[SOLD] PENTAX-F 50MM f/1.7 Excellent + Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
PENTAX-F 50MM f/1.7 Excellent +

Asking Price
$170 US.

Item Description

This is a beautiful example of the PENTAX-F 1:1.7 50mm auto-focus lens. I've listed the condition as merely "Excellent" because if you look very closely, you can see some minor scuffs which show it's been used, but it's in truly great shape. The glass is flawless and the aperture is clean, dry and snappy. The autofocus functions perfectly, and the is probably my fastest focusing lens on the K-7 (owing to the fast aperture). While manually focusing, you can hear a clicking from the turning of the AF drivetrain, but I believe this is normal since this lens lacks quickshift.

The filter ring on these lenses is notorious for breaking... this one's in perfect condition, and is protected with by a filter with the glass removed to reinforce the front of the lens - you could remove this, but if you search around, you'll find many copies of this lens with broken fronts, so that's why I put it on.

Lens includes:
  • Original front cap.
  • Generic rear cap.
  • Filter ring with no glass for front thread protection.

Some more shots (view this gallery for bigger versions)...

This looks like a very good example of an excellent lens. I love mine, which is not nearly as nice looking.

Considering the FA50/1.4 increased much recently, I would say this is a good choice if someone is looking for a fast 50mm lens.

I'm actually pondering selling my FA50/1.4 to pick this one up.
