Pentax SMC DA 70mm F2.4 Limited Silver

Item Location

Item Description
Selling a rare silver edition DA 70mm F2.4 due to lack of use. I got a full set of silver DA limited lenses, and a full set of FA limited lenses too. But seldom used the DA70 due to its focal length is too close to FA77.

Lens is in excellent to near mint condition w/ very minor use mark, comes w/ everything as when bought new. Looks beautiful on any color camera imo, but espeically beautiful on a silver color K5/K7, and of course silver K20D/K200D and etc.

Asking for $530 plus shipping, I'll absorb the paypal fee.

There are a lot comparison reviews between the DA70 and FA77, the overall finding is that DA70 is much smaller/lighter, focuses faster and quieter, sharper than FA77 at F2.4 but both about the same (in sharpness) at F2.8. FA77 has slightly longer focal length so its bokeh seems a bit smoother, but DA70 produces very sharp photos w/ very creamy bokeh too. Hard to say which one is better, I don't mind using either one. But I like to keep the FA limited set as collection, that's why I'm letting the DA70 go.


Here are a few photos of the actual lens selling, and how it looks like on a K5 silver edition:







And here is the full house:
