Item Description
I love this lens and recently happened across a second one. (I will never be without at least ONE).

I used to think that the "faster" the lens, the better it was... but this lens taught me that it is often the opposite that is true. Color rendition, sharpness, and color are usually far more important than the maximum aperture. This lens is renowned for being one of the best lenses in that department, that Pentax has ever made.

This copy is in EXCELLENT condition with only the barest cosmetic signs of previous use. Optically and mechanically it is superb. It comes with the original front and rear caps. A very useful focal length on APS-C sensors, giving you a slightly-wide "normal" lens 42mm equiv.

Will ship worldwide to PF members with good feedback. I charge actual shipping costs (only) for our mutual protection, I will ship only with a method that provides TRACKING to your shipping address.

Owner comments about this lens:
. . .I think K28/3.5 is best 28mm lens Pentax ever made because of its resolution, aberrations, color rendition, contrast, etc.

. . . I have an A28/2.8, FA28/2.8 AL and a 28/3.5. The f3.5 is probably the best of the three at f8 or f11 with nice crisp contrast. . .

. . . I love it. Very sharp for that wide a lens and great color and saturation . . .
Judge for yourself: Images taken with this same model lens on Flickriver: CHECK THESE OUT

See also images taken with this same lens in the Pentax Photo Gallery.

Here's the copy you are getting. Comes with original case & caps PLUS the original Pentax hood and hood case. You rarely see these offered together (and I could probably make more moola if I split them up, but I'd rather provide a great piece of kit to a fellow Pentaxian.

Images of the lens you are buying:

This lens is priced to sell quickly............... my price $149, plus actual shipping. The last time I offered this lens, it sold the same day at this price (and THAT ONE did not include the hood + hood case) so you are getting a heck of a deal. Purchase today and this lens ships tomorrow. I would like to avoid Paypal, if possible. If you want to pay with a credit or debit card, I can issue you an invoice through Square that will allow you to pay, just like a Paypal invoice.

This lens is just part of a set of superb SMC K lenses that I am selling, complete with hoods and cases.

Look for my other ads (for the K135mm f2.5 and K200 f4) shortly.
