Item Description
I got this lens from a pentax user and videographer who had de-clicked and used it mostly on his Panasonic GH4. I put a ball bearing from an old -A lens, and used it for a few years with no issues. I used it extensively on my K5 and K3 with katzeye, the lens proved to be excellent optically, very sharp and wider apertures, In IQ i found it to be comparable to the Sigma art 35, sans AF. The lens has apperture issues, selling for parts (perhaps someone with better skills and knowledge can fix it)

Aesthetically: Excellent, no wear or visible issues

Optically: Clean, with no issues

Mechanically: About a year ago i noticed when using the aperture ring to stop down manually, the lens aperture would slip. To fix it, i had to remove the rear mount and preposition the lens every time it happens. The lens works for a time when the aperture is set to past F-22 to -A setting, using the camera body to adjust the aperture, but if you stop down manually, chances are the inner mechanism will slip and it has to be readjusted. In addition the aperture ring turns during the attachment and detachment of the lens, exacerbating the issue and the chances of the aperture mechanism misalignment. Selling for parts as is.

Comes with Original caps, box and soft cover.

K5 + Rokion 35mm @ f3.5
