[SOLD] Pentax-F 35-70 mm f3.5-5.6 zoom macro (Worldwide) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax-F 35-70 mm f3.5-5.6 zoom macro

Asking Price
$US 50

Item Location
Washington DC

Item Description
For sale is one Pentax-F Zoom 45-70mm 1:3.5-4.5 lens with Macro setting.

This lens, despite its plastic exterior, is well regarded for its surprisingly sharp optics and light weight. While the "macro" setting is not 1:1, it is definitely useful for gettting up closer to your subject.

This particular lens is in good to very good condition. The exterior is clean but does show some signs of wear typical of the plastic-encased F Series, and there are some small scuffs and dings on the mount and barrel. The plastic filter ring is intact and readily accepts 49 mm filters.

Mechanically, the lens is in great condition. The zoom, focus, and aperture rings all work correctly, and the blades are clean and snappy. The lens auto focuses properly and communicates correctly with my K5 in A aperture mode.

The optics of the lens are also in good condition - clean, clear, and free of fungus. There are a few very small - almost microscopic- cleaning scratches in the coating on the front element, which do not noticeably affect picture quality, but they are there, which is why I have listed the lens a bit below what it would otherwise go for.

See the attached images below for an overview of the lens. Apologies about the specks of dust on the exterior. I had just grabbed the lens out of my bag and not wiped it down before photographing it and will wipe it down before packing it for shipment. Also included is a sample image I just took of my cat to give an idea of the picture quality this lens can produce.
