HD DA 55-300/4-5.8 WR (sold: FA 77, FA 43, DA 21, DA 18-55 WR)

I have up for sale a number of Pentax autofocus lenses.
Shipping is from New Jersey via UPS, includes insurance, and requires a signature; for one lens it's a flat $15 to anywhere in the USA, but if you buy two or more lenses I'll ship them free. This map shows expected time to destination.
All product photos are of the actual lenses for sale, and all sample photos were taken with my K-30 (APS-C). As far as I can see, none of these lenses has any fungus, haze, or oil on the aperture blades. All the apertures work properly, all the focusing rings work smoothly, and autofocus works properly (possibly with some in-camera microadjustment). I have tried to be conservative in describing the glass, as I have not sold lenses before.
Payment can be via PayPal.
Returns will be accepted within 7 days of receipt, buyer pays return shipping.

HD Pentax-DA 55-300mm f/4-5.8 ED WR - $240 (pending) (reviews - product photos - lens sample thread)
Includes: front and rear caps, hood, pouch, box, paperwork
Condition: Glass is very clean, no scratches that I can see, though rear element may have one spot on it (I can't tell whether it's on or below the surface). Front cap has some scratches. Barrel looks great. Zoom ring works smoothly.
Comments: Purchased used from B&H in June for the express purpose of photos at Disney's Animal Kingdom.

smc Pentax-DA 21mm f/3.2 AL Limited (black) - $225 SOLD (reviews - product photos - lens sample thread)
Includes: front and rear caps, hood, pouch, box
Condition: Glass is very clean, no scratches that I can see. Front cap has some paint loss on the edges. Barrel looks great.
Comments: One of my most-used lenses when hiking in the forest -- nice wide field of view, light and unobtrusive. And of course, nearly unparalleled for starbursts... as in photos like this one and this one. Just keep the field curvature in mind and you'll be fine.


smc Pentax-DA 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL WR - $60 SOLD (reviews - product photos - lens sample thread)
Includes: front cap, generic rear cap, hood
Condition: Glass is very clean, no scratches that I can see. I think I could safely describe this one as "excellent" condition.
Comments: Purchased new in kit with my K-30 three years ago. If you're buying a K-70 and need a kit lens but don't want the size or the cost of the 18-135, then look no further.


smc Pentax-FA 77mm f/1.8 Limited (black, made in Japan) - $650 SOLD (reviews - product photos - lens sample thread)
Includes: front and rear caps, B+W UV/haze filter, pouch
Condition: This lens has one nick I know of on the front element, from when I got too close with a rocket blower; you can see it on the left side of the third product photo, on the side closer to the teal dot. I know it looks like there is another scratch to the right of that, closer to the center, but looking at it from multiple angles I get the feeling it must actually be below the surface somehow. The front cap has some scratches. Everything else looks quite clean.
Comments: The lens I said I would never sell (except to get the silver version), and yet, here we are. What more can I really say about this lens that hasn't been said already by the fine community here? Photos I've taken with this lens include this one.


smc Pentax-FA 43mm f/1.9 Limited (black, made in Japan) - $431.90 SOLD (reviews - product photos - lens sample thread)
Includes: front and rear caps, hood, Hama sky 1A filter, pouch
Condition: Glass is very clean, no scratches that I can see. Front cap has some slight scratches. Barrel looks great except for a nick on the bottom edge of the aperture ring; you can see it near the top of the fourth product photo.
Comments: The Limited that started it all. I mostly used this indoors in place of the Rokinon 35 when I felt autofocus would be needed; I'm sure it would be far more versatile on a K-1. Photos I've taken with this lens include this one and this one.

It was just brought to my attention that my product photo albums were not set up correctly to be visible to anyone else. I do apologize for the error and have just set the albums for all remaining lenses to Public. Here are some examples; each one is a link to the relevant album.

Updated with a new photo of the HD 55-300 WR, since someone had asked about the rear element and I finally have an actual macro lens (thanks Fenwoodian!). The spot I mentioned is in the middle of the bottom half. As you can see, it's tiny, and it doesn't show up from all angles. (I believe all other white flecks in this photo are dust picked up from the white fabric-y surface on which I was taking all of these photos.)
