Bought this two weeks ago new, but cannot warm to it. It's in mint condition and been out of the house twice now. The plastic end cap has some very slight marks to it from being in the drawer, but everything else is pristine.

No box, though it will be securely packaged.

Fotga UV filter included. I've got with box for his.

£135 including Special Delivery.

I have one.... it has the same optics as the 40mm f2.8 limited, and is a superb lens for detail and colour.

I can personally recommend these lenses, at the price they are fetching they are a steal!!

I'm in the North of Scotland.

I'm happy enough to send the lens to you though.

Can't understand this..

If I didn't have one I would buy it myself! Perhaps the photo is off-putting with all those filters stacked on the lens, but this is a lens with the same outstanding optics as the 40mm Limited lens, and the smallest Pentax DSLR lens ever made, with crisp accurate autofocus and aperture, with great performance and an addictive and useful angle of view........sharper and better rendering than many (most?) Pentax zoom lenses......

.....hasn't anyone even made an offer? Weird!

I totally agree with Graham. I had one and sold it and that was the only sale I regretted immediately. I have the Ltd version now but tbh the XS copy I had was a tad sharper wide open.

To sum up the XS: itís very usably sharp from wide open, across the whole frame. In my experience it focused very quickly and accurately. The focal length is useful and versatile. And it is very inconspicuous so suitable for on the street.

Good luck with the sale.

Great lens, someone should buy it, especially if they own a K-01, it works like a dream with this body.

Another bump.

Please note that the actual lens does not have that massive filter attached to the front that I have pictured and actually looks like this.
