[SOLD] Koboron 28mm f/2.8 Macro Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Koboron 28mm f/2.8 Macro

Asking Price

Item Description
For two years due to the high price of the FA 31mm limited I tried various famous and non famous 28mm f/2 and f/2.8 lenses (inlcluding Vivitar 28mm f/2, RMC Tokina 28mm f/2.8, Vivitar 28mm f/2.8 close focus, SMC Takumar 28mm f/3.5). I did many tests for shaprness and image quality in order to select the best of them all. The winner was Koboron 28mm f/2.8 Macro. I had decided to keep this lens until better replacement is acquired. Well, I bought the Pentax FA 31mm Limited and finally this lens bettered it. It's a regretful sale because this is still the best 28mm lens I've ever seen. But I have gathered so many lenses for the last 3 years which I'm not using that I decided to leave only a few.

The Koboron 28mm f/2.8 is in like new condition. There are no faults of any kind, the lens is clean, no scratches, no fungus, no marks on body or glass, in fact the lens looks like brand new. I 've always used filters to protect the multicoated front element, and when not in use it used to stay in a leather and velvet pouch. It has the "A" pin so it can be used in Aperture Priority mode (Av). The lens is all metal except for the rubber focus grip.

The only reason I'm selling this lens so cheap is because almost no one knows of this brand. But the lens is just great.
