PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
PENTAX K 15mm F3.5 WIDE ANGEL LENS

Asking Price
$525.00 USD Dropped to $475.00

Item Location
Denver (United States)

Item Description

FOR SALE: One“K” 15mm F3.5 wide-angle Pentax lens.

The good: thelens is in 9+ condition or better. Allexternal glass and coatings are free from any marks, scuffs, scratches, etc.Focus is smooth and the blades are snappy and oil free. Included with the lensriginal lens caps, box, packaging and warranty card.

The bad: Ibought this lens knowing that the orange filter in the filter turret was dislodged. Because of this, there are some scratches onone of the internal elements, not sure if it’s inboard or outboard, of thefilter turret. I took the lens to Pentaxin Denver for repairs, and they shipped it to Pentax Japan, where the repairswere done. The lens is now 100%functional and working. I will try toget pictures of these scratches on the internal element, but also know that bystopping down to F8 or smaller, the scratches are no longer visible or in thepath of light.

For thisreason, my asking price is fairly modest compared to the price without thisissue.

The scratchesare impossible to photograph, at least for me.
Shipping outside the USA will go as Registered Mail
I want to be able to shipworldwide but I am very worried about some locations.

So I reserve the right torefuse offers to buy my photo equipment from places I deem sketchy.

Good e-mail communicationand a shipping address I can Google earth will help me with that decision.

I’m going to be putting alot more stuff up for sale in the next few weeks. I’m not out to screw anyoneand I expect the same.

Everything that I will belisting has been in my possession for a minimum of 10 years or more.

Just want to start herebefore I go to eBay.

Thanks for looking!

Greg

I just added some images take with the 15mm. They are scanned 4x6's, so there is some quality loss but not much. They are from my trip to The Maze in Canyonlands NP.
The reason I added the 35 to 70 zoom is because if I don't sell the 15mm I'll keep it and get a K1000 to use it with.

I am impressed on how this lens flattens the canyon. The sight is impressive. I may send a PM if I can later.
