[SOLD] SMC M 20/4 20mm f4 - Tiny Rare WA Lens (Worldwide)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
SMC Pentax-M 20/4 20mm f4 Lens - manual focus wide-angle prime

Asking Price
USD $325 [Final Price Drop, 24 Hours Only!]

This price is a bargain based on lens rarity and condition (just check used prices on KEH.com).
I've gotten an offer locally; if nobody tops it with $325 by the end of Friday, this lens will be sold. Another copy might not come around for sale for quite some time.

Item Location
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Item Description

My copy of this rare wide-angle M series lens is in fantastic condition. Can't see scratches, dust, or fungus anywhere. The glass is clean and clear. The exterior of the lens is likewise super clean and nice - no worn paint, nicks, or dings anywhere on the aperture ring or focusing ring (unusual for these old M series lenses). As far as I can tell, the lens is like new. The lens serial # is 6847855.

Comes with original front cap (lettering somewhat worn) and generic back cap. The price also includes a Japanese-made Vinson coated UV filter (49mm thread), which has always been on the lens to keep the glass safe and protect it from UV rays.

The lens was purchased locally here in Vancouver. It's pretty much been sitting on my shelf. I didn't find myself using it that much, certainly not enough to justify hoarding it. I'd like to find it a better home, with a more active shooter.

It's a great full-frame wide-angle solution and is also very compact, about the same size as a DA 21mm.

Just read the reviews HERE to see the caliber of this lens. Some image samples are also on view in the Pentax Gallery.

With this lens mounted, I ran a really old and badly stored roll of film through my Pentax ME. I liked THE RESULTS (low-res cheap minilab scans)

Final price drop to USD $325, this listing will only be up for another 24 hours - at which point the lens will be sold locally.
