[SOLD] smc Pentax DA* 50-135mm ED [IF] SDM Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
smc Pentax DA* 50-135mm ED [IF] SDM

Asking Price
$700 (US)

Item Description
Call me crazy. I'm selling this great lens (and several other great zooms - see my later posts here) in order to start using only primes in my wedding and portrait business. I've sold lenses before then realized I need 'em after all and had to buy a new lens and I know there's a chance I'll regret this later. But it seems like the right thing to do now so here's your chance to get the DA* 50-135 for a really good price.

The lens is in great shape and in perfect working condition. I have not used this lens as a general use lens. It has been used 99% for shooting wedding ceremonies (that is, in the church). I don't even use it for receptions and I have used it for only a couple portrait shoots. Although this is a DA* weather-sealed (or weather-resistant, whatever Pentax's term is), I have only used this lens outdoors once or twice and always in bright clear weather. I will provide links to a few photos that I've taken with this lens as soon as I have a minute to do so. You are welcome to ask me to take a photo to demonstrate that the lens is in great working condition.

In October 2007, I purchased the lens new from for just a few dollars less than the original list price. Current price (10-1-2009) for this lens on Amazon and at B&H Photo is $820. Click those links for full info about the specs of the lens. or go to and click on the lenses link.

Feel free to ask any questions you have by responding here OR by sending me a private message. In some cases, I may respond privately to a public question. If you would like to talk to me by phone, let me know and I'll send you my phone number by PM or email.

I will deduct these amounts from the amount that I reimburse to you after I receive the lens back.
