Pentax SMC A 200mm f4

Lovely condition, with integral hood, caps and box. Optically superb, a small amount of dust and a few tiny coating marks (hardly visible) - getting more and more difficult to find especially in such good condition.










Price 129

Here's a couple of shots taken with it..

first at f4.0:


then at f8.0:


Slightly soft at maximum aperture, but still better than most, a bit of purple fringing removed easily in LightRoom

You can see the detail better if you click on them for the bigger picture !

Tried it with a Jessops 31mm auto extension tube the other day - makes for a long, shakey combination but not bad at pseudo macro.....

Still available by the way - reasonable offers will be considered

Wow, now those are the kind of photos to demonstrate how good this lens can be, (in the right hands), lovely images

Thank you, it is a superb lens - very under-rated generally.

I'm selling it because I have two copies (one will stay in the collection) plus a K200/2.5 on the way. Seems nobody is into the A series lenses at present
