[SOLD] FS: Pentax-F 35-70mm US$60

SOLD

Pentax-F 35-70mm in good condition. See photos at:

Picasa Web Albums - superfuzzy - Pentax k100d ...

$60 including S&H to US. Check or Paypal is OK.

I am not a professional, but I believe this lens/glass is in very good condition.

Huh, that's a pretty old lens, I couldn't even find any reviews for it.

Looks like maybe this is it?

F 35-70/3.5-4.5
It is old, but is auto focus and has an "A" setting auto for aperture. I am NOT the original owner, but I don't think it was used much. It is supposed to have very decent optics. See the photos I took with it at my Picasa Sig.

Pros:
Small + Light
Very good optics (for a kit lens)
Auto focus/aperture
Macro setting
Inexpensive - one of the best Pentax kit lenses made by Pentax
SMC Coating

Cons:
Limited focal range - 35-70mm
Other??

I have two, and use it as a walking around lens.

See thread on the "other" forum:
Is Pentax F 35-70mm F3.5/4.5 a good choice?: Pentax SLR Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review

This lens is still for sale. It is in very good condition, and I'm dropping the price to $50 including shipping, to CONUS. To Canada is $55 including shipping (no tracking). Sample photos are in my sig below.

Payment by Paypal, but I'll consider other reasonable payment methods.

Don't know why people aren't keen on getting this lens. I have one and the optical quality is very good. The macro setting is very useful and it has given me very sharp images. Light and compact. Sleeper of a lens.

Is this the style of lens you are selling? It looks a lot different from the link noted in this thread. It also is designated as F 35-70mm f 3.5/4.5 but looks a lot like an FA series lens. I paid $90 for my copy of this little gem. If it the same as my picture it is a steal for $50!

Old timers like me prefer smaller range zooms, as they generally
offer better optical performance, and a larger maximum aperture.
