Pentax SMC FA 20/2.8

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax SMC FA 20/2.8

Asking Price
625 USD

Item Location
Tel Aviv area (Israel)

Item Description
Selling my FA 20/2.8. It does not see sufficient use to justify keeping it. Recently the lens was serviced by Pentax Israel Camera Services for focus jam. The focus is now exactly as it was when I bought from a fellow forum member - with slight resistance towards 0.4 m mark on focusing scale. In terms of precision it is perfectly accurate with my K-5.

You will get the lens, both caps, the 3rd party screw in hood (it works fine for APS-C cameras, but on film body you will get dark corners), the B+W filter and the lens pouch.

This lens is exactly the one which I reviewed here: Pentax FA 20/2.8 in-depth review.

I am asking USD 625 for it which is all inclusive. That is, the shipping price and PayPal fees are all on me.

If you think the price is too high please make me a sensible offer (obviously in private).

Thanks in advance.

Bump for a fine lens. I have one and like it very much. It isn't as famous as its smaller cousin, the DA21/3.2, but it's faster, wider and has great IQ, and it's ready for the long-awaited Pentax FF body.

Micky, there're two images in the review that I published earlier. Additionally, I attached a couple to the initial message of this thread.

Bump again. I must say that I am surprised by the lack of interest in the well-known full frame auto focus wide-angle prime lens... Although not terribly rare, this lens is not your common DA 21/3.2 Limited...
