[SOLD] Pentax A 28mm f/2.8 and A 35mm f/2.8

I posted these a~7 weeks ago, but had to withdraw them due to professional commitments. Now, they're back on the market. Have at 'em...

I picked up an A35/2 a while back, so don't need the A35/2.8 any longer. And I've been meaning to unload my A28/2.8 since I don't really need its FL between my A35 and A24/2.8. So...

Prices are firm and include ground shipping, insurance, and delivery confirmation to lower-48 contiguous US states. Other destinations and service levels by individual arrangement only.

See bottom section for detailed information on payment, shipping & insurance, returns, etc. If I decide to lower my prices or accept best offers, I'll update this original post.



Available | $99 | SMC Pentax-A 28mm f/2.8 w/ Pentax 49mm cap + Pentax rear cap

Original owner: No

Functional Condition: Excellent
Cosmetic Condition: Good

No introduction necessary, here -- just a very nice copy of the well known A28/2.8. While not known as a "special" "pixie-dust" filled lens, nonetheless a solid, steady performer. I find using a hood helps significantly in producing better images with this lens.

Front and rear glass are clean and blemish-free, a wee little bit of dust inside that I have to strain to see (as might be expected in an older lens), aperture blades are clean / oil-free and snappy, aperture ring is well damped and clicks positively into all apertures, focus ring is well damped and smooth throughout the range. Photos of A35/2.8 taken with this lens.

Includes:
  • SMC Pentax-A 28mm f/2.8
  • One of the following:
  • 49mm Pentax front cap
  • Pentax rear cap
Photos of (taken with A35/2.8): 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

Sold | $155 | SMC Pentax-A 35mm f/2.8 w/ 49mm metal hood + 58mm cap + Pentax rear cap

Original owner: No

Functional Condition: Excellent
Cosmetic Condition: Good

I think the PF lens reviews are spot on about this lens: a somewhat hard to find mighty fine performer!

  • (2) Pentax rear lens caps
See below for individual prices. Note the 49mm Pentax front lens cap will sell with one lens, the 49mm hood + 58mm center-pinch cap with the other. Doesn't matter to me which goes with which lens.

USA -- prices include FedEx Ground / Home Delivery or USPS Priority or First Class mail (seller's choice) to Paypal-confirmed addresses, including insurance for full sale value, delivery confirmation, and required delivery signature.

Canada -- Same as USA, but pay the price difference between delivery to buyer's location and the nearest USA metro area.

International -- Pay actual shipping costs in addition to listed price. Three options:
  1. FedEx / DHL or UPS, including insurance for full sale value, delivery confirmation, and required delivery signature. Seller assumes liability until delivery.
  2. USPS Express Mail International, insured for full sale value. Seller assumes liability until delivery.
  3. USPS Priority Mail International, insured for full sale value. Buyer assumes ALL liability upon seller's proof of shipment. To be clear: if something goes wrong after seller ships item -- delivery delay or failure, lost or damaged package or contents, etc. -- buyer is fully and solely liable and seller bears no liability or responsibility. I will consider this option on a discretionary, case-by-case basis only. See Payment Options below for important information about paying for this shipping option.

Note: Under no circumstances will I declare a customs value other than the actual purchase price.

If buyer is not satisfied, buyer must ship lens to seller via the same carrier, service level, and service options (or alternative carrier, service level, and service options as mutually agreed). Buyer is responsible for all return shipping costs, customs duties, fees, and assumes all liability until seller confirms receipt and condition of returned goods. Upon receipt of returned goods and confirmation of contents and condition, I'll refund the full purchase price, less original shipping costs and any applicable Paypal fees.

For all international buyers using shipping option #3: No returns and/or refunds of any kind.

Non-Delivery Returns

In the case of items returned due to non-delivery, for any reason other than seller error, buyer is responsible for any and all fees associated with return and may opt <1> to cancel the purchase and receive a refund (if applicable) less actual shipping and Paypal costs, or <2> for re-shipment, buyer is responsible for all re-shipment costs and any additional Paypal fees.

Delays

Seller is not responsible for carrier or customs delivery delays.

Customs Duties, Fees, and Taxes

Buyer is solely responsible for complete payment of any and all customs duties, fees, and taxes during original shipment, returns, returns due to non-delivery, and/or re-shipment.

Full Contact Information

Buyer must be willing to share (privately, of course) full contact information -- legal name, home address, email, home/mobile phone #s -- to ensure multiple channels of communication in case anything goes screwy with PF.com.

Miscellaneous
