FISHY: Zenitar 16mm & Pentax-F 17-28mm Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
FISHY: Zenitar 16mm & Pentax-F 17-28mm

Asking Price

Item Location
Maryland (United States)

Item Description
Zenitar 16mm K-Mount Fish-Eye f2.8 $140 (Shipping & Paypal included)
For sale is one Zenitar 16mm Fish-Eye Lens. I am the original owner and have used this on 35mm and a DSLR. The optics are in perfect shape with no issues (No oil, fungus, scratches, ect.) and the focus is smooth. The lens body has some surface marks with one spot where some of the clear-coat has rubbed off (to right of "Fish-Eye" text; see photo.) Comes with lens case and the four rear-mounting filters (clear one is mounted; the red, yellow, and green are in their plastic carry case.) This was one of my first lenses and I have really enjoyed it. The only reason I am selling is because I recently bought the Pentax version here on the forum.

Pentax-F 17-28mm f3.5-4.5 $260 (Shipping & Paypal included)
For sale is one Pentax-F 17-28mm Fish-Eye zoom lens. This lens is in excellent condition with no obvious marks on the lens body. The optics are perfect with no oil or fungus. Both auto focus and manual focus are possible with this lens (no quick-shift though.) So, not too many of us Film people still around but obviously this is a really fun lens on 35mm. Because this lens is not too common, I always felt that the DSLR photos I got with it were kind of unique... not something that tons of others were shooting with. As reviews will state, you still get some of the fishy curves on digital, but it is not as pronounced as it would be on 35mm and is pretty easily correct in post. Because it is not rectilinear, it has a wider view than a 16mm lens. This is honestly a hard one for me to let go of.
