[SOLD] Pentax SF1n + Pentax-F 50mm f1.7 Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax SF1n ($20) + Pentax-F 50mm f1.7 ($100)

Asking Price US$ 120
SF1n Still available.

Item Description
Just had to list this combo after seeing another system go for sale but here are the main differences:

Never shot film with this camera. It seems to make all the right sounds but I cannot claim that the camera is 100% functional. If you have specific questions about the camera, please PM me and I will do my best to provide specific answers.

The lens on the other hand, which looks rough around the edges, performs impeccably. As is the case with most F series 50mm lenses, the filter ring has a crack/bent therefore requires a precise effort to screw on the PHOTAPE UV 49mm filter but it does stay on solid once screwed on.

Also there is a bit of wobble in the barrel but AF on my K20D has been spot-on. This lens does not look perfect, but it surely rivals my FA 50mm f1.4 at every aperture (from f1.7) in performance.

Uploaded another picture to show a crack in the window of the lens, as shown with a yellow circle. Also circled is the dent I've mentioned on the filter ring.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Are you selling or trading this item?

First one is at f8 followed by 100% crop, Second one is at f4 followed by 100% crop, and the last one is wide open at f1.7. All pictures were taken with a K20D v1.03 with the on-board flash.
