Item Description
I believe these models are re-branded Sigma SuperWides. This is K-mount bayonet, in extremely good shape, w/ only minor dust on the inside. The only negative is a small depression in the filter ring and the edge of the focus ring (must have happened at the same time. It might not take a filter- I haven't tried.I wouldn't bother w/ a UV filter anyway, as it wouldn't help image quality and the lens isn't expensive enough to worry over. The glass and coatings are in very good condition. It's a 28mm f/2.8, extremely compact, very tight and well-made, made in Japan, and the coolest thing is it's close-focus ability. I used it for a lot of product shots as it was the closest-focusing Pentax compatible lens I own. 8.66 inches (says the forum review specs- read them for other user impressions.) I bought it with a few other items, expecting it to be a throwaway, but I shot it for fun and was really surprised. Get a little plastic lens hood for it and you can do really well. It includes front and rear caps. Shipping is $6 bucks in the lower 48. I can ship to other destinations if you'd like (I'll get a shipping quote for you.) It includes front and rear caps. Thanks for looking.
