    Default Where to buy used Pentax Prime Lens?

    Any shops in town area that carries a wide range of used Pentax lens? A shop that can actually allow me to try out the various lens.... Thanks.

    I assume u are talking abt 2nd hand lens.

    I know TCW (The camera workshop) is selling 2nd hand lenses (including pentax). But their price usually more expensive then BnS.

    Testing wise , I am not sure if they allow that .

    Well, the Pentax outings has one of the most comprehensive lens testing area, both current and discontinued models. Just name a lens you want to try out and someone will try and present it to you.

    But in honesty, 2nd-hand shops hardly stock "good" Pentax lenses. Even if they do, they're quickly snapped up by eagle-eyed folks.

    Better call up and check if they got the lens in stock for you to test if not it'd be a wasted trip
