Item Description
This is an excellent copy of the FA*24 mm f2. It is a lens I love a lot, and I'm selling it cause I'm switching brand.
I'm a birder and I'm buying new Nikon super telephotos with full frame, so I need cash.
It is sharp and contrasted straight from wide open, see reviews in this forum.
AF is very, very fast and this is the lens I have used it for all the pictures of my children playing
Optically the lens is free of mark, scratch, works perfectly.
Cosmetically no mark on the paint.
Comes with Hood, front and rear caps - front cap from Pentax but more modern that the original one. Allows to put and remove cap with lens Hood.
Soft pouch
Some bad copies of this lens have being tested but this one is really good. Don't miss it !

Thanks for the shots of the lens. Do you have shots made with the lens?

It looks mint! Mine is almost shabby by comparison, but it produces beautiful images.

Original Poster
See this one. The hair gives an idea of the sharpness. Color rendering is excellent and AF is fast enough to catch up
Indoors in Mac Donalds...
Edit : image shack degrades the image al lot.
Added crop on the face. At 800 iso, a bit Noisy

At the dog training school for disabled peoples. jpeg straight out of the camera
All the images of this lens are punchy, contrasted and sharp. The corners needs to be stopped down to recover
Good for contra light landscapes. At f8 it is sharp corner to corner
(Resolution suffers a bit here due to filesize limitation)
