[SOLD] Minty SMC Pentax-F 50mm f/1.7 Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Minty SMC Pentax-F 50mm f/1.7

Asking Price
US $200+paypal fee

Shipping Destinations
U.S, U.K, Canada, Australia

Item Description
A Pentax F 50mm 1.7 prime in superb optical, mechanical and cosmetic condition. (I'm not sure I should sell it, but I've recently added a Super Tak 50mm 1.4 to my Takumar 55mm 1.8, and I think they are enough for me, since I very rarely shoot action or events to need AF.)

The lens looks like new, with no marks on the body. Mechanically flawless. The glass is very clean, with no scratches, no fungus, no internal dust, no blemishes except a thin, barely visible semi-circle of what appears to be tiny coating discoloration points around the back element. (They are on the surface of the back element, not within the glass.) So tiny, in fact, that I couldn't photograph them--I would have had to put my macro tubes on to capture them. They cannot be seen in natural light; one has to carefully look at the lens with the back element against a lamp. A factory imperfection, I suppose, which doesn't affect image quality at all.

The lens comes with a Pentax rear cap and a Hoya 49mm UV filter. (No front cap, unfortunately.)

Asking US $200+ 4% paypal fee.
