Description:

20/2.8 - Minty, sharp copy of this rare, beautiful lens. There's little or no signs of wear and the glass is clean with some internal dust, aperture is clean and snappy. Interesting and very useful focal length on APS-C cameras, I'd love to see it on FF. Includes front and rear caps and a B&W rubber hood.

24/2.8 - Minty, very good copy of another interesting and very useful lens. This copy is sharp, especially @F8/11 where it peaks, no wear on the body and glass and aperture are clean. CLA'd for dust and dry focus ring about a year ago. Includes front and rear caps.

28/2.8 - Minty copy with no signs of wear. Pretty consistent with reviews this one can be a little flat sometimes, but brilliant sometimes as well. A little dusty, but still sharp. Includes caps and a vintage, dedicated Pentax case.

35/2.0 - Minty, sharp copy with no signs of wear. One of my all-time fav's, if it's not on the K20 it's at least in the bag. Good low-light lens, decent sharpness wide open and very sharp stopped down. This one is dusty inside, but doesn't affect IQ. Can be CLA'd by my local shop for very reasonable cost.
Includes caps, a metal Hoya hood and 58mm Pentax cap that fits the hood

50/1.4 - Minty, sharp copy with no signs of wear. Great portrait lens on Pentax digital bodies, only bested by the VL 58mm Nokton for me. Nicely softens up at @F2.8, great color and resolution, very sharp stopped down. CLA'd a couple of years ago, a little dusty, but very sharp.
Includes caps, vintage Asahi hood and 62mm Pentax cap that fits the hood.
Pentax-A 50mm F1.4 Reviews - A Prime Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

100/2.8 - Excellent copy of a great little lens. This one is very sharp with decent bokeh, the body shows signs of wear only on the knurled lip of the built-in hood. The glass is dusty, but doesn't affect IQ. There was a ding to the filter threads, but I had it fixed. Included are caps and a Pentax HA-98 case.
Can be CLA'd by my local shop for very reasonable cost.

135/2.8 - This is a sharp copy of a very good lens. I don't know why it didn't get the love it deserves. Great long portrait lens and very sharp stopped down. This one is excellent with only couple of small scuffs on the body. CLA'd about a year ago for dust and minor fungus inside the front element. Includes caps.

35-105/3.5 - This is a great, fun lens with a very usable focal range on Pentax digital bodies. It's sharp and has a warm, slight softening wide open, great portrait lens! Also great for flowers, etc because of it's color quality and sharpness stopped down. It's a brick too with great build quality. This one is minty with no signs of wear and only moderate dust inside. Includes caps and a nice rubber hood.

70-210/4.0 - Another fun lens with good IQ, color quality and sharpness. Like the 35-105 it's a brick (lots of glass and all metal) with great build quality. This one is minty with no signs of wear to the body, tight focus and zoom with slight zoom creep when pointed straight down, dusty inside but doesn't affect IQ. Includes caps and vintage Takumar case.

Thanks Dave, I wish you could afford 'em. I'd love to see them go to a good home. As much as I've enjoyed them on the K200 and K20 it breaks my heart not to get to use them on a FF Pentax.

cheers

Thanks for all the interest and PMs. I'll hold out another day or 2 for a whole kit buyer and then respond to PMs in the order received.

thanks

Nice collection!

Sad to see it broken up, I'd be all over the 24 & 35 if I hadn't just paid my tuition for M.Arch :/
