Found a little gem.

Hi there, I'm new to pentax forums.
I've owned pentax gear for many years and collected a lot of lenses, but i think I've found a gem. The f 28mm 2.8 is a great little lens. Found it on gumtree with three other lenses for $80, to good to be true, in its original box in new condition. The pictures I've taken with this lens are soooo sharp and colorfull. Has anyone else found this lens to be a real keeper.

Hello and welcome

Congratulations on your lenses. If it the Pentax-F 28mm f/2.8 you're referring to?

Hi! Great catch! I have only heard good things about the F 28mm. At that price, its a steal! Enjoy!

pentax f 28mm f/2.8, I've posted a pick in my uploads of my local beach, it's not the best looking lens but what it lacks in looks it makes up for in very high quality picks.🖒

Did you get it with a lens hood? You can add a lens hood to make it look a little more professional - and a good tight lens hood might even help against flare, and increase the overall contrast a little.
You can find some hoods online for under $10, just make sure it fits on the filter threads
