Item Description
Got this lens for a friend, but after some trial, he decided to go w/ an AF one I don't need this one in my collection, and it'd be a waste if just let it rest in my dry cabinet.

This is another gem lens by Pentax. It's rated as one of the best 24mm lens made by Pentax. It's the K version which directly inherited its predecessor, the wonderful M42 version S-M-C Takumar 24/3.5. Both lenses have the same optical design, and the K24/3.5 is almost as well made as the Takumar version. This F3.5 version is even slightly better built than the later K/A F2.8 versions (which are already very well made, far better than current auto focus lenses). The K 24/3.5 has a 58mm front thread size instead of 52mm on the K/A F2.8 versions.

This selling copy is in excellent plus condition w/ perfect glass, only minor sign on the lens barrel (the aperture ring). Focusing is silky smooth, aperture ring clicks in position nice and sound. Aperture blades are clean and dry, glass is free from scratch/fog/fungus. It comes w/ matching Pentax front and rear caps, and an early Asahi Pentax hard lens case (which shows sign of age, but still looks great, protects the lens well).

I haven't seen this lens ever sold here at this forum or even on eBay. The SMC Takumar version sometimes sold for over $200usd. So I'll start from $195usd and see how.

Here is the actual lens selling:
