Having now acquired a new DA 16-85mm in the current SRS sale, I think it makes sense to part with this lovely lens.
It has been my Standard walk about lens, and performs well.
I bought it on the forum several years ago, and I immediately had the SDM replaced and the lens serviced by Johnsons Photopia. It has never missed a beat.
I will post some images of the lens in due course.
It is in unmarked condition and comes complete with lens caps, lens hood, and has the original box. The optics are perfectly clear.

My price is VERY realistic at 125 delivered.
Lots of gear - but not a lot of idea!

Surely this is a good price for a lens that performs well and has SDM 'sorted' ?

Nothing wrong with the price imo!

It's priced so low I thought there must be something wrong with it.

I looked at getting rid of mine for the 16-85mm but I would be spending money just for the sake of it ... superb lens IMO, mine gets more use than the 16-50mm/18-135mm or 20-40mm.

There's nothing wrong with it - honest!
Perhaps I should increase the price. 😄

I think the problem has been since the K1 was released - a lot more APS-C lenses came up for sale and consequently prices have been forced downwards.

I'm pretty tempted myself.....
