Item for Sale
Rare SMC Pentax 85mm F2.2 Soft Focus

Asking Price

Item Location
Winnipeg, Canada

Item Description
Hello, I have a few items that I would like to sell. Money is getting a little tight and these items are also ones that I rarely use, so not much of a point in keeping them. Please PM me any questions you have, I'll be glad to answer them.

For sale is a Pentax SMC 85mm f/2.2 Soft Focus Lens

This is a specialty lens that you do not see for sale often. This lens has a unique pear like shape, and renders unique looking images. I bought this used last year. Mechanically it works without any issues! The lens does show some use, but that should be expected for a lens of this age, right?

It comes with CPC Phase 2 49mm Skylight (1A) filter, and genuine Pentax front and back covers.

There is however one issue with it. The lens does have a minuscule scratch on the glass. You can see it in the picture, I did my best to take a picture of it at an angle that would show it off in all its glory. The scratch does not effect the images that come out from it, and appears to only be a cosmetic flaw.

Please PM me any concerns, thank you.

These pics aren't the greatest, but they will give you an idea. The bokeh from the lens is quite interesting in my opinion.

Don't forget this is a lens that works with K mount film bodies!
