Hey, who is shooting with Pentax? I recently uncovered a lens I am fairly sure works with Pentax cameras. 135mm 2.8, manual all the way. It's dusty but should work (no caps). If it works I'll let it go for a song.

it's an off brand and dusty, but if it works and you want it I can't see asking more then $25 for it, better yet, contribute $25 to the DPG fund. I'll bring it to the next meeting and let y'all look at it and decide if its worth it.

Do you know what brand it is?
Also, do you know if it is bayonet or screw mount?

bayonet, and I think the brand is Mirage. This lens is probably about, erm... fifteen years old, photo quality was fine when I used it. All the parts seem to move ok. It was used on a K100 (my first ever SLR). There is a fair bit of glass in this thing and it's metal not plastic

Thanks Edge,
I just won an auction for a Asahi Pentax 50mm SMC F/1.7 a couple minutes ago, so I won't be buying any more lenses anytime soon. Hopefully it will work for sweetlake.

I'll donate some $ to you or the group. We could pass it around the pentaxians, there are a growing number.

Edge, I'll get the 25 bucks to you or the guild. In the mean time if you can get the lens to Shawn or another DPG pentaxian I'd like to share.

That's cool, I'll bring it to the meeting and whoever wants to take it on loan can do so. If for some reason it turns out to be non functional I'll reimburse you.
