Pentax-F 135/2.8 (Price reduced)

Re-arranging my lens line-up a bit, and letting both of these great lenses go for the time being.

Pentax-M 50/1.7 - $45 + Paypal fees [SOLD]
Probably one of the best values in the Pentax arsenal. Smooth and easy to manually focus. Great IQ in a compact, affordable package. Great for portraits, very nice bokeh. Optically the same as the A, F, FA versions, but for less $. Optically hard to find a flaw, maybe a couple specks of internal dust. Cosmetically very good, just has a little wear around the distance markings on the focus ring (can be seen in one of linked photos), but doesn't effect focusing whatsoever.

Pentax-F 135/2.8 - $440 (includes Paypal fees and shipping)
Fantastic IQ, incredibly fast and accurate AF, rendering akin to FA limiteds. Close minimum focus distance means it can be used as a pseudo-macro lens. Great portrait lens, equally strong for landscape details, flowers. I will be buying a copy of this lens back in the future, hands down. This copy is in excellent optical and cosmetic condition. Light external wear/bossing in a couple places, nothing that effects function whatsoever. Optically has light internal dust, one piece on one of the inner elements that is fairly readily visible (though still too small to show in photos). Also has a barely perceptible small mark on the front element (so small I couldn't even find it when examining the lens this evening, but I know I've seen it before in the right light). None of these things effect IQ one bit.

Bump. The F 135/2.8 is a great lens for candid portraits.

Just so you know, we don't allow all caps prefixes such as **FURTHER REDUCED** in thread titles. If you have a price drop, you can indicate this in parentheses after the main title. Be sure to update the price in the post and title also. Good luck with your sale!
