[SOLD] Tilt lens set up: MIR 45mm f/3.5 (Pentacon six) and tilt adapter

MIR 45mm f/3.5 lens with Pentacon 6 mount plus tilt adapter for Pentax K - $199 plus $11 for shipping in the US. SOLD

I had a long burning curiosity to try tilt lens shooting, so finally assembled this set up. I got it about as cheaply as one can obtain a tilt lens without some serious DIY, and I am selling it for even cheaper, so now is your chance. I used it once or twice, it was fun, but not something I need, so now maybe it can be yours.

The lens is in great shape, with slight internal dust and a few marks of use externally. No haze or fungus, there might be 3-4 fine scratches or hairs on internal elements - I have no idea how someone got them there, presumably during assembly, although I didn't get it new so who knows. Those do not affect image quality. The lens is not multi-coated, and does suffer from flare and contrast loss at certain angles to the sun. Still, it is quite capable of taking lovely pictures. It is one big honking lens, and heavy too - glad I don't shoot medium format!

The Tilt adapter is the one sold by grizzly33bear.den, and is very well put together. The tilt mechanism works smoothly and holds in place. The apparatus rotates 360 degrees on the base too, to allow for all kinds of tilt between 0 and 8 degrees.

Also included are the lens case, a front and rear lens cap, and 2 filters one of which is green and one of which appears to be a UV type. 82mm, they are big! If you have any questions please let me know.

Thanks for looking!

ps DA40 not included, shown only for size reference.
pps not looking to sell separately, although I will listen to juicy offers. :-)
pps #2 you can get a shift adapter for this as well, but my adapter does tilt only.

Bump for a decent lens on a very good tilt adapter (that I also own). These adapters in Pentax mount are getting harder and harder to find. See this thread for more examples of the combinations and effects.
