SMC Pentax M 50mm F1.4 price drop

Hi everyone! The end of the month draws near, so, rent and bills will soon be due. I went on a bit of a shopping spree on lenses so I'm going to be lightening the load for the next week or so. All prices include Priority shipping and PayPal fees already included so we won't have to hassle ourselves with the math. I'm really uncomfortable shipping lenses with anything slower so I don't mind footing the bill for a faster service These all include generic front/back caps. International shipping will be calculated and the buyer will cover the shipping and I will cover insurance, confirmation and tracking in this circumstance.

Up first is an SMC Pentax M 50mm F1.4 lens. It is in excellent condition with a little wear on the focus ring and a little internal dusting. The glass looks fabulous, aperture ring clicks where it's supposed to and the blades are dry and snappy. $110 $90 $85 $80 $75

Up next is an SMC Pentax F 70-210 F4.0-5.6. It is in excellent shape with very little internal dust. Focus and aperture ring move smoothly, auto focus sounds like a lawn mower and all pictures come out nice and crisp. Comes with a UV haze filter. $100 $85 sold

I'm adding in my Tamron AF 28-80 F3.5-5.6 Aspherical. It is in excellent shape with very little signs of wear and very little internal dust (if any). Focus ring is smooth and aperture clicks where it should. Blades are dry and snappy. It gives you a little more reach at the cost of losing some of the wider end compared to the standard kit. As far as I can tell, the IQ is similar to the standard kit lens (The 18-55 DA AL). Included with it is the pictured 58mm UV filter, original hood and snazzy rubber hood. $50 $30 sold

I did some price research in the sold listings of the Marketplace as well as getting an average from the lens review database to put out prices I felt are fair for us both. If you do have more questions, feel free to contact me.

Thanks for looking!

Bump for new lens added. I'll be taking pictures and listing an SMC Pentax-DA 50-200mm F4-5.6 ED as well fairly soon.

I'd recommend starting a separate thread for that lens, as it'll get you more views and better searchability.

Thanks Adam. I wasn't sure what the proper etiquette would be for multiple thread listings in the market. I didn't want to flood the front page.

You're free to have as many threads as you like, we generally ask that you don't bump more than two at a time, but apart from that there really is no limit.
