Pentax Takumar-A 28-80mm f/3.5-4.5 Lens, Only $35, W/W Ship

Asking Price
$35

Item Description
Last item I'm putting up today is a Pentax Takumar-A 28-80mm f/3.5-4.5 zoom lens. I'm listing the condition as "Fair" because of a flaw that could be unimportant or significant, depending on how you plan to use this lens. This lens seems to be unable to focus to infinity past 40mm or so. The lens simply doesn't turn far enough for it to happen. It still focuses to infinity before that, as you can tell from the first sample picture which was taken at infinity, and at 28mm. It is sharp in these focal lengths as well. The macro mode also works excellently, and produces sharp pictures. Much sharper than what I was expecting from a non-SMC lens.

Here are pictures of the lens. There is wear on the body, but the glass is in near-mint shape with just tiny, tiny marks and dust:






And here are pictures taken with this lens:







So, if you use this lens as a 28mm landscape lens, and then a portrait or macro lens at other focal lengths, you will be very pleased in my opinion. Thanks!

Lens is on hold pending payment sometime next week. Further offers still welcome, but lens will most likely be sold next week.

Just $20, free shipping, great Pentax-brand quality. This is the last bump before rescinding.
