FA50/1.4 and A50/1.7

Up for sale today are a couple of my 50mm lenses. Since getting my 50-135 back and getting a K55/1.8, I haven't since touched these lenses.

Up for sale first is my old walkaround lens, the FA 50/1.4. It basically lived on my K30. It has seen a lot, and sadly looks it. (Poor cosmetics, good optics.)
It has suffered a drop slightly warping the filter thread. (No idea if that'll effect filter use) and has quite a bit of dust inside (I have no idea how, or when it got there) and a slight scuff on the distance scale.
However, the lens is optically and mechanically fine. The aperture blades are clean and snappy. The dust, though appearing to be significant, has not effected any shot I took with it, and the lens performs very well.

Includes both caps. $200 SHIPPED SOLD for $200

Next up is my A50/1.7. THis one has seen much less use. (I would rate as Excellent according to the official marketplace definitions)
Glass is clean with minimal dust. Aperture blades clean and snappy. Sharp. Includes rear push cap.




$60 SHIPPED SOLD FOR $50
The shots of the A50/1.7 above were all shot on the FA50/1.4 I'm selling here. For those concerned about the image quality, take a look.

I can provide more pictures upon request, just post or PM me.

Feel free to make offers, but please don't try to low-ball me.
Payment is only accepted though Paypal.
Shipping will be handled through the USPS. US only for the included prices, for worldwide shipping cost, PM me

Another bump. The FA50/1.4 has been sold, but the A50/1.7 is still available!

What is the condition of the aperture ring? Is it fully functional when off the "A" setting?

The aperture ring works perfectly from the bit I messed around with it like that.

Not to my knowledge. A quick google search seems to show that it's correct... What makes it seem reversed?

Maybe hj630 is referring to the overlap of the diaphragm blades? If so, as SpartanD63 said, it's perfectly normal.
Here's a thread on that subject: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/10-pentax-slr-lens-discussion/245091-back...gm-blades.html


By the way, I love my copy of the A 50 1.7. It's small, sharp, fast and has "A" functionality. Just an excellent lens.

Yes thats what seemed weird to me. But thanks for the clarification, I guess pentax has lots of lens like that
