Pentax F50/1.7 with issues (please read) - $59 Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax F50/1.7 with issues (please read) - $59

Asking Price
$59 USD

Item Location
Maryland (United States)

Item Description
For sale is a bargain priced Pentax F50/1.7 with some issues.

The lens is in excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition. However, there are two specifically two issues I need to point out. There is oil on the aperture which prevents it from closing quickly. So as it is, shooting wide open at f/1.7 presents no issues, but if you try to stop down your image will be overexposed due to the aperture not being able to close down quickly enough. Second, on the end of the front element, there is a small spot near the edge which I assume is fungus (upper left corner of picture #5). It doesn't effect IQ as it's all the way on the outer edge and not very large, but obviously it's relevant to point out. Both issues could likely be resolved with a CLA, but right now I just don't have the time or desire as we are moving in 4 weeks.

So, for anyone who either wants a bargain F50/1.7 for shooting wide open, or a mini-project to clean up, this might be the lens for you

I am asking $59 for the lens, plus $7 for USPS Priority to anywhere in the US. For shipping outside the US, please PM me for a quote (I'd estimate about $12-14 for first class shipping to just about anywhere, perhaps about half that for first class shipping to Canada).
