Item Description

Up for grabs is a beautiful F 50 1.7. No need to wait for the DA 50, this one is in fantastic shape!

The lens has no issues to speak of, and was just CLA'd by Eric Hendrickson of Pentax Repairs (the most highly regarded repair guy here on Pentax Forums). Eric removed some oil droplets from an internal element and calibrated the focus. The lens has no scratches or coating imperfections that I can see, and Eric cleaned it internally so internal dust is minimal.

One thing to note is that the focus ring on this lens has slightly more resistance near infinity than at its minimum focusing range when manually focusing. I think this is pretty normal for the F series - my F 28 / 2.8 has even more resistance near infinity, and it's been working fine that way for years. If you use AF you won't even notice. It focuses easily in AF mode on my K5, but I like to be through in my descriptions, so there are no surprises.

I'll ship worldwide at my discretion based on feedback.
