[SOLD] Kiron 24mm f2 Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Kiron 24mm f2

Asking Price
USD $27 (paypal gift option)

Item Location
Salt Lake City, UT (United States)

Item Description
What: Kiron 24mm f2 in good physical condition with some optical problems + generic front and rear caps

1. Chips on the border of the the front element (should not affect image quality on a APS-C camera). I did not do this.
2. Oily aperture (a known problem for this lens). Aperture should work between f2-f5.6.
3. Slight hazing in the rear element (see attached photo).

Image quality: acceptable at f2 and become better at f2.8. A fun lens for someone who wants to work on the lens or use it for parts.

3% more please if not gift.

Story: Bought on EBay several years ago for much more. Used it a lot until I got a Pentax FA* 24mm f2, a Sigma 28mm f1.8 and a K28 f2. Very well built lens except for the aperture problem which was developed lately... Have not used much. Focusing direction is reserved from a Pentax lens. Too many lenses...

Not exactly the right place for this, but since I also own a Vivitar/Kiron 28/2, how would you compare the fa* 24/2, the sigma 28/1.8 & the kiron lens? IQ wise only, as I suspect the AF is better on the FA* & sigma

And bump !
