[SOLD] FA 35/2, F 50/1.7, Tam 28-75/2.8, Viv S1 70-210 v3, Sig 105/2.8 Macro & 15-30/

Trimming down the gear to bare essentials in preparation for a forthcoming expat assignment. Holding onto plenty of lenses to keep me in the game, but unloading those which simply don't see enough use. I'd rather have these lenses in the hands of someone who will use them than in storage for 2 years. I'll have pics posted in about a week.

See bottom section for payment, shipping, return, fine print, etc.

Items for Sale or Trade

USD$390 (incl shipping, see below) | SMC Pentax-FA 35mm f/2 AL

Original owner: No

Edit to add: Found myself a replacement MF 35mm, so the FA is up for sale, now.

Very good cosmetic and excellent functional condition. Purchased from a fellow PFer Apr 2008. I think by now everyone knows this mighty fine lens. I'm sad to see it go, but this lens should go to someone who will use it more than I do. At the moment, I'm holding out for an interesting trade. If interested in buying, drop me a line and I'll keep you in mind once I give up on the trade and decide to sell.

Photos: 1, 2 ,3, 4

Includes:
  • Lens
  • Hood
  • Pentax front & rear caps
  • Original outer box (but perhaps not all the box innards) and paperwork

USD$350 USD$390 (incl shipping, see below) | Sigma AF 15-30mm f/3.5-4.5 EX DG Aspherical

Original owner: Yes

Excellent functional and cosmetic condition. Purchased by me new ~Aug 2008. Full frame, for those holding out for digital FF or also shooting film. Outstanding reviews here on PF.

Photos: 1, 2 ,3, 4, 5

Includes:
  • Lens w/ built-in hood
  • Removable cap / filter ring
  • Front original & generic rear caps
  • Padded case
  • Original box and paperwork

SOLD USD$330 (incl shipping, see below) | Tamron SP AF28-75mm F/2.8 XR Di LD Aspherical (IF)

Original owner: No

Excellent functional and cosmetic condition. Purchased from a fellow PFer Aug 2008. Full frame, for those holding out for digital FF or also shooting film. Strong positive reviews here on PF.

Photos: 1, 2 ,3, 4

Includes:
  • Lens
  • Hood
  • Front & rear caps
  • Original box and paperwork

SOLD USD$150* USD$125 | SMC Pentax-F 50mm f/1.7

* Apologies to all -- the flurry of PMs on this item quickly alerted me to the fact that I mis-typed the price. My planning spreadsheet clearly noted $150, yet I typed $125 in the listing. This is the confirmed, correct price -- it will not change again.

Original owner: No

Very good functional and good cosmetic condition. Purchased on eBay Nov 2009 and sent to Eric for once-over and cleaning. Eric's comments after cleaning indicated "micro-scratches" on the rear element. Even if I really strain to view the micro-scratches, I have a very hard time seeing them and I've noticed no impact on IQr. I tried capturing photos of them, but to no avail...they're simply too difficult for me to see, much less photo effectively. Worried? Don't be. See Returns section below.

Includes:
  • lens
  • Pentax front & generic rear caps
  • Documentation from Eric (I have it here somewhere, and if I can't track it down I'll have Eric scan and send to me)


SOLD USD$390 | Sigma 105mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro

Original owner: No

Excellent functional and cosmetic condition. Purchased from a fellow PFer Oct 2009. Full frame, for those holding out for digital FF or also shooting film. Outstanding reviews here on PF.

  • Padded case

SOLD USD$140 | Vivitar Series 1 70-210 f/2.8-4.0 Macro Zoom, v3

Original owner: No

Excellent functional and very good cosmetic condition. This is the oft-desired Komine-manufactured version 3 with "A" aperture setting. Plenty of detail about the Viv S1 70-210 lenses at Robertstech. Purchased from a fellow PFer May 2008. Full frame, for those holding out for digital FF or also shooting film. Outstanding reviews here on PF.

Shipping

USA -- prices include FedEx Ground / Home Delivery to Paypal-confirmed addresses, including insurance for full sale value, delivery confirmation, and required delivery signature.

Canada -- Same as USA, but pay the price difference between the nearest USA metro area and buyer's location.

International -- Pay actual shipping costs in addition to listed price. Three options:
  • FedEx/DHL or UPS, including insurance for full sale value (no, I won't reduce the value to save on customs duties), delivery confirmation, and required delivery signature. Seller assumes liability until delivery.
  • USPS Express or Priority Mail International, with Return Receipt (only a limited # of countries provide this service via USPS; most do not), insured for full sale value (no, I won't reduce the value to save on customs duties). Seller assumes liability until delivery.
  • USPS Express or Priority Mail International, without Return Receipt (only a limited # of countries provide this service via USPS; most do not), insured for full sale value (no, I won't reduce the value to save on customs duties). Buyer assumes ALL liability upon seller's proof of shipment. To be clear: if something goes wrong with the shipping -- delivery delay or failure, lost package, damage, etc. -- buyer is fully liable and seller bears no liability or responsibility.

Payment Options

Paypal, to confirmed / verified addresses ONLY. Buyer and seller split Paypal fees (if applicable) 50/50 since it's a benefit and convenience to both parties.

Timelines

Please note: I don't return home til 10 Aug, so I can't ship before then.

Purchase Returns

Buyers have 48 hrs after confirmed receipt to test / review and ensure the item meets their satisfaction and seller's description. If buyer is not satisfied, buyer must ship lens to seller via the same carrier, service level, and service options (or alternative carrier, service level, and service options as mutually agreed). Buyer is responsible for all return shipping costs, customs duties, fees, and assumes all liability until seller confirms receipt and condition of returned goods. Upon receipt of returned goods and confirmation of contents and condition, I'll refund the full purchase price, less original shipping costs and any applicable Paypal fees.

Trade Returns / Reversal

Both parties have 48 hrs after receipt to test / review and ensure the items meet their satisfaction and trader's descriptions. If one party is not satisfied, we'll attempt to reach a resolution that doesn't require reversing the trade. But if we cannot come to agreement, both parties pay return shipping via the same carrier, service level, and options, or alternative carrier, service level, and options as mutually agreed. If money is involved, the full price will be refunded, less any applicable Paypal costs. Upon receipt and confirmation of contents and condition, and Paypal refund, both parties will consider the transaction fully reversed and closed.

Non-Delivery Returns

In the case of items returned to me due to non-delivery (for any reason other than my error), buyer or trader is responsible for any and all fees associated with return and may opt <1> to cancel the trade and receive a refund (if applicable) less actual shipping and Paypal costs, or <2> for re-shipment (trader is responsible for all re-shipment costs and any additional Paypal fees).

Delays

Seller is not responsible for carrier delivery delays.

Customs Duties, Fees, and Taxes

Buyer is solely responsible for complete payment of any and all customs duties, fees, and taxes during original shipment, returns, returns due to non-delivery, and/or re-shipment.

Full Contact Information

Buyer must be willing to share (privately, of course) full contact information -- legal name, home address, email, home/mobile phone #s -- to ensure multiple channels of communication in case anything goes screwy with PF.com.

Miscellaneous

This is not necessarily a first-come, first-served listing.

Contact

Please send me a private message if interested in the item!

Yes. Upon confirmation of any lens sale, I'll update the original post so it accurately reflects which are available and which are sold.
