[SOLD] DA* 16-50mm and 50-135mm

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
DA* 16-50mm and 50-135mm

Asking Price
USD 1,300

Item Description
Included:
DA* 50-135mm 1:2.8 with 67mm Heliopan clear filter (the $80 one)
Purchased Jan 2008. As always been used with a filter on. Mint by all accounts.
Box, pouch, warranty card,...all included
This lens is very sharp including at 50mm and is to the IQ level of a prime. I had the store checked several and choose the best one

DA* 16-50mm 1:2.8 with 77mm Hoya Pro1 clear filter (the $70 one)
Purchased Feb 2009. As always been used with a filter on and has been barely used.
Mint by all accounts and still under the two years Canadian Warranty and the One year International Warranty
Box, pouch, warranty card,...all included
This lens is sharp and does NOT have any of the centering problems that affected some lenses of the same model

I am of two minds about selling these as it is a beautiful set and will not lower the price. But since I have started shooting film a few months back, I have stopped using digital and somewhat I cannot see me using consistently a zoom anymore. Too much MF on small K primes.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?
Yes

Are you selling or trading this item?
Selling

Item Condition
Used
Mint

Item Location
Burnaby Canada

Shipping Charge
Canada Post insured at cost

Shipping Services
Canada Post

Shipping Destinations
U.S, U.K, Canada, Australia

Accepted Payment Types
PayPal

Additional Details
I am selling these as a lot as I have been using them together with two K20D mounted (heavy but convenient setup) - unless two forum member with good feed-back wants to make a firm commitment to buy one each.

Payment by PayPal.
I will ship to confirmed address once payment has cleared.
I think that because of the weight and size of the package it makes more sense for a North American buyer but if you want to carry the shipping and any duties and taxes I will ship to EU or Australia.

Please send me a private message if interested in the item!

Luc, can you post some images? To confirm: they are sharp wide open across the focal length range on both lenses?

I may be interested: I am considering selling some item(s) and would prefer to discuss via PM on this one. It's a tad complicated...

Regards,
Marc

Yes they are.
I have posted many pictures on my web site taken with these lenses.
I will post pictures of the lenses themselves later on.

Cheers,

Luc

Do you have the price in Canadian dollars? Also, I'm local so I can pick them up.
Thanks,

Thanks,
If you pay cash, bank draft or transfer to my RBC account than CAD1,400 would do as bank exchange CAD to USD as 1.15 on your side (1,300>1,495).

I would love to buy the 16-50mm if somebody else wants the 50-135mm.

A sale is completed pending payment and pick-up, with two more local forum members ready to purchase if the first sale fell through.
Thank you to all that expressed an interest, I did not expected things to go that fast.

Cheers,

Luc
