[SOLD] FS: Five Pentax Lenses plus Flash

Hi Folks!

I've accumulated several extra lenses that I'm now selling, and I'm selling them here because two have flaws that the audience here will understand ... and understand how to deal with:


-35-70mm, f4, Pentax A
Positives: Very good images, compact, metal construction, constant aperture.
Negatives: Focusing ring is too light for my taste. A bit worn.
Price: $50
Moved to eBay


- 18-55mm, f3.5-5.6 Pentax DA
Positives: Very light weight, versatile, good feel despite being a plastic lens, almost new.
Negatives: A bit slow, noticeable vignetting.
Price: $10
SOLD


- 50mm, f1.7 Pentax M
Positives: Back in the old days, this was my standard lens. Beautiful images, very fast, metal construction, excellent feel, very compact.
Negatives: Sticky aperture blades. (See KEH or Pentax for repair service.)
Price: $50
Moved to eBay


- 28mm, f2.8 Pentax M
Positives: Beautiful images, metal construction, reasonably fast, excellent feel, very compact.
Negatives: Sticky aperture blades. (See KEH or Pentax for repair service.)
Price: $50
Moved to eBay


- 28mm, f2.8 Pentax A
Positives: Beautiful images, metal construction, reasonably fast, excellent feel, excellent condition.
Negatives: None. I'm only selling because I have essentially the same lens in the auto-focus "F" version. Sigh.
Price: $150
SOLD

Also, I have a old Pentax AF-16 flash. It seems to have a loose or dirty switch contact and needs work. I'll sell it with any of the lenses for an extra $10.

Business matters: Shipping for any one or more lenses will be $10 to the U.S. or Canada. In other lands, contact me. PayPal payment is easy and quick, but I'll also accept a money order or cashier's check.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them here. I may not be able to address PMs as quickly.

Thanks!
Dave

$10 for the kit lens? That's like giving it away for free

Probably a typo ...

Nope. 10 bucks. I can't honestly ask for more than that, and it will be a good starter lens for some young photographer.

I'll take the 18-55 please. PM shortly.

I'm not a young starter, but I recently sold my 17-70 due to its size/weight and have been seriously looking for a 18-55 to replace.

See my PM for shipping to Australia.

For everyone... I will mark items "Sold" when I receive payment for the item and shipping. Thanks!
