For Sale: Pentax 16-45mm f/4.0 SMC PDA ED AL Zoom Lens

Asking Price
USD 250 or Best Offer

Item Description
Hi all,

The lens is clean and barely used (mostly indoors). Will ship it in the original box. This is my first "test" sale on the forum. If all goes well, I will put up my K20D with Battery Grip, DA* 16-50, FA 50 f/1.4, AF 360 Flash and a Tamron 70-300 Macro for sale. I expect the buyer to pay me through Western Union. You can send me the payment once you receive the item and are satisfied with it. Hence I will ship to members whom I can trust on this forum.

Best regards,
Keith

A bit more info about the lens -

I find it to be very sharp but not as good as my FA 50mm f/1.4 or the DA* 16-50mm f/2.8. I have problems getting it to lock focus below 20 mm in non optimal lighting. Works fine when used with my flash which has an auto focus assist light.

Distortion and Vignetting at the wide end is heaps better controlled than my DA* which is surprising.

Other than the frustrating auto-focus issue at the wide end, it's a pretty decent lens.

Sample Pictures -

Taken with the 16-45mm and the 50mm. You can easily work out which ones are 16-45 (the dunes). BTW, this was the only time I took it outdoors.

Pictures of the lens-





Cheers,
Keith

I suspect the Western Union stipulation may be putting some people off, because this is a very attractive listing otherwise.

"I suspect the Western Union stipulation may be putting some people off, because this is a very attractive listing otherwise. "

I guess that is because of cost wise.

The seller is willing to ship the lens, wait until the buyer receives and tests it and then the buyer will send the money, which leaves the seller very very vulnerable.

Due to the poor response to this listing, I am sending it to a friend in the US who will list the item on his eBay account.

This listing is now CLOSED.
