Item Description
Pentax-A SMC 15mm Rectilinear Ultra-Wide - EXCELLENT with original caps and hard 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.

Pentax-A SMC 15mm Rectilinear Ultra-Wide - EXCELLENT with original caps and hard case






DESCRIPTION
Best Quote: "when faced with that incredibly wide landscape, whole-sky phenomena, tight interior or a scene needing extreme perspective, no other lens will do."

It looks like a fisheye, but this is an ultra-wide rectilinear (the widest full frame rectilinear Pentax ever made). Some people call it the finest lens the Pentax ever engineered. It weighs about 600 grams, yet it is easy to carry because it is not very long. Though there is no filter thread on the outside, a UV, Skylight, Orange, and Yellow filter is built in for convenience. The lens itself is completely rectilinear and photos are sharp. The Pentax-A version of this lens fixes the limitations of the K-series lens by adding support for matrix metering, shutter-priority and program operation.

This lens is not offered very often. Once you put it on your camera, you'll understand WHY.

PRICE: $799, plus shipping. (Actual shipping price will be calculated).
Note: Compare prices anywhere to see how fairly this item is priced. If you find a nicer one for less, buy it.

PS... you are going to be kicking yourself for passing on this one, if the rumored-to-be-released-in-2012 Pentax full frame body arrives.
