Item Description


This is, without a doubt, one of the greatest "bang-for-your-buck" genuine Pentax lenses you can find today. For less than the price of a single prime lens, you can own this lens that has been called a "STACK of primes". This is the handy Pentax-A (use easily in AV mode on your modern Pentax DSLR). It will provide the 35mm-equivalent field of view of a 52-158mm lens. It also has a handy "macro" mode for close focusing.

Here's your chance to add a highly respected "A" lens to your Pentax arsenal. While zooms are normally a compromise, Pentax engineered what many owners have called a "stack of primes" lens. It is especially well regarded for it's colors, rendering rich reds and blues - as well as for it's respectable "macro" function.
This is a manual focus, two stage zoom (focusing ring separate from zoom/macro ring).

Typical owner's comments:

QuoteQuote:
I have and use the A 35-105. It is a fantastic lens. Sharp as a tack, and very bright and contrasty. It is my favorite lens.
QuoteQuote:
I have one, and love it. It provides the versatility that you use a zoom lens for, without exacting a terrible cost in lost sharpness and contrast. Under most circumstances, I would be at a loss to tell which pictures I'd taken with my 35-105 and which I'd taken with my prime lenses.
QuoteQuote:
I'll add to all the praise for the A 35-105/3.5 lens. . . . optically it is just about as sharp as any prime.

Cosmetically this one shows some wear, mostly on the flared end of the lens body, but also on the normal "highlight areas"). but optically and mechanically it is gorgeous, save for one noticable (but tiny) coating scratch which you can see in the close-up front lens element photo at 2:00). If you have been wanting this lens, but are looking for a bargain then this one is your ticket.
