Pentax DA* 200 mm f/2.8

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax DA* 200 mm f/2.8

Asking Price
590.00 EUR

Item Location
Frankfurt (Germany)

Item Description
Item condition

The lens is in near perfect cosmetic condition. There are some very small scuff marks on the hood (see picture) and perhaps some very minor marks on the mount (see also picture). Worst case expect only the very slightest of usage signs.

Optically and mechanically, the lens is also (at least) in near perfect condition. I performed some resolution tests with it and it seems to be a very good specimen. No manufacturing problems or defects that I could detect.

The lens was bought in May/June 2013 from a German dealer. Buyer gets original invoice; might still be under warranty after sale, but I can’t promise anything. Offer includes original box, papers (including blank warranty card), pouch, hood, caps.

According to several reports, the lens covers full frame, so it is a good investment in case Pentax does decide to release a full frame camera.

If you need additional pictures or information, please ask.

The lens is relatively hard to come by used. If you feel the price is too high, make me an offer.

Price reduced to 590 !

This is a great and lightweight tele option (almost half the weight of a 70-200/2.8). This particular sample is quite sharp at all apertures, including corners wide open. Also, it's a real beauty to look at, comparable in mechanical quality to Zeiss DSLR lenses, and of course it is weather-sealed.

Note as well that this is a real 200 mm lens. It's longer than the Sigma and Tamron 70-200/2.8 lenses at 200 mm and even longer than the Pentax 60-250/4.0 at 250 mm, especially at close range. Autofocus is very snappy, too.

Example at f/2.8:



Center crop 100 %:



Corner crop 100 %:
