Bargain Manual Lenses!

I have a few manual lenses that I've acquired that I have no means to keep because I don't have the space and the focal lengths I already have covered by other lenses that I like better.

I would prefer not to ship international, all prices are listed with PP fees included + US shipping.

The more items you take, the better deal I can make!

So, here it goes:

Vivitar 28mm f/2.8 MC Wide Angle (M version) - $22 (+$5 shipping)
Overall, the lens looks in pretty good condition inside and out. The exterior conditon is actually very nice- I can't point out any flaws there. The inside is quite clean with the exception of a few stray dust particles here and there; which is expected for a lens this age. On the rear element; however; there was a (greasy?) fingerprint when I got the lens, for the most part I was able to get it off with lens cleaner, there is just a tiny bit of the fingerprint left toward the edge. The only way I noticed it was when I looked the lens over under a very strong light. Comes with front and rear caps.

SMC Pentax-M 28mm f/3.5 - $50 (+$5 shipping)
One very teeny tiny mark/scratch on front of glass, does not effect images. Otherwise, very good condition with very minimal wear.
Comes with Pentax front and rear caps.

Super Albinar MC Auto Zoom 38-70mm f/3.5 (M version) - $10 (+$5 shipping)
Overall, exterior looks in okay condition, a little wear and rubbing on the focus ring. This lens has some reflective spots, which I thought were dust at first, which are probably an early sign of fungus?

SMC Pentax-M 50mm f/2 (M version) - $10 (+$5 shipping)
Overall, exterior looks in okay condition- nothing super major, just some rubbing on aperture ring. Glass looks clean of fungus/haze/ect, has a few stray dust particles. Sounds like something may be loose when lens is shaken hard.

SMC Pentax-A 50 f/2 - $8 (+$5 shipping)
Lens are for parts/repairs. Aperture ring is stuck; cannot be moved. Aperture blades are closed at f/22.
Build and glass is fine.

RMC Tokina 80-200mm f/4 - $16 (+$5 shipping)
Exterior of the lens looks very nice. Glass is exceptionally clean- only problem is that the back of the first element (or maybe second element) from the front, someone tried opening the lens up and cleaning it inside, because when examined closely under a bright light, looks like someone used circular cleaning movements and left some cleaning marks. Comes with front and rear caps.

Super Albinar MC Auto Zoom 80-205mm f/4.5 - $16 (+$5 shipping)
Exterior looks nice, glass looks clean. Only problem is that there sounds like something is loose when you shake the lens hard.

CPC Multi-Coated Auto Tele Converter - $8 (+$5 shipping)

Clean exterior and clean interior.

Focal MC 2x Converter - FREE (+$5 shipping)

Clean exterior and interior. Sounds like something is loose inside, lens release lever is hard to press down.
