SMC 50mm 1:1.4 Excellent condition
K series lens, not M series as originally thought

Asking Price
$90 Australian

Item Location
Sydney (Australia)

Item Description
This lens is in excellent condition and produces nothing other than spot free, pure and beautiful images.

I need not say much more, as this lens has a fantastic reputation of being sharp, even at f1.4 - of course not much is in focus at f1.4 but the stuff that is is SHARP - I also find the colours of this lens vibrant beyond anything I've used except the 21mm LTD (which is the only LTD I've used).

The lens is K 50/1.4

Hi Quazimoto,

the lens that you have listed is a K series lens, called as "SMC Pentax 50/1.4" or simply as K 50/1.4. The K series lenses are one generation older than the M series lenses. The K series lenses are considered to be better built than the M seires lenses. The optical formula of the K 50/1.4 may be same as that of M 50/1.4 except for the difference in the coating. You may be aware of these things, thought of clearing confusions if any.

Yes I was wondering about this because I saw a picture of an M f1.4 and it had "M" on it so I thought maybe mine was a K, but the reason I thought it was an M is that it was sold to me as that from a dealer.

Thanks, I've adjusted the original post.
