Another vote for 35-70. I bagged one via auction for 19.99 in November and its a cracker.

The topic can't be split, so best to start a new thread in the Classified section.
Best regards, John

From personal experience I would steer clear of the FA 28-80 3.5/4.7. Apart from being slow the image quality is questionable,

The best lens in the range you want is in my opinion the FA 24-90 3.5/4.5. But it does sell for 150/200 today !

Having had one, I totally agree with your comment about the 28-80 - in fact I think you were being generous in saying that the "image quality is questionable" because my own opinion of it was absolutely "abysmal" on both film and digital (k-5)
K-3 II, K-3 and a K-70 from SRS (having now relegated the K-30 /"K-50" to a backup body), & some Sigma and Pentax lenses (and a lot of old 35mm gear!)

Agreed. The difference between the 28-80 and the 24-90 is reflected in the prices they command. By the time I bought a digital DSLR, the buttons on my old 28-80 had fallen off and I simply chucked it in the bin.

Luckily I only paid around 35 quid s/h for it and finally sold it on for about 1/2 that about 15 yrs later, so didn't lose a lot on the "deal"

Thanks John. I'm awaiting a response from a seller before I post in the Classifieds.
