DA 15 + 21mm Ltd. (325), NEW HD 55-300mm WR

Hi, I've overspent on lenses recently and need to finance my post-graduation trip!

On offer:

New HD 55-300mm WR - 225

I got this lens as a gift a few days ago, and it has not left the box since (aside from for the picture below). I have no use for it as I already own the non-WR version, and WR is not critical for me. The lens came from a clearance and can still be returned, which I'm happy to do, but perhaps someone might appreciate a new lens for a cheaper price. I believe there should be a 2 year warranty reclaimable at John Lewis - simply put, you're getting a new lens for a cheaper price.

If anyone is on a lookout for the even cheaper SMC version instead, I can let go of that one for 125.

DA 21mm Ltd. - 225 (or together with the 15mm Ltd. = 325)

Not much to say - the lens is in excellent condition. Very sharp.

DA 15mm Ltd. - 140 (or together with the 21mm Ltd. = 325)

This one is a little more tricky. The lens is slightly decentered, and the very left side of the image is softer than the rest. It will not be great for landscapes (for those I used the 21mm as a combo with the 15), but you can work around the issue. I'll be happy to discuss in more detail through messages. Here's a link to some images taken with the lens: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/15pua7wnblhnxha/AABZPb-wye4PqhX0hDXHs_X_a?dl=0

I'd say I've been overall happy with the lens, but it should probably go with the 21mm. I'm also on the lookout for a 16-50mm, so I will no longer need the FOV. Still unsure whether I should keep it though!

Who is it for? If you don't shoot at that FOV all that often, but want the 15mm option, and an Ltd. to experiment with for fun (as I did), it will be perfect.

Hi James,
15mm received, I don`t really notice any issues with images at F4 or F8 (which is all I`ve tried up to ow).

Thanks for an easy transaction...
