[SOLD] SMC Pentax-A 50mm f2.0 (Worldwide) Marketplace Listing

SMC Pentax-A 50mm f2.0

Asking Price
$30 US

Item Location
Aurora, CO USA

Item Description

If you want to dip a toe in the cheap manual-focus prime lens world, and still have great compatibility with a DSLR, this lens is for you. Although it is almost the cheapest 50mm, it's still sharper than the kit lens and 3 stops faster. Besides manual focus, you'll have to tell the camera it's a 50mm for SR to work, but all the modes, flash, and metering work fine.

The lens has one cosmetic issue. The filter ring had some knocks and paint loss. I get distracted by these so I use a permanent marker to blacken them. You can see the slight purple tint of the marker. A filter threads on without trouble.

Otherwise, the lens is perfectly functional. It's made in Japan, which makes it an older model - later lenses were made in Taiwan. The glass is clear, with no scratches, haze, fungus or any other problem. Focus is smooth through the range. The aperture is snappy, the blades are oil-free and the A position works correctly. I happen to have a box for one of these lenses so I'll include that. Caps are included and generic.

Half size photos are below. Larger versions are here.
