Item Description
Pentax F 35-70 f3.5 macro lens

This is well-respected autofocus lens that is getting harder to find. This copy is in very good condition. Glass is clean, no fungus, haze or scratches...the plastic body is in good shape with no major scratches or scrapes. The odd rubber strip that this lens has is still on mine and in good shape.

Aperture blades work fine - snappy, no oil.

Autofocus works fine too - fast, if not a bit loud (a feature of this lens; you know when it focuses!)

It's a nice small lens, great for street photography. Surprisingly sharp, with nice colours and contrast. It's not quite a macro - name notwithstanding - but its close focus abilities are useful.

I'm selling it just because I have its focal lengths covered, and I'm saving up for a wide-angle lens.

Comes with front and rear caps.

$50 plus $15 shipping anywhere in North America. I will pack very well.

This is the cutest and sharpest AF lens. Great for photograhing documents for its sharpness corner to corner. I use it on parties because it is small, and easy to use. Very light.

Sold, pending payment. (And thanks Pepe for the comments - it is a great little lens. I already kinda miss it, but saving up for a wide angle of some kind.)
