Item Description

I don't need to say anything about the optical quality of this lens. Read the lens reviews, they cover it. This copy happens to be made in Japan, though I have a non-Japan one and I can't see any differences. The only problem with these lenses is two plastic welds can break under the aperture ring, causing it to jam. I wrote an article about the problem and fix here. But if you purchase this lens, you don't need to worry about plastic welds. I've already replaced them with screws.

There are no optical or functional issues with the lens. It focuses smoothly all the way to infinity. The aperture ring works fine on or off the A position. The lens comes with the generic caps pictured. These photos are half-size; larger versions are in this album: Picasa Web Albums - David - SMC Pentax-A ...

Proof of screw replacement!
