[SOLD] FS: Pentax 35-70 f3.5-4.5

Bought this lense about three months ago and thought it would be just wonderful to finally have something autofocus. I was wrong. My primes are faster, and I'm used to zooming-by-walking. I hardly ever use the zoom, because I forget that I can, and when I do use this lense, I use it in MF mode. One nice feature: Macro! This is where I have actually used this lense, but my 28mm f2 also does beautiful macro work.

Now, I'm a starving college student with far too many hobbies, and I want to resell this, $50 shipped to the 48 states, $55 shipped to the other 2, $65 shipped to Canada. If you wanted to trade something, I wouldn't mind other prime lenses, or a flash. I do not need a 28, 50 or 135mm lense. I think the price is fair, if it's actually worth alot more than that, someone let me know please (found one going on ebay for approx US $82, ending in two hours. I do not remember what I paid for this.)

This thing is in good shape, if you can see the tape on the rear lense cap, it's on there to provide a more snug fit. This lense comes with both caps. I've honestly used it less than 10 times.

Still for sale! Two people claimed to want it, neither ever got back to me. (I'll admit, I didn't check my pm's for two days, but I've been checking daily since, and will continue to check daily)

I have one and really like it, for what it's worth. I enjoy using it for portraits, where I've found it useful in smaller spaces but still have the wider part of the range working for me to create some space. I've found it very sharp as well, and it's well-built. Good luck with the sale.

I posted a quick portrait to show what the lens can do - help this poor addict!
