Bought a few items recently with the intention of keep hold of them but new lens fund means a few things have to go and I'm looking to sell one of the lenses but unsure what to advertise it at price wise. When I checked eBay they're going for up to 112 but didn't know if that was a realistic price or if it was over the top and the 'true' used price is a bit less?

It is a Pentax-M SMC 35mm f2.8

Pics of actual lens:

Obviously the aperture is snappy, focus is smooth, no fungus and complete with original caps front and rear

Thanks

Are you sure the aperture is snappy? A sticky aperture is a common fault with this lens.

Price wise I would think 50 would be the limit for a perfect example.

I think Algi's right - Mint, cased, boxed you might get 10 to 20 more, but 40 to 50 is what I'd expect for a nice condition copy

A lot of sellers on ebay do try it on and it's not just on photographic gear. Some amazing prices are being asked for things like hard drives.
