[SOLD] Vivitar 24mm f/2.8 PKA (Cosina) (Worldwide)

Vivitar 24mm f/2.8 PKA (Cosina)- $99

This is a handy little wide angle lens that is very wide on film and still decently wide on a DSLR sensor. F/2.8 is faster than most zooms, and sharpness is quite good. I usually boost contrast and saturation a little in PP to match my Pentax lenses, but otherwise image quality is very good. It is not labeled "macro" but focuses down to less than 20cm, for about 1:4.5 magnification. This is good for flower shots, if not bugs. Build quality is good, and size is small, making for a nice travel lens. And it has the "A" setting, which makes it totally compatible with a DSLR. This one has no haze, fungus or scratches on the glass, although the body shows some signs of use.

Shipping will be $5 in the US, and a little more elsewhere; please ask about your country. I will happily take returns in the first week or so if you find it's not what you wanted, but unless it is other than as described you will pay for shipping both ways. Please ask any questions you may have! Thanks much, Nick

PS although marked for Ricoh as well, the "pin" is only a ball bearing that has never given me the slightest hesitation on any AF body.
PPS if you want to combine shipping you can: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/photographic-equipment-sale/112979-sale-p...worldwide.html
