Always on the lookout for a bargain, I was browsing for sale ad's on a local site and spied a DA*50-135 lens for sale. It was at a pawn shop 100km away.

This morning I drove there and the shop specialized in automotive parts and power tools with a small display case for cameras and lenses.

I asked to see the lens and had my K5 with me. As I had guessed, the SDM wasn't working and the lens hood was missing.

Other than that the glass was clean and no scratches and it had a Hoya UV(c) filter and a Hoya PL-CIR polarizing filter on it.

The owner of the store asked me what I thought, I told him that the autofocus wasn't working and the lens hood was missing.

'Make me an offer' he said. '$150 tax in' I said. "you've got a deal' he said!

Wow, no counter offer! and now I am the owner of a mate to my DA*16-50.

First order of business is to convert it to screw drive (like I did with my 16-50) and then find a lens hood.

I think I got a bargain.

There is no one so lonely as a person without their PENTAX........I said that!
