F 50/1.7 (great price, great glass, rough body)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
F 50/1.7 (great price, great glass, rough body)

Asking Price
$135.00 USD

Item Location
Indianapolis (United States)

Item Description
This legendary lens has works properly and has excellent condition glass (no fungus or haze, very minor dust), but it's missing its focusing trim ring. Consequently, I'm selling at an outstanding price and rating this according to the PF Marketplace key as damaged. You can still manually focus the lens by gripping the ring that the focusing trim ring used to be attached to (I actually do this occasionally to fine tune focus when shooting close up and wide open). It operates very well, however, and I've used it extensively for some outstanding portraits. AF is quick and spot on; images are sharp, just as you'd expect from the legendary F 50/1.7. I'm not the original owner, and I bought it with a stuck aperture that Eric H. solved when he CLA'd it. Now the aperture blades are clean and snappy (the marks you see in the picture are cleaning marks and have no effect on the lens). There is a soft rattle when you gently shake the lens, but Eric confirmed that the lens works properly and I've used it for a long time with amazing results and no problems.

You won't find a better deal: for this bargain price, you get some of the best and sharpest AF glass Pentax ever produced that has been CLAd and closely inspected. I've invested more in the lens than I'm selling it for here; I'm selling this now only because I've selling my Pentax AF and digital kits (but keeping part of my manual focus film kit). Comes with front and rear caps.
