[SOLD] 50mm SMC-A /1.7 (CANADA)

I pickup up this lens from Henry's when I got my K10D when they first came out (Boxing Day '06).

Since then I used it extensively with my extension tubes (since sold here), until I picked up a Vivitar S1-105mm MACRO, and as you can well guess this little guy just doesn't cut it any more.

It's a great little lens, sharper than my 50mm FA /1.4, but sadly no auto-focus so it doesn't get much of a work out.

It has an original lens cap (one of the springs sticks) and I think the original not-lens cap (fits on the other end).

The apature blades are free of oil and "snappy", there are a few cosmetic marks on the body, and some dufus (Henrys?) put a sticker on the lens barrel. The elements are free of marks and there is no dust in the lens.

I figured I would try here first, and if you don't get any hits try craigslist and then ebay.

I'm not sure what this is worth, make me an offer, they are about $100 on ebay, but that's slightly more than I paid so I wouldn't expect that much.

After all the help everyone here has done over the last year I would like this lens to go to a good home.

I will post some images if I get a chance. It's late tonight.

The sticker is probably the "Passed" sticker that all Pentax lenses used to have. It's an oval. I have one old lens with the sticker removed, gentle rubbing with ighter fuel removed the stains.

If I didn't already have a SMC-M f2 I'd make you an offer. I'm resisting the urge right now...
