Spiratone 20mm f/2.8 in K-mount

I am trying to buy back my past lens in 20mm focal length. I can't afford the 21mm limited and hence I try to buy a copy of Spiratone 20mm f/2.8 which I used before.

Oh Jeff, the lens comes and it is in a pristine condition that my past copy is shame to compare. Thank you so much for your help. This 20mm is going to hold me over from the 21mm limited. Of course, I heart the pancake but I have a low budget to share between digital and film gear, I opt for the inexpensive choices until I can justify the 21 limited.

The lens is pretty small for it spec. Not pancake small, but small like a 28mm wide and the best part is that I can use it in my film gear with Ricoh xr-p and my new toy in mail with Sony NEX 5N. And in the Sony E mount adapter, I don't need the hassle with green button metering required in crippled K-mount in KAF2.

I will close out this thread after submitting feedback to you.
