SMC Pentax-A Zoom 35-105mm "Stack 'o Primes" Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
SMC Pentax-A Zoom 35-105mm "Stack 'o Primes"

Asking Price
$75.00 USD

Item Location
West of Charlotte, NC (United States)

Item Description

This is one of those film era zoom lenses that lives up to the legend, and performs well on today's digital cameras. Two-touch zoom/focusing. "A" function aperture ring for program exposure. Macro mode at all zoom settings.

I would put the condition between "Good" and "Very Good." There are some signs of use on the body and caps, but nothing that suggests abuse. Focusing is smooth. Zoom action is firm, but I think that may be the nature of this lens. I only notice this when turning the ring when not on a camera.

There is some internal dust, as would be expected for any lens this age. Nothing that would affect image quality. Coatings are good. There is a small mark on the front element that you have to get the light just right to see; I was not able to photograph this. Again, I think no impact on IQ. No indication of separation, coating loss or fungus. Aperture is dry and snappy. Very slight evidence of use on the mounting surface. Includes genuine Pentax front and rear lens caps.

Plenty of life left in this beautifully made lens.

Please inspect the images closely and feel free to ask any questions you may have. I can usually ship within three days (commonly the next day) depending on the weekend and unexpected changes in my work schedule.
