For Sale: Kiron 105/2.8 macro PKA
Listed: 12-02-2015, 01:39 PM

Price drop; now $240 $225. . . .

I just got a Pentax A 100/2.8 macro, so this Kiron really needs to go. I posted in the Marketplace back in December 2015 along with some other items, sold everything but the Kiron, and have recently reinstated the listing in hopes of moving the Kiron. It's also listed locally, so don't hesitate too long. . . .

Kiron 105/2.8 macro, P/KA (aka, the "Lester Dine" lens): This was one of the first lenses I bought for my K-7; I got it through the forum back in 2010. It's a sharp, gorgeous lens. It's got a P/KA mount, which is harder to find than the plain K mount, so it carries all the benefits of an A-series lens on Pentax DSLRs--and it will work well with full-frame, too! It's in excellent condition: the glass is great, the barrel's clean, and the aperture blades are snappy and oil-free. It's got a wonderfully solid feel to it, and the manual focusing and aperture rings move precisely and smoothly. Most of the markings on the lens are excellent, but there are bits of missing ink lettering around the front of the lens, just inboard of the retractable lens shade. Comes with both caps (front cap's a Vivitar).

The price of $270 $255 $240 $225 includes USPS Priority Mail in the contiguous US.

Payment via PayPal (I'll handle the fees).

I try to describe equipment as it is, but doesn't mean I'll have covered everything about the item. If you have any question about something I haven't mentioned, let me know.

Returns accepted within three days of receipt if not as described; please PM first. Full refund (so long, of course, the lens is returned in the same condition as when it shipped); buyer pays for return shipping.

If interested, please send me a private message.

Kiron 105 macro

Just imagine this Kiron mounted on a Pentax full-frame DSLR. . . .

And it's still here, waiting for someone to give it a new home. . . .

bump

Hello, folks. It's the Kiron here. I'm still looking for a new macro photographer. Preferably someone who likes to photograph things other than lichens and dead birds. Can you imagine what life is like for me here in southern Wisconsin?

Please, please give me a new home. . . .

Indignity of indignities! Now he's talking of photographing lichens on the roof, lichens that get nutrients from . . . bat pee! I mean, who wants to get near those lichens! It's downright humiliating!

And what if a bat pees on me while we're up there? Or gets in my hair? (Okay, okay . . . I don't have any hair. I don't even have a toupee. . . .)

Is somebody reading this? RESCUE ME!

Besides, my current owner is lowering my price five whole dollars! Really! You and I both know I'm worth more than $315 (shipping included), but that's what he wants for me now.

Please, someone pay the ransom money. . . .

price reduced

Bump. . . .

This listing for the Kiron 105/2.8 macro PKA has been reinstated. The messages previous to this one are old, largely about other items.

I've also lowered the price to $255, which includes free Priority Mail shipping in the contiguous US.

Send me a PM if you're interested!

Thanks, niceshot!

Was that image made at f 2.8? Even stopped down, the eight blades of the aperture do a really nice job smoothing things out.

I pretty much had decided to keep the Kiron . . . until the A 100/2.8 macro showed up. I've got to say, I like the damping on the Kiron's focus ring better than that on the Pentax. The Pentax isn't bad at all, but there's just a little more on the Kiron, and it's just right, in my opinion.

Josť Manuel, I'm going to try to attach a couple more images of the Kiron so you can see more particulars. . . .

Hope these let you get a better idea of the lens!
