Another Pentax-A 3.5/15mm
Posted By: RKKS08, 10-20-2017, 03:30 AM

Another offer of the very rare ones for the legendary SMC Pentax-A 3.5/15mm.
It is on eBay Italy, delivery worldwide. but a hefty shipping fee (as nearly always with offers from Italy).

Even in the old days, this lens wasn't a best seller. So a rarity indeed.

But Pentax had the right attitude towards such exotic lenses in those days.

Yep 1981 was during the glory years of Pentax, when everyone knew the brand.

Now I was curious and searched.
I found 2 more of them, plus 2 with a modified mount for Nikon.
The better ones with original mount are:

Pentax 1:3,5 15mm SMC Objektiv | eBay
Pentax Asahi SMC 3.5/15 mm #5067226 Lens | eBay

But from the descriptions it seems they are either not in a near mint condition, or/and not absolutely complete (caps, box).
