What you get

Glass, body, and aperture are great. No marks, no haze, no fungus, no oil. Small amount of dust inside but nothing unexpected (has no affect on image quality). The aperture ring clicks nicely. The focus ring moves well, just as it should. The mount and contact points look good.

Why I'm selling it

I have two copies of this lens. No sense in keeping both!

My impressions

I have seven 50mm lenses for the K mount and this one is my most used. I love it. I carry it with me everywhere my camera goes. It's also the only one I have two copies of.

About the lens

I've heard many people on the forum call this one of Pentax's sharpest lenses. It was produced between 1987-1991. I bet you anything your Canikon friends aren't shooting with quality lenses of that vintage!
For all of those who may not know, this is an auto focusing lens.
