Pentax 20-35mm FA SMC F 4 wide zoom Sharp!

400.00 USD

Item Description
I bought this lens new and used it on my film bodies (LX through MZ-S). It has been sitting unused in a lens wrap for years. As I have the 15-30 F2.8 for my K-1 I'm not tempted to use it in the future and would like for it to be used again to make fine images.

Lens barrel shows some physical wear but it zooms smoothly, Autofocus works perfectly, glass is clean and unmarred by any defects. Sharp lens on Velvia! I have not tested it with my K-1. Shipped with original Pentax Lenshood, lens caps, and a new Pentax S 100 120 lens wrap.

Superb lens. I once sold one to another forum member and missed it so much I bought a used one from another forum member. Sharp as (or sharper than) the FA 20 prime that I also sold to a forum member. Very nice distortion control for a super wide.
You will not regret owning this lens. It exceeds all expectations for a lens in this price range.

How well does it perform regarding starbursts?

Hmm, I haven't used it in years, and will have to test it for Sunstars at various apertures. Stay tuned..

Thank you Ron, and you remind me why I've resisted parting with this lens for years...

Is that the OEM hood? It doesn't look like it to me. If it's not the OEM one it might vignette on full frame.

I have this lens and the PH-RBA 58mm is indeed the OEM hood and it does not vignette on the K-1.

Whatever camera (maybe phone?) that took the photo looks like it added in some distortion which may be why it looks a little long...

yes I did shoot these sample pics with my iPhone hence the slight distortion, good pickup!
