Is there anyone here to know that lens and/or can say something about handling, AF speed, optical quality and so on?

Also what do you think is this lens worth, used - but in good condition?


Regards,
Th.


P.S. Would be nice to get a quick answer... (no flames here please, I hate those questions myself... :roll: )

found this http://www.pbase.com/shadzee/pentax_fa_2870mm_f4_al

personally I'd give between 50 and 100 € for it. But I'm usually on a very tight budget...

gone... but maybe for good, since I am looking for a bright AND speedy (AF) lens.

Thanks for comments!

I'd try to find a good deal on a Sigma 24/28-70mm f2.8 or a Tamron 28-75mm f2.8, they are reported to be outstanding lenses.

Hopefully I will have the budget this summer to look for one myself, but for now I gotta put the camera purchases on hold for a while...

Hi Th,

I have the Pentax 28-70mm f4. I love it!!! I have had no problem shooting in low light with it. Maybe someday when I can afford it i might go to a 2.8 version.

One of the better Pentax zooms. Rates an excekkent in SPLOSdb, and very favorable comments at Stan's.

Typical price in good condition one-Bay is $125 - $175
