Pentax K smc 30mm 2.8 later version

Hi.

Just bought a smc Pentax K 30mm 2.8 later version in good condition.

Late version in that the text looks like the M-series lenses and smc with small letters.

Is this lens very rare because I cant find any pictures on the internet?

Regards

The lens itself is quite rare, and it seems to keep its value surprisingly well. Snap a picture of your version and I'd be happy to add it to the lens database!

The first version is harder to find, as it was only in production for two years. Note these are the same lens, the difference is just cosmetic with the lettering.

Here are pictures of both versions:

K 30/2.8
