eBay M 50mm f/4 Macro w/ reverse adapter $185 BIN.

I think this is about as good as it gets for vintage Pentax Macro.

(Just looked - no financial interest)

Can anyone recommend a decent and cheap, under $100 used (if that exists) macro lens for the k10D?

I need to shoot some jewelry.

Thanks!

that's close to 200 for a 50mm macro manual focus. not the best price IMO. I was watching a lot of M42 lens.
1 X 50mm f/1.4
1 X 50mm f/4 macro
1 X 28 f/2.8 (not sure on this, could be f/3.5).

it ended @ 200 shipped and i didn't even bother (1 i don't need the macro and 28mm, 2 I think it's too high, i was thinking of 150 lol)

so 200 for just the macro is a no go for me (especially the M model, it's essentially the same as M42 since you don't even get aperture control).
