This is a vintage ASAHI PENTAX SMC 200mm f4 prime lens with PK (Pentax) mount.
It is specifically an SMC PENTAX-M 1:4 200mm telephoto lens which is in great condition and creates amazing photos. The optics are excellent with no scratches and there is no sign of fungus or haze and just a few little specks of dust.
The exterior is in great condition with a usage marks (mostly on the aperture ring - see photos) but there are no dings or damage. The focus action is smooth and fluid and the aperture ring clicks nicely. The built-in metal hood pulls out and retracts just as it should and it still has the gold quality assurance pass sticker on it! It is a very solid, metal and glass lens weighing 410g.
This 200mm prime lens was first produced in 1977 and is getting quite rare now. The serial no. of this lens is: 7342883. It comes with its original plastic front lens cap emblazoned with the Pentax logo and the rear lens cap is the original cap with the words "ASAHI OPT. CO. JAPAN" stamped on it. Neither front or rear caps are damaged but they do show signs of wear (see photos).
I have used this lens on my Micro 4/3 camera and it is fantastic. Bokeh is excellent and it's very sharp. Using the correct adapters, you can use this lens on a multitude of modern cameras - often offering excellent images at the fraction of the price of many modern lenses.
This SMC PENTAX-M 1:4 200mm lens will be sent well packed and promptly. My postage charges are very fair and I do not make money on shipping. On valuable items such as this I only offer certified/tracked (Certificado) postage to ensure that you receive the item purchased.
I am new to Etsy after having been a seller on eBay (and before that Yahoo Auctions) for many years with a 100% rating of well over 2000 sales. I specialise in cameras, camera lenses and filters and other camera gear, but I will also add other vintage items over time too. Thank you for looking :-)
