My lovely condition Soft Focus 85mm from the F series is now up for sale.

I won't go into tall the details of how it operates - these can be found over on the US Forum..
https://www.pentaxforums.com/lensreviews/SMC-Pentax-F-85mm-F2.8-Soft-Lens.html

Cosmetically and Optically it is excellent, everything functions as it should - it is sharp (at the right apertures) and soft (at the right apertures), a real pleasure














Here are a few examples of what it does:











Price: £225 inc P&P.

I've obtained an original Pentax Metal hood (MH-RB52) to go with this little beauty.

If you want to know a little more about this lens in use take a look at the views and images from NorhtCoastGreg...

Nice (and unique lens) - I just canít see myself doing it justice! Nice price too.

I might have picked this up if I had remembered in good time

One of those lenses that I've never tried out.

That's a good price Bruce, think you'll enjoy it - did you get the metal hood with it?

Lennybloke's lens arrived yesterday and I have been experimenting in the house, the sweet spot to me is f4 and I am looking forward to some autumn colour shots outside but in the meantime here are a couple:




I love that to get this effect I don't have to mess around in lightroom or photoshop, minimal processing required.
