FA* 28-70/2.8 under $500 from Robert's
Posted By: Scintilla, 07-15-2016, 06:16 PM

Roberts Camera: Your Vision. Your Camera Store.

Description mentions light hazing and "beginnings of fungus". Still, $490 is far enough under the price trend I saw in the database that I figured this one was worth mentioning, especially from a dealer that offers a 6-month warranty.

The haze is problematic. Makes a great lens normal.

This lens has been listed on Robert's and eBay store for a long time. Also the price trend in PF database is not reliable. Any seller can register and add a price they want in the database. Check eBay sold listings average price and minus 10%-20% for local deals.

I was at the only brick and mortar in town a few weeks ago and witnessed representatives from Roberts taking in "old" camera equipment (new inventory for their store) for cash or slightly higher store credit amounts. They were quite picky with what they would take and what they wouldn't but man they weren't giving these poor people anywhere near what the lenses were actually worth. The people thought they were getting something for their old junk so I guess they were happy and thats all that matters.
