[SOLD] Spotmatic, 18-250mm, Super Takumar 55mm, A50mm (Worldwide)

Asahi Pentax Spotmatic with goodies $40
I bought this in a box of lenses. I don't know anything about this camera, other than the fact that this guy took great care of his lenses. Looks like the owner used a tripod often.

I unscrewed the base plate and used vinegar to loosen the battery, and I removed the old battery. But I didn't find a replacement battery, so the compartment is empty.

This has a "hat" for flash on the prism. It isn't electrically connected, use the external flash port with your own wire.

Also includes a right angle viewfinder with leather pouch. The viewport rotates so you can use this in portrait orientation or upside down if you choose. I've read that a dremel can be used to take a centimeter off the bracket so that it fits on a modern DSLR.

I've seen the right angle adapter sell for about $30 without the spottie.

Tamron 18-250mm ƒ/3.5-6.3 $350
Ideal travel lens. Often cited for better IQ than other superzooms.

Lens only, no box.

Super-Takumar 55mm ƒ/1.8 $40 *SOLD*
Classic, smooth, produces nice warm photos. m42 mount, requires adapter to fit PK.

Lens only, no box. If the A-50 listed below sells first I may retract this lens for a while.

SMC Pentax-A 50mm ƒ/2.0 $30 *SOLD*
I think this is the most common Pentax lens ever made. I like to stop it down to 2.8 or more and it does a fine job. Convenient 'A' setting. Compact and light.

Lens only, no box. If the Super Tak listed above sells first I may retract this lens for a while.

Included in price to CONUSA. Ask for worldwide shipping, generally $15 more.

Sunday bump.

I'll add that the 18-250 objective element looks superb. Zoom in on that photo and see for yourself.
