Serial Number


Compatibility & Other Notes(A detailed description of this particular lens can be found below, please scroll down.)

We often receive questions asking about A* lenses and which bodies they work with. With this in mind we have added this section to our A* series lens auctions.

The A* series lenses are manual focus (MF) lenses that are compatible with all Pentax K-Mount bodies. They work perfectly on both K-Mount film and digital SLR bodies.

Perhaps the best way to think of Pentax's A* series lenses is that they work like auto focus lenses that have been set to manual focus mode. Everything is automatic except the focus. You use these lenses exactly the same way as all other K-Mount lenses, just the focusing needs to be done manually.

The A* series lenses are among the finest that Pentax has ever made. Construction quality is excellent and the optics are superb. This lens produces stunning photos, you will not be disappointed!

Item Description

Excellent! No scratches, haze, fungus, cleaning marks. There are no problems with this lens.


Perfect! Manual focus is smooth throughout the focus range. The aperture ring clicks cleanly from stop to stop. The aperture blades are clean, oil-free, and snappy. There are no problems with this lens.

Lens Mount

Excellent! There is no wear visible on the mount. There is a close-up photograph of the mount included with this listing's photos.

Barrel Cosmetics

Very Good. There are some cosmetic marks in the barrel paint that have been touched up with paint, and there are some other cosmetic marks from normal use. No areas of paint removal or paint discoloration. There is a chip in the front filter mounting ring but this has not affected the lens or filter in any way, filters still thread without any problems. Large and detailed photos are included with this listing, please examine them carefully to see the exact condition of this lens.

Built-in Hood Cosmetics

Same cosmetic condition as the barrel. The hood extends and retracts smoothly.

Tripod Foot Cosmetics

Very Good. There are cosmetic marks from use but no damage or problems. No problems with the mounting threads.
