Return Policy & Additional Details
For sale is an auto-focus Pentax-F 35-70mm f/3.5-4.5 zoom lens with "macro" setting. I bought it used from Adorama last year but have rarely used it.

This lens is well regarded by Pentaxians for its sharp optics, light weight, fast focusing, and compactness. The "macro" setting (activated by twisting the lens just past the 70mm) is not 1:1, but is very handy for getting up closer to your subject. I found the short zoom range excellent for portraits and everyday snapshooting, as it quickly goes from a "normal" perspective to short telephoto. If/when a full-frame DSLR is introduced, this is a full-frame lens.

This particular lens is in very good condition. The plastic exterior is clean and shows minimal signs of wear. The plastic filter ring is intact and readily accepts 49 mm filters.

Mechanically, the lens is in great condition. The zoom, focus, and aperture rings all work correctly, and the blades are clean and snappy.

The optics of the lens are also in great condition - clean, clear, and free of fungus. No oil, snappy blades.

Includes old school side-pinch Pentax front lens cap and push-on rear cap. Sorry, no original box.

Why am I selling? I found I prefer shooting with my prime lenses and I am trying to pare down my lens collection a bit. Plus I need to pay off the K-01 that I just bought...

Here are some examples of what the F 35-70 is capable of:

Please send me a private message if interested in the item!
