Item Description
Pentax M 100 2.8 - I listed this lens in "good condition" because it is in excellent condition on the outside (very clean glass and exterior), but it has a tiny mold dot in it and has some noticeable dust in it (picture 3 shows this and I boosted the contrast to emphasize every little one). The little spot has not grown since I have owned it. I have owned it for about 6 months and it has taken wonderful pictures every single time. It is a rare lens (it and the 85 f/2) for the M series, and I probably will regret letting it go (if someone buys it).

The lens also includes the original hood (the 85-100 hood) but it is missing one of the "latches" on it. It still latches fine with one, but doesn't hold on as strong. It will also include a 135-200 Takumar 49mm screw on hood (for a longer hood for DSLR use). It also has the Pentax 100 A 2.8 case for it and original front and rear caps.
I am asking $140 for it. Some may think that is high, and maybe it is, but this thing renders like a dream, focuses like a dream, and its colors are beautiful. It truly is a marvel wide open (I will post some pictures to prove it). I won't go lower than the asking price, because I still use it.

The last two pictures were taken this week. None of the portraits have any post processing, so it demonstrates that it doesn't have any contrast issues (from the mold or dust) on the K-X (wedding flower photos) or on the K-5 (my daughter). The last one in the snow was at Iso 100 2.8 1/1600 and it is very saturated with color. This lens absolutely absorbs colors like no other lens I have used.

$140 Shipped in the US with USPS priority. Outside of the US PM me for shipping price (no returns internationally).

Price drop to $140 shipped in the US. It truly is a gem, I'm just becoming more fond of the Rokinon 85 1.4. The Pentax 100 2.8 beats it in colors and sharpness though. Get it while it is still here!

I can't believe this lens still here. A tiny lens that delivers much more. My favorite 'modelling' lens, sharp, contrast, great 'Pentax' tone. Just imagine the M 50/1.7 with double the FL!
