SMC Pentax 28mm f/3.5 (K Mount) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
SMC Pentax 28mm f/3.5 (K Mount)

Asking Price

Item Location
Saskatoon (Canada)

Item Description
The 28mm focal length is my favorite and over the past year I've managed to acquire three of them. I'm now paring down my lens collection to free up some cash.

This lens is in fine condition--mechanical, optical and cosmetic. It shows no obvious signs of use except for a slight bit on the mount, which is to be expected (see picture). No wear marks on the barrel and suprisingly, I can see no dust in the elements. The glass is flawless. Aperture works fine.

The lens comes with a rear cap, but I can't supply one for the front. Instead, I'll ship it with a filter in addition to packing it very carefully.

The price includes the PayPal fee. The shipping is by Canada Post at actual cost. You can calculate shipping on the website. Please select a method that allows insurance. Origin postal code is S7M 1N9, package size is 6 inches cubed, weight is 500 grams. I will only ship to your PayPal confirmed address.

Great lens. Almost as good as the K30/2.8.

It's better Steve... Really, really better... Here's a warning though, be prepared to find yourself down with a lot of stress when you ever do plan to sell it...

I have one of these, awesome lens.
Tried selling it once.
Pulled it out, took a few shots, put it back in the case and placed in in my drawer.

Pentax has a few legacy lenses with that 3D factor and this is one of them.

It's hard to believe no one has grabbed this lens.
