Item Description
Pentax A 35-105 3.5 (Macro) - There are several things wrong with this lens - it has 4 surface scratches that go down to the glass on one side of the lens (the pictures show this). Another thing is that the A function isn't working correctly (and I assume it has to do with the metal piece that is inbetween the elements of the lens (also in pictures). This metal piece is visible from aperture 3.5-5.6. Now here is the odd thing about this metal piece - Neither it nor the scratches are visible in pictures I took with it with my K5. I'm not surprised about the scratches coming up, but it is quite surprising that the metal piece did not show up in pictures that were shot at 3.5 aperture in Manual mode.

I am also posting pictures that I took with it today to demonstrate that they don't actually show up in the shots.

So essentially if you want a beater 35-105 to either fix, or use in M mode this is a great price. It is sharp wide open, this is a great piece of glass.

I ship North America only. No returns. I've stated and shown what is wrong with the lens.

$35 shipped in the US. Use it in M mode and this is a good deal on a DSLR.
