Kit lens that came with my K-x, bought beginning of January. Hardly ever used, just for some test shots for comparison, so it's in mint condition. I finally decided that for convenience shots the Tamron 18-250mm suits me better, and since I'm not much into telephoto I stick with my primes whenever I can anyway

Comes with the original caps, no hood as none is included originally. Also not boxed, as a kit lens it came in a compartment in the K-x box. but will of course be properly packed and wrapped.

I will consider reasonable offers on this one... well, when I say 'reasonable' I am thinking of around the 150 mark

I am amazed that you were supplied with this lens, with out a lens hood!

My DA 55-300mm not only came complete with a lens hood, but also with a ballistic nylon lens case.
I would ask Chris at SRS for clarification, as I believe that you have been sold short!

Kindest regards,

Peter

This is the cheaper L version, which doesn't have a hood (or case) supplied - and the construction isn't as good as the other version.

Optically it's the same as the standard 55-300, the main difference is the mount is plastic not metal, it comes without a lens hood and is supplied with the K-x kit.

In all other respects it performs just as well as a standard DA 55-300.
