[SOLD] DA 70mm Limited

After selling my fisheye lens yesterday, I started thinking about how little I actually use my 70mm Limited and I've decided to sell it as well. It's only been mounted a handful of times and produces some wonderful results, but I just don't spend much time with its focal length. I should mention that I sent it to Pentax once because I was curious about the barrel wobble - they said it was normal with the 70mm but made some minor adjustments anyway. It's in pristine condition and will come with the pouch, manuals and the box (with UPC removed for the rebate).

I'm asking $385, which will include insured shipping within the continental United States. Other countries and areas, please PM me. I've got some feedback as a seller on this forum as well as 100% feedback on eBay with this same username. Thanks!

I've lowered the price a little and I'm willing to entertain offers that aren't very far off from my asking price. Thanks!

Due to a temporary (but serious) error at my bank, I really need some money quick. I've lowered the price again and I honestly think this is a great deal. Thanks for looking.

Absolute BARGAIN, that's a serious chunk below retail.

honestly if I were interested in DA lenses I would buy this in a heartbeat, but I need lenses that I can invest in for both my digital and film bodies... that is a really good deal though.

Are you sure?

I thought the DA series was optimized for the APS-C sensor and that you would get vignetting on the FF camera.

I think you are correct that they are optimized for ASP-C however they work on full frame as far as I now, but with some vingnetting when it's opened up wide.

I think that I read that even w/o that noticeable vignetting... google it... DA40 was like almost 1:1 old full frame pancake

sorry Im talking about aperture rings. Im aware that the 40 and 70 ltd are 'full frame'. I use an MX so no aperture ring is a no-go.

Back to the topic at hand, will somebody buy this lens from frostugh, I've had marketplace transactions with him in the past and he is a stand up fellah. A good price on this lens too.
