[SOLD] Pentax F 17-28mm Fisheye Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax F 17-28 Fisheye

Asking Price
US $325

Item Location
Tampa, FL (United States)

Item Description
SMC Pentax-F Fisheye 1:3.5-4.5 17-28mm. I could have listed this as "Excellent", but there's a tiny amount of discoloration of the SMC coating at the extreme edge of the glass, where it meets the barrel. Not easy to see and it took me a couple shots to get it visible in the pictures below. Otherwise, lens is excellent mechanically, optically and cosmetically.

This is an F lens, so in addition to APS-C cameras, it will also fit a film camera or a FF digital if and when that comes to pass.

As a fisheye, it's noticeably wider than a rectilinear lens at same focal length. in the samples below, The 17-28 at 17mm is much wider than the DA 16-45 at 16mm. I'd estimate that this lens at 17mm is roughly equivalent to 13-14mm on standard lens.

Sharp and good color. Distortion is not as pronounced as the 10-17mm.

Pentax DA 16-45 at 16mm

Pentax DA 17-28 at 17mm
