[SOLD] FS: items for funding K10D

I committed the every buyers' newbie mistakes with LBA in loading up too much inexpensive gear too fast and I have a hard time to enjoy photography, let alone any desire for better gear and upgrade. I need fund for my K10D upgrade from K100D plus lens consolidation under way.

Please buy with confidence and check my feedbacks. I sell only good gear and I take pride in having good feedbacks and make friends on the net with others. The friendship and common bonds in passion is next best thing to photography.

[SOLD]
1. Pentax SMC-A 50 f/2.0 ($35 + shipping)
mint copy from head to toe: 9/10 in glass and cosmetic, least wear & tear

[SOLD] 2. Vivitar 70-210 Macro f/4.5 ($35 + shipping)
mint copy but I have to grind off the flange to fit KAF2 mount: 9/10 otherwise in glass and cosmetic, with the flange grind off, I give 7/10, picture to follow

[SOLD] 3. Vivitar "Series 1" 70-210 Macro f/3.5 ($63 lens only, +$12 lens case + shipping)
mint copy with 8/10 cosmetic and glass, a bit heavy, 1st version of Series 1 with 1:2.2 macro + beautiful lens case

[SOLD] 4. Albinar 28mm f/2.8 Macro ($35 + shipping)
mint copy with 8/10 condition, a wide angle with great 1:2.5 Macro, can't confirm on Macro but I saw marking of at least 1:4 on lens barrel and I read 1:2.5 from other sellers in eBay (can't confirm if it is truly 1:2.5)

[SOLD] 5. Kalimar 80-200 f/3.9 ($0 + shipping)
mint copy like new: 9/10 in cosmetic and glass, macro is 1:5

[SOLD] 6. Helios 44 58mm f/2.0 in M42 ($25 + shipping)

My blog mentioned in NYTimes today

My Picasa tutorial just get noted in NYtimes and I get many visitors to my blog that I have not updated frequently. I buy too much gear and I have less time with learning and sharing my learning with others. I should have spent my time more focused on learning instead of gear hunting

My article in link titled with techtheman blog page
Learning How to Use Picasa - New York Times

My Picasa demo page noted in NYTimes:
Picasa Tutorials - Hin's Tech Corner

And with the K20D/K200D, I want my K10D bad as I am more than ready to jump but my funds is lacking.

Thanks,
Hin

Hi Hin, I will take the A50mm

congrats on the NY times mention... did you get slammed after the link was posted?

So you are getting the K10? At 509 after rebate, it seems like too good of a deal to pass up. Your are keeping your K100d? I think if I do the K10, I will keep my k100 for the ISO 1600 and 3200 pinch shooting....

Good luck with your sale.
I will PM you on the A 50.

[SOLD] About the Albinar 28mm f/2.8

Three lens are sale pending to three different individuals. Thank you guys. And I have updated the list to reflect current state.

An article that I wrote about the Albina, I love the wider angle in the lens which takes great macro:


Albinar 28mm f/2.8 manual lens in K mount
Albinar 28mm f/2.8 Macro Test Shots - Hin's Tech Corner







hand-held with single hand,
I shoot my own hand and hence the blur




The best lens in the batch that I will miss is the Albinar which I really find a good lens with 28mm wide angle and a fast speed at f/2.8. I especially like the lens for its handy close up work with roughly half a foot close up and I do most of my product shot of previous sold items with this lens. The lens is in pristine condition and I have replaced the canon lens cap that I got on the lens with a compatible lens cap. The only cons on the lens is that it does not have a 'A' on aperture ring, one has to do stop down metering on M mode. Similar recent item in ebay got bid up to $61 Albinar ADG 28mm 1:2.8 Macro lens for Pentax K1000 SLR - eBay (item 160201681844 end time Jan-27-08 17:42:37 PST)

[SOLD] Pictures of Vivitar Series 1 70-210 Macro f/3.5


Please take me home


Previous owner kept it in pristine condition






This lens is a Vivitar series 1 lens and the only reason that I sell it is due to its heavy weight; otherwise, this is the best 70-210 that I have in my possession. It does NOT have 'A' setting and I count this as a cons in my possession but the price is very reasonable for one to appreciate good old lens that is masculine and I am very sure that you won't be disappointed if you enjoy old lens. Lens cap + a beautiful lens case. This is the version 1 of Vivitar Series 1 lens as mentioned in Vivitar 70-210 Series 1 Macro Zooms - Mark Roberts Photography

[SOLD] Pictures of Kalimar 80-200 f/3.9


Lens does look brand new to me


Bower M42 adapter mounted (not for free)




Bower M42 adapter mounted (not for free)


Case not for free


The lens is in M42 mount. Since the lens base is quite big, I find this a prime candidate in a converted K lens with a M42 adapter. The lens and barrel is in pristine condition as the previous owner kept it nicely in an Kalimar original case. Lens comes with front and rear caps. A Tiffen 55mm haze filter is provided with this lens.

Thanks,
Hin

Hey maybe I can go to the race. I work most weekends so give me the date and time, and I will see if I can make it. If not maybe I could loan you my 70-300. You might have to come into SF to get it. But it is not far off of the bridge.

If the date does not work for me, then we can figure out how to get you the tamron. At least then you have a chance to try it out before you buy it...

[SOLD] Pictures of Vivitar 70-210 f/4.5


Like new, very small & compact 70-210







And I have used the dremel tool to perform the alternation needed to fit any Pentax digital mount with the flange grind to fit. Workmanship is guaranteed as I removed the base plate to do the needed grinding.





I will smooth off the scratch marks. The shinny edge has been darkened.





I have not used this lens yet but I like its small size and weight. It is like NEW and it goes wonderfully with a manual body such as Pentax P5 and Pentax Super Program film bodies. It is the smallest 70-210 that I possess. I got it for about $47.00 after shipping. And the original lens won't work in K100D/k10D digital bodies with KAF2 mount, but it only works in K1000 and my p5 and super program bodies. It is darn cute manual lens to be used in manual bodies. And I have grind off the flange to work with all K bodies with a dremel tool -- I am proud!!!! The Macro is not known on barrel but it has some weird marking of M:R followed by 1.1 in the lens barrel as shown in pictures above. It can't be the macro ratio of 1:1.1, it is more likely 1.1 feet as the closest focal distance.
