Items to sell/buy/trade: SMC Pentax-M 28mm f3.5

Prices: 59

Location: West of Charlotte, NC

Ships to: CONUS

Description: If you don't own this little classic, you need it. Small, light, solidly built. Tack sharp (many consider this lens to be sharper than the f2.8 version), beautiful color rendition. There is great info in the reviews section on Pentaxforums.

This copy has average cosmetic wear for its age, visible on the aperture dial in the images. The mount shows some signs of use, but not much. The glass looks terrific, with no fungus, coating separation or scratches on the front or rear elements. There is almost certainly some internal dust, but nothing that would impact image quality, and it's really hard to see, even harder to photograph. The diaphragm is oil-free front and rear, and is snappy in operation. Comes with the correct OE Pentax front and rear caps.

There is some scarring of the front rim of the lens. I do not see a discernible dent, and the filter threads look good, but it is a little finicky to thread a filter on, but it will thread all the way on. Focusing is generally smooth, but there is a spot in the middle of the focus throw where you hit some resistance. I had forgotten about it until I checked the lens out to list it for sale, because I really didn't notice when shooting with it.

Please ask any questions you may have before buying. If any of the issues I mention are a deal-breaker, please do not buy the lens.
