Pentax K 50mm f1.2 (final price drop before ebay)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax K 50mm f1.2 (relisted)

Asking Price
410 USD

Item Location
Kuusamo (Finland)

Item Description
I am selling the rather rare and elusive Pentax 50mm f1.2 "light thief". The lens is used but in excellent condition. There are no scratches, fungus or haze on the glass and only faint marks of use on the metal surfaces. Filter thread has seen use and is a bit more worn than the lens in general but this does not affect the use of filters. Everything works smoothly, aperture ring and focusing are nice. Comes with a Toshiba SL-1A filter that I've had on the lens at all times. Also has rear and front caps (not original).

I don't have much time for photography during the current stage in my life and can't justify this (and some others...there's more to come) lens just sitting on the shelf. Hopefully it will find a nice home with someone who has the time to actually use it. I'd rather sell it here to a fellow Pentaxian than put it on Ebay and possibly see someone buy it for the purpose of modifying (i.e. raping) it for use on e.g. Canon.

The asking price in euros using the current rate (23th of November 2011) is 305 euros.

*I am relisting the lens due to a buyer hitting unforeseen financial troubles*

Return Policy & Additional Details
The asking price includes insured shipping (where applicable: e.g. most countries within the EU, US etc.). If the lens is damaged during shipping, insurance will cover this. To countries where insured parcels are not an option, I will send as a registered parcel instead.

Payment through PayPal (outside the EU). Within the EU also a bank transfer is possible, although Paypal is preferred.


Please send me a private message if interested in the item!

Ron, thanks for the kind words :-)

PMs answered. Dankobanana is first in line.

Edit: oops, the current asking price in euros is more like 335, not 370.

Oh that's a pretty thing. Awhile back I was desperately looking for f1.2 lenses and none were available. Now all of a sudden it's all popping out but I'm broke from buying my air tickets for Christmas.

DAMMIT. Somebody save me from my suffering and buy this lens already.

Hi Ollie,

Yes it is still available. However, I have one buyer who is ready to buy but wants to pay in installments. He will get the lens unless I get a faster sale within the next couple days. Contact me via private messages if you want to proceed with the sale.

Best regards,
Riku
