[SOLD] Kiron 105mm f2.8 Macro, Russian 500mm f8 Reflex Lens, Pentax A 50mm f2

Up for Sale or Trade are 3 lenses with their corresponding filters, and front and back caps, in good to very good cosmetic condition and no flaws in the optics or mechanics.

First up is the legendary Kiron (also branded as Lester Dine) 105mm f2.8 manual Macro lens in K mount. It will go to 1:1 without the need for filters. It comes with a 52 mm UV filter.
Optically it is in flawless condition, and it will focus to infinity, giving a very pleasant Bokeh for portrait shots.
Cosmetically it has some evident blemishes, as the markings are in paint and not engraved, and some scratches. It was just recently under maintenance (when I bought it, it did not focus to infinity, so I got that fixed before selling it). Asking 250 USD SHIPPED / Now: 230 USD

Making Not Taking: Kiron 105mm f/2.8 1:1 Macro Lens - Kino's Prize

Note: I absolutely love the lens, and hate to part with it, but while working with a K7 and the Sigma 140DG Marco Flash I could not use the flash in Auto Mode (or didn’t figure out how ) and as a result the pictures where constantly overexposed. So I have decided to get an AF Marco instead.

Second up is a Russian 500mm f8 Reflex Lens (Maksutov-Cassegrain MC 3M-5CA, 8/500 mm), in M42 mount. It comes with 4 72mm filters (UV and 3 color filters). It is build like a Tank and cosmetically it is in perfect condition. Optically it is also perfect, but I did notice a very tiny cleaning mark right on the corner of the lens as I was taking the pictures of it to put up on this post. Be assured that it is only possible to see if you look very closely.
In some online reviews and posts on this forum it is regarded for giving a very pleasant image.
I bought this lens to try it out for wildlife (birds), but the focus throw is too long and the aperture to small for this purpose, so I ended up using it 3 or 4 times and then it landed in the closet.
Asking 100 USD - SOLD

And last, but not least is a Pentax SMC A 50mm f2 lens, I bought it Ebay a few months ago to use it to do Digiscoping but ended up never using it. Glasses are clean. It comes with a Skylight Filter.
Asking 40 USD SHIPPED / Now: 30 USD

I guess the flash did not work because it does not have the A aperture setting- it should work using the meter of the flash, though. Thats the first Kiron I see without the A function.

Prices now include Shipping

The prices for the Kiron and the Pentax A 50mm f2 now include shipping to the continental US.

The Kiron has some cosmetic blemishes but it is one of the best macro lenses out there.

I have used this lens on the K7 with no issues at all, it will measure accurately and control the aperture, but it is a manual focus lens. Shipping to Malaysia should be about equal to or more than the price of the lens.
