Item Description
1. SOLD SMC Pentax-M 1:1.4 50mm. $85 shipped and Paypaled.
I feel a bit ashamed to be selling this, but I recently acquired the A equivalent, and I'm not wealthy enough to keep the M around for sentimental reasons.. The M 50 f/1.4 was my first prime, and it opened my eyes to the possibilities of fast, quality glass. Be careful, if you've only ever used inexpensive zooms, this lens will spoil you, and it could set you on the path of LBA. I believe that it continues to be the best lens value available, dollar for quality. This copy is nice and sharp. Like all the f/1.4 50s, it's dreamy wide open (see the first photo below), but still quite sharp in the focal plane. There is the usual dust inside, though nothing big. No glass scratches. No fungus. Aperture works as new. Focus is smooth without play. There is some wear on the focus ring and the filter ring (visible in photos). Filters screw on like butter. Includes generic caps. Photos of the lens are at the end of the listing. Here are a few shots with the lens:










2. Vivitar Auto Thyristor 550FD $15 shipped & Paypaled.

This is a nice little flash in very good condition. Functionality is very basic. All I ever did was set it to A1 or A2, depending on the f-stop I was using, set the ISO, set the camera to x-syc, and shoot. The TTL setting doesn't work, and I have no idea what the M setting does. I'm not a lover of flash photography, but it's nice to have a flash on hand with an adjustable angle head for bouncing. I'm selling it because I got a more powerful flash with a swivel head. All the lens photos below were actually taken using this flash.
