[SOLD] Lenses, Flash and Hoods

Hi, I have a number of lenses and items I would like to sell. Everything is in near-mint condition. I am more of a collector than a photographer so everything is babied and in great shape. I just need to reduce my collection. Please click the links for pictures of each item.

SMC Pentax K 50mm f1.2 Prime Lens - I've been holding on to this beauty for a really long time now, it's time to let someone else have fun with it. It is the extremely well known and sought after f1.2 lens. This lens is an absolute light scoup! You won't find any other lens as fast in the Pentax lineup. I'm a collector, so this lens is immaculate. No yellowing, fungus or any problems whatsoever! Paint is bright and shiny. Focus ring is smooth. Blades are snappy and aperature ring clicks solidly. Very little dust inside. Includes original front and rear caps. If you want a beautiful sample in your collection or just appreciate nice solid equipment, you won't regret this purchase. Sold

SMC Pentax DA 14mm f2.8 Prime Lens - This is a beautifully constructed lens. All metal construction (except for the rubber grip). Faster than almost every other wide angle out there. Flat front element suitable for attaching filters. Super close focusing (closer than the 12-24) for those dramatic shots. Everything is in excellent condition. Includes original box, pouch, hood and caps. In perfect shape operationally. Blades are snappy. Focus ring is the best of any of the DA lenses. Internally focusing so it doesn't extend at all. Absolutely no glas blemishes of any kind. Quality through and through. I'll miss it. SOLD

SMC Pentax FA 24-90mm f3.5-4.5 Zoom Lens - This is an absolutely great zoom lens. The zoom range of 24-90mm is one of the most useful. Those who have actually used a good sample of this lens will attest to its sharpness throughout the zoom range. At the wide end 24mm, it is a fast f3.5 which is only 1/2 stop slower than most prime lenses. It's short focus throw allows extremely fast focus lock on. It has two aspherical elements for good performance. Includes the original unique oval shaped hood which I haven't seen on any other Pentax lenses. Best of all, it is a full frame lens so you benefit from sweet spot performance on APS-C and when Pentax comes out with a full frame camera, you'll be set. In excellent condition with almost no sign of wear. Glass is perfect and blemish free. Aperature ring clicks solidly and blades are snappy. Includes front and rear original caps. Reduced! Asking $275 + shipping.

Vivitar Series 1 105mm f2.5 Macro PKA Lens - This is the renowned Viv Series 1 macro lens which is one of the best lenses Kiron ever made. At f2.5, it is a bit faster than most macro lenses. It is built like a tank with solid metal construction throughout. Very useful built in metal hood. Super long focus throw makes focusing for macro subjects a breeze. This is an manual focus lens. Almost anyone who does macro will tell you that manual focus is much better than autofocus for getting the perfect shot. Once again, this lens is part of my personal collection and is perfect with almost no wear. Glass is perfect. No yellowing, haze or fungus. Aperature clicks solidly, focus is smooth and has the "A" setting for in body aperature control and flash compatibility. Includes orignal hard case and front and rear caps. If you like macro, this lens is almost impossible to beat. One touch and you'll be impressed. Reduced! Asking $385 + shipping.

Soligar 80-200mm f3.5 Zoom M42 Lens - At a constant f3.5 this lens is a very fast 80-200mm zoom. It is a Soligar C/D lens which means it was computer designed. It is extremely solidly constructed (almost all metal including the grip). It is surprising sharp throughout the entire range. It includes a built in metal hood which is really handy. Includes the original box and front and rear caps. If you like vintage equipment, you'll like this lens. It is M42 screw mount so you'll need the M42-PK adapter if you want to use it on modern Pentax cameras. SOLD

Pentax AF-540fgz Flash - This is the top of the line Pentax flash. I've barely used it. It includes all original materials including box, packaging, pouch, instructions, flash stand and flash. It's like new. It works wonderfully with no pin problems. I just didn't use it enough to justify keeping it. Sold
