Item Description
This is an excellent copy of the rare Pentax-FA 50mm 1.7 lens. This lens is in excellent cosmetic condition with what appears to be the original caps, the original box and manual.

This lens comes with a Tiffen Haze-1 filter and an Adorama collapsible rubber hood.

I really like this lens and originally kept this lens over my Pentax-F 50mm 1.4 because it is significantly sharper and not too much slower than the 1.4. However, I just don't find myself using it that much at this point in time. I recently got the Tamron 17-50 2.8, which though it is slower, it is even sharper that the 50mm prime, plus I can use the zoom range, so the Tamron hasn't left my camera.

Certainly the speed and bokeh is significantly better on the 1.7, which makes me hesitant to sell it, but I figured if someone really was interested I would let it go for a little more than what it's monetary value currently is. At any rate, the owner of this lens will not be disappointed in any way. A true gem that will be difficult to replace.

Feel free to contact me with any questions.
