[SOLD] SMC Pentax-M 28mm f/2.8 lens

I bought this lens from the original owner in early 09, I think. This is one of the lenses I said I'd never sell until an A28/2.8 came along for a good price is that day

It's working perfectly. Focus and aperture rings are M-perfect. Aperture blades are fast. That's really all there is to the lens mechanically besides the aperture follower for film bodies (which is also perfect).

Cosmetically. I'd rate it a 8.75/10. I see a bit of residue/paint imperfection(?) 1x3mm on the outside of the filter ring, and a 1mm long chip of paint missing on the aperture ring edge. Just a bit of paint wear on the filter ring above the NT in PENTAX. I'm being extremely picky because this lens is so clean.

Inside, the glass looks good. It has the typical Pentax M layer of dust near the rear of the lens (seriously, I've owned 1 M out of 5 which hasn't had the dust--that being the 3rd copy of the M50/1.7 I currently own) and there's what appears to be a .5mm long hair inside...or something. I can only see it from the back of the lens so I assume it's close to the middle. Naturally, the image quality is not affected.

But all that is being really nitpicky. This is a fantastic lens that has served me well the last couple years. Such a better-built lens than the A...

I have a generic front cap, generic rear cap, and beat up sleeping bag for it (top is held on by gaffer's tape). Serial 7599578.

Asking $60 + actual shipping. Contact me for a quote

Not seeking any trades at the moment since I bought the A28 and need to recoup that. International shipping is possible, though be aware it will be anywhere from $8-30 depending on location and service.
