smc Pentax-FA 50mm F1.7 lens - $60 shipped

Asking Price
60.00 USD

Item Location
Michigan (United States)

Item Description
For sale here is an smc Pentax-FA 50mm F1.7 lens. It has fungus on one of internal elements. Unfortunately, it can't be cleaned according to Eric Hendrickson. I sent it to him for cleaning. He told me fungus is on one sealed element therefore can't be cleaned. He doesn't have replacement parts, so he returned it to me. I offer the lens here at low price.

Physical condition of the lens is excellent. It only has minor normal wear. It looks clean. All functions are fine. AF is fast. Manual focus is smooth. Aperture blades are clean, dry, and snappy. I don't see fungus on other elements. Inside of lens is clean with minimal dust other than the fungus mentioned here. The impact of fungus on image is subjective. Though you can see from lens pictures that fungus is not minimal, I don't see it affects photos I took with it. I also post here several photos taken with this lens for you to judge. Maybe at some extreme condition, you may see impact but I'm not sure. If you want to see more photos or larger photos, let me know.

One more thing I want to mention is there is a minor scratch on front element. It is very shallow and looks like a touch mark on coating but I couldn't remove it using lens cleaner. It is about 5mm long (see first picture). From my eye, I don't see it affects image.

Rear lens cap and a front filter are included.

$60 shipped to US. Other places, please ask. Due to the condition of lens, no return please.
I take PayPal or money order. I'll take care of PayPal fees. Thanks!
