[SOLD] FS: SMC Pentax-A 28mm f2.8 lens

I'm still clearing out some duplicate lenses from my collection. This SMC Pentax-A 28mm f2.8 lens was purchased from KEH last year and is in their EX+ condition. The glass and exterior finish are perfect; the mount shows only slight wear and I would list it as near-mint if the rear protective tab located beside the aperture stopdown lever had not been removed by a previous owner (neatly done and the cut reblacked). Of course the lack of this tab has no effect on the functionality of the lens; evidently it was removed in order to use the lens on a Ricoh or some other non-Pentax body.

I paid $100 for this lens and ones like it currently sell on eBay for $100-$120, but because of the missing tab and my need to consolidate my lens collection I'm only asking $75 plus $7 for shipping via Priority Mail. Comes with generic front and rear caps; I will also include a UV filter if you want one.

This is a really nice lens for anyone who would like a near-normal manual focus prime for their Pentax DSLR. Image quality is excellent, with only slight softness wide open and outstanding performance at f4 and above. As with all of my sales, I guarantee that the lens is exactly as represented or I will refund your money.

If interested please contact me at <> or send me a private message through the Forum mail system. I prefer payment via PayPal or money order/bank check.

Regards, Jim

I guess I'll have to eBay this one if nobody here contacts me within the next few days.

This lens has now been sold to a fellow forum member.
