[SOLD] Super Tak 28mm/hood, Bellows with 4 lenses, rails, Macro Full AE extension tub

I've got several items here. Time to clean house a bit to pay for some other purchases. I haven't photographed the items yet but will add the photos today. I'm open to reasonable offers.

Shipping will be determined on location. Per lens below, $3.00-$10 to USA and Canada depending on item. WW TBD. All prices in USD.
for NA buyers, If you take more than 1 item, I'll ship free. To WW I'll reduce the shipping by half actual cost.

$85.00 Super Takumar 28mm f3.5 This is a sweet lens. Sure it's not super fast but it's sharp wide open. IMO equal to the 50mm above. In near mint condition as well. Includes the original hood (square) the hood case and lens case.

$195 Pentax Auto Bellows and lenses M42 mount. This unit has been added to (not modified). It normally only moves forward and back on the rails to achieve focus. I've added a side to side rail that allows you to recompose the image. Looks like it's new. I've also added a T2 style K mount adapter. This allows a quick mount to any K mount body and gets the bellows away from the flash housing on a body like the K10 or K20D.
With a 50mm lens, you can get a bit better than 3x life sized.
Includes:
1) T2 K mount adapter
2) Second set of side to side rails that are removable.
3) 105mm f2.8 Tele Lentar M42 lens. Includes a slip out hood that has 2 cold shoe flash mounts. You can add a flash to the front of the lens to light the scene. Incl caps
4) Accura Anastigmat 150mm f4.5 M42 Icl hood and caps
5) Spiratone 75mm f3.5. This is a bellow specific lens, 3 CMS long. Perfect for getting in close. Inc caps
6) K to m42 adapter. Just in case you want to mount one of the lens to the body directly while out shooting macros.
7) Accura 85mm f1.8 lens. This is a "User" lens. It works, takes decent shots but it's no Tak. The mechanics are somewhat rough as well. It's a dual preset aperture ring version. Has a zillion aperture blades.

I will not break this kit up. It's a complete macro system that took me 2 years to get together. One of a kind kit. Shipping will be higher due to weight. Approx $35.00 to USA and Canada. Ask for WW.


$50.00 KAX Teleplus This has the contacts for full AE control. Works as a 30mm extension tube. Ever see a Uniplus tube for $125.00? This is the same thing.

-------------------------

Sold Items:

SOLD$250.00 FA50mm f1.4 A very good lens that needs little introduction. I'm also including a Pentax A* 85mm reversible, clip on lens hood. Slight ding in the filter ring that is no issue. Includes front filter as well.

SOLD$265.00 FA50mm macro Considered to be the sharpest lens Pentax made. Having owned the FA*85mm, 31,43 and 77mm limited, I believe it is. It's a sharper lens than these or easily on par. Shows limited signs of use. Glass is excellent. Has original rear cap and Pentax pinch front cap. Also includes a Nikon metal clip on reversible hood. Perfect for this lens.

It has one issue. The clamp button is off this lens. The button may be available to USA customers, I don't know but if so it's a simple and cheap fix. I've covered the spot to make sure dust and water can't get in. The lens does not have a limiter as a result. It's not an issue and doesn't effect the IQ but as a telephoto lens, it can periodically range before locking focus. As a macro it works normally and locks focus fast. Otherwise a perfect lens. If not for this, I'd list it at $375.00 (the average Ebay price when these come up)

SOLD$115.00 SMC Takumar 50mm f1.4 This is as good as it gets. I've bought 4 of these in various versions. It's the one I kept because it is in very good condition but most importantly, there's no yellowing. It's the newest version of this lens before it was discontinued. M42 mount. You simply will not find a better copy. Smokes the FA50mm f1.4 wide open. Includes a metal Tak hood (round screw on) and lens case.

SOLD$40.00 Original Pentax version and Bowers version, M42 to K mount adapters. A Bower that works properly. It's a bit tighter than the Pentax but a great spare, requires a small screwdriver to remove. Shipping will be $3.00 USA and Canada.

SOLD$50 Vivitar 6000 ring flash. Can only be used in manual mode but works just fine. Doesn't matter about M mode as most macro shooters shoot this way anyway. Great for 2 feet or closer. Has a range around 5 feet effectively. Includes mounting ring.

Peter, any chance you can post a picture or two of the Tele Lentar in action as part of your most awesome bellows setup.
If I weren't trying to bring a similar animal to life, I'd pick this whole baby up. Nice group of lenses but I am unfamiliar with this 105mm in the field. Maybe I missed it in Enticing the Light. And sorry if I am being redundant.
Thanks and good luck in your sale, Jools.

I just got to say, the FA 50 macro is an amazing lens, ludicrously sharp and saturated, but still delivering neutral and realistic colours.

The clamp is not a focus limiter, however. All it does is increase friction so manual focus is smoother (it feels more like a manual lens). Activating the clamp will not hamper AF, but it might be slower. Not activating the clamp will make MF somewhat lifeless, like with any AF lens.

Almost the same--the Uniplus tube has autofocus as well.

Yes that's true but with macro, who shoots AF? MF is the only way to get good results. Add a Tak 50mm or any number of good lenses (maybe a 43mm?) and you have a great Macro setup.

Listings updated. Evryone have all the FA50mm's they want?
