[SOLD] Pentax FA* 28-70mm f2.8 zoom lens (Worldwide) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax FA* 28-70mm f2.8 zoom lens

Asking Price
AU$1025 reduced to $950

Item Location

Item Description
For sale is my FA* 28-70mm zoom. This is a very well built, fast zoom which produces prime quality photographs. It is compatible with both film and digital cameras with the power zoom function working without issue on my K-7. I bought it several months ago to replace several primes but unfortunately LBA has reared it's ugly head once more so it has to go. IQ is stunning from this lens as can be seen in the review section.

The lens itself is in excellent condition optically. Aperture, zoom and focus rings all work smoothly and I can see no scratches or fungus but there is some dust evident (probably normal for a lens of this age). I have seen no image quality issues as a result and I didn't know there was any dust there until I placed this ad.
The exterior shows signs of paint loss from use which I have tried to show in the images included below. There are no other issues that I am aware of.

Included is a Hoya polarizing and skylight filter to fit.

I need the cash fairly quickly so it will only be listed here for a few days.
