Pentax DFA 100mm Macro WR, Novoflex mini-tripod

Two items for sale, at relative bargain prices.

Pentax DFA 100mm Macro WR - $450
The "built like a Limited" model, with quick-shift focus clutch and weather sealing. Glass is in excellent condition, but this lens is bargain priced because there is a dent in the metal body near the lensmount. I have no idea how it happened, since it's never been dropped and usually stored in my gear bag, but it is there (and I've lit the photos to make it obvious). As far as I can tell, it should not impact the weather sealing, since the red seal is undisturbed and the lensmount itself is undamaged. Mounts, shoots, and performs flawlessly! Includes the hood, both original caps, and the Pentax S80-120 lens pouch, but no box or papers.

Novoflex BasicBall Blue - $75
Bought this on closeout from a local retailer as "new-in-box" but there are two tiny scratches on the finish of one leg. Otherwise, it appears totally unused. I've had a silver one of these for 8 years, and have shot hundreds of tabletop panoramas with it supporting a DSLR on a big panorama head - it is basically bombproof. Novoflex states it will hold 55 lbs, and I don't doubt it. Made of stainless steel and anodized aluminum, it will outlast and outperform any other "mini tripod" that is close to it's size. Minimum height is 70mm (2.4"), and maximum height is 210mm (8.3"), and it can also be used as a duopod or chest-pod for video work. I will include a 1/4" - 3/8" thread adapter (not shown) for use with larger ball heads, etc. Includes box, papers, etc.

Right now I will ship only to continental North America. Insured, trackable shipping is $10 within Canada, and is $25 to the US or Mexico. (APO/FPO's included)

Payment via Paypal (and none of that lazy "net to me" stuff, either - I build the fees into my asking price).

PM me if you're interested!

Ooooh... 8 days, lots of requests for more details, but no firm buyers yet! The mini-tripod is a great companion to any macro setup as well!
