90mm macro lens for EU

I don't usually do that, but I thought that it could interest some people. A nice macro lens for less than 100$... Too bad I live in NA.

I don't know the seller and don't mean to spam. I hope nobody is offended!

As a matter of fact there are two old top (*) macro (1:1) lenses going on for K-mount at this time: a 90mm 1:2.8 Panagor and a 90mm 1:2.5 Soligor. The latter even seems to have the A-position on its apeture ring.

(*) According to the lens review DB here.

Two 100mm 1:3.5 Cosina macros (1:2) currently listed on The one closing later would seem to be NIB with the matched 1:1 lens. Both sellers apparently willing to ship outside UK.

These should be the pretty highly regarded "plastic fantastic" / bargain macros : Cosina 100mm F1:3,5 MC Makro Lens Reviews - Pentax Third-Party Lens Review Database and Cosina AF 100mm f/3.5 macro (Pentax) - Review / Lab Test Report

I have this as the MF version, branded Promaster: ABSFAB for US$ 82 (NIB with the 1:1 adapter).
