[SOLD] SMC Pentax A 50mm 1:1.7 Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
SMC Pentax A 50mm 1:1.7

Asking Price

Item Description
For your consideration.
This is a really nice copy of this Pentax A 50mm f:1.7

Glass is perfect on this one. Cosmetically very good.
Blades are smooth and snappy.
The only reason I have listed this as "good" condition is that it is missing the front cap, and has a generic rear cap.

Quoted shipping rate is for continental USA only. Contact me for a quote on international shipping.

PM me here on this forum, or email me at

First come first served. Get in now. This won't last at this price.

Thanks for looking.

You are so generous and Chris is a good buyer and he deserves that lens. I recently upgraded form M 50mm f/1.7 to A 50mm f/1.7 and that thing rocks. Though the two are similar in IQ, I like the 'A' as when I combined with F-1.7x, I have a decent 85mm f/2.8 and I produce pictures with great sharpness and bokeh. That A 50 f/1.7 from you is the best lens that you can buy anywhere for $40.00. If I have to sell mine, it will be north of $65.0 as I won't part with mine though I have the FA 50 f/1.4. The A 50 f/1.7 is very sharp and bokeh is excellent, manual focusing is top notch in that lens and the MFD is 0.45m and I use it quite often for close up

Thanks for you kind words.
I am having a bit of a fire sale.
I knew it wouldn't last long at that price, but that was the point tonight.
I hope Chris enjoys the lens.
