I have 2 copies of this early K mount oddity from Pentax - pointless keeping both so I'll offer one for sale.

This copy is in very good condition - beautifully smooth focus, snappy, clean & responsive aperture, very good coatings (front and rear) - slight dust inside (typical for age) - fairly good cosmetically (some silvering on the underneath of the aperture ring) - not a "collectors copy" but a great workhorse.

If you are interested I can add some photos. I've looked around at pricing and think this is lower than the poorer condition copies normally go for....

Price: £150 inc P&P (No Offers)

UK Only, Bank Transfer, PayPal Gift, Cheque or Cash on collection, inspection welcome.

One of my favourite lenses at a good price. Someone should snap this up!

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

...There are some very slight marks on the front coating (difficult to see in most lights) and some "cleaning marks" around the perimeter of the lens (as is the case with my other copy I've just discovered) - only fair to mention this, but they are pretty common and don't detract from it's picture taking abilities

+1 An unusual FL. You will feel like a real pro taking pictures with this classic.

...and +1 again.

And not only for a K-1.....this focal length makes it a good standard lens on APS-C.

I got my hands on this sooner than I'd expected after some friends of my wife decided to come over for a visit and kindly brought it over for me. It's in beautiful condition, works perfectly and seems nice and sharp even wide open. Thanks John for another flawless transaction.
