[SOLD] Kiron 24mm f2 - ever want a fast 35mm equivalent (Worldwide) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Kiron 24mm f2 - ever want a fast 35mm equivalent

Asking Price

Item Location
Southern Tablelands, NSW, Australia

Item Description
24mm lenses don't come any quicker than the PK mount anyway.

This example is in excellent cosmetic condition - both inside and out. Minimal wear on the barrel and the glass is clean and clear. The reason I have rated the lens as "Good" is that the aperture blades are only now beginning to smear the tiniest bit of oil - common to the 24 & 28 Kirons I'm afraid. There is no muck or build-up on the blades and the aperture ring remains snappy. There is also no oil on the glass. I have had it checked and was told that the blades can easily be cleaned, but that the leak is minimal and since consistently and quickly returning to the centre will not cause any issue for some time. Of course I cannot guarantee this but can merely convey the message. A photo of the blades is included in the stream.

Please see photo-stream of and from the lens here.

Anyway, a great example which is merely demonstrating its common issue - which I fear happens to all over time. Otherwise, a beautiful lens which renders sharp anywhere above f4 (again please see sharpness at f4 in the stream) and even opened up offers some unique and pleasant portraits.

A must for anyone who wants a fast 35mm (eq. FoV).

As this is the last of my 55mm lenses, I'll bundle in my remaining Polarizer and Haze (UV) filters. Also included is an after-market lens hood - collapsible leatherette.

Please don't hesitate to PM me if you have any further queries or would like to see any more examples of, or by, this unique lens.
