Item Description
I have for sale a very rare and highly praised Petri 28mm 2.0 MC PK lens. On this forum it scores 10/10! petri 28mm f:2 mc Lens Reviews - Miscellaneous Lenses - Pentax Lens Review Database
This copy is in a very good shape - there are no marks on the front and rear glass and coating, no haze or fungus inside, the barrel has some usual wear, blades are dry, and aperture ring works smoothly. The focus ring is somewhat uneven, but there is nothing to worry about here. There is quite an amount of dust inside. Please be aware that this lens requires some effort in order to work properly. The issue has been described by the reviewees here:
"As stated in an earlier review, the screw head nearest the locking slot, had to be covered with aluminum tape in order to allow the green button to work properly on my Kx."
"Initially I had difficulties to get the aperture lever to work on K-5. I could not understand what caused the aperture not close when mirror goes up. It works perfect on K10D. When you look at the mount there is a screw close to the lock slot. It locates right under the contacts of the camera and one of contacts will "fall" right in the screw hole. Thus making no connection. When I placed a piece of aluminum tape over the screw hole it works as it should."
Some tiime ago I've tried once to follow these instructions, but without a success. Now I have few other 28-35mm lenses, so I decided that I don't need this one anymore.
