Rikenons: XR 70-150mm f/4 & P 28mm f/2.8 Marketplace Listing

Rikenons: XR 70-150mm f/4 & P 28mm f/2.8

Asking Price
75 USD

Item Location
Oregon (United States)

Item Description
I retired on June 1st, and July will see neither paycheck nor pension-check so here go a few favorites.

Rikenon XR 70-150mm f/4 and Rikenon-P 28mm f/2.8 - $75 for the pair

It's hard to let these two go as I have created some great images using these - but keeping home and car payments timely is more important. These are both fully-manual lenses with no electronic contacts for exchanging exposure data with the camera.

The 70-150 is a great two-touch zoom with 1:4ish 'macro' abilities at 70mm, eight aperture blades and internal zoom so the lens barely changes size when focusing. It is in excellent condition and still has the 'inspected' oval gummy patch where the label finally fell off, and comes with a solid Ricoh case. Also has a built-in shade and takes 52mm filters. Gosh I wish someone made a modern one of these!

This price also includes the Rikenon-P 28mm f/2.8, also in excellent condition. It has the 'P' pin but it's very slight and has not gotten stuck in the AF pin like some other Ricoh P lenses. I like this because it can focus from infinity to about a foot from the sensor in 1/4 turn of the focus ring, so it's as fast as AF for me to lock down focus. I've always liked the results from this lens, although in tests with the SMC-A 24mm it does have a slight amber/yellow cast even in Auto WB. This lens also takes 52mm filters and comes with original front cap and generic rear twist-cap. Good grief, the 28 still has the 'passed' oval sticker attached!
