[SOLD] FS: Pentax DA 70mm Limited

Up for sale is a like new Pentax 70mm limited. The lens will come with original caps and hood. I'm asking $399. I'm selling this lens because I want to buy a 77 limited. Please PM if you're interested.

Thanks for looking.

DA 70ltd is sharper edge to edge, faster focusing, smaller, cheaper, generally less CA/PF.

FA 77ltd is very sharp in the middle and good at the edges, but has superior bokeh and specular highlights, by almost anyone's subjective measure.

Images from the 70ltd are outstanding, but the 77ltd creates images that make people's jaw drop.

So, on paper and technically the DA 70 is 'superior', but the 77 makes you look better as a photographer


To the OP - Any photos of (or by) this lens you can post? Thanks!

I can't use the 70 with my film camera. The 77 is longer and faster (f/1.8).

Those are some reasons why I want the 77mm. I'll post some pics of the lens when I get home.

Actually, you can, at least from the full frame coverage pov. I don't get any vignetting with mine.

But I can understand... if I didn't already have the 70 I'd buy yours...
