Item Description
This is the well-regarded SMC PENTAX-FA 50mm f1.7, one of the sharpest lens Pentax has ever made. I HAVE TWO OF THEM AND WILL ONLY SELL THE FIRST ONE THAT GOES. They perform identically.

The first one is mint. Not much to say about it. It's optically, mechanically and cosmetically in perfect shape. This one is $245

The second one I'm selling way under market value, $160, because of two cosmetic issues:

- It has a 1/2 of an inch scratch on the focusing ring. (see picture, right hand side)
-There is some very thin "blemish" on the very edge of the rear element. It's 1/32 to 1/16 of an inch wide (see picture). Being on the very edge, it has no impact on the image, but you should know it's there.

Both lenses are very sharp even wide open and produce a very pleasant bokeh at large aperture (see pictures)

Pentax Forum rating for this prime lens currently is 9.61 SMC Pentax-FA 50mm F1.7 Reviews - FA Prime Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

Original caps and Hoya UV filter included.

Pictures below are straight RAW to Jpeg with no post processing added, in order to show raw performance only. The last two pictures are wide open!

Thank you!
