DA 17-70 f4 SDM Works like a champ! 160 OBO

For sale DA 17-70 f4 SDM. Was 175.00 USD Or Best Offer, Now 160.00 USD OBO with US Shipping included. Out of US please PM me for shipping rates, I will discount US cost from overseas shipping costs.
Like New withhood, pouch, and caps. Hood missing window piece for CPL rotation, otherwise fine. SDM fast, quiet and accurate. Wonderful at the wide end and good at 70mm also. Glass is nearly perfect, light dust only.
Focal length is pretty much covered by other lenses I own. This is a great deal but I need to reduce my lens numbers. Don't believe the review numbers that are skewed by SDM failure. This lens can make amazing images.

Here are a few from my 500px page taken with this lens and my K-50. Owl's Head Northern beach by Thomas Needham - Photo 236705009 / 500px
Heirloom Broccoli by Thomas Needham - Photo 236704657 / 500px

This is 75.00 less than similar at Adorama and 144.00 less than the equivalent Sigma 17-70. And they charge for shipping on used items.
I ship quickly via USPS and insure items so no returns unless damaged on the way.
Payment by Paypal or mailed money order only. Thanks

So, the TC is not the Pz-AF MC4, correct? It looks like it says Tamron-F AF, and I don't think that is reviewed here, is it?

Bump for the 17-70! A nice WA and walk around for APSC. 249 for one at Adorama while a used Sigma is 319. Save money here!

One of the best and least appreciated lens Pentax designed. I am enjoying mine. F4 wide open sharp from 17 to 70. One of my friends who is long time Canon fan, was impressed with the pics from this lens and wanted to borrow my Pentax setup to try it out.

Good luck with the sale.

I once had a copy of this lens but it now is with my Step-Niece? (Step brother's daughter) She loves it. I really think this is an under appreciated lens. The IQ is very good. The SDM has never been a problem for her.
