For Sale: DA* 55 1.4 and DA 70 2.4 (K 135 2.5 sold)
Listed: 09-27-2019, 12:45 PM Total Price: 115 Currency: USD Item Location: United States City or State: Pittsburgh, PA Shipping Destinations: Continental U.S. Only 

DA* 55 1.4
Purchased new from Adorama in 2016. Lens is in immaculate condition and has been my #1 choice for portrait sessions since I purchased it. I bought a D-FA 50 that I'll be using instead of this, but I think I'll regret the portability of this lens in comparison... the D-FA 50 is huge and much heavier in comparison. Focus has been spot-on with my K-1 and K-5II and has not shown any SDM issues. Original hood, caps, and Pentax S90-100 pouch included.
$400










DA 70 2.4
Perfection condition, aftermarket hood, caps, and step up ring included. I've only used this fella a few times as I ended up getting a FA 77 not long after getting it. Brilliantly sharp wide open. This is a lot of lens in a tiny package... almost regretting posting it due to its tiny size and portability factor but I haven't used it in over a year so it's time to pass it on.
$275








SOLD
K 135 2.5
Loved this lens... took some of my favorite shots of my kids with it. Really beautiful rendering that you don't see with new lenses. I picked up a Samyang of the same focal length that I'm using instead. Please note, the focus is tighter than I would expect, but it helps tremendously when shooting wide open. I've never used another K 135, but it's noticeably tighter than any other K or M lens I've used.
$115
















Payment method accepted: Paypal

Shipping: $15 USPS to continental US only. Fully insured.

Anyone that has bought a lens from me can attest to the fact that I go over the top with bubble wrap to ensure your lens is delivered in pristine shape.

Returns accepted if item is received in unquestionably different condition than described.

That 55 is a good looking lens. If I didn't already have the 85/1.4, I'd be interested in this!

The 55 is an amazing lens on APSC and extremely good on FF. A bit of vignette until you stop down to F/2.8. Whoop-dee do!

It really is... there's a certain peacefulness to it for portraits vs the sharpness of the DFA 50 1.4. It's so light in comparison, too. Your 85 1.4 isn't weather resistant though (unless you went in the future and got the Pentax D-FA 85)!

You're 100% that it is not WR! I will not take that baby out in the least bit of rain. I know the K-1 is WR as well, but that's what the spare K-3 body with the old 18-50 & 50-200mm WR lenses are for! :-)
