Pentax-A 50mm f/1.7, reduced to $50 shipped (US lower 48) Marketplace Listing

Pentax-A 50mm f/1.7

Item Location
Philadelphia PA (United States)

Item Description
This is in great shape, the only marks being some very slight paint loss on part of the front edge of the filter ring. Not structural, barely noticeable. Nothing else worth noting on the barrel, and nothing on the glass. There is only minute dust internally. Focusing is smooth, and the lens is sharp. I am selling a bit cheap as it did have the "pentax-a stuck aperture ring adjustment ring" issue. A little part commonly comes un-glued under the aperture ring... I found the tutorial on repairing it and got it done alright. The aperture ring adjustment is not silky smooth though, I should have re-greased the aperture ring I think... Anyway it turns easily to "A" and stays there, which means it shoots in aperture priority mode, controlled by the rear control dial of the modern Pentax digital bodies. I got a screeching deal on a DA 40mm, so I don't reach for this lens anymore. $65 gets the lens to you in the lower 48 of the USA, payment by paypal, if you're from other locales I can do a shipping quote for you.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?
