[SOLD] CPC 80-200mm f/4 Constant-aperture Auto KA-mount Zoom Lens, Only $20

Item for Sale
CPC 80-200mm f/4 Constant-aperture Auto KA-mount Zoom Lens, Only $20

Asking Price
$20

Item Description
For sale here is a very cheap zoom lens. Why is it cheap? Well, believe it or not, it's not the most amazing lens I've ever used and can't quite compare to Limiteds or DA*s It's actually quite respectable at 80mm, up to around 150mm, but it gets very very soft at 200mm. I hope you like my honesty

But it is definitely still usable, and it has a fast constant-aperture, and auto-aperture contacts to easily use with a flash. There is one mechanical fault though, in that the lens barrel was loose and was glued together, but this stopped the aperture ring from being able to turn. It is stuck in "A" mode, where it's most useful at least. Zoom and focus are both smooth still. There is no glue whatsoever near or on the mount. I've used it on my camera with no worries or fears. The glass is in almost-mint condition, with just a little dust. Try as I might, I cannot see any scratches. It comes with the lens and a generic rear cap.

Here are pictures of the lens:

I have some terribly good news for any prospective buyers: not only is the image quality better than I thought, but the aperture ring turns perfectly now. I am a better repairman than I thought!

Judge these sample images, the only editing was to resize them to half their original size:

f/4 macro mode:


f/8 macro mode:

CPC was a division of Asahi Pentax, so buy with confidence that this is well-made and will function properly on your Pentax.
