I am selling my copy of this lens. I just do not use it enough to justify keeping it. I must be up front and honest and say it has the idiosyncratic/erratic SDM auto focussing problems between 50mm-70mm. Some days it works fine, others not.

I have never had a problem with focussing at the wide end. I am pricing the lens taking this into consideration and am asking 180 inclusive of RMSD. Comes with box, manual and lens caps and hood

A quick note on the focussing, I have the same lens and on my K-5 I had the same issue as noted by Jim here, but on the K-5IIs and the K-3 the lens focusses without a problem. I'm posting this as Jim has been very honest in mentioning this, but anyone with a K-5II variant or a K-3 may not suffer the same issues. The 17-70 is a very good lens and I would not part with mine.

Hope you don't mind me posting this Jim, just thought it might be helpful.

Don't mind at all David, it's very helpful as it may help someone if they have a K5IIs or K3 and are undecided as to whether the lens is worth buying.
