[SOLD] SMC Pentax K135mm/3.5 EXC

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
SMC Pentax K135/3.5 EXC

Asking Price
$65.00 USD Firm SALE PENDING

Item Description
This pristine K-Series lens (manufactured1975-1977) is in excellent cosmetic and mechanical condition, with surprisingly clear glass and the traditional Pentax solid manual focus feel. I originally purchased this lens from a respected Forum member but have not used it enough to justify keeping it.

This K-Series lens is a pleasure to use with any Pentax bayonet mount film or digital camera - small and light for a medium telephoto. It produces very sharp images, contrasty and well-saturated.

Not Pictured - original-style Asahi Pentax rear and Pentax 52mm front lens caps.

I attached the usual test image I set up when I shot the lenses I am selling.

She's a beauty!
If I didn't already have the M135/3.5 I'd be all over this.

Bumped

Bumped for a lower price. I know times are tough, but this is an exceptional copy of this lens.

Moral support

Nothing but moral support for you here Monochrome as I already have this lens. My review of the K 135/3.5 is listed in the database link above. If you are in the market for a manual focus 135mm this is a steal.

Ooh, I could use a 135 mm prime... and what better than a K?

I wonder how much is in my bank account...

So do I - that's why I'm selling (and the economy).

444 views, 1 price reduction, 1 PM (no money) and a few nice comments.

I bought this on the Forum with no rear cap and a coating of dust on the rear element. I was unable to remove the dust (even using ROR), so I sent it to Eric for diagnosis.

He cleaned it and adjusted the focus ring - then I had an opportunity to purchase a K-135/2.5, a lens I let get away some years ago, so this is now surplus.

The economy really is that bad.
