CPC 70-210mm f/4 KA-mount auto-aperture lens, Pentax SMC-A copy, Worldwide ship!

Asking Price
USD $100

Item Description
Welcome again! I'm forced to pair down my collection more, and this is the next lens up on the chopping block. To the best of my knowledge, this CPC lens is simply a remanufacture/rebranding of the Pentax SMC-A 70-210mm f/4 lens of critical acclaim on this forum and everywhere else. Extremely sharp pictures wide open, at all focal lengths, including macro mode. You can see some pictures I took with the lens in a thread I made in the gallery:

https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/post-your-photos/69662-its-hip-square.html

I don't really know why I'm selling this lens -- it's of amazing quality. Probably just because I want to have a shot at paying my heating bill this month But if I were in a better position, there'd be no way I'd let go of this.

The condition of the lens is marked as just "Good". While the glass is excellent or even mint, with no visible imperfections, the grip for the one-touch zoom action is cracking a little, and could stand to be repaired if it really bothers you. It doesn't affect the function though, just the comsetics. The rest of the body is in great condition, except for a few minor scuffs on the barrel and built in lens shade. The zoom is smooth and so is the focus. The lens, of course, works perfectly, and it comes with a generic rear cap and the original front cover with the CPC insignia on it.

Here are pictures of the lens:

Is this really a 70-210? I see 200 in the first picture. So, I was confused a bit by that. Just wondering.

Teaches me to post without re-reading numbers! Yes, it is indeed 70-200, with a 1:4 macro, and a 58mm filter thread. I'm still quite sure it's a copy of the pentax... seems focal lengths are interchangeable sometimes

Acording to Dimitrov's website. This is the same as the non-SMC takumar A zoom 70-200.

$80 plus shipping. Just a note, this will be the last price drop for this item before being removed. Take it from me!
