SMC Pentax 17mm F4 Fish-Eye Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
SMC Pentax 17mm F4 Fish-Eye

Asking Price

Item Location
Boston, MA (United States)

Item Description
SMC Pentax 17mm F4 Fish-Eye --- $300 plus shipping and paypal fees --- SOLD

This lens is a true little gem. It gives FOV of 180 degrees diagonal on film---hence the nickname "fish-eye". On digital crop it still gives the hint of the fish-eye effect which can be fun to play with. On the ever-expected full frame this would easily top its DA equivalent as most of the older Pentax lenses would.

This lens is rarely available for sale---especially in this condition. Glass is in excellent shape with little (if any) dust inside. Focusing is silky smooth. Aperture blades are snappy. True collector's item as seen in the pictures below (although they don't do the justice well, I took them using a bad cell phone camera). Even the case is especially designed for the lens itself (lens name printed on top of the case).

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?
