[SOLD] SMC M 85mm f2.0 Lens Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
SMC M 85mm f2.0 Lens

Asking Price
210 USD

Shipping Destinations
North America

Item Description
For sales is a nice SMC M series 85mm f2.0 lens.
This lens is a "sleeper" among the other legendary Pentax 85mm lenses, but it packs a punch in color rendering, contrast, and wonderful bokeh. It is lighter and more compact than similar Takumar glass and still shows wonderful sharpness even at the widest stop.

This copy is clean, the glass is free of scratches, marks or fungus, the blades look clean and show good snap when mounted on my K20D. The body is also very nice, with only some light brassing showing up on the aperture ring.

Comes with Pentax front and rear caps.

Original Poster
Test at 2.8

Someone asked if the test shots were wide open at f2.

They were not, they are at f2.8. Not a huge amount of difference, but I wanted to post that for full disclosure.

And also .... weekend bump!!!
