[SOLD] SMC Pentax-FA* 28-70mm f/2.8 dead mint in box EUR 500 (but) (WW)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
SMC Pentax-FA* 28-70mm f/2.8 dead mint in box EUR 500 (but) (WW)

Asking Price
EUR 500

Item Location
Dalfsen (Netherlands)

Item Description
For sale is my dead mint, gorgeous, SMC Pentax-FA* 28-70mm f/2.8 in box. Mechanically dead mint, no flaws whatsoever. Focusing, zooming, power zooming, everything works perfectly and is clean. The original caps and the hood (which also fits the FA* 80-200mm f/2.8) is included, of course.

HOWEVER... The lens has an optical flaw (probably uncorrectable) making the photos not critically sharp (please look at the samples well below although it's probably not visible), hence the very low price for a FA*. You can probably put the optical block of your well used FA* 28-70 into it to make it a superb one?

Also, NO returns because of the above mentioned flaw. When you buy this lens, you understand that it is dead mint, but with an optical problem as described above.

Anyway, the price is FIXED, not negotiable. Also, the EUR 500 is a net price to me, so please add shipping costs and PayPal fees. Please don't contact me by PM with a lower offer. I won't respond to those PM's.

A swap against a FA* 24/2 (complete one with hood) + some money is possible however.

Hm.... if those pictures were 'not critically sharp' and you consider this a 'flawed' lens that you have..... I seriously thinking all my lenses are 'flawed'...

Very sharp pictures! where is the 'not sharp' part in these pics? ^^

I can make any lens look good.

But the truth is that this lens is still somewhat softer than another example of a friend. It's not unusable, far from it, but I'm simply spoiled...

Well, the lens is sold in the meantime, so thank you for the interest!
