[SOLD] DA 35mm/f2.8 Macro (US/CAN)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
DA 35/f2.8 Macro Limited

Asking Price
$399

Item Location
Seattle

Item Description
Up for sale is my Very Good condition Pentax SMC DA 35/f2.8 Macro Limited.
This is a beautiful little prime lens from Pentax. There are a few minor flaws that I can see with the lens. One of the elements has two hairline marks that do not affect image quality. These can only be seen by looking through the lens while holding it right up to your eye. The other is a slight amount of paint wear near the outside of the mounting ring as well as around the edges of the barrel and the pull out shade. PLEASE NOTE: The images shown below were taken with a camera with a dirty sensor. I've highlighted the imperfections in red and the yellow highlights are sensor smears and not defects on the lens.

I am selling it to fund other lens purchases. I picked it up here from another member in February. It comes with hood, original front & rear caps, box & warranty card, & factory soft pouch.

Asking price is $399 Paypal'd & shipped to the continental USA. Can ship worldwide at additional buyers shipping expense. Prefer payment via Paypal (will not do gift option on transaction for this amount). Sorry, not interested in any trades unless you have a CZ Jenna Flecktogon 20/2.8 or a Canon 17-40L.

I have done several transactions here, more with positive feedback on Fred Miranda.com under username Sirfishalot. Also on eBay under Sirfishalotz.

Please PM me with inquires.
Thanks for looking,

JayT

No, it's a DA Limited lens. Lots of people make this mistake, but DA Limited is not the same as DA*.

Oops, my bad
Image quality is in the * category I would say.

Great versatile lens - for close, mid and long range work. But don't take my word for it, check out the varied results (photog dependant :o) yourself from a shot a day in September. Can't recommend it enough!!!
