[SOLD] Pentax SMC-F 35-70mm f/3.5-4.5 Macro Zoom Lens

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax SMC-F 35-70mm f/3.5-4.5 Macro Zoom Lens

Asking Price
$55 USD

Item Description
Probably the sharpest <$300 zoom lens I've ever used, the SMC F 35-70 macro. It's amazingly sharp even wide open, at all focal lengths. It somehow manages to get even sharper in the macro mode, which lets you get VERY close to your subject. I was able to get some great flower/bug macro shots with this lens.

The condition is excellent, with just some tiny, tiny marks/dust along the edge bevel of the front and rear glasses. They're the kind of marks that could easily be hidden if I was that kind of seller, given how insignificant they are. But of course, I'm an honest seller so I take pictures showing them off instead of trying to hide them. They certainly have no effect on function or image quality.

It comes with front and rear Pentax caps, and a 49mm Minolta UV filter.

This lens is fantastic. I always have fun when I use it and it's compact size makes it all the better. The focal length is great (for my shooting style anyway) and the extra reach over the kit lens is very useful, as is the close focus feature. I have a special place in my heart for the F series, they seem to have so much more character than the FAs. A real gem, just like its big brother, the F 70-210mm.

Thanks a lot for the recommendation, Ian! I hope this will sell quick so someone will get a great lens ASAP!
