Dear all,

It is with regret that I am selling my SMC 28-70mm F2.8 FA* power zoom lens. I have the new 24-70mm and I mostly work outside so the weather resistance means I now only use the 28-70mm.

It is a rare lens known for being very sharp and giving a lovely bokeh effect.

I have a link to the advert below and there is also a YouTube vid to show the lens in more detail and its functionality when attached to a K1 body.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Pentax-SMC-28-70mm-f2-8-FA-star-power-zoom-lens/254321851193

As these lenses do not come up very often, I thought I would post in case there is any interest from Pentax enthusiasts.

Any questions, let me know
regards
Oliver

I've got the interest but unfortunately not the wherewithall
You comment in the ebay ad that you have bought a more recent version. How about maintaining your membership and showing us what it can do?

Hi David,
You wish to see pics from old lens or new lens....or both?

Simply that this site is for showing off (a) Pentax gear and (b) Pentax results. Owning lenses like that one suggests you are a serious photographer and we like to see nice pictures - particularly those that highlight good gear we seldom see.
