That is an awesome deal for the F50/1.7 ... I got mine for $60 with a damaged filter ring and I thought I was doing great.

You will love that lens. It is awesome... great find!

LBA - SMC Pentax-F 1:1.7 50mm

I haven't bought a lens in a while, and I just couldn't resist grabbing this nice autofocus 50mm cheap. I snatched a BIN for $49.99...

...first the lens:

(Glass is perfect, minor cosmetic blemishes on the lens itself. Good deal!)

My first shot with it:

Pentax K10D, 1/200s, f/2.8, 50.0mm, iso100
(Click for a little bigger version.)


One that I really liked from my neighbor Dot's garden:

Japanese Painted Fern
Pentax K10D, 1/30s, f/4.0, 50.0mm, iso200

(Click for a little bigger version.)


I posted a little gallery in my way-too-big Equipment gallery here.

Thanks for looking!

Haha, that gallery is never too big. Your macros of your lenses are great. LBA never looked so good!

LOL, thanks Pete. I will say that most of the lenses there get regular use.

Congrats! I picked up the same lens along with a SMC F50mm 1.7, SMC F 35-105mm and a SF10 for $135 shipped.

Im yet to try it out. The flowers look great though.
