Pentax-F 50 1.7 Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax-F 50 1.7

Asking Price
$160 USD

Item Location
Nebraska (United States)

Item Description
Pentax-F 50 1.7 - Very sharp optics (reason I am actually selling it). I bought this a few months back to replace my Sigma 50 1.4 (which was too sharp also). I had originally had a FA 50 1.4 and liked it, tried everything but the DA 55 1.4 (which will be my next fast 50) and really enjoyed all of them.
I do portrait photography, and quite frankly the 1.7 version is significantly sharper up til 2.5 or so. I like the softness of the FA 50 1.4.

So this is up for sale. The optics are sharp wide open, but they have a little pin prick in the coating on the front element. Doesn't affect pictures at all. The body is really clean and so is the glass with one exception.
The filter ring was broken on this and replaced with an empty Kenko filter ring to fix it. It actually is a lot nicer this way, but isn't as pretty. The picture shows it without the Hoya UV filter (but that is included). So if you are a collector of the F series, look else where. If you want a super sharp, super fast focusing copy of a great 50 - this is the ticket.

Comes with front and rear caps and Hoya HMC UV (C) filter.

$160 Shipped in the US.
International PM for price.

I accept paypal. Thanks!

I have one like that, with the filter ring broken and replaced with something else. I was able to buy a cap for it. It is sharp, sharper than the f1.4.
