Selling as I'm not using it too much at the moment and I've bought some other lenses for my other system so I'm looking to recoup some costs.

If there is any interest I'll put some images up.

Front and rear caps, lens hood and boxed.

Optics bright, no issues, great little lens.

Selling for 300 inc P&P

Well it's a lot less chunky than the 24-70 isn't it! Safely received with many thanks, Jon

A super lens and a good buy for Jon but I can't help thinking its parting will be a future regret for you Gareth. Just sayin... hope I'm wrong!

Best wishes.

What you need are lenses, more lenses, bigger lenses, better lenses, faster lenses, vintage lenses and when you have these, your pictures will be perfect!

I'm looking forward to using it and, after giving it some thought, am not as sniffy as I was about the relatively pedestrian aperture range and in particular what that means for control over depth of field.

I've never had a problem with the Sigma 17-70 f2.8-4 C on APSC - a workhorse lens for me on the K3iii. And when you do the maths, you have better control over depth of field at the same distances on full frame with the 28-105 f3.5-5.6. So other than impact on shutter speed or ISO, where the K-1 performs well anyway, there's not as much compromise involved as I liked to think.....

Hopefully one day I'll take a photo with it that's good enough to share....
