A great deal to be had here! I was expecting to sell this for more, but there are some sales on so I've lowered the price accordingly...

300 including RMSD. That includes the UV filter.

SRS are still asking 479, which seems to be more 'the norm'.

It's in fantastic condition. Bought from SRS by a forum member in March 2012, I paid 400 a year ago. Oh well! It's had the UV filter on it since. The only signs of use are some small marks on the lens cap and hood.

Supplied complete with box, pouch and all documentation.

I love the lens; the fact that I can go from a portrait at 50mm/f2.8 to a sunset at 17mm/f9 and all sorts in-between has been fabulous. But, if I'm completely honest, I find the lens heavier than I'd like for walking around with all day. Please bear in mind that I don't use any kind of wrist or neck strap with my camera so I have to keep it in my hand all the time. And I'm a wimp! And it's no heavier than the equivalent from Pentax or Tamron.

Photozone rated this lens very highly (albeit the test was done on a Canon body) link.

Here is a link to a few shots taken with the actual lens.

Okay, so house sale and moving meant this was put to one side, however it is still for sale.

Any thoughts on the focusing speed?

Hi, are you comparing it to anything in particular? I have found it to be very quick and quiet, certainly quicker and quieter than my other lenses.

Hope that helps.
