Item for Sale
Pallas Magenta AM 28 mm f/2.8, M42

Asking Price
25.00 EUR

Item Location
Galway (Ireland)

Item Description
Hello All,

Up for sale is an M42-mount version of the Pallas Magenta AM 28mm f/2.8 lens.

I will only accept PayPal for payment.

Shipping will be via registered post: Inside Ireland, €10. To European member countries, UK, USA, Canada, €25. If you aren’t in one of these places, please send me a message and I’ll give you a quote on shipping.


This version has a 62 mm diameter front element (other versions I have run across have had 58 or 55 mm front elements). This is a very solidly-built lens with a metal body and machined gripping surfaces on both the focus and aperture rings. Overall, this lens is in excellent condition. There are a couple of specks of dust inside, but otherwise the glass is perfect and the body of the lens is largely free of any major signs of wear. The manual/auto switch works as it should and the aperture is quick to respond. I have no idea which company actually manufactured this lens and opinions seem to vary on that particular detail.

This lens will ship with front and rear caps.

How does this lens perform? If you’re looking for a vintage 28 mm lens with corner-to-corner sharpness…this definitely isn’t it! However, this lens can be a lot of fun for generating a lo-fi or retro look with decent central sharpness from f/4 down. I have particularly liked using it in conjunction with the “toy camera” filter on the K-x.

For a sampling of images made with this lens mounted on a Pentax K-30 or K-x, please take a look at these links:

I have AD version, with K-mount, and I can confirm everything said about the lens - very well built, with specific, old-school wide-angle lens look. Not bad, but definitely not modern.

Hello All,

I have just reduced the price of this lens to 25 Euro (shipping varies - please see the ad for details).

The combined shipping offer still stands for anyone who would like to buy this lens and the Tamron 18-200 I have for sale.

Questions are always welcome.

Have a great weekend!

Jared

Hello All,

I added some more sample pics (made in better light) to the "samples" gallery. There is now a sequence from f/2.8 to f/22 included as well as a few other images made at f/4, f/5.6, f/8, and f/11 all with the lens mounted on my NEX6.

Jared
