[SOLD] SMC Pentax-A 50mm 1:1.7 - manual mode only Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sold-SMC Pentax-A 50mm 1:1.7 - manual mode only

Asking Price
$35.00 SOLD

Item Description
This 50mm is cosmetically perfect, there is almost no dust in the lens and zero oil or fungus. It does have some mechanical problems and only works in manual mode.

1: The aperture ring is rough. Inside the aperture ring are two pressure springs. Those springs in a perfect lens are "heat welded" (with melted plastic) to the barrel, the welds on one of the springs has come loose and the aperture ring won't stay "locked" in "A". It moves to "A" and stays there it just won't lock. But that is irrelevant...

2: the "A" pin in the mount has been removed. In an attempt to fix the lens, the parts were removed and subsequently lost...sorry. It is missing the pin, the coil spring and a the elevator that pushed the pin out. If you have a beat up "A" lens these parts may be salvageable.

I am sure that this lens is completely repairable at a reasonable cost, I just don't want to take the time or effort.

Please let me know if you have questions.
