(PRICE DROP) Samyang 35mm 1.4 ED AS UMC Lens (Pentax) EX Condition $350

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Samyang 35mm 1.4 ED AS UMC Lens (Pentax) EX Condition

Asking Price
$350

Item Location
San Francisco (United States)

Item Description
This is an excellent copy of the Samyang 35mm 1.4 ED AS UMC lens for the Pentax mount. This is the same lens as the Rokinon version, simply rebadged with Samyang's name. Includes 77mm UV filter. This lens was purchased from a fellow forum member.

There's next to no wear on the body of the lens or the barrel, minus a small faint blemish (not scratch) on the front element. Focus is smooth and buttery; aperture is clean and smooth as well. Minimal, if any, dust exists in the lens. The EX rating is based off the Condition Key.

Comes complete with UV filter, front and rear caps, hood, case, box, and all packaging materials. Will be shipped priority mail a day after receiving payment.

You can't go wrong with this lens, as it's like a manual-focus version of Sigma's new 35 f/1.4, as it weighs about the same weight, but costs almost half a grand less. Price is set at $350 for lens with free shipping in the US. Outside of the US shall be shipped at cost.

dmazimoto, sadly this lens must to help pay the bills. My video card bit the dust a few weeks ago and I need to recoup some of the cost of the new video card. Being a photographer AND a gamer is one expensive hobby, so this lens must go. Sharp wide open with great bokeh, this lens was a keeper, if not for the video card pooping out on me.

This is a fantastic lens. I use/love the Vivitar-branded version on my D700.

Brian, I would suggest that you post pictures you have taken with it. It truly is a stunner, but many haven't seen one of these in action.

Its portrait capabilities are, in my opinion, on par with the DA* 55 1.4 and FA* 85 1.4. This is a flat out, impressive lens. Nice shots, Brian. Your work in those pictures is impressive. Hope you get it sold soon!
