Item Description
My initial sale thread was quite messy due to too many items squeezed into one listing. Now, when the majority of main items are sold, I can post the leftovers with more details and pictures.


FA*300/4.5 IF ED -SOLD

I deliberately chose FA*300 over DA*300 for a few reasons. Along with the lens Iíll include suitable Canon lens tripod mount leg, which is missing from FA*300/4.5 design. The lens condition is very good. Glass is clean with no flaws. There are a few minor scuffs on the lens body, caused mainly by mentioned above tripod mount leg, but that is the price to pay for use of tripod with this lens. And it is well known that all FA* lenses silver paint was always quite vulnerable. The optics is what makes FA* lenses the real gems. And it is excellent.
Original caps, hood, and pouch are also included.













Sigma APO 1.4x EX TC (non DG) - $125

This is FF capable 1.4x TC. If you are interested in FA*300, I would strongly recommend getting Sigma 1.4x EX AF too.
I used to have both DG and non-DG EX versions. My personal choice was EX non-DG because images taken with it were always brighter and AF a bit snappier. I think that DG coating and slightly different design affected general light transmittance of DG TC.





Below is quick and dirty sample shot: handheld, indoor, ISO 500, 1/250 shutter speed (IBIS worked great with this pair), approx. 5 yards/5 meters distance - taken with very old K-5 and FA*300/4.5 plus Sigma 1.4x EX AF TC. The AF was reliable at f/5.6-f/8. No sharpness and contrast corrections were applied. I just adjusted exposure and tweaked highlights a bit. As you can see even tiniest single fibers are crispy and clearly visible. And this is on ancient 16MP K-5! To my surprise the combo was able to AF even at f/16 (wow, I even did not know that myself). Donít pay attention to year 2010 date; it is screwed, I know. The camera was not used for about 4-5 years.






Sigma 8-16/4.5-5.6 DC HSM - SOLD

Very good copy!
I acquired this lens many years ago directly from Sigma Photo USA as refurbished item and paid quite high price for it. It appeared of very good quality as the most of refurbished lenses usually were there. I sold my Sigma 10-20/4-5.6 immediately after trying this Sigma 8-16. The UWA coverage is simply unbelievable. Includes box and all original caps.
There is also a BIG bonus. Sigma 8-16 is quite usable on FF body at FL 15-16mm.





Tamron SP AF XR Di LD (IF) 28-75/2.8 Macro + Box and all originals. SOLD


Bought it new and always really liked my copy. This lens along with following DA 16-45/4 substituted very nicely for 18-55mm kit lens. It works also very nicely for the close-up shots. Founder of LensRentals and brilliant photography author Roger Cicala calls this lens the one of the best bargain standard range zoom with great IQ:
Lens Rentals | Blog





Pentax-DA 16-45/4 ED AL + Box and all original caps. SOLD

This is very good, but very underestimated Pentax lens with great IQ and FL coverage.





Pentax-DA 15/4 Ltd. (green band) + original caps and pouch - SOLD

There are a few scuffs and abrasion marks on black anodized front cap. But the glass and the rest of the lens are flawless. I canít say for sure, but I read somewhere that legendary sun-stars are better with this older (green band) version.





Tamron SP Di AF 90/2.8 Macro (1:1) + Box and all original caps. SOLD

This is very sharp 1:1 Macro and Portraiture lens.
Potential buyer may claim any macro accessory from the list below for free.





Rokinon 8/3.5 Fish-Eye CS (manual focus) + Box and all originals. SOLD

Just very good purchased new and rarely used ultimate 8mm fish-eye.





Pentax-F 1.7x AF Adapter + Box and all originals. SOLD

This is legendary Pentax self-autofocusing 1.7x adapter. Makes manual lenses able to AF.





CAMERAS:





Pentax K-01 (shutter count only 754) + Box and all originals. SOLD


Pentax K-5 IIs (2,948 shutter count). SOLD


Pentax K-5: shutter count is 70,821 SOLD

Yeah, I know ☺. It was my main birding camera for a few years before K-3. The shutter clicks are still counting: I make all my sales pictures here with it. Will sell it for cheap at the end. Would make nice UV camera for example. All originals: box, charger, genuine battery, etc. are included.



ACCESSORIES:

You may claim any one of these items for free with purchase of the Tamron 90/2.8 Macro





K-mount to Pentax 67 adapter Ė you may claim it for free with any purchase above.

Wired Remote (3rd party) - $35
Worked for me as a charm.

K-mount bellows (3rd party) - $35

APK Kenko Auto Extension Tube - $35
There are no electrical contacts and AF drive, but Aperture control.

Genuine Asahi Pentax Extension Tube K set - $20

This genuine Asahi/Pentax item is more like of sentimental or collectible value, because Auto Kenko tubes are definitely better. However these pieces, I guess, are of classic size and shorter than Kenkoís in general.

Are the Asahi Pentax extension tubes auto or non-auto? Do you have the original case for them?

last update

Almost everything is sold.

Would anyone be interested in purchasing all macro accessories (Kenko and Pentax extension tubes, wired remote, and bellows) for $70 total?

Also I would sell Rokinon 8/3.5 for $75 and DA 15/4 Ltd. for $200.

All the best, :-)
