Item Description
This is a VERY VERY REAR Pentax FA 28mm f/2.8 soft lens for pentax k mount cameras, both film and digital. This is the only wide angle soft lens pentax ever made. The nice thing is that this is a autofocus lens. With regard to the exposure, it is better to work under manual exposure mode, since it does not have a "A"-stop. That is, you set the aperture and shtter speed by yourself not by camera.
The f/2.8 stop gives most "soft" image, as shown in the 5th picture, as you stop down, the image becomes sharper and sharper. At f/8, the soft effect is minimized. The f/11 stop delivers pretty sharp image, see the last picture.
The lens is in mint condition. The optics is very clean and flawless, free of scratches or fungus. Aperture clicks at every stop clicks, no oil on blades. The barrel is very clean, shows little sign of use. It comes with original front and rear caps.
