Item Description
A lot of Pentax camera and lenses pass through my hands. (LBA is a harsh mistress, but I love her! ) Every once in a while I get the opportunity to offer something that LITERALLY looks like it just came out of the box. This lens is one such example. (Pictures to come, but honestly, you could google for pictures of this as a NEW lens or one used in a Pentax brochure and see what you will be getting.

You probably already know that the Pentax-A series of lenses are especially prized for their ease of use with Pentax DSLRs. Set them on the "A" and control the aperture with your camera dials, just as you would any of today's AF lenses. But you get the great build quality and buttery manual focus action that probably made you fall in love with photography back in the days of film. You probably also know the value of the optical quality inherent to a superb PRIME lens as compared with a zoom.

Want to take a look at what this lens can produce? Enjoy 265 images taken with the Pentax-A 135mm f2.8 on Flickriver. If that isn't enough, take a look at the images taken with this same lens that were accepted into the Pentax Photo Gallery.



See also the Pentax Forums Review page for this lens.

This lens features a built-in metal lens hood and the original caps, front and rear. A bright shiny, new as the day it came out of the box PASSED sticker is still firmly affixed. Cosmetically, optically and mechanically SUPERB.













I will be happy to ship this lens worldwide to Pentax Forum members with good Marketplace feedback (no New Members, please).

The "going price" of this lens is rising (and will no doubt spike further when a Pentax full frame camera is finally announced). What you pay today will probably be much less than you will pay tomorrow. My price for this flawless lens: $239 with FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE (limited time). Good luck!

I have this lens and alright, lemme break the "secret". I hate doing this as it pretty much will influence its price. :/
But seriously, this lens is seriously underrated for what it's worth. It's small, and sharp enough from wide open!

I believe why it got hit so low a rating from the past is due to its comparison "brother", the A*135/1.8. Seriously, that's like comparing a kit lens with a prime and then bashing the kit lens for being crappy.

And conveniently forgetting that the "brother" costs 10 times as much...
