Pentax FA 20mm f/2.8 Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax FA 20mm f/2.8

Asking Price
535.00 USD

Item Location
Oakland, California (United States)

Item Description
Pentax FA 20mm f/2.8 lens in beautiful condition. Purchased from Japan via eBay not quite a year ago when I first bought my K-1. I have recently dipped my toe in the medium format waters so am letting this lens go since my 645 35mm f/3.5 provides similar coverage. The lens coatings are blemish free. There is no haze, fungus or oil present in the lens. It functions as it should mechanically. It did not require AF fine tuning on my K-1. The lens will come with its Pentax front and rear caps and Pentax soft case. Price included PayPal fee and domestic shipping via USPS Priority Mail with insurance and tracking. An international buyer will receive a $15 credit toward the actual shipping cost.

Thanks for looking!

How does this lens sharpness compare to FA 31?

It would be best to read the user reviews here on the forum for both lenses to get a better idea of their respective strengths and weaknesses. Sharpness can depend on many factors i.e. shutter speed, aperture, ISO combination used, etc. The field of view is broader of course with the 20mm than with the 31mm. I found this lens to be very sharp. One of the features I really like about it is that its minimum focus distance is pretty short, which means you can get up close and wide at the same time, which can be interesting and fun.
