[SOLD] Pentax SMC-A 35-70mm f/3.5-4.5 razor-sharp zoom

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax SMC-A 35-70 f/3.5-4.5 razor-sharp zoom

Asking Price
$70

Item Description
This lens is stupid-sharp. Really, that's how I'm opening up this sales post, because it's incredible. It's the sharpest compact zoom lens I've ever used, with any system, even in the macro mode. It's prime-sharp wide open at f/3.5. I don't know how Pentax does it, but they do it well.

This is an Pentax-A lens with auto-aperture contacts on the rear so that exposure is calculated automatically for all digital cameras. Very easy to shoot with, and smaller than many prime lenses. Comes with front and rear caps and a slightly beat-up 49mm HOYA UV filter. Did I mention how sharp it is?

Here is an UNSHARPENED 100% crop from this lens, WIDE OPEN at f3.5 (excuse the high ISO, it's been overcast here lately):



And here is that full image, just sharpened up a little:



And here are images of the actual lens for sale:
