[SOLD] Pentax FA 28-70mm F4 - read (Worldwide) Marketplace Listing

Item Description
Here is the Pentax FA 28-70mm F4.

Barrel and the outside glass look good. The glass inside shows some separation of inside elements. At least I think that's what it is. It does not look like fungus. Aperture and focusing ring work. Images appear to be quite sharp but the lens is less contrasty and prone to glare if used without the hood (I don't have one for it). Perhaps somone will want it to play with? The lens is sold as-is.

For those who have time to read the lesson learned here is the history of the Ebay purchase:

I purchased it from Ebay seller "grandad-dave" based in UK (100% feedback). The lens arrived quite late. I shot a roll of film using the lens on my ZX-5n. The prints were not bad (later I figured that the lab must've "boosted" contrast). When I tried to use it on K20 I noticed low contrast and then I examined the lens more closely. I wrote to "grandad-dave" but instead of reply he blocked me from contacting him or bidding on his auctions. By then it was too late to protest the transaction.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Are you selling or trading this item?
