SMC Pentax-M 1:1.7 50mm Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
SMC Pentax-M 1:1.7 50mm

Asking Price

Item Location
North Carolina (United States)

Item Description
I have two copies of the Pentax-M 50/1.7 so I am selling one of them. On the KEH scale this would be "BGN" condition -- optically clean and functionally fine, but with an above average amount of cosmetic wear. No major dings, just normal signs of use. Includes an OEM front cap but NO REAR CAP.

I recently got this along with a camera from eBay. I expect there is no rear cap because the lens was kept on the camera. The lens also came with a generic skylight filter attached, and from the excellent condition of the front of the lens I would guess the filter had always been mounted. (If you'd like the filter I'll add it for $2.)

Optics clean, only moderate internal dust, aperture blades dry and snappy. Aperture ring clicks nicely although with slightly less resistance than my other M lenses. Focus ring nicely damped and smooth.

US$38 includes PayPal fee and shipping by USPS Priority Mail.

For detailed images of the lens, and also some test shots (including 100% crops) taken with this copy of the lens, please see:

Thanks sergy! The M 50/1.7 is rightly renowned as one of the best performance/price values in the entire Pentax lineup. This lens has the same optical formula used in all the Pentax 50/1.7s, sharp out to the corners.
