What is the typical market price of the A or K version of the 1:2.8 24 mm?
I purchased this lens used some years ago and no record.
I am thinking that if it is separation, and it can be professionally repaired to near original specs, i would pay up to about 1.2 times the market price, all things considered.

Any Opinions?

Yusuf , I don't own an A24 2.8 but my A20 2.8 does exactly what youve described above if shot directly towards the sun . It doesn't handle direct sunlight too well either.

hi there!

It is not so good for shooting straight to sun, but with filters and so it is quite ok.

some PP applied in first, but not so much at second.







one with just minimal PP.

I've got the K version of the 24 f2.8. Maybe I just got lucky, but I've never noticed any hazing with my copy and I had no qualms about shooting into the sun with it. However, I don't use it as much as I used to back when I was shooting film so it might be a good idea to dust it off and test it, based upon the experiences some of you are relating. Here's a sample shot from when I used it on film.

I'd suggest checking the lens with all sorts of lighting (diffused and strong ) and various angles for oil smear or haze.
The hazy o/p seems to suggest it.

I have no such issue with my K24/2.8 and consider it one of my most handy and favorite to bring around (even when I have a FA*24, which I often find too big).

Thanks, nice pictures, however the issue I faced is in strong sunlight. Would you be having some pictures to share in strong sunlight?

I only have these readily on flickr.
#1 was pretty strong front light though.


There are a fewmore samples on my flickr if you search under k24.
Some of these are under very strong midday tropicallight, but maybe the angle is not exactly the same as what you have in your sample.

There are a few here who seem to have the same prob as you, while an equal number of folks seem to be ok with theirs.
Maybe there are really large variations between copies too. (not to mention potential aging problems like oil and haze).
You o/p just reminds me of my Yashicamat tlr until I disassembled the lens and cleaned off the oil that had flowed off from the blades.

I have the K24/2.8 and haven’t noticed this issue either. (Only used with the original dedicated plastic hood)

I also have the older K24/3.5 and I prefer this 24mm over the newer 2.8 version.
