SMC 55mm f/1.8 'K' lens Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
SMC 55mm f/1.8 'K' lens

Asking Price
50.00 USD

Item Location
western WA (United States)

Item Description

I hate to let this go but I have three fifties (5mm). This could be best of the bunch for image quality overall, but the A50/2.8 Macro is my only decent closeup lens so it stays. The small and talented A50/2 is listed elsewhere.

This lens is optically unmarked and physically top-notch. Lettering is also all there. It appears that someone scraped the lens lightly while focused at infinity and f/4, as a bit of black is missing from barrel and the top edge of both focus and aperture rings. That's it, and definitely no effect on imaging.

Go see the 'K' club images, every 3rd shot posted there seems to be with a copy of this lens!

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?
