Lovely condition Pentax F series 135mm f2.8 - very good condition overall, nice coating, minor dust (as expected for age), beautifully sharp.

Very highly regarded in the reviews over on the other site:

Very good thanks Peter, hope you and yours are well.

In all honesty, I really don't miss my old FA 135mm lens, but can't help having a bit of fun when it's mentioned.

I have very few primes now as my ability and enthusiasm to carry a bag full of them around with me has diminished somewhat in later years. I much prefer the versatility of zooms, and I have the DA* 50-135mm, Sigma 70-200mm, and the DA* 60-250 covering the 135mm focal length and I'm more than happy with the results from all three.

My walkabout bag nowadays contains only DA 12-24 1:4, DA* 16-50 1:2.8, and DA* 60-250mm 1:4, D-FA 100mm 1:2.8 macro lenses, one body, a National Geographic (made by Manfrotto) carbon fibre travel tripod, spare batteries, memory cards and not much else, yet I'm constantly thinking of ways to lighten the load

I've picked up a couple of K-3 II's from here over the last several months and looking forward to having some quality time with them in the very near future. They are quite an improvement over my K-5 II which was my most recent body before these. I don't have the desire to splash out 2K+ on new kit anymore, happy to pick up other's cast-offs at a fraction of their new price.

Keep safe and well amigo.

Sincere apologies to Lennybloke, didn't mean to hijack your for sale thread.

I don't think Lenny minds a free bump, he always has nice kit for sale but over the last 2 years I have been trying to consolidate my kit, and had my last purchase not been the 70-200/2.8 I could've gone for his..

All the best

Enjoy the free bump Lenny, hope the 135/2.8 finds a deserving home

Sorry David - it's a beautiful lens, one of very few F series I have left and if my Samyang 135/2.0 sells first I'll probably withdraw it.
