Item Description
Great, fast lens for indoor shooting. Very sharp, good color... all around a great lens. Nice focal length for indoor shooting too. Excellent condition, no flaws to speak of except a little scratch on the lens cap.

Comes with front and rear caps, soft bag, and lens hood.

Also, if you wish to have me list this on Ebay to take advantage of Microsoft's Bing rebate promotions, I will be happy to do that, but I'll ask you to cover those fees.

Feel free to pm me with any questions you might have.

Thanks,

Mike

Great indoor lens!

I have to agree - this is the optimal lens for indoor shooting without a flash. I was just testing this very thing tonight, taking candids of people (who don't hold still) and found I got better overall results with this lens than even the F50/1.4 - plus the focal length of the FA35/2 is usually better as well.

I found f/2.5 with ISO 1600 or 3200 on my K-x worked best. Since it generally works better with SR off, you could probably get similar results using a film camera with, for example, Fuji Pro 400H or 800Z film set at ISO 1600 or 3200.

I have a copy of this lens. I like the focal length on a crop sensor. The auto focus works well and it's sharp too!

Yeah, sorry about that. I thought I had a buyer but turned out I didn't.

I really do like this lens, but I have way too many lenses now. Plus the homebuying urge has finally set it, so something has to go... Thanks for commenting!
