DA* 55mm 1.4

DA* 55mm 1.4

Asking Price
625 USD

Item Location

Item Description
With a lot of contemplation, I am selling my DA* 55mm 1.4 lens. It truly delivers some fantastic photographs, but I like shooting film almost more than digital and it doesn't make much sense to have such a high quality lens for only one medium.

I will trade for an FA 77mm limited and cash if need be.

Lens is in very nice condition, no scratches or marks anywhere. There does seem to be a couple specs of dust that are visible only under maginifaction. It was purchased new in August 2012 from Henry's Canada - I have 2 year Henry's Canadian Warranty for anyone in Canada.


The lens required a +5 AF adjustment on my K7, but I did not need to adjust for the k30.

SDM, although a little slower than most screw driven focus lenses, is quiet and smooth.

This lens delivers out of this world portraits!! I attached some of my favorites.

Bump to highlight price reduction - note: there is a dent in the filter ring.

Price dropped to 515$ I am dropping the price 10$ each week - first come first served, the only flaw to this lens is that the filter ring is dented slightly. You could probably still get a filter on there. this does not affect the hood mounting. Very high quality lens - I simply use film more than digital

Price is down to 515? I am new to the awesomeness of pentaxforums. I wouldn't have asked you all the questions that you already answered here if had just scrolled down a little bit! Lol.

Price dropped 10$ - nothing wrong with the lens except bent filter ring - surely not a critical factor
