[SOLD] Pentax SMC-A 50mm f/1.2 Lens, ships worldwide

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax SMC-A 50mm f/1.2 Lens, ships worldwide

Asking Price
$400 USD

Item Description
Ooof... time to bring out the big guns! I have a Pentax SMC-A (auto-aperture) 50mm f/1.2 lens for sale. Yes, 1.2.

The functional condition is perfect. The aperture ring clicks properly at all stops, and the electronic information is transmitted in the A position. The body of the lens is in A/95% of new condition, having only very minor brassing in certain parts.

The front glass is mint, I do not see any defects at all. The rear glass, however, has one small coating mark about 3mm square in size. It's not a scratch or gouge, but it just doesn't come off when properly cleaned. There are a couple of other very, very small marks on the rear glass too, overall it's about 85% original condition.

Internally, there is NO fungus, haze, mold, or fog, but there are a few dust particles. I don't see any bubbles in the glass though. And the mount shows some minor wear, nothing out of the ordinary.

It comes with a scratched up original Pentax front lens cap, a generic rear one, and a 52mm uv filter to keep the front glass clean and scratch-free.

I can only provide crummy cell phone pictures to interested buyers at the moment, so PM me if you'd like to see them. I don't have my camera with me right now. Believe me, I'd like to upload pictures because it looks even better than my description. You're just going to have to trust me and my record here, and know that if it's not as described (and no new damage has been added to it, of course), I'll gladly take it back.

PM me if interested, thanks!

Honestly, I can't really. As stated in the description, I have nothing but a cell phone, and it doesn't show up (no macro mode or decent lighting). My description is very accurate though.

Bumping, and hoping to close a sale soon... need a PM back from a member. I should have my new K-x early next week to show some pictures, if it's still around by then (doubtful).

Here are pictures of the actual lens. As you can see on the rear, they are just very light rub marks, more like a "smudge". They are not scratches, and definitely not fungus/mold/anything else. Just very minor losses of coating. You can also see that the front is impeccable.





Bump!

Yes, I did! I've been too excited using it to post a thread about it, but I will soon.

All PMs read or replied, I'll post some sample shots from this lens in a little bit.

A few boring shots, all at f/1.2, at different ISO speeds. The bokeh really does impress on this lens:
