[SOLD] New Pentax SMC P FA 24-90mm f/3.5-4.5 AL (IF) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
New Pentax SMC P FA 24-90mm f/3.5-4.5 AL (IF)

Asking Price
USD 340 - UPDATE: Reduced to USD 310

Item Description

UPDATE: I have listed this on Ebay now:

I think that the Microsoft Cashback program is currently offering 25% cashback, which means that you would only be paying USD 255 for this lens (plus shipping).

I would prefer to sell it on this forum, so I have reduced the asking price. Tomorrow I will put it on Ebay @ 340 with Buy It Now. Currently the MSN Live Cashback is 25% which would make the price USD 255 (unfortunately the Cashback is only available for US residents). Let me know if you are interested in buying it using Buy It Now, and we can arrange that I post it so you buy it and get the cheaper price.

I got two at a good price and am keeping the other for myself. I am fairly new on the forums here even though I have been lurking for a while. You can also see my feedback on Ebay where I am 'e_c_f'. I have also been active on Dsl Reports for a long time.

Please see the following thread for a good description of the lens and to give you an idea of what they have previously sold for on the forum:

[SOLD] Brand New Pentax FA 24-90mm Autofocus Zoom Lens f3.5-4.5

Bump and edit...

I changed the shipping destinations to worldwide. I can probably be a little more trusting here than on ebay :-) Payment method can also be discussed based on circumstances.

Please don't hesitate to ask any questions or pm me if you think I am out of line on pricing. I have never sold on Pentaxforums before, so I'll take all the advice I can get.

Please see above for updated price.

This is a nice lens with a range that makes it great for walking around. It has longer range than the kit lens and it is almost a full stop faster in the long end, making it a lot more convenient.

Popular Photography said:

CONCLUSION: A top-notch wide-to-tele zoom providing the very useful 24mm focal length and reasonably close focus without a macro mode. Performance deficits at seldom-used minimum aperture and above-average distortion at 90mm are minor in light of its outstanding overall performance in both lab and field.
