[SOLD] Pentax-A 35-70mm f4 Macro - a highly rated lens! (Worldwide) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax-A 35-70mm f4 Macro - a highly rated lens!

Asking Price

Item Location
Kearney, Nebraska USA

Item Description
This is a really great daytime "walkabout lens" on a Pentax DSLR,
giving you a 35mm equiv. zoom range of 52-105mm plus a terrific 1:2.7
macro on the 70mm end!
It is a very highly rated fixed aperture zoom lens: Pentax Lens Review Database - SMC Pentax-A 35-70mm F4 Lens Reviews and has been called "a real gem" and a "Really, REALLY good performer"

The "A" lens, as you no doubt know, is ESPECIALLY convenient to use on the Pentax DSLRs, giving you AV mode in addition to what you would get
with a "M" lens. It is also lightweight for a zoom.

Just an FYI: People who own this lens have also discovered that if they get a Pentax-F 1.7x AF adapter this lens "suddenly A35-70 becomes 60-120mm
lens with limited AF capability and 1:1.6 macro...And what surprised me most: Image quality remain still very good!"

This lens is in excellent optical and mechanical condition, but is
cosmetically only "good" with minor chips around the filter ring. I
have a detail pic showing that, below.

No additional fees (paypal or otherwise). Will ship worldwide (fast or
cheap - your choice). Email me for a quote to your country.
Shipping in the continental U.S. should be $9 for Priority Mail.

This lens comes at a "pre-negotiated" price of $40. I'm confident that
it will sell to some lucky buyer at this price, so no offers please.
(I have a big purchase to hopefully make this weekend, which is why
I'm selling stuff that does not get enough use from me. My items are
priced to sell quickly, so take advantage! )

Are you still able to put on filters even though it's cracked? Thanks
