RARE KA mount Cambron (Spiratone/Soligor) 20mm f/2.8 crazy bokeh lens

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
RARE KA mount Cambron (Spiratone) 20mm f/2.8 crazy bokeh lens

Asking Price
225.00 USD

Item Location
Pennsylvania (United States)

Item Description
A rare KA sample of the Cambron 20mm f/2.8 Ultra Wide lens. This is the same lens as the well-known Spiratone and Soligor lenses of the same focal length, and is rarely seen with the A aperture contacts.

In addition to having excellent center sharpness, it is best known for its absolutely insane bokeh properties:





Lens optics are scratch/haze/fungus free, and mechanics are all in perfect working order. There is a spot on the barrel where the black anodizing is coming off. As an additional enticement, I am willing to do a 50%-off silvering on this lens for an additional $50 if you choose to hgave that done at the time of purchase.

Includes caps

It is due to the overcorrected spherical aberration, similar as the famous Meyer Trioplan 100.
very inserting lens. I never know there is A version of this lens.

Heh, I had the spiratone version... Really liked it, but got stolen and is now probably sitting in a drug dealer stash. If they only new the bokeh they could be capturing, maybe they'd back off the drugs.

...or maybe they do know, the lens would inspire them to try a lot more of them.

Looking at that test image, depending on what they're using I'd say the bokeh could potentially enhance the drug experience. A bit like all the LSD stoners who went to see 2001: A Space Odyssey over and over again...
