Auto Chinon 35/2.8 (M42 mount), A50/1.7, & A50/2

I'm simplifying my manual focus collection and offering these fine lenses for sale. Free Shipping! (via USPS)

Auto Chinon 35/2.8 M42 mount -- $25 SOLD. This is a well-built, good quality screwmount lens. Excellent condition on the PF Marketplace key. Glass is clear with no fungus or haze, just slight dust as expected in a lens of this vintage. Aperture is clear and snappy. The focus ring is well-damped, aperture ring smooth--much like a well-cared for Takumar. Has Auto/Manual switch. I really like the look and feel of this lens, but I haven't used it much because I have other 35s in K-mount that I prefer because of their ease of mounting. It comes with the original front cap and a generic rear cap.

A 50/2 -- $30. SOLD Like new to excellent condition according to the PF Marketplace key. Glass is clear with no fungus or haze, just some dust as expected in a lens of this vintage (but no effect whatsoever). Aperture is clear and snappy. Like all Pentax A lenses, the aperture ring isn't smooth turning but it operates properly (a complete non-issue with in-body aperture control). Includes original caps (front is push-on). The A 50/2 is an under-appreciated lens that is just as sharp as any of the 50s when stopped-down to f/2.8 or lower--especially great focal length for portraits on an APS-C digital body. This lens is a great first manual focus lens for any photographer on a budget.

A 50/1.7 -- $95 SOLD. Like new to excellent condition according to the PF Marketplace condition key. Glass is clear with no fungus or haze, just very slight dust as expected in a lens of this vintage. Aperture is clear and snappy. Like all Pentax A lenses, the aperture ring isn't smooth turning but it operates properly (a complete non-issue with in-body aperture control). Includes original caps (front is clip-on). This is a very sharp lens and has properly earned its legendary reputation. I use it for portraits and as a walk-around lens on occasion.
