[SOLD] Pentax A-24mm f/2.8,Pentax A-24-50 f/4,Pentax M-35 f/2..also a Pancake

Hi all..I am reducing Some of the Prices after a day in the market..a number of lenses for sale,all good old manual pentax glass..
Pretty much around the wide to normal range.. if you need wide to normal,keep reading
First..
SOLD.Pentax A-24mm 2.8( i did review this lens recently,so you know i like it!)
Condition is excellent,only shows small amount of use around aperture ring,and glass is perfect..perfect ,smooth focus and positive aperture...I did the review of this lens ,and found it to be fantastic,I was talking about lenses with the guy in the camera shop,and he agreed ..Is the kind of lens that you feel right away good about it..the perspective is digital is nice(in film is wide and expansive),great images wide open and very close focus capabilities (0.26m. ).This lens doesn't creates any distortion ,all lines are straight and perspective natural.
.I bought this lens a while back ,used ,locally ,in excellent condition,.SOLD!!!!!!!!!!!


PRICE FURTHER REDUCED!!!!Pentax A-24-50 F/4 ,Pretty impressive lens!..very solid,all metal,great size and nice range.
Very nice images!Sharp,Sharp and contrasty,with excellent bokeh.Comparisons are obnoxious ,but,this lens is MUCH better than the kit lens in terms of image quality and build(and i found the 18-55 II ,to be quite decent).
condition is as close to perfect as a used lens can be,Glass perfect..
Hard to price because there are not many,if any around to compare.I have seen one for sale for 120(couple of years back,totally subjective price)and another mention to price ,in a more recent online review @200$
..US 100 plus shipping and fees

ALSO REDUCED!!!Pentax M-35 F/2..excellent lens,fast,Bright view in the digital viewfinder so easy to manual focus.Sharp at 2.8..sharper at 3.5..great Out of focus areas wide open..Glass IS PERFECT ,lens is perfect,but shows a couple of tiny spots of missing paint(like a small flake) in the outer edge filter ring(NOT dented,)probably caused by an ill fitting filter
Also Reduced to US 150$+/- fees

Also have a used,with some brassing but perfect operation ,perfect glass ,clean inside and outside Pentax M-40mm 2.8 PANCAKE!!!!..I really want to review this lens in the lens page,because i think is VERY underrated ..If you have not seen or tried this lens,you owe it to yourself,really..In an ME super body is a thing of beauty!..Very much a compromise lens ,CANNOT be compared with other lenses..It doesnt focus close,because doesnt extent more than few millimeters!! but images are good(C,mon is Pentax,..Is not like they didnt think about image quality when this lens was designed!!!).....Also 200$$:ughIM KIDDING!!!!!!!_),US85$ +SHIP

I USE PAYPAL FOR SECURITY AND CONVENIENCE,FEES CAN BE SPLIT;I SHIP USPS ,WORLWIDE INSURED,AND I HAVE FEEDBACK IN THE FORUM,EBAY AND ASTROMART.....THANKS

A quality lineup here, folks

The 24-50 is indeed a strange lens. I've seen a couple for sale...one at Adorama and the one I bought locally. Mine was a steal (I'll leave it at that) since it's an anomaly. Good lens though...nice focal length range, constant f/4, A contacts, small-ish size, impressive bokeh...it's my walkaround on both digital and film Similar lenses are the Tamron SP 24-48 and the Zuiko 24-40 (which apparently has only 1 copy in existence )

I will afford a 35/2, someday.

The Pancake 40 is ever-so-tempting now that I have an MX.

Good luck...this is one of the best F/S threads I've seen around here

rian s:Thanks for the Bump...I was impressed indeed with the bokeh of the 24-50,and the sharpness..It captures enormous amount of detail,even wide open...The 35/2 M,is very dandy.It is a bit dreamy wide open,mostly in terms of contrast,but i havent used filters on it(I have this 49mm vivitar polarizer..I wonder if...?)Out of focus areas are beautiful and stop down to 2.8/3.5 and there you go(really one stop is enough,and even wide in the right light work pretty well)..It is a joy to manually focus,that is for sure..I may keep it,i dont even know why i did reduced the price!!!!!
And the Pankake.((((NOW SOLD!!!!)))). IT IS TOTALLY UNDERRATED..most of the reviews in the forum are negative..NO,,It is now easy to find it around 100$..And it is worth that for sure..It is a rarity ,a compromise lens,It looks beautiful in a film body and works good in digital.It would actually be a great street lens,due to the small size and convenient focal lenght.And really ,a couple points of aperture down ,this lens is great..

M-40 f/2.8 "Pancake"

It would actually be a great street lens,due to the small size and convenient focal lenght.
My orignal plan was to perma-mount a Tak 50 to my MESuper and carry it in a jacket pocket - a bit too heavy.

Plan B - perma-mount the 40, slip in a generic belt pouch, keep in the glove box. Add a couple of 49mm filters and I'm in business.
