FS: SMC PENTAX DA 70mm f2.4 Ltd


Link Posted 08/04/2015 - 19:59
I'm offering for sale my Pentax DA 70mm f2.4 Ltd which is in excellent condition with totally clear optics and a good snappy iris, no marks or damage whatsoever and a smooth turning focus ring. No autofocus issues. Compact and lightweight and produces very sharp images. Boxed (the box is a little worn round the edges) and complete with front and rear caps, lens hood and Pentax leatherette pouch.

Reason for sale is that my go-to lenses for 95% of my photography are the 20-40 Ltd and the 50-135 DA*. I find I'm just not using the 70mm Ltd, excellent though it is.

Realistically priced to sell at 245 to include insured RMSD.

Still hoping to sell to a fellow enthusiast on this forum before I leave for France at the weekend.

If not sold it will go on Gumtree/Ebay when I return in May.

would you consider a trade with my SMC Pentax-F 35-105mm F4-5.6 lens?thanks...

Hi happyprince. Thanks but that trade would not interest me. The 35-105 is not a lens I need. I'm really after a cash sale. The only trade that might tempt me is a Pentax D-FA 100mm f2.8 WR macro.

The Pentax DA 70mm f2.4 Ltd lens is now SOLD to forum member Pelle51. Many thanks Per.

That is the last of the lenses and filters I have placed for sale in the PU Classifieds in the past few weeks. ALL SOLD to forum members. Many thanks to all who have shown an interest.

Still 100% Pentax loyal and no thoughts of jumping ship, as several seem to be doing recently. I see Ricoh taking great strides with Pentax, against all odds, and I'm optimistic that the Pentax name will regain the status it had when I bought my first Spotmatic more than 40 years ago.

If anyone is considering parting with their Pentax D-FA 100mm f2.8 WR macro or perhaps a Pentax-fit Sigma 105mm f2.8 EX DG macro HSM version please pm me. I should say that I will not buy from outside the UK (no doubt that contravenes some barmy Brussells ruling but I don't give a fig!).

Just to add to Jim's post to say that the lens has arrived - very well packed and in great condition; as new. Works lovely! So, I can really recommend buying from Jim, all very professional and quick. Many thanks Jim!
