Pentax DA* 60-250mm F4.0

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax DA*60-250mm F4.0

Asking Price
550.00 USD

Item Location
Toronto (Canada)

Item Description
Lens, foot, hood and caps supplied. No pouch or box, and priced to move per below. I'm just not using it, so someone may as well do so. Ideal for a K-1 FF conversion! Non-smoking home. Results are wonderful, and I will be sad to see this go (It's my last Pentax AF lens).

Please excuse the lousy product shots I just needed to get it done. If you need better pics, these can be provided.

The good:
Extremely sharp across the frame in all focal lengths from F5 onward, and pretty good at F4, also. Colour and contrast are signature, and it is built like a tank.

Cosmetically, the lens is in good condition. Lens glass is clean, and only small specks of dust internally. No fungus, etc. Zoom is smooth.

Barrel of the lens is clean, some brassing to collar rotation knob and tripod foot removal screw, but fully functional.

There is no bad; it's a great lens.

The ugly:
Broken Pentax 67mm front cap, and functional Nikon 67mm Cap supplied.
Hood also supplied, connects securely with the lens barrel, but part of the hood connector tab is broken off. The filter tab on the hood is missing.

When I bought it (four years ago), it squeaked during AF, and it still does. SDM otherwise fine. Was used by another Pentaxian this summer with no issues. AF was pretty much right on with my then K-5IIs.

Please drop me a PM if interested. If you are in Canada, we can work out a better Canadian dollar price.

Please do not be concerned with my last feedback rating here. This was for one adverse transaction, where I do not agree the buyer feedback, I've not had any other poor experiences here in nearly 10 years.
