I am selling my DA* 60-250 ED (IF) lens.

This is in excellent condition (near mint) with no marks on the body or glass. Optics are very clean. Both focus and zoom work smoothly just as new.

i have owned this from new, and it has always been looked after well. The SDM has always worked flawlessly and still does today. Complete with original box; hood; and soft case.

I am only selling because of a recently purchased DFA 70-200.

It has not had the baffle modification done, but works perfectly on both aps-c and FF cameras.

Photos available if required.

I am looking for 500 which will include insured, signed for delivery within the UK

I sold my 60-250mm f/4 as I wanted the D-FA 70-200mm.

Really regret it, fabulous lens on both a full frame and crop body, I miss the extra reach ... I have to take my Sigma 100-300mm f/4 now which feels twice as heavy.
No equipment list here but thanks for taking an interest. My Flickr

Superb lens - great price! If you're after one of these then don't take a chance that you might save a few quid on someone else's copy on Eeek-Bay, personally I'd take Peters!

I didn't sell mine when the Pentax D-FA*70-200/2.8 was launched simply because I didn't want the extra weight. I've been toying with selling mine for the launch of the D-FA70-200/4.0 but I'll need to be convinced by incredible quality images, as the extra reach at both ends of the DA*60-250 can be very useful and its IQ has never disappointed me

Thanks for the recommendation Lennybloke I did think about keeping it as a lighter version than the 70-200 f4 I now own, but I find I use a tripod so much these days the weight difference is not that important to me.

Less than a day to go now on ebay. No bids so far but a fair few watchers.

Only 400!?? This is a high quality telephoto f4 zoom lens - which combined with the 1.4 becomes an 84-350mm f5.6....

The value of any item is only what someone is prepared to pay for it. I posted this here for 500 a month ago with no interest.

I hope to get more than 400 for it, we shall see.

Nope. It has long gone to a new home.
