[SOLD] Pentax F 35-70mm f/3.5-4.5 Macro zoom (Worldwide)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax F 35-70mm f/3.5-4.5 Macro zoom

Asking Price
Was AU$85, now AU$75

Item Location
Tasmania, Australia

Item Description
For sale is a Pentax F35-70mm f/3.5-4.5 macro zoom. Condition is probably close to 'excellent' but I would rather understate than overstate condition. Glass is free of scratches and fungus, a tiny amount of very minor dust is visible. Aperture ring works well and blades look oil-free. Zoom works smoothly. Cosmetically there are a couple of barely visible scratches on the plastic.

Takes nice sharp pictures, not far different from primes of similar size.

Pentax F 35 - 70mm

Bump in support of a little gem of a lens. If you are reading this, jump on over to the Lens Review Database and check out what other Pentax forum members say about this fine little lens. I had a copy, sold it, regretted it and then ultimately bought another copy. With a Sigma 10-20 and a Pentax DA 55-300, this lens is a great one for filling the gap in between.

I can't believe no one's interested in this lens. I was lucky enough to purchase one from a forum member a few months ago. It's small and light, has excellent IQ, and is faster than the kit 18-55 lens. I don't shoot wide angle very often, so I like that it's got a bit more reach than the kit lens too.

Oh, and it's got a cool semi-macro feature at 70mm.

I got one too, it should be mentioned that its parfocal which means it hold focus when you zoom, and it has a rotating front element, I've always said if i see another one cheap i'm buying it. but despite saying that i haven't done it, saving my pennies for other things

Here are some pics of the lens caps as requested. The rear one is a bit hard to see but says "Pentax" at the top and "Japan" at the bottom.

Cheers,
Sam
