Item Description
So I've had this Pentax-F 70-210 sitting around, and it is a GREAT lens. Super sharp, great auto-focus speed. But it has one problem. It appears as though at some point in time, some grease from the front helical migrated between the two front elements. It's confined to the edges, and honestly, I see no difference in image quality, either at the wide end or zoomed in, wide open or stopped down.
But the oil is there, so I am listing it as "damaged."

I actually did try to get the front retaining ring off so I could clean the element, but the thing simply won't budge. Maybe if you are a DIYer, and have a nicer spanner wrench than I do, you might be able to get this apart more easily!

Either way, it's a great lens, as the sample pictures below demonstrate.

Apologies about the dirty barrel of the lens - I'll make sure to clean it up nicely before sending it out! It's actually in very nice cosmetic shape underneath the dirt.
