SOLD -- Hard-to-find Pentax-A 16mm f2.8 fisheye Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale

Hard-to-find Pentax-A 16mm f2.8 fisheye

Asking Price
$415 OBO

Item Location
New Jersey (United States)

Item Description

Hello everyone! I am selling a beautiful, hard-to-find Pentax -A 16mm f2.8 fisheye lens from my personal equipment list. The sale is intended for US. For members outside US, please contact me first.

It is in MINT condition except one thing I want to point out. Since the beginning I owned this lens years ago, I noticed that there are some tiny spots observed at an angle beneath the rear element (as shown on the magnified close-up image). I am really not sure what they are. They don't look like fungus as they have a pattern and they never affected image quality. I welcome expert opinion from anyone who is familiar with this kind of lens to unlock the mystery.

I am asking $415 and priced it with the imperfection in mind. Any reasonable offer is welcome. It's being offered with the original lens case and both front and rear caps, all in excellent condition. The price includes USPS Priority Mail with Confirmation in US. Payment through PayPal GIFTS or regular (please add 3%).

What a beauty.
Ok, so what are the little "marks" on the lens, that have been mentioned by this very genuine seller.
Cheers, Pickles.
