Spiratone 20mm F2.8 P/KA

Asking Price
200.00 USD

Item Location
Coupeville (United States)

Item Description
I bought this beautiful lens from MIghtyMike in January before heading out to Southeast Asia, India, and Taiwan this spring.

During the trip, I found that I really liked the image quality of this lens. However, a lens of this focal length as a manually focused handheld walkabout lens, has me missing too many opportunities. Therefore, I've replaced it with a Pentax DA 20-40mm f/2.8-4 ED Limited DC WR Lens (Black).

I feel this lens should go to someone who'll give it more appreciation than I can. Otherwise, it'll be spending at least 99% of the year in storage.

If buying, payment needs to be completed by midnight Friday, May 16 GMT +8 so that I can ship it Saturday before I head out to New Delhi Monday morning for 5 months.

To clarify on focusing. I found me best using this lens on close or far subjects. For in between subjects, it was difficult for me to focus because, I'm over 40, wear glasses, and starting to have twitchy nerves.

Do you find this lens to be rather soft or no?

Maybe just a tad soft. However, I feel it was more my inability to accurately focus for mid-distance subjects that caused such. I'll add some images shortly.
