MPB US has a couple of SMC DA 18-50mm f/4-5.6 DC WR lenses for 49 dollars
Posted By: ChristianRock, 03-30-2021, 10:34 AM

They are labelled HD but pictures show they are SMC. Back when they were 129 dollars I emailed MPB and they confirmed that they are SMC and said they would fix the listing... which they never did. And people never bought the lenses...

I already bought the HD version (no regrets! I would buy it over the SMC version any day, I compared results....) but if someone needs a cheap WR kit lens with a DC motor, that is also retractable, to have "just in case it rains or something", and don't want to spend more than a Grant, this might be what you need.

I'm sure he'll add it to the main post later, but in the meantime for people wondering.

I've never bought from MPB before but I am a regular scanning their Pentax stock

*Note the listing and description says HD DA but the picture shows the SMC version. I'm not sure which is accurate. I don't know if they use actual pictures of the item.

Thanks! I just bought the last one. Can't go wrong for that price.

Ah yes I was going to add the link to the original post as I had forgotten, but for a long while it wouldn't let me edit or reply. And after that I forgot...

Yeah I'm glad people here were able to jump on them.
