Item Description



The SMC K 200mm 2.5 lens: Very nice copy.

Optically very clean and clear, no obvious dust or haze or scratch or anything on the glass and coating, well maybe a little, used lens >3o years old anyway. Mechanically flawless also, no loose or wobbly part. Only thing I need to mention is a slight dent on the built-in hood. Hood still slides in-and-out with no problem, but there is a paint loss on the inner side after years of usage.

All in all, it is in a very good condition that is hard to find one now. I will keep the Kenko pro1D 77mm filter, but will put a 77mm filter to protect (as I always do). [COLOR="rgb(139, 0, 0)"]$445 net for me[/COLOR].

SMC (K) 35mm 3.5 lens, with a metal hood fits the style very well, and a Hoya 52mm PL filter. It is said the sharpest lens from pentax. Although I can not confirm that, it is definitely an outstanding lens, sharp, great color and contrast, well-controlled glare and distortion. Very nice copy here too. Optically very clean and clear, maybe very few very small dust, no haze or scratch or fungus on the glass and coating. Mechanically flawless also, no loose or wobbly part. All in all, it is in a very good condition that is hard to find one now. [COLOR="rgb(139, 0, 0)"]$145 net for me. -sold

Maybe a sign that I should keep it for the coming FF camera?

If I didn't already have one I'd be all over this Grahame.

An awesome lens.

Thanks Tom.
It is a great lens and i know i will regret if let it go. But focusing on APC DSLR is not as easy as on film cameras, and i am still not used to handhold K-01 with long lens mounted. I got a Sigma 70-200/2.8 and didn't use this lens enough in past years. Maybe I should keep it for the coming FF camera which should have better viewfinder. I wish pentax can release interchangeable matching focus screens for FF camera.

I swapped out the factory screen with a split prism KatzEye on my K10. It solved focusing issues with all my manual focus lenses and I have a lot of them. I'll be getting one soon for my K5 as well.

Yes, that was my solution also. But the viewfinder is still not as good as film cameras, which I miss a lot. Sold the K10 (bought one back soon, silly). Maybe just because my vision is not as good, shouldn't blame camera :-).
200mm is covered by sigma af 70-200/2.8, now I am planning to mount it on the tiny Q. Just ordered one from new egg.com yesterday. 1120mm/2.5!!! Never thought about it before! Of course, on tripod, then focusing on the 3'' lcd screen is not bad idea at all.
