Pentax A 28mm f2.8 Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax A 28mm f2.8

Asking Price

Item Location
Phoenix, AZ area (United States)

Item Description
I moved my camera equipment into the spare bedroom's bookcase. My wife just happened to go through it and asked - Where did you get all of this stuff, and what have you NOT used. A pack rat you will not be....

The Pentax A 28mm f2.8 is in excellent condition. The glass has no scratches, no fungus, no mold, and overall is in excellent condition. Any lens of this age, is going to have some dust and I do see some. The aperture blades have no oil, are clean, and snappy. The focus ring, turns easily, and is well damped.

The body is in excellent condition. I see no nicks or dents. I see no brassing. For its age, the lens has been taken care of. It comes with both front and rear caps. Please note that the front squeeze cap is missing one of the push tabs.

I have a Contax Zeiss 28/f2.8 Distagon, and between the two - I am letting the Pentax A go. Even though the A has the lens reporting and is a bit easier to use than the CZ, I can really only use and need one.

I really did not have a good feel for the price. So, I went to evilbay and averaged all the recent sales, then made a slight adjustment down just to be on the conservative side.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Are you selling or trading this item?
