[SOLD] Pentax M28/3.5, nice glass, broken aperture :-( Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax M28/3.5, nice glass, broken aperture :-(

Asking Price
US $30

Item Location
Tampa, FL (United States)

Item Description
Pentax M28/3.5 with broken aperture lever. Glass and cosmetics are excellent. Aperture is wide open and stays there regardless of aperture ring setting. Aperture lever moves, but not as it's supposed to. Instead of sliding back and forth staying perpendicular to the mount, it freely pivots like the hand on a watch. There's also something loose in the aperture area that you can hear rattling around.

This lens usually goes for around $90, so if you're happy shooting wide open or feel up to the mechanical challenge of fixing the aperture, you can get what is arguably the sharpest 28mm Pentax ever made for 1/3 of the normal value.

Includes front and rear caps and a Tiffen 49mm Sky 1-A filter.

Yikes, thanks for the heads up. Had the same typo in the body too. That's my cue that it's time for bed!
