[SOLD] FS: Pentax-F 28/2.8; Takumar 400/5.6; Takumar 500/4.5 - pics

***UPDATE - Going WalMart with the prices***

Before the details, I'd like to thank members of this forum who helped me originally acquire some of these lenses. It helped me a great deal in determining what and how I like to shoot. That said, these lenses were gently used and well cared for but I have settled on a telephoto I am happy with and wish to create funds for my K20D Details as follows -

Pentax-F 28mm f2.8 - excellent condition, clean, w/front and back caps - *SOLD*
Takumar 400mm f5.6 (m42) - excellent condition, clean, w/front and back caps, includes case (case age worn, but fully functional) - *SOLD*
Takumar 500mm f4.5 (m42) - excellent condition, some specs of dust can be seen inside (no effect on images) w/front and back caps, includes case (case has seen better days, but still guards the lens) - $495 obo


- Test shots using these lenses can be seen on my Flickr lens test page @ Collection: Lenses (tests & reviews)

- Some may note the K rear cap on the Tak 400. I forgot to remove my adaptor for the pic. I didn't plan on including it, but if it meant a sale, I'd consider to include it with either of the Taks for $40 (not for seperate sale). It is a genuine Pentax M42-K adaptor.

- The lens pic of the 500 has a lot going on in the glass. It is all reflections and halos from the pot lighting, sun and flash. There are no marks on the surface.

- Prices are ... North American... lol Really, US and CAD are par at the moment... take your pick.

- Buyer ships. Deals on bulk. International ok.

- EMT, PayPal (+4%) or DD accepted.

i got a K mount for the 500mm last year from pentaxUSA... even so you still have to use the lens in stopped down mode..

BTT - Teles still available, prices lowered and still OBO. I'll consider reasonable offers or sell immediately for the asking price.

Thanks all,
