Pentax DA SMC 70 2.4 Limited - Price drop to $260

Item for Sale
Pentax DA 70 2.4 Limited

Asking Price
275.00 - $260 USD

Item Location
Nebraska (United States)

Item Description
Like everyone else (or 3 or 4 others on the forum) I am selling my DA 70 2.4. I finally have come to the conclusion that I have to buy the 50-135 because everyone raves about it for portraits.

Why should you buy this one instead?
1. $260 is a screaming deal on this
2. I just got it back from Eric after a cleaning of blades (which becomes a problem on some of them), cleaning the optics, and tightening the lens (some of these become loose overtime because of the thread seal that is used in some of Pentax's lenses).
3. I have a great rep on the forum!

Condition - It has recently been cleaned and everything so optically it is like new (there is 1 dust fiber in there). Exterior of the glass is clean. The body has a few marks, but overall it is in excellent condition.

Comes with the hood, caps, and lens. I don't have the pouch. I will post pictures this afternoon.

In US $260 shipped. Get it now while you can!

International with good feedback PM for shipping prices.

Holy smokes! Even with the 77, I'd consider buying this!

Recently cleaned, you need to get it! Eric gives six month warranty on it.

The lens I could afford, the subsequent divorce I couldn't.

I have this and the sigma 50-150, I prefer to use this over the zoom. Shame. :P

Pictures of the lens and the last one is a picture I took the other day of my middle daughter. Right out of the box - wide open. Pretty swell bokeh on close ups. And the colors are great. The rendering is so similar to the M 85 that I used to own.

As far as using the DA 70 over the Sigma 50-150 - I am not too surprised. However, I already have the DA*55, and well it is my go to prime for portraits already. And the Sigma 50-150 is loved, but I've heard if you can tolerate the slow AF the 50-135 is the ticket for portraits. I already tolerate it with my 55 so I am good.

Hi, I am interested in the lens, however, I haven't posted any messages yet on the forum. You might be able to PM me and we can take it from there.
I don't have any reps here, but you can check my eBay account: maksatgo.

Thanks !

It sucks to be an APS-C seller these days.

It sucks even more if one doesn't know that this lens is FF-capable

True, but many don't know as it is labeled DA and people make a distinction with the infamous FA. I loved the 70.
