FA 35mm 2 (reduced), (Sold -->)Sig 30mm, Sigma 28mm, 35mm 2.4

Hi! Some people have too many nifty 50, well, I have to many lenses near the 30mm focal length point haha. Being my favourite focal length (I mostly enjoy shooting street style photography), it's not exactly a surprise that I have accumulated them over the years. All lenses have been used by me and are part of my "collection". They have always been well treated .

If you think my prices aren't fair, just send me an offer.

Shipping is 10$ to Canada and 15$ to the US. I will combine shipping if need me. I also have a K-5ii for sale.

Pictures at the end.

I accept Paypal, Etransfer for Canadians and personal check as well.

SOLD 1. Sigma 30mm 1.4 DC -- 275 USD plus shipping

This lens is in great condition all around, with original front and rear cap, paper work and lens hood. The lens performs beautifully all around. Some people reported focus issue with this lens, but I have never noticed anything like that on both my K-5ii (one is for sale btw, ). I mostly use center point focus, and recompose a little if needed, and I honestly can't fault the lens for having erratic focus. I find it perfectly usable at 1.4 and it only gets sharper as you close it down. Although I'm not a pixel peeper, I dislike soft images, and I have no problem using this lens at 1.4. DoF does get very thin though, so one must be aware of that when shooting wide open, of course.


2. Pentax FA 35mm f/2 --- 325 -->310 USD shipping included

The lens is is pristine condition, with the original hood and both original caps. Glass is scratch free and I don't see dust inside, although I assume one that search hard enough could find some. It focusses fast, has a shorter minimal focus distance than the Sigma which I always liked and is sharp right from f/2. It's also very small, which is nice. It doesn't quite have the feel of a limited lens, but it does feel more "pro" than the DA AL primes (50mm 1.8 and 35mm 2.4) series. Nothing wrong to say about that lens really.

SOLD - Sigma High-Speed wide II (AF lens) 28mm 1.8 --- 90USD plus shipping

This lens is a little odd haha. I really, really love it. It was my first fast normalish prime and I immediately fall in love with its personality. The lens is pretty much like an old dog that should probably have died years ago but just keeps on surprising you. Let me explain.
I purchased that lens on eBay from a reputable seller for about 120USD 2 years ago or so. It was listed as "as is" because it had what appeared to be fungus inside. Mostly because I'm crazy, I decided to purchase it anyway. I received the lens and sure enough, when I looked through it with a flash light, I could see something strange on some glass inside the lens. I'm not sure if it's fungus, or haze or something else, but it never changed since then. I always kept it aport from my other lenses just in case, but I doubt there anything living in there. Anyway, picture wise, I could never notice any problem I have included 5-7 pictures that I took with this lenses. There mostly snapshots, I didn't spent hours looking for "good" sample pictures, it's real life usage.
It's not all. The lens barrel is in bad shape. The plastic that Sigma used to use wasn't exactly of great quality I believe. It's now a little bit sticky, and doesn't look so good anymore. So yeah, the lens isn't a beauty, but I find it really easy to love nevertheless for all the fun it provided me.
Also, not sure why, but the lens is recognized as a f/1.7 by the camera body (and marked as a 1.8 on the lens itself). If memory serves me well (don't have my camera with me at the moment) it goes something like this : 1.7, 1.8, 2, etc. )
Come with both caps, generics. No hood.


SOLD Pentax DA AL 35mm 2.4 (plastic fantastic) --- 90 USD plus shipping
I bought this lens a month after it became available (I think it was 200$ back then!!?) and used it extensively for family and friends indoor gathering. I used it for wedding as well. The body of the lens is in very good condition. The rear plastic mount as quite a lot of small scratches for all the usage, but nothing out of the ordinary. At that price, It's a steel. It focusses super fast and accurately, it's very sharp corner to corner from 2.4 and it's as light as it gets.
Comes with original box and paper work.
Also comes with 49mm pentax lens cap, generic rear cap, metal wide angle lens hood with matching 62mm (or is it 67mm?) lens cap that fits at the end of the lens hood. See pictures if my explanation doesn't make sense to you .

I liked my 30, too. It was my museum lens (fast and right FL).

I'd like to set a hold on the sigma 30mm. I have to check my bank account before I can buy. Is that possible?

You should PM me and we can work something out, no problem. I don't mind putting the lens on hold for you, but contact me first so that we have an agreement of some sort .

Thank you!

Yeah, 28-30mm is the perfect focal length it seems. I really like the Sigma 30mm 1.4 actually. I didn't want to make my for sale thread needlessly long, but I am keeping a copy of the Sigma 30mm 1.4 as my sole 30mm lens. (I'm also tempted to keep the plastic fantastic since it's not worth much and it performs really well...). I bought simultaneously two Sigma a few months ago (long story), paid the same thing for both and both were in perfect condition. I tried both, and sure enough, they were performing exactly the same as well. I'm selling the one I used the most because I'm confortable saying that it works flawlessly. Anyway, the Sigma 30mm 1.4 is really a nice lens for such a price.

I've seen the same behaviour on the same brand of lens I tried on my camera in Australia. Heaven only knows what's going on there, but it proves that yours isn't a one-off freak occurrence.

Interested in the Sigma 30 1.4

Is the Sigma 30 1.4 still available? Sounds like it's in excellent condition. Are you the original owner? If I buy what is the process, Paypal, money order? Is this HSM version, forgot to ask? Thanks!

Steve
