[SOLD] Various Takumar Primes, Chinon Primes, Sigma Prime/Zoom/Fisheye (Worldwide)

I'm selling various old lenses I've picked up over the past couple of years in order to move up to more modern glass. Shipping/handling is $5 within the U.S., and negotiable for those outside the U.S. I'm happy to combine shipping if you buy more than one item. I can take sample images with any of the lenses on my K-5 by request.

M42 Pentax
Super-Multi- Coated Takumar 1:3.5/35mm. Excellent Condition, with only minor wear on the mount threads. There is a small amount of dust inside, as is to be expected with a lens this age, but it does not affect image quality. Aperture blades are clean and super snappy. Includes front and rear caps. $75


Super Takumar 1:3.5/28mm. Rarer early version with 58mm filter ring. Lens itself is in Excellent condition, with clean glass, snappy aperture blades, and silky smooth action, with only minor wear on the mount threads. Includes front and rear caps, and green-velvet lined leatherette case. The front metal cap has some minor corrosion on its exterior which does not affect its function. Includes a free CPC Phase 2 58mm Polarizing Filter. $75


Super Macro Takumar 1:4/50mm Like New. This fantastic lens is in as good shape as any I have seen of its age. The lens itself is in fantastic condition and delivers stunningly sharp macro shots. The glass is clear and clean, with only light internal dust. Includes front and rear caps and red velvet-lined leatherette case, all in excellent condition $125


Non-Pentax M42
Chinon 1:2.8/28 - Surprisingly sharp 3rd party lens, well regarded around the internet (Good Performer! Chinon 28mm f2.8 (M42) (Page 1) - Manual Lens: Usage - Manual Focus Forum). Built like a tank. Excellent Condition, includes box, missing front lens cap. $75


Sigma Filtermatic Fish Eye VS 1:2.8/16mm: This somewhat rare unique lens features three internal filters (Y-48, O-56 and LB-180) that can be switched using a ring on the barrel Includes built-in hood, 2nd detachable hood, and front and rear caps. While this lens is not the sharpest in my kit by any stretch of the imagination, it is a fun and affordable fisheye to have around, especially if you are shooting full-frame film. Lens is in good condition, with some minor dings on the body, and light marks in the coating of the rear element. Some of the internal blacking appears to have worn, but is not in the light path, so it should not affect the image. Aperture blades are snappy, and focus is smooth. Includes front and rear caps, detachable secondary hood, and leatherette case. $150


K Mount Lenses

Auto Chinon 1:2.8/28mm Macro MC The updated KA version of the m42 listed above, this Chinon features similarly sharp optics, a smaller profile, macro focusing, and the A setting on the ring, allowing for automatic metering with modern cameras. This lens is in good-excellent condition, with smooth action and clean aperture blades. Does not include front or rear caps, but will accept standard pentax K rear cap and 49mm front cap. $50


Promaster Spectrum 7 Multi-Coated 1:2.8/28mm
Another 3rd party 28mm K mount prime, this lens is a rebadge of the famous Sigma Mini-Wide II. A capable walking-around lens, the 28mm length and A aperture setting make this an excellent and affrodable companion to aps-c digital SLRs. SOLD!


Quantaray Tech 10 PF AF 1:4-5.6, F-AF 70-300mm Zoom This zoom is another rebadged Sigma 70-300, featuring a long zoom range, Low Dispersion Optics, and close-focusing macro mode at 300mm. Good beginner's zoom. Excellent condition, with all optics and electronics in working order. Includes box and documentation. SOLD!

NOTE: I Have been asked whether the Promaster and Auto Chinon K mount lenses have the KR (Ricoh) aperutre pin making them a risk to get stuck on Pentax digital SLRs. Both of these lenses originally did have such pins, but I have removed them myself. This does not affect the camera's functioning with Pentax cameras. If you buy either lens and intend to use it on a Ricoh camera, let me know, and I can either reinstall the pin or include it with your shipment.

It's raining outside now, but here is a quick snap i took a few days ago that should give you an idea of its capabilities). This is wide open (f5.6) at maximum extension (300mm), so it is really pushing the lens to the limit. Sharpness increases as you step down and decrease zoom. 1/200 sec at ISO 400. Keep in mind also, this image was taken through a sliding glass door, hence the linear vignetting on the left.

Final bump before a bunch of these go to ebay- I dropped the shipping prices to $5, so save a few bucks!
