K 3.5/18 on German eBay, ending soon
Posted By: RKKS08, 07-06-2016, 12:23 AM

There is a SMC (K) 3.5/18 on German eBay, auction ending today in 5 hours. Presently the biddings are at only 100.

Delivery to Germany only, but this may be worth a discussion with the seller.

Seems to be in decent shape! I got this lens a few months ago as it was one of the few missing from my collection. Not the best lens by modern standards, but still fun to play with on the K-1.

Seems somewhat pointless on APS-C because all kit lenses provide the same FOV and aperture, with arguably better flare performance due to the passage of time and advances in coatings/optics... but based on your usage, do you see a place for it on full-frame/film? Or is it just as well to hunt down a 17mm/3.5 RMC Tokina, as I did?

I think there's little reason not to go for the 15-30mm these days. The added size is worth the boost in IQ on the K-1, in my opinion.

And the fact that it won't work on my ME and MX. There's a reason I said full frame/film.
