Asking Price
$75

Item Location
Kearney, Nebraska USA

Item Description
This is a great bargain: Hard to find macros this fast (f2.8) but please read the entire description. I have 100% feedback partly because I describe my stuff well.

This lens is a manual focus lens that originally had a Pentax K/R (Ricoh) mount. As you may know, Ricoh mounts have a pin that can cause removal problems on Pentax DSLRs however I fixed this problem by "Ricoh de-pinning" it. I've used this lens after de-pinning it with no problems on my K-x. The other issue you should be aware of is that although this lens has an "A" setting on the aperture I could not get it to work as with other Pentax-A lenses (again probably because of the K/R mount). However it works fine if you use it as you would any Pentax-M lens (set the aperture on the lens and let the camera do the exposure setting for you).

This lens is in excellent optical and mechanical condition. No oil on blades, aperture snappy, glass superb. It comes with a screw-in lens hood. Judge for yourself with the images below:









Images taken with the lens. Note that these were all handheld on a windy day at f8, 1600 ISO with my K-x.











For information on how to use M lenses easily in M mode on your K-x see: http://support.pentaximaging.com/documents/908

Bump for a price drop. Are you kidding me? If this said "Pentax-M" on it, it would be bringing twice this money!

Bumpity-bump.

Also images taken with this lens added to the original post (handheld macros at f8 and 1600 ISO!)

Also a link added on how simple it is to use M lenses on your K-x. Just a couple of menu settings and then use the Green Button to stopdown meter in M mode.
