[SOLD] MZ-30, FA 28-80mm 1:3.5-5.6 AL, F 28-80mm 1:3.5-4.5, Ricoh XR 35-70 1:3.5 (Wor

I keep telling myself I am not going to buy any more lenses, but I am always wrong! Trying to adhere to a "one comes in, one goes out" approach negotiated with my wife, I now have several items to offer for sale:

Ricoh XR 35-70mm f/3.5 MF zoom with 1:4.5 "macro" at 35mm - $5
Converted to a preset with stop-less aperture due to missing camera coupling when I got it. The aperture ring turns freely, and stops the lens down as it does so. I glued a little piece of wood in to tell the camera to treat it as always wide open, and I found a replacement light baffle and glued that in too. Will work in Av mode just as an M42 lens does (in Manual mode), with stop down metering. I used this one for a year or two, but now found another copy so can let this go for cheap. Constant aperture is nice, macro mode is nice, original front cap is included. Black.

FA 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 AL AF zoom - $29 SOLD
Light weight, with great colors and decent sharpness. Somewhat rare bayonet hood is included, along with 58mm UV filter and Pentax rear cap that is cracked but will protect the rear element. Silver. Works well on the MZ-30 below.

F 28-80mm f/3.5-4.5 AF zoom - $49 SOLD
Heavy but solid, with a nice macro mode at 80mm to 1:4 or so. In beautiful condition, almost new, with both Pentax caps and in original box - marked $279!!! Gets some of the best MTF ratings of any Pentax zoom lens at photodo. Not better than my F 35-70 to my eye, but a better range in any case.

Plus I have a MZ-30 which has a few cosmetic blemishes but works fine, you can have that for only $9 plus shipping. No caps strap or case though. SOLD

Shipping in the US is $8, for one or more items, even all of them. I am happy to ship internationally although price will vary by country, please inquire. Also I will give a full refund if you find any item to be other than as described. Sample shots available on request, and please ask about any other questions!

Thanks for looking, Nick

A few sample shots with the Rikenon. Perhaps I have thrown people off with the low price; the mechanicals are weird but it is some nice glass.

MZ-30 now on eBay, at 99 cents:

Pentax MZ-30 35mm Film SLR Camera Body - Auto-focus - eBay (item 180568309182 end time Oct-08-10 20:00:53 PDT)

I'm not sure what to do about the Rikenon. It's such a nice lens, I am surprised no one wants it for peanuts. Maybe I will keep this one and sell the copy without issues, or maybe I will put it on eBay too.

Only a few hours left on the MZ-30 auction, and no bids - could be yours for 99 cents!
