beautiful picture, Pentaxor. I hope to take pictures like that some day. I'm glad that I was able to get some nice lenses to help, but now to figure out how to use them correctly - that's where the real work for me comes in.

The bad news: you overpaid about US$22+ for the tubes. They're often available on the bay for around US$6-8, including shipping.

The good news: you underpaid by several hundred bucks for the lenses. I'm quite jealous.

Not if they are the Pentax extension tube sets, the manual set goes for around 40 and the auto around 75. Phil

They are the Pentax manual set... and everything is mint condition - minus one rear lens cap.

Now if only my camera would arrive (should be here tomorrow)... I can't wait to start taking pictures with these lenses!

And if you ever pick up a K-mount film body, all of those lenses will feel right at home. This was taken with the 55/1.8 on the original film KX and scanned to digital.


Pentax KX, Pentax-K 55/1.8, Ektar 100

I really like the lens. Here are a few from the K10D...
