Item Description

SMC Pentax-FA 24-90mm f/3.5-4.5 IF AL. This is a good all-around lens with a nearly ideal range of focal lengths and nice image quality. It also allows relatively close focusing - better than standard Pentax 77mm or 100mm primes, for example.

I'm offering it for half of what I paid for it a year and a half ago. I got it on eBay from another forum member in Arizona. It functions and takes images as nicely as when I got it. However, it does have a few small marks on the front element, from the Nikon filter that shattered on it when it fell from my backpack once. They don't show any effect on images and are toward the edge of the class, outside the normal digital image circle. Lately I've been using it on film, since I have other lenses for my DSLR.

It comes with the hood, original front and generic rear caps, and a Kenko 67mm MC UV filter (Japan). The filter window in the hood is missing - the previous owner lost it in Australia. Interestingly, I took it right back to Australia and got many good photos with it!

I've posted some images of the lens along with a couple of photos I took with it today. You can see a couple of front element marks on the right side of the third photo, plus a little on the plastic next to them. It is not serious damage, and it has no problem taking filters or the lens cap like normal.

Price reduced. You have ten days to return it if you don't like it. This is a very economical way to get this lens.

Here are a few more shots from the garden today. All are straight-from-camera JPGs from my K200D. The first is 90mm, f/14 at ISO 1000. The second is 24mm at f/14 and ISO 800. The final one is 27mm, f/3.5 at ISO 100. All shots are handheld. As usual, the originals look better - when not shrunken down to forum size.
