Item Description
Pentax-A SMC 24mm f2.8 with original caps

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 24mm f2.8 with original caps





DESCRIPTION
Best Quote: "I would put the resolution and overall performance up against any other 24mm 2.8 on the market. I love it. As an added bonus, it focuses quite close."
&
"I don't think that you can get better than this in a Pentax mount. The color and saturation are better than any other Pentax lens I have. . . it is very resistant to flare and ghosting."

The A version of this lens was only manufactured for 5 years and so is somewhat scarce. Whatever you pay today, it will probably be worth more tomorrow (especially if the Pentax full frame rumors happen to come true). This copy has perfect finish and mechanicals. I have noted that the front element's lens cement is imperfect - on the very edge and out of the optical path - has not changed in 21 years of using the lens. As with any lens of this age, some internal dust specs are possible. Includes Pentax caps.

PRICE: $199, plus shipping.

Hello Danne,
Sorry for the late reply.
The lens is still available. First person to Paypal me the selling price plus shipping is the new owner.
Priority Mail to Sweden would be $30 (6-10 business days)
First Class to Sweden (delivery time "varies") would be $13.
Your choice.

Note: I do not hold items. The first person to pay for an item is the new owner. Any subsequent payments would be immediately and fully refunded.
Email or PM me for my paypal address. Good luck!
