PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax DA 70 2.4 (Only shoots wide open - sticky blades)

Asking Price
180.00 USD

Item Location
Nebraska (United States)

Item Description
Pentax DA 70 2.4 - I bought this a month ago on the forum in this condition. The blades have oil and are sticky. I have the Tamron 70-200 2.8 so this didn't make much of an impact in my kit.
The hood is bent a little but screws on fine. The optics are clean and fine. The pictures are sharp and vibrant at 2.4. The AF is spot on with my K3 and K5II.
You can get this fixed and still have it at a great price or just shoot it wide open.

$180 shipped in the US. PM if interested.

You can see the blades have oil on them. This morning they moved quite smoothly though and were not resistant like they were when I shot with it. Don't assume that it works just fine - it still is in the condition as I am selling and now you can see the oil on those blades, but they did not have the resistance that they did a week ago when I shot with it. The main reason I am getting rid of it - I have a DA*55 and a Tamron 70-200 2.8. I thought this one would be a great compliment under 2.8 for the Tamron, but I think the bokeh is better with the Tamron so I will heft that thing around and say good bye to this little gem.
