[SOLD] FS: Pentax-A 50mm f/2 and Pentax-M 35mm f/2.8 (there's a catch...)

For sale are a Pentax-A 50mm f/2 and a Pentax-M 35mm f/2.8. Both are in good cosmetic condition and come with rear caps and a front filter. The 50mm comes with a generic UV filter and the 35mm comes with a Hoya skylight 1B filter. The 50mm has a stiff aperture ring.

Pentax-A 50mm f/2 - $15 shipped
Pentax-M 35mm f/2.8 - $30 shipped

The catch is that both have slow aperture blades, especially the 35mm. You can try cleaning it if you know how. Also, if you have the tools to cut the aperture pin in the back, these lenses can be used in stop down mode like an M42 lens, but without the need for an M42 to K-mount adapter.

Here's a cheap way to get a pretty good 35mm lens if you don't mind the extra work.

I'm selling these lenses as-is so, sorry, no returns. I take non-creditcard Paypal or money orders.

why not clean the aperture blades. they are in a selfcontained module. these small primes are fairly easy to access the guts.

I've taken apart a few lenses, and I haven't had the best luck of putting them all back together. Do you have a link to a tutorial or guide?

I'm interested if you still would like to sell them. I'll take them both (mainly interested in the 35mm but I wouldn't mind tinkering with the 50mm). Thanks.
