[SOLD] 3 lenses (one macro), 2 TCs

Switching to Pentax last year I quickly built a bag full while I learned what I would use versus what would gather dust. Here are 4 items I started with that I no longer use.

Tamron Pz-AF MC4 1.4x Teleconverter - $122 SOLD

Pentax F28-80mm f3.5-4.5 - $23 SOLD

Soligor 500mm combo: 75-250mm f4.5 manual focus zoom plus Soligor 2x TC - $33 SOLD

Phoenix 100mm f3.5 1:1 macro - $120

Pictures are pretty indicative of condition. There are no hidden cracks, dents or anything other than a small amount of wear on the mounts and small nicks in the finish of the Soligor. Where case/bag is shown it is included. Pictures show the entire purchase, if it its not in the picture, its not included.

The Tamron TC supports SDM, at least on my da*300/4. It was purchased off this Marketplace last year.

The Pentax F28-80 was purchased from KEH last year. Its cosmetic condition is excellent, inside and out and it has a macro mode for pretty close focusing. What it doesn't have is dampening on the FOCUS RING and although both AF and MF are accurate, the ring turns too freely. It does not move by itself, once focused it stays in place. Lens cap is brand new and cost $11 by itself.

The Soligor lens was purchased from B&H last year and the Soligor TC from this Marketplace. The lens has surprisingly good sharpness but requires contrast adjustment for all long pics due to low contrast. It has a built-in hood that extends. If you want to experiment with shooting at 500mm this is a great cheap way to get started. I found the TC really works best with this Soligor lens. Will include free, bonus lens (Soligor 85-300mm) with this combo for only the additional shipping cost. The 300mm is not as good a match with the TC.

The Phoenix 100mm macro was purchased on this marketplace last year and I can honestly say its 1:1 macro quality is so close to that of my Tamron 90mm macro I could not tell the difference. Where it is not as good as the $500 macro lenses is at a distance other than macro, like portrait. Its a great macro and backup 100mm solution. I included one picture I took with it when I first got it.

EDIT: I have been asked if there is an issue with the Phoenix at non-macro distances. Definitly not! I seem to have implied it mostly due to not using that focal length. I just added two sample shots from today of a brick walk; original at 8' and f8 and 100% crop.









100%crop



TERMS: Paypal, prefer US buyer (so I can insure and ship from home office). Prices already low so they are firm.

SHIPPING: USPS preferred but negotiable. For USPS, $6 for all items but the Soligor combo which is $9. Includes insurance. Will ship to paypal verified address.

RETURNS: If misrepresented, notify me within 3 days of receipt and I reimburse 100% including shipping and fees when I get it back. If you just don't like the item for any reason, notify me within 5 days and I reimburse 100% minus shipping and fees when I get it back.

Thanks for looking,
Lee

Been out of town for the Fourth, can't paypal on my phone. If they're still available when I get to my home computer this afternoon I'll still take them. Sorry for not communicating that more clearly, I try to avoid posting on the blackberry when possible.

Edit: Payment sent.
