Item Description
Pentax-M 135mm 3.5 - $50: I did a review of this lens about a week ago while trying to decide if I wanted to keep it or not. I bought this as old-new-stock back in college and used it regularly for portraits on my *ist 35mm film body. Being an M-series, the lens needs to be used with stop-down metering in Manual mode.

Overall, excellent condition. Lens is clean. Apart from a few flecks of paint missing from the grip of the built-in hood, there is next to no evidence of handling on the lens barrel. The aperture ring moves smoothly with good clicks per setting. FWIW, I'll mention the aperture ring has, by design, half-stops between all standard stops except between f/22 and f/32. The focus ring moves smoothly. The built-in hood works nicely and has no wobble. The glass elements are clean and clear - no haze or fungus. There are a few microscopic dust particles inside, nothing that affects image quality whatsoever. Overall, a typical M-series specimen. (meaning great!)

The lens will come with rear and front caps.

Shot wide-open at f/3.5 - 100% crop on the right. No sharpening applied, only edited for exposure and contrast.

Image on left was at either f/3.5 or f/4, Image on right was around f/11
