Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 "Art" lens - Beautiful lens, excellent condition with some very minor scuffs showing on the barrel: $550.

Pentax DA* 60-250mm **SOLD**
It has a damaged tripod foot which needs to be replaced. I will be listing once the foot has been replaced and unit cleaned. However, if someone wants to lowball me and save me the hassle of shipping it out to Precision Camera, feel free to PM me an offer. It is in otherwise good condition and a great lens.
[EDIT] Since there have been a few folks interested in the 60-250 let me add some details:
As mentioned above, the tripod foot has a tiny broken metal 'cleat'. The reason I had planned to send to Precision was to get a new foot. I don't see any way from US to just order the foot, but I'm also too lazy/busy to do a bunch of calling around. I figured the lens can always use a cleaning at the same time. But, there is nothing wrong with the image quality and I am adding links to pictures taken today here. Also added pics of the lens itself and the broken cleat. Finally, the plastic grooves where the lens hood attaches are slightly damaged (flimsy plastic). The hood is undamaged and still attaches fine, but I would advise against putting it in the reverse mount position (where the hood reverses back along the barrel) because it is very hard to get off then.
Lens comes with front and rear caps (original), lens hood and soft carry bag. I'll also throw in a 67mm-77mm filter ring adapter in case you want to use any 77mm ND filters or polarizers, or hook on a Lee filter holder.

60-250 pics attached

The bottom two pics show the tripod foot with its broken cleat. the tape in the bottom two pics is so I don't lose the little metal cleat. Someone skilled in such things might be able to repair it themselves with an industrial strength glue.
Also what looks like hair around the rear lens opening is just tiny flecks of the soft 'felt' they use inside the rear of the barrel (I assume for smooth zoom operation but I'm just guessing - never noticed it before).

Link to full size phot sample jpegs:
https://flic.kr/s/aHsm6VFZYz

These jpegs are exported from Lightroom. Photos were completely unedited in LR (and no sharpening applied on export).
I took two pixel shift shots (with K3ii) on a tripod, one at 60mm F11 and one at 250mm F4, using live view (CDAF) focus. These were imported in to DCU for processing the pixel shift (some motion in the leaves) and then exported as TIF to LR, so exif data may not look right for those two.
I took two handheld shots, one at 80mm F7.1 and one at 250mm F4, using traditional viewfinder (PDAF) focus.

Here are some older samples of work done with the 60-250 (a little bit of post-production work does wonders):
