[SOLD] FS: 4 and a half lenses

I have a number of items for sale this time. All are in excellent fully operational condition. Everything is scratch free, no fungus, yellowing, or otherwise optically flawed. Every single lens listed has a snappy aperature and smooth focus. Specifics are listed for each item. I will combine shipping if more than one item is purchased:

Pentax K 24mm f2.8 prime lens Now $190
- Very good condition, just a bit of wear. More info can be obtained here

Pentax M 50mm f1.4 prime lens SOLD - Mint condition. Really clean. Almost no wear. Fastest lens you can get without spending a small fortune. Original rear cap plus skylight filter included, no front cap. More info can be obtained here: Will include a excellent condition vivitar collapsible rubber hood for an extra $5 (I highly recommend hoods on these).

Tokina 35-300mm f4.5-6.7 Autofocus Superzoom lens with matching close-up attachment SOLD
- Excellent condition. Close-up attachment is new, allows close focusing of ~4 ft. Takes very decent pictures especially at the short end. I can provide full sized samples to anyone interested (PLEASE PROVIDE EMAIL). It is fully autofocus and works well with both K100D and K10D (tested on both). It is an excellent general purpose daytime "walkabout" lens. This is a full frame lens and it benefits from sweet spot behavior (no vignetting). It is not a "plastic fantastic" lens and has high quality full metal construction, as such, it does have heft. Includes generic front and rear caps. You can see pictures of the lens here:

Vivitar 2x "A" Type Teleconverter SOLD - This teleconverter allows use of the "A" setting on "A" lenses (it passes the info through). Very useful on macros if you want a little more reach but don't mind the loss of a bit of light. Includes case.

Pentax M 50mm f1.7 SOLD - Little brother to the f1.4. I make no secret of the fact that I love the f1.7's (I've written enough reviews about them). They are the sharpest lenses wide open. I have sold many of these. This one is also in great shape. Great starter lens for anyone who wants to try their hand at manual focusing but doesn't want to compromise on quality (or spend a lot of money). Sorry only rear cap, no front cap with this one, but I will throw in a scratch free filter for protection.

Shipping in the US is $10 for one item or all of them.
Shipping international is $30 for one item or all of them.

Insurance is included in shipping price.

I have great reviews on this forum and 100% on ebay.

Status Update

The Tokina 35-300mm and the Pentax K 24mm are still available. The others are gone.

The Tokina is a great deal. Unlike most super-zooms, it does very well at the wide end. It isn't a fast lens, but for outdoors during the day, it works great. Also, for people who miss metal construction, this lens is for you. It is really well built and my sample has no lens creep.
It also has a zoom lock at 35mm to lock the lens at its shortest position. (It is actually physically a relatively short lens given the focal range).

I doubt anyone can find an Autofocus 300mm zoom lens with an ED element at this price.
