Pentax LX (2012 CLA), M 50mm f1.7 Prices Reduced

Hi PentaxForums!

Today, I'll be listing my beloved LX, along with a few 50mm lenses I've acquired. First, lets start with the LX. This camera was acquired by me about a year ago. It had the sticky mirror syndrome, and was promptly sent off to Eric Hendrickson for CLA and repair. When it came back, it performed beautifully and still does. I have shot many rolls of film with the camera since it had its CLA last summer and have been blown away by it's accuracy and quality. I am selling due to recently getting an MZ-S, and want to get the FA Limiteds for it. My astigmatism has gotten worse and it is more difficult to accurately focus manually, even with an awesome viewfinder like the LX has.

The LX is in overall good cosmetic condition, with a few chips of paint and superficial scuffs along the body. Please see the photos. I see no evidence that this camera has ever been abused. The LX includes the standard FA-1 finder (few superficial scratches on the top, but the glass is clear of any noticeable dust), Grip B, strap lugs and (I believe) original strap, Pentax brand body cap, and the Winder LX. The winder functions perfectly, but is loud! The two covers on the bottom of the LX that cover the mating points of the winder are still intact.

The LX along with the grip, winder, strap and lugs, and body cap is $500 $475 $400. I have asked Mr. Hendrickson to provide me a duplicate copy of the work order for the CLA and repair, and once I have one I will enclose it with the camera for the new owner's records.

Next up, we have the FA 50mm f/1.4. This lens has performed beautifully with my MZ-S and LX. There are a few very superficial scratches on the barrel, but the glass is scratch free and there are maybe 4 specs of dust inside the lens. The aperture ring works perfectly, and the aperture closes and opens as expected. Includes a Pentax 49mm front cap and aftermarket rear cap. $250 $230 SOLD!

Third, we have the M-series 50mm f/1.7. This lens was sent to Eric last fall to correct an optical misalignment. At some point in it's past, it was dropped (see photo of the scuff marks on the filter ring), and this was not disclosed to me prior to my purchasing it. The fall caused the main lens barrel to become misaligned. Eric repaired the lens and performed a CLA and it is among the sharpest lenses I've ever used. Really a stunner. Totally free of scratches to the glass, no dust inside, and 100% fully functional. There are a few areas of lost paint on the body, as well as the (now superficial) scuff marks on the filter ring. Filters are able to be installed and removed with no problems; it is not warped. Includes aftermarket front and rear caps. $75 $60

Finally, an M-series 50mm f/2. This lens came with another body I bought at some point in the past, and was not used. It is sold as-is. There is what appears to be fungus or condensation inside the lens barrel. Probably not enough to cause problems to images, but I cannot in good conscience make that claim without using the lens. No caps included. Great for someone who wants practice on disassembling lenses before tackling a Takumar or 50 f1.2, or if you just need a good cheap 50. $10SOLD!

Please note: All prices include shipping to CONUS addresses via USPS Priority or First Class mail (depending upon weight). If you would like insurance, please let me know and I will determine a price for it. If you are overseas, you are welcome to purchase my equipment. I will deduct $10 from each sale price and add the cost of USPS Priority International. I accept PayPal payments, and those local to Raleigh are more than welcome to set up a meeting as well.

PentaxForums has a limit of 10 photos per post, so I have created an album of the other 7 images here: imgur: the simple image sharer

Please feel free to PM me with any questions on each of these items. I am also more than happy to entertain serious offers as well. If you are willing to trade an FA Limited for one or more of my items (even as a partial trade), I too would love to entertain the offer.

Thank you for taking a look at my items!

Haha thanks for the bump, even though it didn't work! :-)

The LX, FA 50 1.4 and M 50 1.7 are still available. The LX is negotiable; please feel free to make a reasonable offer. I do not have much room to budge further on the 50s.

Final bump. If not sold by 5/1, I will keep the LX and 50 1.7 and withdraw sale. How does $400 for the LX and accessories with the 50 1.7 sound?
