Schneider Kreuznach D-Xenagon 35mm f2 (aka FA 35mm f2) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Schneider Kreuznach D-Xenagon 35mm f2 (aka FA 35mm f2)

Asking Price
275 AUD negotiable

Item Location
Newcastle, NSW (Australia)

Item Description
Here is the wonderful and quite rare Schneider Kreuznach 35mm f2 - exactly the same lens as the FA 35mm f2. Some might argue the coating is slightly different but I am a huge fan of Pentax's SMC and I feel like this is the same - has that same clean, smooth look that wipes away any fingerprints or anything without a care in the world.
Unfortunately I've had almost no time to use this and it has to go, but from the little use I've had with it, I've loved it.
VERY VERY useable wide open and has that "wow" factor of focal length (equal to 52mm on full frame).

It comes with a Hoya Skylight UV filter (not pictured but it IS included) - but I don't have any other accessories for it - the front cap has been replaced by an older Pentax one, but it clicks on fine - and of course you get a Pentax rear cap. I'd probably advise its new owner to get one of those retractable rubber hoods which the lens cap can still click on while they're attached, and it will just increase contrast a bit and cut down on flare.
Anyway it's in great condition - optically perfect and cosmetically great too. See photos!

Bump with a price drop.
Here is a photo taken on a K-01 with this lens at f2 (yes, wide open). Gorgeous lens!
