p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Sourcing a Pentax 75 2.8 AL - Need help


I've been looking to pick up a Pentax 67 75mm f/2.8 AL ever since getting into the system. Of course, they are very rare and hard to come by. I had a couple of close misses and am hoping that maybe someone could here could be of assistance. I had friendly member on the getDPI forums suggest looking on the Yahoo Japan Auctions page. I've been watching and was able to find a couple of copies this week. Now I don't speak a lick of Japanese and I'm a long way from Japan so checking out the physical store or getting a solid translation of the webpage is nigh impossible.

If anyone on this board has some Japanese fluency or lives in Tokyo, I'd be very grateful if you can help a fellow FM'er out. If at all possible, I'd be willing to sweeten the deal for a helpful middleman that can get me one of these hard to acquire lenses. PM me if you think you can help.

FWIW, this may be in the wrong place so feel free to move it if necessary mods.

Let me see what I can do...

PS Only problem is that I can't receive PayPal payments. And even if I would, they refuse to transfer funds to my bank...

Contact Bellamy Hunt. www.japancamerahunter.com.

Thanks for bringing up Bellamy. If I'm unable to get help from anyone here, I will probably eventually turn to him. I know he has an excellent track record for sourcing hard to find items.

I'm guessing this is NOT the version you're looking for?

I've had three of these in the past. If you can find one the price is anywhere from $600-$750.

That's a 90mm, not a 75mm.

Checked eBay last night and was fortunate to find one BIN. That was probably my fastest mouse click ever...

So, how do you like your new 75/2.8 ASPH? It's one of my favorites in the 67 line.

Chris, thanks for sharing that link. Now, I have Bellamy on the lookout for some rare Pentax glass for me; SMC Pentax 28/2, and SMC Pentax-A* ED 135/1.8. There are a few -A* 135's currently available (eBay, KEH, and Japan), but they're all more spendy than I would like, especially the one Bellamy found in Japan; $4075.
