[SOLD] FA 20-35mm f/4 AL

An excellent lens that I may end up regretting the sale of. I bought this lens from B&H 2 years ago to replace the 18-55 kit lens, and also as an occaisional wide angle for film use. I have owned it since new.

The rendering of this lens is amazing. It's sharp, produces beautiful colours, and allows for pretty close focus. It's also very compact. The FA 20-35 can be used for ultra-wide angle on film SLRs also.

The condition of the lens is very good. There are some very minor scuffs on the body of the lens. Glass is impeccable. No visible dust internally. Aperture ring clicks smoothly.

Check out the reviews on this site: FA 20-35 F4 AL

I have one and it is one of my favorites.
It gives very rich colours and is sharp. Compact size and constant f/4 aperture can match the DA21. I'm surprised why there isn't more interest in this FA lens.

Still up for $415.

The last one on eBay sold for $469. I hate to go there, due to fees and hassle. I'm up for some trades, also. Make an offer before I change my mind.

!!

Regret selling mine. As noted, this lens is quite small and light, but seriously outperforms most wide angles when it comes to color rendition and sharpness. Far sharper than the FA*24/2 I had for a few years...perhaps a bad copy or something? Still, this little zoom is a real dandy! The price is almost down to my PayPal balance, don't tempt me! Somebody buy it please!

Trades, trades? PZ1p body of interest? Pentax brand color filters for black and white shooting? LX accessories?
