[SOLD] “Larger than life” Combo – Pentax A 100/2.8 Macro w/A 50mm Extension Tub (Worl

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
“Larger than life” Combo – Pentax A 100/2.8 Macro w/K 50mm Extension Tube

Asking Price
USD 700 + Shipping

Item Location
Vancouver, Canada

Item Description
Arguably one of the sharpest Pentax legacy lenses, and performs in par with the prestige ZK100/2 Makro as shown in the bird figurine photos below. This superb MF macro lens, however, is not intended for portrait due to the “details” that it can reveal! I use an a K 50mm Extension Tube to couple this lens and bring ~ 2X magnification as demonstrated in the doll photos below. I have also used this combo to copy & crop 35mm slides with great result. This lens can be use on K mount film & dSLR in all exposure modes including TTL auto flash. Unfortunately, the lens & with the Extension Tube combination doesn't work with pTTL auto flash.

This A100/2.8 Macro comes in original case with strap, caps and 58mm Hoya filter. The Extension Tube has no caps or case. There is a ~ 4mm fine lint struck on the inside surface of one the front elements but doesn’t affect IQ. The technician told me there is no point to open up the lens for such minor cleaning.

The pics I seeof the "A 50mm extension tube" appear to be the Auto Extension Tube K. The only 50mm Pentax tube I am aware of is the Auto Extension Tube K. For some reason Pentax never released an A series tubes, i.e. with the 'A' contacts. Since this is the K tube, that is why it can't support p-ttl flash and the only 3 digital Pentax bodies that can support ttl are the *istD, DS, and DS2.

Could be a K 50mm Tube

Thanks, Blue! You are probably right. I have this Tube for so long that I may mess up the nomenclature.

It is still a nice piece of equipment and it is somewhat hard to come by the Pentax 50mm and 100mm tubes.
