For Sale: Kiron 105/2.8 macro PKA
Listed: 12-02-2015, 01:39 PM Total Price: 225 Currency: USD Item Location: United States City or State: Spring Green, WI Shipping Destinations: Continental U.S. Only 

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.

thru-lens at f/11

Hey, ebahle.

I noticed a couple specks in there, but then I got a thru-lens image with my M 50/4 at f/11. The M 50/4 has a speck of something that shows up at f/11, and rather than explain where that was, I used spot removal in LR to negate it. But that left more than a few dust specks in the A 50/1.4 itself. (That 50/4 is one sharp lens. . . .)

Oh--the finger-things on the right side are tree branches. I shot this with the lens pointing out a north window. (I'm pretty sure it was far enough away from the window that none of the spots on the window showed up.)

Anyway, below is the dust image.

Bump for the Kiron: I have one just like it, and recommend it highly. It's an excellent lens, optically a match for modern macro lenses, and with awesome build quality.

Now I wonder if I should sell it at all. . . .

demondata's right, though: this lens looks great, feels great, and it's great optically, too.

Bump. . . .
