hi all

The ebay seller says it has "Signs of wear. Dust, dirt in the lens system." and when i asked them about how ...much dirty it is, they replied:
For analog cameras, no problem.
With digital cameras could be something to see.

I cant understand if it is usable or not Would it shoot clear photos ?

please advice i urgently need your assistance

It doesn't sound as though it's worth taking the chance. If it's a Pentax SMC 50mm f1.7 then these often come up in good condition (clean optics) for quite low prices. There are several Camera shops that have them for around 30, and on Ebay they will often be found with an old M camera body for 15-30.

Leave it and wait for another one - they're always coming up
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass
