FAST Cosina 55mm F/1.2 Lens Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
FAST Cosina 55mm F/1.2 Lens

Asking Price
199.95 USD

Item Location
WI (United States)

Item Description
Manual-focus Cosina 55mm F/1.2 lens - super fast and sharp! In Pentax K mount.

Pristine glass. Smooth focus. Perfect aperture blades.

When I purchased this lens a year ago, there was a slight "rattle" when I shook it. The rattle was caused by the aperture lever, so I removed it (see last photo). Now - no rattle.

This lens works perfectly in the "Aperture Priority" (A) shooting mode on my K1 and K3 cameras without this lever.

Just set the shooting mode dial to "A" (aperture priority), turn the lens' aperture ring to what I want, and shoot away.

Please note that this lens will not work in any of the other shooting modes (unless the aperture lever and spring are replaced).

Comes with front and rear caps. Also I will include the aperture lever and spring that I removed in case you want to replace it.

I took a rapid series of handheld photos today of the same scene at different apertures to demonstrate how well this lens works in the A shooting mode on my K1. Check out my Flickr album for these images.

That is one very fine lens (which I do own as well ) and it should sell quickly ... rather scarce these days!
Using it on my K7 and K5 (manually) .... very nice rendition of colours and Bokeh.

BTW: with the aperture lever removed, you can use the it in "A" mode ?
