Lenses - suggested used prices


Link Posted 16/01/2017 - 17:16
HI all

I'm finding that I'm not using a couple of manual focus lens as much as I thought I might so intend to put them on the classifieds forum. Only thing is I'm not sure of a fair price. I'm keen to shift them to a good home and could just ask for offers but I'm interested in what the forum thinks would be a fair price for these:

Pentax-A 70-210mm f4.0 manual focus zoom
Pentax -A 50mm f1.8 manual focus prime

Both are in excellent condition with all caps but no boxes.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Best place is ebay. Search for "completed listings" so you can see what price sells and what doesnt. You may have to dig deeper into the lower priced listings that sold to see if they had declared faults that would lower its value.

Pentax didn't make a K-mount "A" series 50mm 1.8

Yep, the nearest would be f/1.7 or f/2.0. If it's truly a Pentax-A 50mm f/1.8 it would be an unrecorded priceless rarity worth thousands!
As to pricing, agree used eBay prices are a good guide.
