Pentax M and A lenses and 3rd party K mount - Price Reduction!

I have come to the conclusion that, with one or two exceptions, I do not use my manual focus lenses. I'm not very sympathetic about gear. This stuff is not being used and its time for it to go. I hope they go to folks who enjoy them for what they are or to those who want to experiment with primes without spending a lot of money.

Unless otherwise noted: each lens is in good condition, with glass and coatings free of scratches and blemishes, aperture blades oil free and snappy. All lenses contain small amount of dust consistent with their age. Mechanically in good shape. All lenses have scuffs and buffs noticeable under scrutiny, again, consistent with their age. All lenses come with front and rear caps and all Pentax lenses come with Pentax front caps, but cannot confirm that they are original.

Prices are in US$ and include ground shipping to North America & Paypal fees. The price you see is the price you pay.

Returns accepted if the lens is not as described.
SOLD First up, Pentax A 28mm f2.8. Purchased from Cheekygeek earlier this spring. I almost don't want to sell this one, as it is fun to use outside - f11 and be there so to speak. $105 -> $100 ->$95 -> $90 SOLD


Pentax A 50mm f1.7. Purchased on eBay in early spring. $85 -> $80 -> $75 -> $70 -> to eBay
Picture Removed due to being on eBay. - Went for $79 including shipping.

SOLD Pentax M 200mm f4. Purchased on ebay last summer. $90 -> $85 ->$80 ->$75 -> $70->$65 SOLD


SOLD Pentax M 50mm f1.7. Purchased on ebay last summer. $55 SOLD


HOLD Vivitar 135mm f2.8 in K Mount. Sharp and compact, the lens is in great shape. Focus collar gets a little stiff towards infinity - This is not the close focus lens. $60 ->$55 ->$50->$45 ->$40->$35 HOLD


Sears 300mm f5.6 in K Mount. What can I say, cheap telephoto. $45 ->$40->$35->$30->to eBay
Picture Removed due to being on eBay. - Went for $27 incl. shipping.

I'm gonna make this interesting. For each bump I make, I'm going to reduce the price of each lens by $5, until:

1. Someone buys it, or
2. The price goes too low and I transfer the lens to ebay - too low as defined by me.

First person to commit to making a paypal payment gets the lens.
