[SOLD] DA 12-24mm f4 Ultra wide lens, Marketplace Listing

Item Description
Picture of the actual item to follow tonight.

IMO this is the best of the Ultra wides we have available. I've owned the Sigma 12-24mm and the 10-20mm and neither comes close to this lens in corner sharpness or overall IQ. Those lenses might be a bit cheaper, and I'm a big fan of Sigma, but they do not hold up to the Pentax at all.

Read the conclusions from Klaus on Photozone. Every lens has it's flaws but for an ultra wide, this is a stellar lens.

Mine has one issue. It's missing the hood. It fell off during a walk in the woods and I couldn't find it. Actually I've used the hood off my DA*16-50mm when I needed it and that was fine to about 13mm.

The replacement hood is available for $15.00 at B&H and is in stock. So I don't feel this detracts from the price of this lens that much.

I'm only selling it due to some personal issues that have set me back a bit lately. I'll re buy this lens next year for sure. You'll see some other listings from me in the next day or so for the same reason.

Price for a new one is around $725.00 or so.

B&H price

Amazon Price

So save yourself $100 from a reliable seller. I have the box and everything else the lens came with when it was new. Open to a reasonable offer.

When was this lens purchased? Does it still have any warranty left on it?

Please put me first in line. I will PM you this afternoon (At work and about to hop into a conference call).

I have an offer that came in just slightly ahead of you but that's not a done deal by far. PM me when you have time today. As for warranty, it's expired but the lens has not seen heavy use at all and should have man, many great years without trouble.
