Here we have a Pentax zoom lens, the SMC Pentax-M Zoom 40-80mm F/2.8-4 macro focusing zoom lens in K mount with lens cap and rear cap. It is in great shape and is fully functional.
This lens is in very good condition both cosmetically and mechanically. There is a minor ding to the filter threads that makes threading filters on a bit tricky, but the lens will ship with a filter threaded to demonstrate that the threads are not damaged beyond reason.
The glass elements are free of fungus, balsam separation, haze, scratches, and cleaning marks. The aperture blades are free of oil and actuate perfectly. The focus ring spins nicely, and the aperture ring clicks into its detents with precision. The zoom ring rotates beautifully and the action is smooth and nice. The macro focusing mode works as it should.
This zoom lens offers incredible sharpness when stopped down, and produces amazing bokeh and subject isolation when shot wide open. The fast aperture allows for excellent low-light capability, and the lens is a master at available-light portraiture.
Naturally able to mount to any K mount camera, such as those made by Pentax (K1000, ME, LX, etc.), Practica, etc., this lens can also be easily adapted to modern digital cameras through the use of inexpensive adapters. If you'd like to know if this lens will work with your camera or you'd like a recommended adapter, contact me and I will happily help.

Returns & exchanges
We hope to describe our items accurately and make swift, pleasant transactions. Problems do happen, though, so if any items are damaged in shipping we will politely ask for a photo of the damage and then refund the buyer. If a buyer for any reason wishes to return an item we will ask for the item to be sent back and the refund will be issued immediately.
If a buyer decides to cancel their order before the item has shipped there will be a 10% restocking fee deducted from the refund. This pays for time, fees, and hassle incurred when a shopper changes their mind after purchase due to no fault of the shop.
