* 16-50/2.8 - $325 USD

Asking Price
325.00 USD

Item Location
Irvine, CA (United States)

Item Description
I'm a new Pentaxian and acquired a 16-50 with my K-3 (I traded my Fuji X100s kit for this combo). However, I am not fond of the weight of the lens - especially after using mirrorless for many years.

The lens works great, albeit, some squeaking during focus. I have discussed this in detail here

Most of my recent pictures after switching from Fuji X100s to Pentax have been taken with the 16-50 and can be found here

As a result, the price reflects a significant discount in case UncleVanya's services are required in the future to convert the lens from SDM to screwdrive.

I am including the following:

- 16-50/2.8 lens
- generic 77mm front cap
- pentax rear cap
- new EW-83J lens hood (I literally just got it yesterday and it has not left my house)

Note that the lens hood is third-party and designed for a Canon lens, however, the bayonet mount is identical, but would require some shaving down with a dremel to get the petals to align properly. As it is, the lens hood is offset about 20 degrees, so the hard stops need to be shaved down to get it to turn a bit more.

Pictures of the items for sale:

The lens is quite sharp, but just a bit too big for me. After coming from m4/3, Fuji X100s, Sony NEX, Olympus 4/3 - I really don't want to lug a heavy kit again. I'd like to fit my entire kit inside my Crumpler 3 Million Dollar Home bag...and with the 16-50 on the K3, I can't have any other lenses!

I have 100% positive feedback as 'flipmack' on FredMiranda, mu-43, fourthirdsphoto, DPR, and eBay (as 02.5protege5).

The lens is already sealed away in a box, ready to ship.

Note that I'll be on business travel to France starting 9/18 until 9/24, so if the lens doesn't sell before then, I won't be able to ship out until my return.
