SMC Pentax-M 28mm f3.5 Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
SMC Pentax-M 28mm f3.5

Asking Price
55.00 USD

Item Location
Near Charlotte, NC (United States)

Item Description
If you don't own this little classic, you need it. Small, light, solidly built. Tack sharp (sometimes viewed as sharper than the f2.8 version), beautiful color rendition. There is great info in the reviews section here on the forums.

This copy has average cosmetic wear for its age, visible on the aperture dial in the images. The mount shows some signs of use, but not much. The glass looks terrific, with no fungus, coating separation or scratches on the front or rear elements. There is almost certainly some internal dust, but nothing that would impact image quality, and it's really hard to see, even harder to photograph. The diaphragm is oil-free front and rear, and is snappy in operation. Comes with the correct OE Pentax front and rear caps.

There is some scarring of the front rim of the lens, so at some point in its life it has been dropped or bumped against something. I do not see a discernible dent, and the filter threads look good. The telltale is that it is finicky to thread a filter on, and while there is some resistance, a filter does thread all the way on. Focusing is generally smooth, but there is a spot in the middle of the focus throw where you hit some resistance. I had forgotten about it until I checked the lens out for the listing, because I really didn't notice when shooting with it.

Please ask any questions you may have before buying. If any of the issues I mention are a deal-breaker, please do not buy the lens.

Shipping cost and PayPal fees included in price.

Bump to be sure that offers/trades were in the mix. Would prefer to sell here than on eBay.

A bump for a great lens... I certainly enjoy mine. Amazing for fall colors! And sharper than the Pentax f/2.8 versions (I've had 2, the M and the A).
