[SOLD] SMC Pentax 135mm f2.5 Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
SMC Pentax 135mm f2.5

Asking Price

Item Description
SMC Pentax 135mm F2.5 in Fair - Good condition.

SN: 5047138

Asking $110 plus shipping.

No major damage to the lens, but it is obvious that the lens has been used quite a bit. There are several small marks/scratches on the front element, but otherwise the lens is excellent optically. I doubt these will have much of an effect on IQ unless you are shooting into the sun, where you would probably get some additional flare.

Aperture functions correctly, no oil or slowness.

There is significant "brassing" on aperture ring etc from use.

I've tried to represent the condition of the item very well with my photos, and provided very close-up images to capture the detail of the condition.

When I purchased this lens I was hoping that it would replace my other copy of it, but it turned out not to be in as good as condition as I was led to believe. Hopefully someone else can find a home for it.

Includes generic front/rear caps, Tristar filter and SMC Pentax 135/2.5 leather case (not shown)

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Bit of price drop. Even though it has seen plenty of use, it is still capable of taking amazing pictures!

I cannot comment on the condition of this lens, but I have bought a similar lens about a year and a half ago. Haven't regretted that for a single moment. It is a very sharp lens, great rendering colours and smooth bokeh. In my opinion this was the optimal step up from the M135/3.5 that I had till then. The only thing that can throw this king off his throne will have to be the A*135/1.8. But first I'll have to win a lottery...

This is a free bump for a great lens.

Lens is still available. I just realized that I also have the correct pentax leather case for this item, in decent condition, and will include it as well.

Price dropped to $110 plus shipping.
