Item Description
Pentax F 50mm f/1.7 lens in excellent condition. Comes with front and rear caps. This lens takes very nice pictures. The photos it takes are just as nice as the FA 50/1.7 I have - there are very subtle differences, but I can't decide which as better. The only noticeable difference is that, as you may know, the F lens makes a little more noise focusing, and therefore it costs a bit less than the FA version.

I don't see any flaws on this lens, except a small scratch on the bottom near the serial number and some minor rub marks just inside the filter threads (likely from putting the front lens cap on and off - hard to even see in the pictures). The glass, blades, and everything else are great.

One of the great benefits of this lens (and the FA50/1.7) is that, unlike the 1.4 version, it doesn't require the use of a hood because the element is recessed. This means you can easily stick it in your pocket or on your belt (with an S 70-70 case), which I often do!

Yes, I would have kept it if I didn't also have the FA50/1.7.
