[SOLD] DA 12-24mm $550 or trade for DA15mm Ltd. (Worldwide)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
DA 12-24mm price drop - $525 (found this lens's replacement, must buy soon before it's gone!)
Asking Price
525.00 USD

Item Location
Seattle, WA

Item Description
Pentax DA 12-24mm with caps and hood, no pouch, no box. Asking 525.00, including shipping in the US, negotiable shipping worldwide.

ETA: Several people have asked for closer photographs of the front element to show them the coating inconsistencies I mentioned below. Here are several, but the outcome is, you can't see the small spots unless you exhale onto the element. Mountain=mole hill here - and my compulsive full disclosure policy bites me in the butt again

Front element 1
Front element 2
Front element 3
Front element 4

The glass looks great (some very small 'water spot' type coating inconsistencies on the front element that have no effect on any photos I've taken), the barrel is spotless, the hood has very very minor marks on the exterior. The metal portion of the hood mount flange has been engraved with an identification number, not very visible unless you're holding the lens in your hands off the camera (see photo below).

Because of the cosmetic flaw of the engraving, I was able to get a good deal on ebay for the lens (25.00 more than I'm asking for it here). Alas, it front-focuses on my K-x and since the K-x can't correct per-lens, I'm reselling it. The front-focus is very minor, but I'm a picky old curmudgeon when it comes to sharpness

If you have a K20 or a K7 with that marvelous ability to adjust focus per-lens, this lens could be a steal for you

You are right about seeing a lens with the MTSS engraving on it. I purchased one last year from the forms with the same engraving on it. I still have my copy, so this is another one from the same source. This is a great lens for a good price.

How very odd! Wonder who's doing the lens engraving? Mysteries of Pentax lore :P I was wondering if perhaps it was a rental and the code related to the shop inventory? Who knows

Pretty sure its an ex-member of Penn State's Media & Technology Support Services program:

Scroll down to "Cameras." Google is indeed wonderful.

Looks like this one was #6 in the series ("LW1" is the code, and "006" follows that). Does "007" turn into a knife, or add x-ray vision?
