Item Description
My last Pentax lens. Strangely, it was one of my most used but also the one with the most troubles. Asking $175 shipped. It's being sold as is.

Pentax DA* 16-50mm SDM- Good little performer. Glass and body are clean. Comes with box, bag, manuals.
The troubles:
• The motor is going out and needs to switched to screwdrive. I can get it to wake up if I play with it and then it'll work all day but needs to be switched for reliability and convenience's sake.
• Also, there appears to be a little decentering on the right side of the images. I never noticed because I shot it f/8-f/11 most often, but testing it at 16mm f/2.8, focused to infinity, it's pretty obvious. Probably rules this out from being a lens you create large prints from, but I got some good shots out of it. See samples below for why I didn't notice.
