[SOLD] Cosmicar 28mm f/2.8 PKA manual focus

Up for sale is a Cosmicar 28mm f/2.8 lens. The aperture ring has an A position. The lens is in great condition with no fungus or haze.

I'm asking $40 USD + shipping worldwide. I'll take Paypal or money order. I'm also willing to cross-ship with established members.

Sample @ f/2.8 -0.3ev

Sample @ f/8 -1ev

This lens is a pretty good alternative to the more expensive Pentax-A 28mm.

Make me an offer if you feel the price is too high!

Cosmicar... Never heard of that one. Sounds like a Gerry Anderson TV show.

For some reason, it's also listed on Bojidar Dimitrov's K-mount site:

i believe Cosmicar is still a brand name of Pentax. In the past, Cosmicar was the lower-end model, like Plymouth (if any of you remember Plymouth) was to Chrysler. The glass may be the same, I just don't know. I've seen used camera departments in very reputable retail stores sell Cosmicar and not sell the weird junky brands we avoid around here.
Even today, Pentax markets CCTV lenses under the Cosmicar name.

PM sent for this lens, been looking for a 28 MM with the "A" setting for a long time... Does it have the rear cap also?
