[SOLD] Three great lenses! M150 f3.5 (rare!), F50 f1.7, FA28 f2.8

I have three amazing lenses for sale. I will ship worldwide, with the service the buyer requests (cheapest is usually Canada Post). I prefer payment via paypal, but other options can be discussed.

I descibe each lens as accurately as possible. Feel free to ask questions. Offers should be made via PM.

I am selling the lenses, but I can always be interested in a trade. If you have something to offer, I will consider your proposal.

SMC-M 150mm f3.5

This lens is amazingly small, and optically amazing. It is a very rare lens. the field of view closely ressembles that of a 135mm. The lens is very sharp wide open, and still improves by f4 and f5,6. I'm selling it because I laid my hands on a K135 f2,5 (heavier, larger, similar IQ, but faster).

this copy could be described as "like new" except that there is a tiny blemish on a part of the focus scale. I have taken a picture of it (below). The actual scratch is less dramatic than what the picture suggests (I used about 1:2 macro enlargment) but I want to be honest.

The aperture ring, focus ring, and built-in hood are perfect and smooth. Apart from the scratch it really is perfect. It comes with both caps.

The price is 165$ CND.









SMC-F 50mm f1.7

Another lens needing no presentation. I have two copies of this lens so one must go.

The lens is like new, both optically and cosmetically. aperture and focus rings are flawless, except that the focus ring has a slight friction in the middle of its range. Again, I way this in the interest of full disclosure, because I can assure you that it does not affect AF nor MF in any way (I compared both of my copies).

It comes with the front cap, sadly no rear cap (it will be very well packed). To mitigate this, I will ship it with a collapsing rubber hood that has a metal filter thread (the best kind).

Because it lacks the rear cap, and because of the small friction I noticed on the focus ring, I offer this lens at 200$ CND.







SMC-FA 28mm f2.8

Last but not least, another fantastic lens needing no presentation. I compared it with my DA21 Limited and found only minimal differences (I considered keeping this one but prefer the wider FOV). Focus is maybe a bit faster on the 28 than the 21, that's saying something.

Another lens like new optically and cosmetically. This lens was originally owned by the Edmonton police, and because of this there is a date engraved on the mount (pictured). I don't see why it would bother anyone but a collector (my FA50 macro comes from the same source and has the same markings).

Both rings operate flawlessly, the focus scale window is in perfect shape, really it's fantastic.

The lens comes with both front and rear caps, and a hard case meant for the M28mm f3.5. The case's leather is a little faded but it is not damaged in any way.

The price for this great lens is 225$ CND. EDIT : SOLD.

The F50 and M150 are still available. You won't find these lenses cheaper anytime soon.

Weekend bump. Seeing that other lenses like these have sold, I might relist them separately.
