[SOLD] SMC Pentax-AF 35-70mm F2.8 + ME-F Marketplace Listing

SMC Pentax-AF 35-70mm F2.8 + ME-F

Item Location
North Carolina (United States)

Item Description
Got one for all the collectors out there!

What you see here is an excellent condition SMC Pentax-AF 35-70mm F2.8 lens, with box + papers + manual. All the goodies. The box is a little worn, but the lens itself looks like new!

This lens, of course, was Pentax's first attempt at an autofocus system, around the time of the "M" series lenses. The lens itself requires batteries, only works with the ME-F body, autofocus speed is like molasses, and locks focus only if it is feeling good . Basically I'm trying to say that you shouldn't buy this lens for it's autofocus properties, but it is a piece of pentax heritage and history.

Also included is an ME-F body, which is in very good condition (except the battery door doesn't stay shut because the plastic tabs have broken off--a design flaw of the ME-F and happens to a lot of them apparently). It isn't in as nice condition as the lens, but if you get batteries into both of them, the system does actually work and can autofocus (or give you focus confirmation if you desire).

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Are you selling or trading this item?
