I do my best to care for my gear and I’m very selective if and when purchasing used gear. Much of what you see has little use in recent years. The lenses function perfectly, feature smooth action… wear only-no defects… no haze or fungus… a little dust perhaps, noticeable under bright light and close examination—certainly nothing that affects image quality. Please see the pictures, read each item’s listing carefully for additional information, and send me a private message if you are interested in purchasing anything. This is busy time of year for many, including myself, but I’ll respond to messages as quickly as I can and I will ship items out the same or next business day once I have received payment.

Pentax FA 28mm f/2.8 (Item #4 in pictures)
Made in Japan.
Includes front and rear caps, an aftermarket rubber lens hood (not pictured), and a Lowepro zippered case with belt attachment (not pictured). I am not certain that either lens cap is original to this lens. Includes the original box as well, which shows quite a bit of wear.
I purchased this lens used several years ago and have captured some of my all-time favorite images with it. This is a wonderful, vastly underrated lens that I would never think of leaving home without. Plenty sharp for everyday use, and stunningly so when stopped down to f8 or above. A “normal” lens on APS-C.
Good to Excellent condition.

Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 ED AS IF UMC (Item #5 in pictures)
Made in Korea
Includes front and rear caps, plus the original pouch which is partially pictured, and the original box and paperwork (not pictured). I’m not sure if this is the original rear cap, but I suspect it is. After reading some grumblings about quality control I purchased two new copies of this lens and compared them side by side. I’m not sure that there was really any difference between them, but I ended up keeping this one. It’s in Like New condition and it’s a quality lens capable of some very high quality images. Images are very sharp from corner to corner.

*Important Note: This is a manual focus lens.

Vivitar Series 1 105mm f/2.5 1:1 Macro Telephoto (Item #6 in pictures)
Made in Taiwan
Includes front and rear caps, plus the original case. I believe this is the original rear cap, although I am not 100% certain. I purchased it used several years ago here in the marketplace for much more money. I have used it extremely sparingly, and this copy is in uber-pristine condition. Even the case, which is made of leather, is in pristine condition (it even smells new). The lens is a masterpiece for macro work--famous for its buttery smooth bokeh and gorgeous color rendition--and the build quality is something to behold. Like New ~ Excellent condition.

*Important Note: This is a manual focus lens.
