Item Description
Pentax HD DA Limited Zoom 20-40mm F/2.8-4.0:

Up for sale is my DA Limited 20-40. This is a beautiful light metal lens that reminds me a bunch of the SMC Takumars in the build quality. When people talk about this lens' bokeh - believe it, it is the real deal. Also, the HD coatings are more resistant to flare than the SMC coatings, by a decent amount. I found it to be a versatile lens that could do group portraits and landscape shooting.

Condition: The exterior has some nics and a few small spots where the anodized paint is gone on the body (so you see the metal color). I included the picture that captures the majority of the marks. The cap and stock hood has some scuffs.
The glass is clean inside and out. There are no issues on the glass.

Performance: This lens performed extremely well for what I asked it to do. I did some landscape photos with it (included in the pictures, taken at F22 at sunrise) and I found it at that aperture to be less noisy and sharper than the DA SMC 15 at F22. Stopped down it performed extremely well for group portraits: sharp, smooth, and dreamy bokeh. This lens really is a gem. It renders similar to the Pentax K 30mm 2.8.

What it comes with: Lens, original Pentax front and read caps, Silver DA 20-40 hood (it is what came with it), a 55mm aftermarket hood, and a Hoya 55mm PL filter.

$425 shipped to the US.

Get a chance to snag this terrific lens. I am selling it because I am pairing down my mass of lenses. However, this is sharper and better with colors than the K30 2.8 I am keeping in this FOV range. Bump!
