[SOLD] Pentax FA 135mm f/2.8 Lens Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax FA 135mm f/2.8 Lens

Asking Price

Item Description
The lens is in good cosmetic condition as you can see from the pictures below. The glass is free of scratches, haze, or fungus. The aperture blades are dry and snappy. Auto focus is fast and accurate on both my DS and K20D. It comes with both front and rear lens caps.

This is a great lens with excellent optical performance: sharp wide open, contrasty and good bokeh. It has a minimum focusing distance of 0.7 m so you can almost use it as a macro lens. Get this lens and pair it with a fast 50mm, you can have the whole range of the DA*50-135mm lens covered in a much smaller package.

I haven't bought or sold any items here but I have 100% feedback rating on Ebay (ID stonelette). If you have any questions about this item, please let me know.

Happy Holidays!

Additional Details
I purchased the lens used from KEH a few years ago and am selling it because the focal length is a bit long for me and I have not used it for a while.

Please send me a private message if interested in the item!

I got rid of my DA* 50-135mm for this lens and I have no regrets whatsoever...
Focusing is very quick.

Most of the shots I made with this lens were family snapshots which I won't post here. Below are some pictures I took at the 2006 Republic of Texas Biker Rally here in Austin using this lens on my istDS. As you can see from the EXIF information, these pictures were all taken at ISO 800 or 1600. It wouldn't have been easy without a large aperture lens.
