Fa* 28-70mm

Item Location
London (UK)

Item Description
For sale is FA*28-70. I bought it few months ago only, without hood and in the same cosmetic condition as I'm selling it. I paid more than I'm asking for and I added the DA* style hood!

The lens works perfectly, glass is clean and scratch free, aperture snappy, aperture ring working as intended, MF ring, zoom ring and PZ function all 100% working.

The lens must have gone through some abuse earlier on it's life though. It shows some marks on the silver finish (non unseen with FA* lenses) but most notable is the dent in the beauty ring. This is (IMO) closely related to scuffed filter thread. It looks like the lens came into contact with an object that on it's way to the beauty ring shaved off part of the filter thread. Having said that, the glass is intact and the filter thread will still take filters (I tried my 67mm CPL).

As I mentioned, the lens came without hood so I got the DA*200/300 hood for it. On APSC it doesn't vignette even on 28mm setting. Provides perfect protection from stray light and physical damage (far better than original hood IMO) and can be stored backwards for transport, even on camera.

Lens comes wit Pentax rear cap and DA style pinch front cap
