Prodigital now has the 16-85!
Posted By: bdery, 04-20-2015, 06:25 AM

I got an email from the fellows at prodigital2000 informing me that they now stock the 16-85, and at a pertty good price!

Pentax HD Da 16 85mm F 3 5 5 6 Ed DC WR Zoom Lens | eBay

I just got mine from CameraCanada, for an excellent price too, but I'm passing the information along.

$689.99 with free shipping? That's quite a deal considering that it's $60 more at B&H.

Yes. just give me a few moments in front of my home computer I took comparative pictures next to the Sigma 17-70 (a lens with many similarities) and the 18-55 (the lens that the 16-85 replaces in my stable). I also took pictures at an outdoors outing that Idid with my family yesterday.

I can already say I'm very, very happy with the lens.

That's good to hear.... I like people who are happy with their lenses.

I don't end up thinking "This dude needs some serious help." I mean, what's not to like about a lens, any lens?

I've never met a lens that wasn't good for something.

I've even got the condenser from an enlarger i use as a paper weight.

Here's my take on the 16-85mm for those interested. I won't double-post, and decided to publish in the correct section
