Item Description
Up for sale my good old macro. This lens has been used a lot, it was given to me by a friend of mine who is much older than me, he used it with his K1000 and passed it on so I could continued to juice it. Still delivers nice quality images when matched with my K-7. The lens works, the autofocus works, aperture ring works, the clamp works, everything works. It's an old lens but it works. No evidence of fungus inside. Comes with front and rear cap.
It has some scratches in the front element: all of them very light scratches but one that is almost in the center. From my pictures (see samples below) they do not affect image quality and if they do it is hard to notice.

The lens is rated as excellent in this forum check what other say about it: LINK

It is priced to sell, a nice copy goes for around $350...

Are the scratches on the front of the lens observable in pictures taken with it?

No, scratches are not observable in the pics taken with it. I will take a couple of sample shots today and post them.

there you go: shot at f8 a bit under exposed but shows that the lens delivers... no modifications, just reduced the size so I could upload it. Straight out of the K-7 and the lens.

As you can see if there is any effect from the scratches on the image it is very hard to notice...
