[SOLD] Complete Pentax lens dispersal part 1 (Worldwide)

I have decided to head over to a Leica Rangefinder so all gear must go. I already have a couple of items listed separately here and there will be more to come in the next few days.

I have mentioned the presence of dust in most of these lenses. In all instances I have never seen anything to suggest that image quality is affected. It is very minor in all cases and I have only mentioned it for full disclosure.

1) M 75-150/4 zoom $40 Sold. This is in very good condition optically but definitely looks used. Everything works as it should - the zoom function works smoothly and has no play in it, and the focus and aperture rings work as they should. The slide out hood is a bit sticky but still works fine. Externally there is a fair bit of paint rubbed off and a few scratches but no dents or anything to suggest that it has been mistreated. Has great reviews, check them out on this forum.

Comes with pouch, caps and inbuilt hood.


2) Leica R 90mm f2 Summicron (k mount) $600 Sold. This is a lens that has excellent reviews and following wherever you look on the internet. It produces superb Leica colours and has a wonderful bokeh. Great for portraits. Optically there are no scratches, aperture and focus work properly and there is only minor dust inside.

Comes with caps and inbuilt hood.


3) Tokina AT-X 90mm f2.5 (Bokina) including 1:1 macro extender $420 Sold. This is a magnificent macro lens and the adapter is not always easy to find. It is very close to original condition with the only exception being some tiny dust particles in the lens. Again you can easily find rave reviews either on this forum or elsewhere on the net.

Comes with extender, Tokina caps and original lens hood.


4) Leica Macro-elmarit R 60mm f2.8 (k mount) $400 Sold. I have only had this lens a short while but I am very sorry to see it go. It have found it great for people shots as well as the macro function. I don't have the extender for this one but it goes to a 1:2 reproduction ratio without it so is pretty good anyway (there are quite a few on ebay if you want one). Everything works smoothly although the aperture ring doesn't "click" into position like every other lens I have, it just turns smoothly and then stays where you leave it. This is no issue as it still selects the aperture you set it to. Again there is some minor dust inside and no other optical imperfections. Cosmetically it is very good.

Comes with caps, no hood needed as the front element is deeply recessed.


5) Last but not least is my black FA 43mm limited $620 Sold. It is in excellent condition and has not seen much use. Comes with pouch, original caps and original hood.


I'll post pictures as replies.

The macro-elmarit is a really sharp lens with lovely skin tones for portraits. At $400 it is great value for money I think.

((oops just saw that it's sold! well leadbelly can look for a copy on ebay (they are pretty common and easy to adapt))
