Pentax M 85mm f2 + Pentax Skylight UV filter - Great condition Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax M 85mm f2 + Pentax Skylight UV filter - Great condition

Asking Price
235 AUD

Item Location
Newcastle, NSW (Australia)

Item Description
Selling the amazing 85mm f2 - amazing because it is so small considering its focal length and aperture, and also amazing because it's wonderfully sharp and colourful, even by today's standards - it's a typical Pentax M series! (See the uncropped photo of the boy, and then the 100% crop - taken with a K5, pretty sure it was f2 because the background is pretty much gone).
With it comes a classic Pentax 'Skylight' UV filter, as well as it's original front cap which is in good condition. Very little fading of the silver lettering.

Overall I'd described the condition as on the excellent side of good. That is to say, I can't really see anything wrong with it but you know, it's 30 years old or so, so it does have SOME wear. Tiny little spots of the black paint here and there are missing, but overall it's still shiny black and looking good. Glass is perfect, aperture blades snappy.

I bought this to use on my K-01 (to have the longer length without the bulk of a long lens) and it balances beautifully, but I now am selling my K-01 too, so no need for this lens, lovely as it is.

Pickup from Newcastle or Sydney is available (I am in Sydney every few weekends) - or postage to Australia or worldwide, free postage in Australia.
Bank deposit is accepted as is Paypal. Paypal will be an extra $3.50.

Feel free to ask me anything else about the sale. Enjoy!
