[SOLD] Pentax K 2/28mm (Zeiss Distagon design) Sale pending Marketplace Listing

Asking Price

Item Location
Near Cambridge (England)

Item Description
Pentax K 2/28mm 450

This is the famous, fast, Pentax K 28mm at f 2. It is also called the Pentax Distagon, because the design and lens elements were actually made by Zeiss, in the short period that Zeiss and Pentax collaborated on the lens mount, and a few lens designs.

This copy is in excellent condition. It is used, but the optics are good (no scratches or fungus) and the diaphragm is smooth, as is focussing (manual, of course).
I only sell because I want to buy more medium format gear, and this lens raises more money than others (and I'm going to need all the money I can find). I find that I prefer to use my medium format film cameras, although this lens has a quality about it that is hard to describe.

It has always been protected by a B&W filter. Filter, and Pentax front and rear lens caps come with it.

For more information on the Zeiss/Pentax cooperation, see the following links:
