[SOLD] Pentax DA 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 ED AL IF

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax DA 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 ED AL IF

Asking Price
US $360

Item Description
Excellent zoom, with very good reviews on amazon and pentaxforums. It appears to be the same as the Tamron 18-250mm, except that it has Pentax SMC.

I bought it from Willoughby's on March 17th this year. It has some signs of wear on the hood mount (and some barely visible on a side of the hood itself)--see pics. (Other people have complained it wasn't quite a breeze to take the hood off.) Some bits of dust behind the front element--I got into some dusty conditions in Napoli, Italy. It isn't extremely difficult to clean the front element--although it's not worth it, since the bits of dust don't affect the images at all. I leave it to the potential buyer to make that decision. Other than that, the lens is in great shape and takes beautiful photos. Absolutely no scratches on the lens. (And the module that DxO recently added to their raw converter brings its output to the next IQ level!)

The lens comes with caps and everything else (original box, warranty, manual), including a Dolica 62mm UV filter, which, for what it is, has served me well.

I have a copy of this lens and it's really a nice lens to have to go everywhere as a travel lens.

I think I've changed my mind. No longer for sale. (Why should I sell such a good lens?)
