[SOLD] Pentax SMC FA 70-200mm f/4-5.6 (US)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax SMC FA 70-200mm f/4-5.6

Asking Price
$60.00 shipped in USA

Item Location
Santa Fe, NM

Item Description
For sale is a Pentax SMC FA 70-200mm f/4-5.6 zoom lens. The lens is an able performer in the budget tele zoom class, as indicated by the reviews in our database here. Optically, I find it not quite as good as my DA 55-300mm, but it's close and virtually indistinguishable when stopped down. Great bokeh for the price. Build quality is not great—very plasticky and the barrel is somewhat loose by design. It's also somewhat heavy compared to recent models.

This lens is in good condition, though it does have a small mark on the front element toward one edge. This mark has not affected image quality in my experience. I can provide some image examples on demand. The barrel is clean and the lens functions as expected mechanically.

Included: Lens, front and rear caps (original)

Shipping: Free in USA. WW ask, but I prefer to sell in USA for now.

Pictures: Coming soon!

Photos of the lens itself, plus sharpness tests (wide open and f/8, 70mm and 200mm) and bokeh tests (all wide open, 70mm and 200mm). The sharpness test shots haven't been touched up at all.

Had one serious bite but don't have the time to deal with customs forms/post office lines at the moment. Looking for a lucky USA buyer!
