FA 100mm macro, Vivitar Series 1 70-210mm ($$$ down)

Hello all,

I am selling my Pentax lenses. I found a good deal on a D7100 here in Japan and I'll be switching back to Nikon since I still own the glass.
All prices include shipping via USPS to the United States.
If you are located elsewhere, please contact me for shipping costs.
With the exception of the 18-135WR, I purchased these used.

1. Pentax FA 100mm F2.8 Macro
Exterior: 9/10
Optics: 10/10
Mechanical: 9/10
Price: $375 $350
Minimal usage marks on outside, no visible defects on glass inside.
Extremely sharp, no problems whatsoever.
Focus clamp doesn't hold as strong as I like it to, hence the 9/10 Mechanical.
Includes genuine Pentax front and rear caps. Filter is not included.

2. Pentax DA 70mm F2.4 Limited
Exterior: 9/10
Optics:10/10
Mechanical: 10/10
Price: $410 $385 SOLD
Pretty much flawless except for some usage marks on the outside around the focus ring.
Other than that, it is practically brand new.
Includes the genuine front and rear caps, original box, pouch, documentation, and the Kenko Pro1D 49mm filter/protector.
Pentax Forums lens review: 70mm Limited





3. Pentax DA 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 WR
Exterior: 10/10
Optics: 10/10
Mechanical: 10/10
Price: $375 $340 SOLD
Came with my K-30 as a kit. Practically brand new.
Includes front and rear lens caps, documentation, and lens hood. Filter is not included.
Pentax Forums lens review: 18-135mm WR






4. Vivitar Series 1 70-210mm F3.5 (version 2)
Exterior: 8/10
Optics: 8/10
Mechanical: 9/10
Price: $85 $70
Nice old-school glass, very smooth push/pull zoom operation.
Usual wear and tear for decades old glass on outside.
Small dust can be seen inside, but doesn't affect image quality.
Zoom creeps if you hold it pointed down.
Includes generic front and rear caps. No filter included.

I accept Paypal. If you buy this weekend, I will ship it out on Monday. Expect 7-10 business days for shipping to the United States. Please feel free to PM me with any questions whatsoever.

Your profile shows you as being in the United States, but in your ad you say you are shipping from Japan - which is it?

If you are shipping from Japan, how are you using USPS (United States Postal Service)?

I am interested in your DA 18-135, but don't understand these above discrepancies.

I'm in the military in Japan. My zip code is 96387 which registers as FPO/AP/United States, even though my physical location is different.
The postal service on base is USPS. All items I ship will go directly from Japan to San Francisco, then get to their respective location in the United States.
Hope this clears up any confusion. I can ship FedEx/DHL, but trust me, it's really not worth it (maybe $30-40 per item shipping).

I appreciate the clarification. There was an overseas seller here a few weeks back whom had some sketchy details kind of like this - ended up scamming a couple members here out of some serious money.

Thank you for explaining where you are and the details on how you will ship - I think this will help your sale as it will also put others at ease. I will PM you later about the lens.

No worries, I realize in retrospect how odd it must seem.
I can ship FedEx/DHL, but the prices are outrageous.
If I ship to the United States via USPS, the costs are the same as being stateside.
Everything is still available, and I'll be online for the next 4-5 hours, so please let me know if anyone is interested.

Just got my K-30 I purchased and the packaging was meticulous and the camera was exactly as described. Very happy
