Legendary Pentax K 30mm f/2.8 lens - Perfect Normal Focal Length

Pentax K 30mm f/2.8 lens

Asking Price
$250

Item Location
Oregon (United States)

Item Description
This is a classic, rare Pentax lens. One of the coolest ever, if I say so myself. Certainly it gets great reviews and is considered one of the best medium-wide angle Pentax lenses. Unfortunately, I haven't been using my copy as I should, so I think it's time to let somebody else have the chance to use it. It's a great working (not necessarily collecting) copy. No real flaws to speak of. The paint has a couple of tiny chips, particularly on the front edge. There is an average amount of dust inside. I shined a light through and couldn't see any traces of fungus or other damage (besides the dust). There are ~2 very light scratches in the coating of the front element, around 2mm long. I never even noticed them until I shined the light at a certain angle. I haven't noticed any negative effect from them in image quality, and they are so minor it's really hard to even take a picture that would show them.

Comes with original front cap and non-OEM rear cap.

Sample Pictures

Here are some sample pictures to show the bokeh and sharpness of this lens. Minor color and contrast corrections, but no other PP.

Price Reduced, and I will again say that the scratches are very minor - I've been using this lens for years and never even noticed them until I put a flashlight on it at a particular angle. I highly doubt there is any noticeable effect on image quality.

Happy 2012.
