Great Lens - Free to a good home!

I have in my possession an almost legendary lens and one of my personal favourites! It's a Pentax-M 28mm F3.5, fantastic for landscapes, with clean and clear optics. Unfortunately the aperture pin has become detached (not broken, just come loose) and I cannot repair it, although I am sure someone can. To make it usable, it has been fixed at approx. F8 with a small dab of glue, this is easily removed and if someone can repair the aperture pin it will be as good as new. I have another (working) copy of this lens so I don't need the one with the detached pin.

Cosmetically it is superb, it takes great photos and it is free to a good home for someone who will pay the postage. Please PM me if interested, I would rather give it to someone who can repair it, but if no-one can I will let it go to a worthy new owner!

Thank you to AndrewA who gave me this lens back after selling his K-5!

You have to be quick on here!

The lens has found a deserving new home in the form of Andrew Currie (bwlchmawr), I can't wait to see some of Andrew's shots taken with it!

Well done Andrew

I recently bought one of these - it's superb - so far

I am sure andrew will also do it justice as you did David
K10D, K5 plus plenty of clueless enthusiasm.

Thanks David,

I'm so looking forward to using the lens. I've owned lots of 28mm mf lenses but never one as good as this one.

I may look into having it fixed if I can find a reliable repairer who can carry out the work.
Best wishes,

Andrew
