These don't come up very often and for good reason.
IMO optically the lens is only a hairs breath away from the Pentax DA* 50-135mm but has the added advantages of a longer reach and faster AF speed.

It is in superb condition and comes boxed with front/rear caps, hood and soft case.

£400 plus postage .. lens will be sent once payment has cleared.

If I didn't have one already I'd be in for this like a flash ... superb lens and IMHO superior to the 50-135 for the AF alone.

Any chance of a 25% down followed by 12 monthly payments of £25.00, Mike?

Yours hopefully,

Bummer, I don't think I can spend that amount of money. I'll think about it.

It's not the fact you want credit that I find cheeky ... it's that you want it interest free

You remain as 'sharp', if not sharper, than the optics of the lens in question, Your Grace

By way of an apology, I am prepared to amend my offer to include an inflation/RPI-busting 5% return on the principal sum.

I await your polite response with considerable interest

Covetously yours,

Cheeky Chappie

aaaarghh....now that i spent all my reserve money on K85/1.8 this appears to taunt my LBA! Mike, please rethink selling this lens, give it time on your camera and then after 2-3 months come back here to sell it
I've run out of funds currently

Just looking around the web and have been finding generally positive reviews! It does make me wonder why Mike-P is selling this lens.

Not on sale at SRS at the moment.

Twitter | Someone said time-lapse?
Pentax K5 | Samsung N9005 | DA 18-55 WR | DA 35 2.4 | DA 50 1.8
Tamron 10-24 SP | Tamron 90 2.8 Macro | Tamron 70-300 Macro
Samyang 85 1.4 ...and a few other manual lenses older than me.

1. I don't use it so may as well sell.
2. I have a Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 EX should I need it.

It won't be .. like all their decent lenses (180mm macro, 100-300mm f4) Sigma discontinued it months ago.

Cheers for the info! I'm hoping to secure a 70-200 in the future. Best of luck in selling this fine piece of glass!
