[SOLD] K-mount 28mm 2.8 Macro by Kalimar

K-mount 28mm 2.8 Macro by Kalimar

Asking Price
20

Item Description
This lens is in great condition, has the A-setting, and takes 49mm filters. Focuses down to 1:6, which I guess earns it a macro designation (according to the lens). The only problem with the lens is that it is a PK-A/R lens. However, I performed "surgery" on the lens, removing the Ricoh pin and trimming down the aperture shield, so it isn't a problem at all! It now meters in A-mode like a normal A-series lens. It's a fun little lens, definitely worth giving it a spin. The flange now has some bare aluminum where the excess was removed (allowing it to be mounted on Pentax dSLRs), but has been filed down and is smooth. No shavings or other debris on the glass. This lens now performs exactly the same as a Pentax-A 28mm 2.8 lens.

This is a nice, well-built lens, with clean glass and snappy aperture blades free of oil or other imperfections.
