Wanted, opinions

I have been wanting to upgrade my K10D for a long time...
I have a Pentax M 135 3.5 that is above mint, actually looks right out of the box.
Could people please give me an opinion on the value of this lens.
I never want to part with it, but if it can get me closer to my dream, you never know

Thanks,

Randy

I can't see getting enough for a 135/3.5 to get you a ton closer to a k5

M 135 Value?

Hi Randy,
Sorry to say this, but I paid about $50.00 for one less than 2 years ago, and I think that's still the going rate. The lens review section lists the value as $53.00 USD.
Even in flawless condition, it's still a very easy-to-obtain lens and I'd guess $100.00 would be a top price.
It's a great, sharp and compact telephoto, well worth hanging onto.
Good Luck~
Ron

that's what I thought... oh, well, maybe getting down on my knees and begging is the next step
You are right about the sharpness... I took it out of my bag for the first time in a couple of years and wondered after using it why I ever put it away... I just wish it could focus closer, though

thanks

slip,I just bought one the other day and it is in mint condition with the original black hard case pouch for $35.00.So it really depends on what buyers are willing to pay.The test shots I have done with it on the K5 so far is really indicating to me that you should hang on to it.They don't take up too much space and for what you'll probably get for it wouldn't justify in selling it and losing a very good lens.

Your wish will come true if you buy a set of extension tubes.

I have another mint copy with original box, I would not sell mine at the price they go for.
