[SOLD] Pentax SMC-A* 85mm F/1.4

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax SMC-A* 85mm F/1.4

Asking Price
$1250 USD - (dropped from $1300 Aug. 25)

Item Description
Excellent mechanically and optically. Aperture blades are snappy, no oil. Glass is clear, no scratches, no fungi, some tiny specks of dust, normal for any lens and should not affect photo IQ.

Includes:
  1. The lens itself (of course)
  2. Original front and rear caps.
  3. An UV filter
  4. Case

Satisfaction guaranteed. Try it for a week, if you decide it's not for you, send it back (your cost) in the condition you received it for a full refund.

At this point, I only ship it to US addresses.

Additional Details
I don't think I need to say much about this legendary lens. It's a great lens, but we don't use it enough to justify keeping it. I had a chat with my partner (14 yr. old son) and we agreed that we should let it go. The proceed will likely be applied toward a K-7 body (thus the price).

Please send me a private message if interested in the item!

I will sell to the first person committed to buy (A message saying "I'm interested." is NOT a commitment to buy.)

Thanks.

My son wants a Bigma. I wants a K-7.

We haven't agreed what to buy yet, but we both agreed that the 85mm was under-utilized with the kinds of photos we were shooting.....

Bump for an awesome lens. I had a KEH.COM rated "UG" copy years ago, but sold it when it died due to water damage when my bag was flooded.. Hated to see it go.

I highly recommend Soldbear as a reputable seller. I have bought from him several times with pleasant experience. He is always honest and trustworthy in the sale. I met him in person recently and I have seen his 85mm lens and this is no f/1.8, it is f/1.4 with 'A', a very rare find.

Thanks,
Hin

I've got this lens and it's great. Probably my sharpest lens which is really saying something. Good luck with the sale.
