[SOLD] Pentax K 28mm f/3.5

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax K 24mm f/3.5

Item Description
Up for sale is a Pentax-K 24mm f/3.5 that I have had for about 6 months but haven't been giving the attention it deserves. I believe it has the same lens formula as the well regarded takumar 24/3.5. Have tested it both on film and digital and was delighted particularly by its low distortion and sharpness.

Lens is in near mint condition. Not a mark on the coatings as far as I can tell, and no visible internal dust. No scratches, brassing, or paint loss (even the on aperture ring). Focus is buttery smooth and well damped. Comes with case in excellent+ condition and original strap (still packaged, not shown). Original Pentax front and rear caps.

Feels very solid and is surprisingly hefty for its size.





Note that in the pictures below the lighting make the case look to be in worse condition than it actually is.

Nice lens. But the pictures indicate it's a K 24/3.5, not 28/3.5

Good luck.

Thanks for catching that. It's hard to get the K28/3.5 out of you mind when daydreaming of great lenses.
I guess I can't change the thread title, I have edited the contents though.

I don't have access to them right now. Tonight, I'll take a look at what I have, otherwise I can take some around campus tomorrow if the weather cooperates.

Here a sample image I scanned from inexpensive print film. I believe it was taken at f/11. Along the left side is blurred because my camera doesn't hold the film flat enough on that edge.



If you would like, I can email you the full-size scan that has only been slightly processed (8+MP). It has great resolution, you can see the pattern in the backstop netting even on the furthest side.

I would love to add this to my collection of K-lenses, fits perfectly.
But there is always the additional trouble and costs with customs (+6,5%) and import tax (+19% on top) for us Europeans...
Thank god, in December the free limit for personal imports will be raised from 19€ to 175€.

*free bump*
