Nicholas Used Grade: 7/10 (Excellent, small signs of wear, in prefect working condition)
It feels really nice to use. It feels solid, and it’s all metal. The rubber focus ring and metal aperture ring have just the right knobby knurling to feel like a man’s lens.
Heck, if I had tried these Pentax SMC Lenses back in the 1980s when I switched to Nikon, I just might have gone to Pentax. These are much nicer than Canon’s FD lenses.
What’s hard to describe is just how nice, tight, precise and solid these feel. The focus is more damped (stiffer) than Nikon, but still easy to turn with just one fingertip.
