Asking Price

Item Description
For sale is a now-somewhat-rare Pentax SMC FA 50mm f/2.8 Macro lens. This lens has often been reputed as the sharpest Pentax ever made, and my results with it have supported this conclusion. It has a focus clamp, which is handy when shooting macros, and it works wonderfully as a portrait lens as well.

The lens is optically perfect, and requires no focus adjustment on my K-7. The glass is clean on both ends, and there is no fungus inside. The body is similarly clean, albeit with a couple of small scuff marks. Mechanical operation is as perfect as expected.

Included: Lens, front and rear caps (original)

Shipping: Free in USA. WW ask, but I prefer to sell in USA for now.

Pictures: Coming soon!

just a note, it's not a focus limiter but a focus clamp. It serves as an additional source of friction when focusing manually, making the process smoother. Very nice but not the same as a limiter.

I positively love this lens. It's an amazing tool for macro, portraits, or anything requiring a sharp, uniform, distorsion-free image.
