Item Description

Photos of equipment to follow, along with samples from equipment. Descriptions and prices below to start with:

Pentax FA 77mm Limited: $400 (sold)

Near mint condition, excellent focus, includes leather pouch. If you own Pentax you should own this classic, beautiful optic.

Pentax DA 15mm Limited: $225 (sold)

Near mint condition, includes leather pouch. I created the "the Da 15 limited controls my mind" thread in this forum with this lens. It's tiny, sharp, brilliant color and original starburst ability. If you shoot a cropped Pentax body this gives you a wide-angle option with almost no extra weight/space in your bag, and one of the best WA options you have in this or any mount.

Pentax DA 35mm Macro Limited: $200 (sold)

Near mint, some folks like Mike Johnston (online photographer) thinks this is the best-rendering lens for Pentax mount. Comes with leather pouch.

I addition to full macro, it's a great walkabout d-normal, incredible contrast color and sharpness - Check my threads in his forum with the DA 35ltd : Steampunk Dreams... -

Cosina 55mm f/1.2: $175 (sold)

A f1.2 lens, Cosina-made, almost mint. Rare and getting more rare every year. Perfect optics, heavy, smooth manual focus throw, and can create OOF bokeh affects unlike anything I've ever shot.

Lester Dine 100 f/2.8 macro: $100 (sold)

The original dentist-office macro, unused when I bought it, still near-mint, nice looking lens. Incredibly sharp, super smooth manual focus, this is another classic lens that's hard to find now. Can be used as a top-tier street or portrait lens as well.

Pentax M 85mm f/2: $100 (sold)

A small, heavy, near-perfect optic in sharpness and bokeh. I have always loved the way this lens renders - basically like a 77ltd, but as a manual-focus M. Another rare optic. This is in excellent condition.

Pentax FA 50 f/1.7: $100

The original FA 50 1.7, a superior 50 that was sharper, better than the Canon or Nikon equivalents (I know, I shot all three at the same time )
If you want a solidly built Pentax FA classic normal for FF or aps-c, this.

Pentax K20D with used-once grip: $100

In great condition. If you need a 2nd body or want to get someone you know into 'real' (ie not phone photography, this is your body. I'll include a basically new grip, extra battery, small side bag to hold it, charger, manual.

Paypal only, you pay paypal fees + shipping.

What's left is the K20D? That was fast,

If you'd rather sell it all to one guy, put me on top of the list

(No harm in trying)

Isn't the DA 35/2.8 Ltd. still available? Great lens.

I'm glad someone removed the temptation of the 77/1.8. (Though I'm pretty happy with my DA 70 and K 85/1.8. . . .)

This is perhaps the most remarkable listing I've seen here in the PF Marketplace. . . .

I knew I should've jumped on the 77ltd as soon as I saw it.

It controls my mind as you know, and tells me it wants to go to someone who will use it more than I have in the last 5 years

Truth is I'm shooting so much less these days, life is too busy. I may take up the hobby again with gusto when my boys are a bit older, work calms down, family needs stabilize, etc.

To all - I'll get back to you with shipping cost, we'll do paypal and you should have your item shipped prob by tomorrow.

35 LTD and K20D still available.
