[SOLD] Bargain Priced Pentax A35/2.8 Lens (Worldwide)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Bargain Priced Pentax A35/2.8 Lens

Asking Price
$65 shipped (US)

Item Location
Maryland

Item Description
For sale is a Pentax-A 35mm F2.8 lens. It's in good condition overall with only two issues that need to be pointed out. First, there are very small oil stains on the edge of the apertures blades (see pic #3). The blades themselves are very quicks and snappy and there doesn't appear to be any ill-effect in terms of the functionality. Second, the focus ring is very smooth, but probably a little less dampened than it should be. I've never used another A35/2.8 so I can't be 100% sure, but based on other A series lenses I've used, the focus ring moves a little more easily than I would expect. Again, it works fine and it's not loose or wobbly, nor is it hard to focus with it, but I just wanted to point it out for full disclosure.

Other than that, the lens is in nice condition both cosmetically and optically. Because of the above described issues, I am selling the lens at a substantial discount and asking $65 shipped (no additional paypal fees). Please PM me with any questions you might have.

I bet Eric could repair / clean this one up for not much money, leaving the new owner with a beauty of a lens at a very nice price.

I got the A 35/2,8 and you should not worry, my copy works in the same manner i.e. much smoother then for example A 50/1,4 .

Interesting, as I said, this is the only A35/2.8 I've used so I had no reference point. The only other A series lenses that has a somewhat similar focusing feel (although it's still slightly more dampened) is the A100/2.8 macro.


---------------------

The A35/2.8 is now sold, thanks to everyone who PM'd me with interest.
