My aspirations to become a serious photographer never really took off!

In fact, I've barely used my camera at over the past two years, mainly due to my other hobby, music (acoustic guitar and piano accordion) and of course the convenience these days of smart-phones with reasonable performance cameras fitted! Sacrilege!!

So, it's time to face reality, and part with my lovely DA*16-50 F2.8 lens very sad, but this will allow me to fund the re-furbishing of the reeds in my accordion without me feeling guilty and getting those 'if looks could kill' glances from my wife!!!

I bought this lens about 3 years ago, used it on holiday in Spain, and since then, it has been practically unused, except for the occasional visit out of its box to remind myself how enjoyable photography can actually be, and to re-acquaint myself with the various buttons on my K20D.

So, this lens is in first class, 'as new' condition. It's very fast and very accurate at focusing. As with a DA*55 F1.4 prime lens which I sold on this forum just before Xmas, the buyer will be getting an absolute bargain; a great lens in great condition. I hesitated in putting the DA*16-50 F2.8 up for sale, since I love the lens so much. But at least once it's sold, I will still have my beloved 18-250 Pentax lens to keep me company.

However

*** Just to confuse the issue, there is a possibility of me parting with my 18-250 Pentax lens instead, if anybody is interested in this one whichever sells first. Again, the 18-250 lens has seen very little use, probably less even than my DA*16-50 F2.8, and is also in superb 'as new' condition. It has a UV filter fitted. Should I sell this 18-250 lens first, then I would retain my beloved DA*16-50 F2.8 lens. ***


The accessories which I have for sale with the DA*16-50 F2.8 lens would cost about 170 today.
I'd like to sell everything as a complete package if possible; 500 for the lens and 80 for the accessories, but I realise this might not be acceptable to the buyer.

So, for sale . . .

#) Pentax DA 18-250 f3.5 6.3 AL[IF] 275

or (whichever sells first)

#) Pentax Lens smc DA*16-50mm F2.8 ED AL (IF) SDM 500

Apologies...I think I've had trouble replying to 'Scott'?

BTW... Both of my lenses are in perfect working order, and are totally unmarked, 'as new', and certainly don't have any dust within them. Quite simply, they've both seen very little use!

I do still have all the paperwork!!!

By the way, I had the SDM replaced after I returned from my holiday in Spain, under warranty, by the approved Pentax company Johnsons Photopia, based in Stoke.

That's a good thing!!!

Thanks salixarbour for the pm's. At the moment I'm out of this deal but I'm sure there is a bargain here for someone if they want to buy the whole package and want to get into landscape photography.
