The Trio of DA*, 16-50, 50-135, 200

It's a trio of the mythical DA Stars!

I was so excited to finally get my hands on these, they really are the only lenses you could ever need.

Trio of Da* - Google Photos

I know we all say that all the time but having been bread on ancient MF glass, I was slow to warm up to auto-happiness. I held the view at the time that a single prime would ultimately be "better" (what ever that means) for everything.

That's just silly, they are tools, and different jobs require different tools, simple as that. Optically, these are great. Simple as that.

The following are for sale at $350each.

## Sold
DA* 16-50 f2.8 (s=9044236)
SDM functional, warms up after a few infinity pulls (focus in the distance then on your hand) and she is right to go. Optically it has been great, cosmetically good.



## Sold
DA* 50-135 f.28 (s=9001146)
SDM disabled. it was slow, now it's fast again. Noise isn't that bad, I've used it in sacred settings and musical performances often, all without a complaint or anyone noticing. With a meaningfully looking bit of kit people here at least are polite. Optically these things are just stupid. Just incredibly for the range you have available and the quality it produces.


## Sold
DA* 200 f2.8 (s=9031726)
SDM disabled, I paid way to much for this and argued with the original seller about a refund. Turns out he had nuked the firmware and it didn't work whilst selling it in "Great Condition...." Re-installing the lens firmware and it's a treat. Arguably a little quieter then the 50-135, but pretty much the same. Again, optically it makes the 200mm of yesteryear feel soft. Should be noted that the DA200 has an image circle that will be happy with the FF K's I will probably miss this one the most.


Further images available if you desire.

Oh, Hoods and caps included.

$15 postage within AU and $30 over the oceans. Will reserve to right to re quote postage if you end up with more then one of these (unlikely it will be much more but hey, Aus post is a weird beast)

Local pickup after work available (Strathfield)

Cheers,

DA* 200mm f2.8 is the last one standing, last but certainly not least. Fantastic optic, you'll love it

Just look how majestic the humble Havanese is presented!




That's a 5 out 5 woofs!
