Pentax DA* SMC 16-50mm f2.8 - Priced to Sell, Make an offer

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax DA* SMC 16-50mm f2.8

Asking Price
225.00 USD

Item Location
Pennsylvania (United States)

Item Description
Pentax DA* 16-50mm 2.8 SMC version.

Lens body is in excellent condition with little signs of use. Focus and zoom rings function smoothly.

Lens elements are very clean with no scratches. A lens filter was always used to protect the front element. No dust in lens that would show in photos.

This lens does display sleepy SDM focus motor syndrome. When the lens is used regularly the SDM starts up without hesitation but if the lens sits for a while then the SDM focus motor will take some time to warm up and start working properly. The focus motor has behaved this way for many years but always seems to get back to working normally after some use. Keep using the SDM or you can convert this lens to screw drive, there is a DIY thread about converting this lens to screw drive in Pentax Forums.

I am the original owner of this lens and has used it semi-professionally until the K-1 was released.
I am now shooting mostly full frame and this lens sees very little use. It's excellent for those looking to get started with a light weight kit.

Lens comes with Front and Rear lens caps, Original lens hood and pouch.

Looks like the lens is sold, even though it's not marked as sold. I saw feedback posted for the seller on July 15 that links to this post. I was seriously thinking of buying this too!

I totally agree. I was eyeing a DA 12-24mm for a while and I think it is sold but the thread has not been marked "sold" so it still appears in the active sale listing. A bit frustrating. Though my wallet/wife probably are very happy these are no longer for sale.

Hi all, my apologies, I thought I had marked this as sold, apparently I did not. Thank you for your interest in the lens, sorry for the inconvenience.
