What type of lens is this?

I notice this on ebay, couldn't make out what kind of lenses they are. Any idea.

PENTAX AF TELEPHOTO AND WIDE ANGLE LENS - SET OF 2

Looks like auxiliary telephoto and wideangle attachments for Pentax compacts. This even includes additional opticfal frame finders (or frames that go in front of the viewfinder). Not interesting for DSLR users.

Asahiflex is correct.

AFAIK Pentax has never made an enlarger lens.

I agree. There ARE auxiliary lenses that work well. Video shooters use them all the time. However...the good ones aren't any cheaper than buying a good lens. The only difference is that the adapters will work with zooms. Here's a link: Lens Attachments
