Pentax-K 50mm f1.2 Lens Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax-K 50mm f1.2 Lens

Asking Price

Item Location
Pennsylvania (United States)

Item Description
Pentax-K 50mm f1.2. $375. A lovely lens I’ve had a hard time bringing myself to sell, as it produces such excellent images every time I use it. But I simply don’t use it enough to justify keeping it. It’s also a lovely, solid piece of glass and very well built. Optics are clean and clear except for the usual internal dust and what is either some light haze in the middle of the optics or a rather decent amount of finer dust (visible only when shining a flashlight). I bought it as “optically clean and clear”, so I am rather fusser with my examinations of these than most. There is also a slight ding to the filter ring. Filters do still mount, but it can be tricky. Aperature blades are dry and snappy with a little light wear in a couple of places to the blades. Cosmetically, the lens shows average wear with a few bits of paint loss, particularly by the distance scale, which has lost the enamel paint for the infinity sign and most of the 10m mark. There is also a loss of paint above the “J” and “A” in “JAPAN” on the front trim ring. Includes Pentax front and rear (the slip on one) caps.

Please see my other listings for more MF prime lenses and film cameras if you are interested.

Payment will be via Paypal or US Postal money order.
Price includes insured shipping in the USA. I will ship worldwide at $5 less than cost, but I do not lie on customs forms. International shipping without any tracking is at your own risk, but I will provide a scan of my receipt from the post office if that makes you feel better.

This lens is surpringly good wide open, with great bokeh, and then becomes razor sharp still with great bokeh. Sample Photos I took with this lens:
