[SOLD] Pentax SMC 135mm 2.5 $150

Well, I'm sad to let it go, but I just don't use it and it deserves to be used.

This lens has been with me since day one and even used it on my old Pentax ME Super. Since I went digital I've used it once and it's sat gathering dust since (in a place free of moisture and such).

I'm asking $150 based on prices I've seen on here and closed ebay auctions. Currently there is one on Ebay calling for over $200, but mine does have a bit more wear which the images will show. The lens has no signs of fungus and aperture blades are flawless.

Shipping will be $15 insured UPS to the CONUS.

Shipping to Canada will be UPS unless I know you pretty well then I'll do that whole USPS thing that way you don't get charged extra AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Shipping outside of the US will be UPS insured as well since I must have tracking outside the US and I'll have to calculate shipping based on where it's going.

I will ship pretty much anywhere so don't be afraid to PM me if you're interested.

I will accept only Paypal for this lens.

Here are some shots of the lens taken today:








Test shots from the lens today: GORGEOUS BOKEH!!!

f2.5 is a little soft.


f2.8 is SHARP


f5.6 is really SHARP


Here is a link to the last image in a much larger scale to show the great detail this lens has:

Thanks again and hope to hear many PM's!

ALthough the digital format makes it a little long for portraits, you might want to put it on your camera and try to use it again.

I have gotten a lot of use out of the one I picked up last fall. It is a great lens.

I do love the lens, but since I have the 50-135 the length is already covered by one that does a great job. I just prefer someone who needs a great portrait lens will put it to good use instead of mine gathering dust and maybe not working because it isn't being used.
