Imperfect copies of rare lenses - K50/1.2 A15/3.5

Two working, but imperfect, copies of some legendary lenses. I bought them to shoot with, but it's time to move on. These aren't for collectors, but rather for people who will actually shoot with them.

K50/1.2 - $350 - Fair to good cosmetic condition. Very little internal dust for a lens of this age. It was cleaned by some previous owner, though, and there is a small mark (my guess is 5mm) on an internal element. Make no mistake, if you're looking for creamy/dreamy bokeh, this lens is amazing, and can at times be very sharp (check out the focal point of the A15 lens - the 'ft' mark - in the photo below). Definitely needs a hood, though, especially in bright light. Comes with front and back caps.

A15/3.5 - SOLD - Another fair cosmetic condition lens that works very well if you can handle its imperfections. Built-in filters work, focus is smooth, as are the aperture blades. The two main issues: It will focus past infinity at times (nothing a good $50 CLA wouldn't fix). It also has minor scratches (less than 5mm) on the front element. I've included some pictures, basically to highlight them, but I've also included a shot of the front element as a whole and they're very tough to see. It also has a boo-boo on the 'A' ring. My guess is someone would love to slap this on a FF Sony A7 and give it a run (or, heaven forbid, an actual film camera). Also, it does come with the original Pentax cap for the front, and with the back cap.

If someone wants them both, I'll package them for $1000. Will accept Paypal, and will ship only to US for now. Please ask if you have any questions.
