Pentax-A 50mm f1.7

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
SMC-A 50mm f1.7

Asking Price
$40

Item Location
Colorado (United States)

Item Description
For sale is SMC-A 50mm f1.7 in good condition. “A” function is working properly. Glass is scratch- and fungus-free but body does show normal wear. There is very minor dust visible inside but does not affect picture. Focus ring is smooth but aperture ring does have some issues. For some reason, stopping down manually the aperture ring stops at f11. Between f1.7 – f11 is ok. You can go past f11 but it will take some “effort”! Once you skip f11 the aperture ring will move normally as it should all the way up to “A” position. I have the aperture ring set permanently on “A” and leave it there. Aperture blades are clean, oil free and fully functional however; I did notice one of the blades (the one under the “SMC”) does have some sort a “ding”. Again, it does not affect picture quality. First two photos are of the actual lens. Last picture (Goldbond) is a photo taken with the lens at f4 on my K-x. With the issues mentioned above, I am selling the lens for $40 plus shipping. Front and rear lens cap included.

I'd like to buy your lens. I haven't bought/sold anything on this forum yet, so I'm not sure of the process, but I am interested.

I sent you a PM. I believe forum members are required at least two posts to communicate via private messaging. You may need to post at least one more to respond to my PM.

I'm still interested in the lens. Made some additional posts, but it doesn't seem like the system has caught up with them yet as I still cannot PM.

If only you shipped outside the US. For 40 dollars it's a steal.

Regarding the aperture ring stuck at 11 -- it is a relatively easy fix -- I have done it myself once.
There is a description on the forum, I believe here:

Hope it will help.
