AF080C Macro ring flash $100.00---------------------sold
ZX-5 film body $75.00

All of the following are thumnails which will expand if clicked on

The rare 15 includes metal lens cap. ---------------------sold

This is the 35-70 f/4 macro/zoom. I believe this model holds its F/4 speed through out its range.

Pentax-A f/1.7--the classic 'normal' lens' for many upscale film bodies.---------------------sold

Penetax-A f/1.4---the upscale option for those with deeper pockets.---------------------sold

The f/4 100 mm Macro. They don't make them better than this classic.

Pentax-A 135mm f/2.8--You gotta have a 135 because..... It isn't an exotic one, but a classic f/2.8 model

This is the f/4 version of the 200mm. It's exceptionally clean

This is a A* 300 f/4. The sliding lens hood is battered a bit, and is loose. Though it comes with a 77 mm filter, the filter was installed by me
and a little late. a prior owner marred the lens coating on the front element. It's not plainly visible, and I can't figure to get a photo of it, but if you hold it to the light just right you can see it. I've marked the price down on this because of these cosmetics which I feel are more than normal for a lens of this age. I don't believe the lens mar (it's more of a scrape, than a scratch) impairs the outstanding quality of the photos that this glass is capable of.

On EDIT:----Finally got a photo of the lense flaw----This is a macro shot as closely focused as a FA100 maco will focus. The heaviest part starts about 1/2" from the edge of the front element and it tails toward the center. The series of marks is about a 1/2" long.

This is an upscale autofocus film body. Batteries not included. There were some more expensive models, but this one is a model
that is all there. Sort of like a 'Super Program' with autofocus and a pop up flash added. This model (unlike some of its low end brothers) works correctly with the older Pentax-M (and other original K mount) lenses.

This is the classic pentax ring flash for macro work. I"ve been the full circle with this. When I first got it, I had to use it on manual
because my flim camera (a K2) didn't support TTL. Then I got cameras that did, and now of course recent digital models no longer support TTL protocol so its back to manual mode which isn't all bad because the auto flash has a way of being wrong in macro mode anyway.

All of the equipment is used. Most purchased by me second hand some years ago. No, I'm not retiring from photography or dumping Pentax
to run off to some other brand. Rather, I have more auto focus lenses than I can carry, so these are showing a bit of external dust from non-use.

All will be shipped with rear lens caps---mostly generic ones. Alll have either a front filter or front lens cap except the 135mm. (don't panic its glass is perfect) but I haven't as yet found a cap for it. The front caps may or may not be originals except for the 15mm which has its original metal cap.


Paypal, and no need to lie and claim it's a gift.--or pay extra.

I'd love to sell them as a package, but considering how unlikely that is, I've listed separate prices.

My plan is to stick them in $12 flat rate post office boxes, and I'll put as many in the box as you buy so I want $12 bucks a box
on top of the price for postage.

Only in Manual mode. This is the old model introduced in the 1980's
and supported a manual mode (full power/ 1/2 power etc.)
and the "TTL" automatic flash mode. which was a method of flash automation
supported by Pentax until the introduction of digital cameras with the istD being the last camera that supported the the "TTL" flash automation.

On Edit: Actually Full and 1/4 power

Giving you a bump on the 35-70 f/4 lens. I have this lens and it is much better than expected. It is extremely sharp for a zoom.
