I have been looking to buy a prime lens to try and have been offered this one for 10. Looks very clean with no fungus. Everyone says it will work with my K-r and I know its manual focus. Is it worth a punt.

Thanks

Yes - especially for 10!! Some of the other 50s are slightly better, but that lens is worth 25 easily, and is still very good.

For 10, snatch it up. It is capable of being an excellent lens and could be ideal for portraits.
Best regards, John

10 for any clean Pentax prime has to be a bargain
No matter how many lenses I have owned - I have always needed just one more

Well I now own a prime. Picked it up late last night so not much chance to try it yet. Its very clean with both caps and a couple of test shots seem to be OK. I now need to get to grips with manual focus and no zoom.

Thank for all the advice.

Although these are throw away money they are really well made I have one and paid 30 - it is minty and it's a good portrait lens but also has a nice smooth focus throw for video.

10 is unbelievable value even if you sell it on.
