Following on from the Nikon 50-200mm lens posted earler, is this very useful Pentax K mount 50-200mm lens. Compatible with Samsung dSLR cameras with a K lens mount (e.g. GX-1L and GX-1S). Reserve and pickup for free or add £4.95 delivery.

Description :

Designed for exclusive use with PENTAX KAF-mount digital SLR cameras, this lens offers 4x zoom coverage in the telephoto range. The lens features an angle of view from 31.5 degrees to 8.1 degrees (equivalent in focal length from 76.5mm to 306mm in the 35mm format). As with all DA-Series lenses, this DA 50mm-200mm features a responsive "Quick-Shift Focus System" that allows photographers to instantly switch the focus mode from auto to manual with a slight twist of the focus ring. Coupled with a simple, functional design and the elimination of an aperture ring, this new mechanism considerably improves operability. The lens also incorporates an Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass lens element and two aspherical lens elements for true-to-life image reproduction and overall size reduction. The image circle in DA-series lenses is designed to perfectly match the 23.5mm x 15.7mm size of the CCD used in PENTAX digital SLRs to optimize camera performance.

Great deal if you can find one! None available in store an at least 28 days back order for delivery.

These lenses are returns and the boxes can be tatty with missing documentation (I have already had several). Great for your own use, but not so good as a gift (if you are lucky enough to find one).

where does it say that they are returns


where does it say that they are returns

It doesn't say it anywhere, but they are.

There is a returns number label stuck to the box when they are received. As I mentioned, I have already had a few of these.
The warranty card and some of the internal packaging was also missing on the examples that I received. Not a problem for your own use, but not ideal for a resale or gift item, even though they still have a full warranty.

Code 'ootd5' 5% off plus 3% quidco/topcashback etc.
If they turn out to be pants or as Snomaes is saying , return to local store as 'ex returns' is not in the on-line sales description. Save copy of page as proof.
