Item Description
Scarce & Highly Collectible: Pentax SMC K 28mm f3.5 SHIFT lens - EXCELLENT with original caps and case

This item is one of many to be offered as part of a:


It is with a heavy heart that I find new homes for my beloved Pentax equipment. Health issues dictate that, realistically, most of this equipment will not be used by me again. I am keeping a small selection of items, but the vast majority of my collection will be sold and Pentax Forum members will have the first opportunity to purchase it, at fair prices. I take very good care of my equipment. In fact some of it must be considered New Old Stock as I received some of it new, in liew of payment, in exchange for helping a metro camera store move locations many years ago.

Worldwide shipping is available to Pentax Forum members with good feedback ratings.

7 day return policy on all items and 10 day return policy for overseas buyers (see full return policy terms, below). I do not profit from shipping/handling. Your shipping will be the actual USPS rates to your address. If you would like a shipping quote, please PM me, but due to the amount of equipment to be listed I would ask that you do so only if you are serious.

Scarce & Highly Collectible: Pentax SMC K 28mm f3.5 SHIFT lens - EXCELLENT with original caps and case
















DESCRIPTION
Looking for new photographic challenges? The PENTAX SMC K 28mm f3.5 SHIFT lens gives you perspective control. Treated with their acclaimed SMC coatings for maximum light transmission, sharp definition, and high contrast while minimizing flare and ghost imaging. (see links, below).

It offers 11mm shift in all directions, apertures from f3.5 to f32 and built in Skylight, Yellow and Orange filters.
Perfect Glass, slight wear front edge of lens shade & on aperture ring, blades snappy, no oil, original Pentax Caps and hard case. This lens would be conservatively rated Very Good, with only a little cosmetic evidence of prior use, as described and shown.

This lens is one Very Good reason to keep a film body around. Wonderful for perspective control in Real Estate photos, architectural, and cathedral interiors (just a FEW examples). Scan your film to digital and have the best of both worlds: Perspective control and digital post-processing.

QuoteQuote:
As someone who owns a non SMC shift, I can say that for panoramics a lens like this is simply amazing.

You take 2 or 3 shots (2 if you are lazy, 3 for perfection but both generally yield similarly perfect results) and you have 100% perfect overlap and perspective.

This isn't for making 180 panos, but if you want 30-40MP panos with a printable perspective this lens should be on your list!

Beyond that, you can use a lens like this for all sorts of trickery, including simply shifting over foreground obstacles without losing pixels or distorting your perspective relative to the horizon.
INTERESTING: According to this page: SMC Pentax Shift 1:3.5 28mm | Flickr - Photo Sharing! this lens will work with Canon 5D with an inexpensive adapter.

PRICE: $679, plus shipping.
Note: Compare prices anywhere to see how fairly this item is priced. If you find a nicer one for less, buy it.
