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

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

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

Asking Price
USD 50

Item Description
Selling this cos (i) have the FA 31mm, and (ii) i just grafted my M42 - K adaptor permanently on my Viv S1 135mm/2.3. Hence, can no longer use this and might as well let it go.

The lens is in a very good condition given its age. There are 2 very light scratches on the front element that I did not notice until I took photos of the lens. (photo 2 below) Needless to say, it does not affect image quality. (see photos taken by lens)

Would love to, but I don't think I can justify it, having just bought a 28mm.

no worries I'd just wait on it til someone decides to take it - i can't do anything with it since i expended my m42 adaptor... and i've decided its not worth spending ard US 30 for another adaptor when I'm selling this for 60.

Hi Novenus,

Thanks for the interest, but I'd afraid not - I only used the lens on my film MZ -5N on a delta 3200, so no coloured pictures I'm afraid. I've no experience first hand with this lens on how the colour rendering. The strengths of this lens that I know is really the sharpness, good bokeh, and the main selling point imho is the close focusing ability it has.

I was interested till I saw the shipping charges... at half the cost of the lens it was just too much for me.

Yeah I realised. Earlier prices were quoted using speedpost:

http://www.singpost.com/speedpost_rate/SpeedPost_WWC_AP.pdf


there is a cheaper alternative using conventional airmail which will take 2 weeks, but can be cheaper -

Welcome to SingPost

using the second alternative, the cost to US based on a 500g package will be

S$20 , or US$13

This is certainly much more affordable, but without the option to track package (tho I think I can add that at a nominal fee - i'd see if i can absorb that if there is keen interest)

Would anyone be interested if the shipping to US was US$15?

I'm not really looking at making a bundle from the lens, just to let it go since i'm not using it at all. Found 2 more sites reviewing this lens, for those interested:

Pentacon Multi Coating 29mm f/2.8-22.0 FM=25cm EL=7 (Wide) #146 - M42
