[SOLD] DA 35mm Macro, F 50mm f1.7, Vivitar 24mm f2.8 (PKA), Hoya 135mm f2.8 (PK) (Wor

Price: AUD, inc postage in Australia if you pay by bank deposit
If overseas/ pay by paypal, add postage on top of that.
500, 220, 100, 75

I am looking to trade (lenses and or cash) for an FA limited 43mm, in good optical/mechanical condition, any colour, made anywhere.
Let me know if you're interested in doing so (ie, make me an offer!)


The Story:
Wanting to clean up and simplify the lens collection. I spend too much time fiddling when I
should be shooting!

I love both the 35mm and the 50mm, but they are just a bit of a goldilocks story to me, the 35mm
is too wide, and a touch slow, the 50mm is a touch long. I always seem to want the one I don't have on me or my camera!

The Vivitar is great little lens, but I have an autofocus Sigma which I prefer. The Hoya is a fantastic lens,
I just have no need for the focal length.


Lens Specifics:

DA 35mm: includes box, caps, pouch. Price drop: $480AUD inc postage to aus if paying by bank deposit!
Bought on eBay earlier this year, have probably taken a few thousand photos with it.
Excellent mechanical/optical condition, some minor cosmetic marks on the focus ring. Minimal dust/ no fungus and coatings all in great condition.

Pending :F 50mm f/1.7: Just caps. $220AUD
Bought here on the forums a few months ago.
Good mechanical/optical and cosmetic condition.
Small scratches/spots on the front element - no impact on image quality. Minimal dust, no fungus.
Filter ring is just fine - (apparently a common problem for this lens, so thought I'd mention it)

Pending: Vivitar 24mm f/2.8: just caps. $100AUD
A-mount (auto aperture and metering!) manual focus.
A little gem of a lens, compact, nice mechanics, focuses quite closely. Good colour
and saturation (especially compared to my sigma AF 24mm!).
Excellent mechanical/optical condition, you won't be disappointed.

Pending: Hoya 135mm f/2.8: caps, original box. $75AUD
Compact, solid 135mm, possibly made by Tokina for Hoya.
52mm diameter filter, inbuilt hood, focuses to 1.2m .
Excellent optical and mechanical condition, small size for a 135mm prime.

Photos for all to follow tomorrow.


I am on ebay by the same handle (subtle_goat).

Returns - only if I have made an error in the listing.

PM me if you're interested.

Thanks, but no thanks, I'm only interested in the 43mm limited at the moment.

And finally, Hoya 135mm pics.

Kind of sad to be letting it go now that I've taken these It is a very nice lens. Pity I haven't used it to take a photo in quite a while.
