[SOLD] Pentax-A 645 2.8/75mm 99

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax-A 645 2.8/75mm SOLD

Asking Price
$155, 99

Item Location
near Cambridge (England)

Item Description
Pentax-A 645 2.8/75mm



This is the highly praised standard lens for the Pentax medium format 645 system, manual focus, with A-setting. It is optically identical to the autofocus lens, which I have as well. Since I only use one of these two lenses, and need to raise cash because I bought a medium format rangefinder, this lens has to go. It is a very reliable workhorse, solid built quality, very sharp. See the reviews at pentaxforums.

The lens is in great condition: no scratches, fungus or distorting dust. Aperture is smooth. As all Pentax 645 lenses (except the LS ones), it has 8 aperture blades.

Comes with Pentax front and rear lens caps.

I also have a 4/45-125mm lens hood, which has the same filter thread; smallish, but effective. Will add that.

Exchange for the 45mm lens (645) will also be considered.

Are you interested in your old 55mm? I've since picked up a 45mm and am using that!

Much to my surprise, 55mm did not appeal to me. Surprise because on 135 film my ‘standard’ lens was a 35mm, but on the 645 I prefer the VoF of the 75mm (or 45mm).
But if you like to exchange the 45mm.... I have the zoom, but the 45mm weighs less

Oh I was unclear, I did not mean to say I want to exchange the zoom for the fixed lens, the only thing I have for sale or trade is the A 75mm lens—and only because I have the FA version as well.

You don't have to....
BTW, I do not know how to edit the $ listed in the list as it no longer corresponds to the lowered price.

That is great support, does make life easier. Meanwhile, lowered the asking price a bit. Any lower and I might as well keep it.
