I have an A series 50mm f/1.7 lens for sale. Unlike most of these lenses, it does not suffer from the "gritty" aperture ring that is common with this model. It's in great shape mechanically, optically and cosmetically with the only flaw being a dent in the filter ring. I have bent it back to allow an empty filter ring (glass removed) to be fitted so that a hood or filters can then be fitted to the empty filter ring without any problem.

The lens performs superbly and is sharper than all other 50/1.7s I've tried, including other copies of the same lens that I have owned. It has minimal internal dust, no fungus and focuses smoothly.

This is a sample image taken wide open at f/1.7 (on the K-3):

I will post images in the next day or two when I have time.

Selling because I just have two many fast fifties.

I will be over in the UK for a few days and therefore able to post on Friday the 3rd of August. Payment by bank transfer (preferred) or Paypal, must be received by mid-day on Thursday the 2nd at the latest because if the lens doesn't sell then I won't be taking it with me. Price is 39 posted to the UK.

Please PM me any questions.

Thanks
