    The item will end in less than 2 days, I am selling this as my last batch of excessive but good items to cut my lens accumulation. This is a great 28mm for the price, it works quite alright on Sony A7. I prefer it on FF for the 28mm view. I sell because I have repeating lens in the same focal length with Tamron adaptall-2 28mm f/2.5. I choose the later one to keep to share the usage with my Pentax gear; otherwise, this 28mm works better on overall image quality.

    I had a K-mount copy with this Kiron prime lens and the following shots were made a while ago with Pentax K10D

    I had vivid and positive memory on this lens and hence I re-purchased on Konica AR mount for Sony use. If you are looking for a dependable 28mm that excels in MF with good feel and precision, I recommend this Kiron prime lens. The negative on this 28mm is a bit bulky with a 67mm filter thread. It is a bigger 28mm than others but well worth your attention if you want good sharpness, reasonably good bokeh and great manual focus feel. Bokeh has circular ringed lights which I like and much prefer over hexagon shaped bokeh lights but some may find the overlapping ringed lights to be busy. Bokeh is subjective, I like the two shots above.
