[SOLD] Pentacon MC 29mm / 2.8 (M42) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentacon MC 29mm / 2.8 (M42)

Asking Price
USD $60

Item Description
The Pentacon series of lenses have a fairly good reputation, and one that is well deserved in my opinion. Have gotten this one to try, and it doesn't disappoint at all!

What I like about this lens: the image quality is good, and the build quality, as with all old lenses, is excellent. One feature about the lens that I quite liked was the focusing distance, which goes down to 25cm - allowing you to get relatively close to the subject

Lens condition:
Optical: 9 / 10 (no fungus or haze, not even a lot of internal dust expected of old lenses. There are 2 just barely noticeable scratches that does not at all affect optical quality. In fact, I didn't notice the scratches til i took pictures of the lens - see picture 1 below)
Mechanical: 8.5 (no damage, just the wear from use expected for an old lens)

Images from the lens, on b&w film

will put up images of the lens, if there's interest.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Are you selling or trading this item?

Additional Details
Trying to see if there's interest here - my first attempt at selling on this marketplace. No one seems interested in this one here in Singapore.
Credibility-wise, I could ask Frank to help vouch for me, for those interested.

Please send me a private message if interested in the item!
