[SOLD] 200mm f/3.5 (Worldwide)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
200mm f/3.5 (Worldwide)

Asking Price
$40

Item Description
The lens is a Hanimex 200mm f/3.5 manufactured in Japan, where all good lenses come from It is an M42 mount permanently converted to K mount by the attachment of an adapter and the drilling of a hole to accommodate the body lens pin. So basically, it's a K mount with stop-down diaphragm, which means you can shoot in Av

The lens is in excellent cosmetic condition, looking barely used, and the glass has no scratches or marks. There is very little dust inside, and certainly not enough to affect pictures. The aperture ring clicks with no problems. Not that it matters for this lens, but the aperture blades are clean and snappy.

The lens takes 62mm filters. I include a rear cap, but I'm afraid I don't have a front one.

As far as IQ is concerned, it's pretty sharp wide open (see the portrait shot in the next post) and plenty sharp by f/5.6. I've mainly shot it wide open, as that's what I wanted it for. I've not had any flare problems, but it would probably be wise to use it with a hood, although I never got around to buying one. I have another M42 200mm f/3.5, which is why I'm selling this one. The other one hasn't been converted to K mount so I thought this one would be easier to use for most potential buyers.

I'll post pics of the actual lens later this evening when I get home.

I'll include some shots taken with this lens in another post.

If interested, leave a reply to the thread (as that's how I'll establish order of precedence) and then follow up with a PM.
