Item for Sale
Pentax M 35 - 70mm f2.8 - 3.5

Asking Price
USD 50

Item Location

Item Description
Up for sale is a not so common M series zoom, the 35 - 70mm f2.8 - 3.5. This is quite a unique lens and the second fastest in Pentax's 35 - 70mm lenses, the faster one being the AF 35 - 70mm f2.8. It has garnered good reviews in the lens database section, and is rated the best M series zoom:

SMC Pentax-M 35-70mm F2.8-3.5 Lens Reviews - Pentax Lens Review Database

Personal experience with this lens is that it has good contrast and colour rendition, and is surprisingly sharp for a zoom. Pictures below I have taken with the lens:

Condition-wise this is graded excellent. Light user marks (see last photo), glass is clean and without blemish. Some internal dust but no effect on IQ.

PM if interested! Thanks for looking!

Up for this very under-rated lens. Someone had commented that this lens was probably one of Pentax's early forays into making * zoom lenses, and seeing the image quality, I would tend to agree.
