What you get

SMC Pentax M 50mm 1.7
Original Pentax front cap
Generic back cap


Glass, and aperture are great. No visible marks, haze, fungus, or oil. The mount looks good. Small amount of dust inside but nothing unexpected (has no affect on image quality). The aperture ring clicks nicely. The focus ring moves well, just as it should. The only real wear is on the bottom of the lens (side facing downward when mounted on a camera). It is visible in the pictures.

When I purchased the lens, it was missing it's rubber focusing ring. Considering the almost near-impossibility of finding a replacement ring, I decided to make my own. The ring is now rubber and grippier than other Pentax lenses of this vintage. After all those years, the rubber tends to dry out and get hard. Well not mine! And I must say, I actually think it looks nicer than the original.

Why I'm selling it

I have a faster version.

About the lens

M 50mm 1.7 is a classic lens. It has beautiful rendering and is very sharp stopped down. Here's the proof...

It's also very small in relation to most of the modern lenses available for the K mount. It's essentially the size and build quality of Pentax's Ltd lenses.
