SMC Pentax 35mm f/3.5 lens - price drop

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
SMC Pentax 35mm f/3.5 K-series lens

Asking Price
75.00 USD

Item Location
Ottawa, Ontario (Canada)

Item Description


The manual focus SMC Pentax 35/3.5 is highly rated for its exceptional sharpness, microcontrast, and well-controlled aberrations.

Review: SMC Pentax 35mm F3.5 Reviews - K Prime Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

Glass
- No scratches or fungus
- Front element has some light cleaning marks, not readily apparent
- Upon casual inspection, the glass appears almost pristine. A close inspection with a bright light at a certain angle reveals a faint hazy ring around part of the circumference of the rear element, as seen in the attached picture. I have not observed any negative effect on image quality (I use a K-3 II).
- Some internal dust.

Body and mechanical
- The body is in excellent condition, showing minimal signs of wear
- No dings, dents or scuffs
- Several very small abrasions on the aperture ring and a couple of pinpoint marks
- Aperture blades are snappy and free of oil or residue
- The manual focus action is buttery smooth and nicely damped across the entire range.
- The aperture-ring action is smooth and the Ďclicksí are positive.

I have several lenses at this focal length, so Iím letting this one go.

Although Iíve found this lens to be fully functional and capable of excellent images, Iím asking a below-average price owing to the flaw on the rear element.

Included: Lens; Pentax front and rear caps.

Welcome to the club
I gave away my first copy in lieu of a body cap!

I have another copy that I have used for years.
Did I get it from you maybe? I can't recall.

With this new one I will have two copies, for two Pentax K kits.
