[SOLD] K 50mm f1:1.2

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
K 50 / 1.2

Asking Price
US$300

Item Description
Selling the fastest pentax glass available, the K 50 mm / 1.2. The glass is 10/10, and has relatively little internal dust for such an old lens. The lens body would be a 7/10, old, used, worn, but no problems at all with functionality. The rubber focusing ring is slightly loose, but this is apparently not uncommon among the K 50 / 1.2s.

On the image quality of the lens - From my personal experience, the lens is quite sharp wide open at the potin of focus, improving as you stop down to f2, and reaches excellent levels at f 4.0 and above. Nonetheless, because of the very thin DOF at 1.2, it is not an easy lens to use - sometimes the image would seem soft, but that would be a matter of getting the focusing point right and not because of inferior IQ from the lens. The real strength of this lens lies in its bokeh - at 1.2, it gives a creamy and dreamy effect.

Pictures from the lens as below (first 3 are wide open, 4th is at f2):

hmmm. no indication of interest at all, so I guess this is a bad time to sell this lens. Will remove it from sale for the time being then. Interested parties who come across this thread can still PM me tho!

Am marking this as sold for the time being.
