Item for Sale
Pentax SMC PENTAX DA 70mm f/2.4 Limited Lens with Lens Caps, Hood and Pouch

Asking Price
200.00 USD

Item Location
Bedford, MA (United States)

Item Description
Yet another gem from my lens collection that I am not doing justice to. So I am downsizing my photography gear.

For those of you not familiar with this lens, it is a fast prime - compact, lightweight, well-made portrait lens in very good condition. 105mm equivalent on APC DSLR camera bodies. Ideal for candid and street photography.

This copy works great and takes sharp, beautiful pictures. Autofocus is fast; manual focus is smooth and correctly damped. The glass shows no flaws - fungus, haze, noticeable dust, scratches, etc.

The metal barrel shows brassing and sign of use, but not of abuse. These Pentax Limited lenses are all metal construction, so they are very solid and rugged.

Comes with front and rear lens caps (generic), screw-on metal hood (also generic), and soft storage case/pouch.

I would be happy to answer questions. Here is some additional information on specifications:


The SMC PENTAX-DA 70mm F2.4 Limited lens is exclusively designed for use with PENTAX digital SLR cameras and features an ultra-thin pancake design, along with uni-focal, medium-telephoto optics. With a medium-telephoto perspective, this lens is ideal for many applications including landscape and portraiturescape. High-performance optics ensures outstanding image quality, and provides distinctive visual expression. Materials used for the 70mm F2.4 lens are selected for optimum holding comfort and operability. This little beauty is designed to be extremely thin and lightweight, for go-anywhere portability for casual, day-to-day snapshot photography.

This is a great lens on apsc in my opinion. I have it and the FA 77. Both have strong points. This is smaller and cheaper than the FA 77 and still despite the slower aperture it makes lovely portraits.

To be fair I have no idea what it is like on a k-1 so don't take my apsc comment to mean anything negative - I just can't express an opinion with any conviction about it on the k-1 having never used a k-1.

If I didn't already have a da70, I'd be all over this! Good luck with the sale.
