[ACQUIRED] FA-J 18-35mm f/4.0-5.6 (Europe)

So I bet someone around these parts has this old *istD kit lens and wants to get rid of it. I want to buy it. Preferably somewhere in Europe, but rest of world is fine if willing to ship to Sweden. PM offers or write in the thread!

Looking good. Is this lens plastic mount?! Not that it influences my purchase, I just wonder what Pentax was thinking back in 2003, releasing the very expensive *istD with a plastic kit lens...

Yeah it's plastic, also a very light weight Lens.
Best guess, the lens came out before the ist D. At that time Pentax lower cost film bodies had a plastic mount, mz/zx . Plastic to Plastic worked I guess. My newer film bodies are as follows ist- metal mount, mz30- plastic mount.

Lens paid for, so closing this thread. Thanks. This will make a fun wide angle zoom for my MZ-6
