[SOLD] m42 lenses, 28mm, 135mm, 2x teleconverter + extension tube (Worldwide)

1- Auto Rikenon 1 : 2.8 f = 28mm m42 mount
The lens is in Very good condition with original metal front lens cap and a rear cap. There are some dust particle inside the lens but very few and none affect picture quality. 8 aperture blades all oil free. The auto manual switch works well. The focus ring shows some sign of use but nothing abusive. It focusses very smoothly. Overall, the lens is in very good condition. Tried it on a K-x with cheapo m42 to k mount adapter and it worked just well. It's not as contrasty as I would like it to be, but PP takes care of that.
Previous owner engraved some sort of identifiation number on it. check out the picture link for more details.
It comes with a bought-on-ebay-m42-to-k-mount-adapter-type . It's not the pentax original, but gets the job done. It allows infinit focus.

15$ shipped to Canada
20$ shipped to the US

howdy - do you have actual samples of images you took with this lens?
And, you are asking 20$ SHIPPED to California? No tax?

Looking forward to hearing from you -
Many thanks,

Kimberly

The lens is indeed 20$ shipped to the US. That is with ground shipping. It can be a little long, but it will get there eventually. Air shipping is an extra 5$.

I will find some pictures soon, or I will go out today and take some.

your lens -

hey there again - im 99% sure that I will get 'her' - I will pay the xtra 5$ for faster shipping (like you offered) - does that include some type of tracking number so that I can keep an 'eyeball' on its progress?

I am most interested in how the bokeh is I know it's a wide angle, but, sometimes they have an interesting bokeh.

SO, - i'd like to send ithe $ via pay pal.. what email can I send it to? ( you do take pay pal, right?)

So - it will be a total of 25$??

Thanks a bunch - looking forward to seeing picts. (im pretty much sure but, the more images you have to share, the better. If you want to post them on flickr (if you have a flickr account - you can send me a link, im not sure how difficult it is to post multiple images here..)



talk to you soon -


Best,

Kim

Good idea :
Here is a link for a picasa web album I just made. The shots are from yesterday where it was about -100 degree outside so the quality of the pics might have suffered from my cold hands and frozen brain !

Picasa Web Albums - Kp0c T. - Vivitar m42 2...

Enjoy everyone.

I will be away from december 29 to the 31. I might be able to take my email a few times during this time so you may send me a PM and I should be able to get back to you guys in a reasonable amount of time.

I'll be back home in about 15-20 hours and will be able to go through with the sale then. I need to figure out who was the first to show interest. I will PM you guys tomorrow.
