Item Description

Pentax made so many 28mm lenses, it's hard to sort them all out, without even mentioning everyone else's 28s. This lens is generally regarded as a bit better than the Pentax-M 28mm f2.8 and close to but not as good as the K28/3.5. The K version is much larger. I agree with that consensus. I really like the size difference from the K version. Sharpness is right there from wide open, so f3.5 is usable if slow. Colors and contrast are great, and flare is minimal. I did notice vignetting, mentioned in some reviews, but only in comparison to another lens and shooting a white wall. I don't think it's enough to notice in the real world, and I could eliminate it easily in processing.

The glass has no scratches, haze, or fungus. The aperture is snappy, oil-free, and the ring clicks at all the stops. Focus is smooth through the range. Cosmetic condition is good but not collector quality. Photos from all angles are in this album. I'm including the original caps and case, in fair condition. The case weighs enough to just tip the shipping weight into the next price bracket. If you don't want the case, I can adjust shipping costs. I can ship the next shipping day after payment.
