[SOLD] Primes: Helios 40-2, Asahi 55/1.8, Vivitar 19mm/3.8 & step up rings

All pricing is plus actual estimated cost for USPS (Saturday morning) shipping via paypal (I pay Paypal fees). Will ship worldwide.

Helios 40-2: 85mm f1.5 The portrait legend It includes a front "Pentax" lens cap and rubber hood that I bought for it. It also has the original rear cap and leather hard case with two yellow filters. It is in good condition physically (some brassing). A little internal dust inside and some micro-abrasions on the front element – won’t show up in photos. The focus is a little stiff -- not an uncommon trait, but it is stiff. Not so much so that it will unscrew the lens from the mount, but focusing on a moving object will be a challenge. I'm sure that it could be dismantled to replace the grease if you choose to, but I'm too lazy. The lens is close enough in focal length to my Tamron 90mm macro that I just don't use it. My primary photographic target is my toddler who even outruns my auto-focus much of the time. It is a great portrait lens that can give you some cool bokeh and SHALLOW depth of field. For those who don’t know – this is a manual focus, screw mount lens. $375 SOLD!

Asahi 55mm f1.8 super-multi-coated Takumar lens (M42 mount, manual focus). Beautiful exterior and glass. The focus gives a bit more resistance toward infinity, but isn’t bad by any means. Comes with a generic rear cap, an Asahi Pentax slip-on front cap and a back-up Honeywell Pentax slip on front cap. $25 SOLD!

Vivitar 19mm f2.8 FULL FRAME K-mount lens with contacts for automatic aperture control. Pretty wide on a digital camera and stupidly wide on a film camera. Very clean little lens. Manual focus. $80 Sold!

Step-up-rings. K-mount with no contacts. Kit with 3 rings. Like new. $10 Sold!

That Helios 40-2 is legendary indeed! Love the images out of this thing--yeah you have to work for them, but they're worth it!

Good luck with the sale!
