Soligor 20mm F2.8 P-Kmount - Fast Wide Rare little gem

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Soligor 20mm F2.8 P-Kmount - Fast Wide Rare little gem

Asking Price
215.00 USD

Item Location
Seattle, WA (United States)

Item Description
MC Soligor C/D Wide-Auto 1:2.8 20mm, serial no. 88521174

This is a manual lens only, very fast for how small and wide it is. Can be a bit soft wide open but creates some of the most unique rendering I've ever seen and responds very well to post-processing. Surprisingly close-focusing at only 0.2 meters! The focus throw is quite short as well making it quick. Very cool lens that I've held onto because it's so small, fun and unusual and makes such a great travel lens, but finally selling to fund other purchases (and so it goes).

There are some amazing images on Flickr and here by FS999 using this lens - his shots with it are spectacular. The last two below were shot with it by me on Ektar100 using a Pentax MX.

Condition: Some paint rub in a few places and light cleaning marks in the surface coating front but no actual scratches, haze, fungus, fog etc... In really good condition overall and works perfectly. Nothing that would affect the photos. Original Soligor front cap and Pentax end cap included. $215 shipped in the cont. US.

***I will happily trade this, straight across, for a *very* good cond Jupiter 3 m39 LTM lens.***

Cheers -Kevin

I suppose I might yes... That would be funny though since I had it shipped from Germany about 2 1/2 years ago.
(also, please quote my replies or hit me up in a PM just so to make sure I see any messages. I missed this one until now.)

One person is still deliberating. Anyone else want to step on up? You know you want some fast/cheap 20mm coverage. I just got a Pentax-M 20/4, which most definitely isn't as fast but is a tiny bit smaller and I'm gonna keep it, so the Soligor is still up for grabs.

btw - I added to the listing above also: ***I will happily trade this, straight across, for a *very* good cond Jupiter 3 m39 LTM lens.***

I can't believe no one needs a 20.... I will entertain (non-ridiculous) offers.

It does indeed. I've used it equally on my K-5 and K-3 as well as most of my Pentax film bodies.
Didn't see this response. Please quote me on responses so I get notified or just PM me. Cheers.

Started thinking about purchasing it. The most discouraging is FX rate USD / RUB
