  • I have added in both generic front & rear caps
  • addition: 14 days return policy upon delivery

What lenses do you still have in the Pentax system if these sell?

Sad to see the DA 50-135mm go, not sure I would ever sell mine!

Lens is on hold until I figure out the issues
it is not fungus, looks like coating with spots on rear

It is more difficult to sell this lens than the 31mm limited. I love this lens much more than the 31mm limited as I can't find a replacement for this lens. This is the most expensive lens in my bag and I am going back to my roots in using inexpensive gear, I will fill in the needs with my primes in 50mm, 77mm, 90mm, and 135mm. I have been trying to cut my zoom lens to the bare minimum before I can think of a 2nd system. I would be using a cheap Kiron 70-150mm f/3.8 two touch zoom to fill the needs.

Thanks,
Hin

I think the Pentax M 40mm f/2.8 is the same structure with the DA 40mm f/2.8 Limited. Pancake size. I got the DA and very happy with it.

Good luck, Hin. You have nice prices, as usual. The 40mm pancake is a steal and I'm surprised it's still available. It's a great lens for hyperfocal street use.

And free bump

M42 adapters are sold

I want to add in the pictures for the used adapters. Both are sold but I want to keep a record for the adapters selling in this thread







There are different versions of genuine adapter with different wordings that I have seen in different times. All genuine adapters go without an extra tool in dismounting, and when new, they come with a green packet
  • "Asahi Pentax" on top and "Japan" on bottom
  • "Pentax" on top and "Japan" on bottom"
  • "Body Mount P/K" followed by "Japan" on top

You can reference the dismounting/mounting instruction in this link
I personally use thumb and index fingers to do the dismounting instead of using pen as in Pentax instruction.

Hin's Rough Instruction
no video unfortunately
  • Precaution step is to have your camera resting on base, don't lay your camera on its back as adapter can fall into the mirror chamber during mounting and dismounting steps
  • -
  • I use thumb and index finger to hold the adapter, line up flange onto three open areas in K mount
  • -
  • on mounting, remember to tuck the spring plate in and turn clockwise until you hear the click
  • -
  • on dismounting, find the open hole and tuck the spring plate towards center and turn adapter anti-clockwise. Without tucking the spring plate, the adapter is locked in place in the K mount body

Pentax M 40mm f/2.8 on hold

I am placing a hold on the lens until I figure what I see on the rear element. I bought it for $70, you are welcome to make your offer.
