This should not still be for sale. I just acquired one and it is a really sharp lens. Better than my previous FA 50 f/1.4. Highly recommended!

Free bump for a great zoom lens! I had this model for a few years and loved the sharp images, fast f/2.8 on the wide end, and convenient focal length range plus pseudo macro capabilities. A great step up from the kit lens. Good luck with the sale!

I don't think the autofocus is too loud, about in line with most screw drive lenses I think. (I seem to recall that some users believe the 40/2.8 XS is particularly loud to autofocus).

Here is a short YouTube clip I just shot of the lens, attached to my KP, focusing first in live view mode and second with through the viewfinder. This shows how swiftly the lens focuses indoors, under medium artificial lighting conditions.

I just tested my 50-150mm on my new KP and had no issues. This lens also worked great on my K-50 when I had that body.

Thanks for your question. I did not use this lens for video on my K-01 or K-50 for that matter. In fact, I rarely use my Pentax K-mount cameras for any video shooting. So I sadly cannot speak to its video use capabilities, though obviously I note that f/1.4 will let in plenty of light for video applications.

Item for Sale
Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 DC EX HSM

Asking Price
200.00 USD

Item Location
Alexandria, VA (United States)

Item Description
I bought this Sigma 17-50mm about 2 years ago brand new from Adorama, so it still should be covered by the remaining 2 year warranty protection. It is in outstanding condition as I rarely use it. I am very satisfied with its sharp images, large aperture, and silent and quick focusing, but I find myself needing weather resistance more than low light performance from my zooms so I usually have the 18-135 WR mounted on my camera. Indoors, when I need a faster lens, I usually use a prime. Plus I'm trying to pair down my camera lens collection and save up some money for a new laptop.

This lens comes with everything that you get when buying it brand-new: original lens hood, front & rear caps, case, and box. I will include my receipt for warranty purposes but I never had any mechanical trouble with the lens.

The lens is an awesome upgrade/step up to the 18-55mm kit lens. Produces wonderful bokeh and works well in low light even without a flash. Sharp at all focal lengths and very usable wide-open. Build quality is substantial and feels professional. It is heavier and larger than the kit zoom, obviously, but the performance speaks for itself. It scores a 9.4 on average in the sharpness category from user reviews, which is an amazing and quite rare accomplishment for a zoom lens: Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 EX DC HSM Lens Reviews - Sigma Lenses - Pentax Lens Review Database

My asking price is $200, which includes the PayPal fee and priority shipping within the United States; for Canada/Mexico destinations, please add $10.

Thanks for looking! Hope this finds a new home soon - it's a great lens!

Here are pictures of the lens and some sample images it has produced.

If you already have the DA 18-135, I think DA 12-24mm makes sense, or the DA 15mm, or Sigma 8-16 or 10-20mm zooms. But for a single all around zoom that has a nice wide angle and is very sharp, the DA 16-85 is great. I sometimes regret selling mine, though I did find it to be a bit too large, as I had gotten used to the DA 18-135 compact form factor. On the other hand, you might want to consider a fast zoom like Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8, though it is not weather resistant. Would not duplicate your existing lenses and would be a nice complement. Or if you need WR, think about the DA 20-40mm limited zoom - excellently matches your KP!!

Monday morning bump for an awesome, fast, and super sharp prime lens. You can't get a wider aperture at this focal length (or wider) and at this price point! A wonderful indoor lens and for low light (and no flash allowed) places like inside museums. Some say it's a "poor man's" 31mm and given the price difference between the two, and the slight optical differences, I have to say that's an accurate characterization.

thanks for the observation! It is an outstanding compact prime at a very convenient focal length for APS-C (about a normal FOV) and a nice semi-wide angle for full frame. Lighter and shorter than the FA 31mm and far less expensive, but very close optical performance in my experience. There is a reason that Ricoh/Pentax chose to revive/reissue/update this lens with HD coating - it's a real classic and a workhorse prime that is great for many shooting applications.

Item for Sale
FA 35mm f/2

Asking Price
180.00 USD

Item Location
Alexandria, VA (United States)

Item Description
I sadly have made the decision to sell my made-in-Japan FA 35mm f/2, which was my second ever Pentax prime lens after the FA 50mm f/1.4. (Note that this is the original “smc” version and not the updated HD version). I have used this compact and workhorse prime lens a lot over the years but it’s still in outstanding condition and renders images beautifully. I trusted this lens for taking pictures at the hospital following the birth of my children. It’s great for vacations, family photos, low light, and works well on both APS-C and full frame. So why am I selling it? Well, I recently acquired a FA 31mm which is amazing but honestly not that much better than my FA 35. Still, I am a sucker for the limiteds...

Cosmetically and optically in excellent shape. Comes with original hood, both Pentax caps, original box, and original lens bag (not shown). I am the original owner, buying directly from the Pentax Webstore back in 2010.

Asking $180 shipped (CONUS) or add $10 to price for Canada/Mexico destinations.

Here are photos of the lens and some samples.

Item for Sale
Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX

Asking Price
180.00 USD

Item Location
Alexandria, VA (United States)

Item Description
I finally acquired a FA 31mm limited lens after many years of lusting after it. I think I held off for so long in part because I had a very good substitute, the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX (not the newer “Art” version that reportedly has some auto focusing issues). I can’t justify holding onto the Sigma prime now that I have the FA 31, even though it is a faster lens at f/1.4, renders bokeh beautifully and produces a fantastic 3-D effect in some cases. An outstanding “normal” walk around prime lens for APS-C cameras that excels in low light situations.

The lens is in excellent cosmetic and optical condition. Very sharp. No fungus, never been dropped, aperture blades are snappy, autofocuses quickly and accurately on my K-50 and K-01. Comes with original lens hood, original Sigma front cap and rear Pentax caps, and Sigma carrying case. Sorry I don’t have the original product box. And for those of you familiar with this model, this is the “smooth barrel” black finish, not the crinkle finish type.

Asking $180 shipped.
