DA 21mm 3.2

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

FA35 is Sold

Item for Sale
Pentax DA 21mm 3.2

Asking Price
DA 21 $380 -

Item Location
Pittsburgh (United States)

Item Description
I am the original owner of these two fine lenses. I won't describe them since you can find all you need to know about their pro's and con's in the lens review section, however I can of course comment on their condition. I've had these for 4-5 years (can't remember exact purchase dates) and have used them quite often, especially the DA 21. These have been kept in a smoke free home the entire time. Both have minor rub marks or a small nick or two on the barrels and hoods consistent with my style of shooting which is not careless but also not tiptoeing around either. If you don't plan to shoot much and you want mint collection pieces, then you should wait for others to come along. The optics are the same for both and I would rate them 9 on a scale of 10, the only deduction being for their age and a possibility of minor dust consistent with normal usage. As for the minor dust, I've looked and I can't see any but someone with a microscope might. The upshot is that if there is any, it doesn't affect the images. I just acquired the Ricoh GR which I plan to use for travel and it covers the range of these two, otherwise I wouldn't be selling them. Both are included with their hoods and draw string cases.

DA 21 $380.00
FA 35 $265.00

Gah, so tempted by the 21! Especially since I'm local. I'm having visions of sugarplums and Limiteds dancing in my head--somebody jump on this, please! If I hadn't just bought an 85/2 and weren't in the process of getting a refi I'd be all over it.

Hand delivery and free inspection included, how can you pass that up ?

Very surprised these are still available; both are excellent lenses and workhorses in my camera kit. Work well with K-01 especially-- the f/2 of FA35 helps with the autofocus in low light, and the DA 21 gives the K-01 a real nice compact form factor and walkaround focal length. And the FA35 is full-frame!
