[SOLD] Pentax F 28mm F2.8

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax F 28mm F2.8

Asking Price
225 USD

Item Description
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I've marked it Excellent, but it might as well pass for "Like new".

Purchased from the member of this forum. Worked great on my K20D. Has to give way to (soon arriving) FA35.

The previous owner mentioned some backfocus. I have applied correction on K20D and the lens focuses accurately.

Included are Pentax front cap, ASAHI UV filter, generic back cap. Also included is the original box of the lens.

Here are the lens pictures:

And a couple of quick, unedited image samples taken with my K20D with autofocus ON:

I am surprised that it is still here...I thought it would have been gobbled up just for the focal length. It is a superb f2.8 lens, ideal for indoor group shots and comes in a very small package.

it's a 28. even if it's a 24 2.8, I still wouldn't consider it. I need something around 20mm with a 200 price tag.

28mm on an APS-C corresponds to roughly a 42mm equivalent in full-frame, thus a good choice as standard lens, and wider and cheaper alternative to the 35/2.

What camera the previous user having back focus had?
Would you exchange it for probably front focussing sigma 30/1.4 and me paying for shipping sigma and you 28/2.8? [EDIT]
(wich most likely is OK, but if it's not it is not economical to fix it here - has to be shipped to japan etc).
Shipping would be 30$ to Ca (incl. insurance). Approx the same from Ca to EU.

ytterbium,
Previous owner has mentioned occasional BF on his K10D. He said the problem was gone since he switched to K20D.

I have k200d - i belive it focusses in similar manner to k20d, only slower. What do you say about that exchange?
Guess i should put my Sigma on ebay .

wavecurrent - PM replied

ytterbium - I don't think one could complain on the focus speed with this lens regardless which camera is used. This is not a glass-heavy zoom. It's a compact prime - much less glass to move.
