Item Description
For Sale: SMC Pentax FA 50mm f2.8 Macro Lens

Purportedly the sharpest 50mm lens Pentax ever made. This lens boasts a robust metal body and is very solidly built. The front element is recessed making a separate hood less vital. It also has a focus clamp that when tightened, makes the focus ring have a more substantial feel so that manual focusing is easier. This is an FA lens which is better than an F lens because it provides MTF information in Program mode (if your camera supports that)

This lens is in excellent shape. Just one slight scuff on the barrel (see picture). All lettering and paint is intact. Glass is perfect. No mold, yellowing, scratches or flaws of any kind. Minimal dust inside. Focus ring is smooth. Focus clamp works perfectly. Aperature ring clicks solidly. No oil on the blades and blades are snappy. All in all, an excellent example of this lens. Includes genuine pentax front and rear caps.
