Adorama used (E-) DA 40mm Ltd: $209
Posted By: JinDesu, 08-29-2014, 08:35 AM

Used Pentax SMCP-DA 40mm f/2.8 ED Limited Edition Pancake Lens for Digital SLR Cameras - Black

Thought I might post this here, would have gotten it but I have a 40mm XS anyways. $209 for a 40 Ltd is a pretty good price AFAIK.

E- category is: "Barrel shows signs of wear and/or moderate usage. Lens glass may have some dust / spots that should not affect picture quality."

How is it that dust/spots on the lens glass wouldn't affect the picture quality?

The units are checked over and tested before being rated. And most used items come with a 6-month warranty (which includes a 30-day returns period) if it isn't as described.

Incidental dust on internal elements are sort of a fact of life with used lenses and they generally do not affect picture quality. I have bought a couple of used lenses from Adorama and their rating system is accurate. An E- lens from Adorama will be in as nice or better condition than most lenses offered on the marketplace here or on eBay.

I picked up the 15mm limited their 3 weeks ago, E rated for $409 and am thrilled with the condition and the photo results. I won't hesitate to use them in the future.
