Helios 58/2 With M42 to K adapter

Hellios 44-2 58/2 Lens with M42 to K mount - I bought this because of its reputation for swirly bokeh and people said it was one of the best portrait lenses. I bought it the same time as I did my DA 55 1.4 and thought if it is better I will keep it instead of the DA 55. It wasn't, in my opinion, even close, but it does has very unique properties. The mount is already on for the K mount. It is one of the inexpensive ones, but I took the spring out of it and I have not had any mounting problems. Works just fine.
$50 - $40 shipped in US

Pentax K-5 - This thing is in excellent condition. Fires great, responsive, takes excellent quality pictures. It has a few tiny scratches in the screen and also on top near the flash mount. The top scratches are barely noticeable, and the ones on the screen aren't seen unless you tilt the screen to see it. Comes with original box and original everything - 8900 Shutter Clicks
/$535 Shipped to US addresses. International with good feedback PM for price.

SOLD
Pentax DA 18-55 WR - Excellent condition. I just don't use it much as I am a portrait photographer. I wanted a WR lens, I bought this, then ended up getting the DA* 55 and didn't have a need for it. I am selling it to help fund the cost of my Tamron 17-50. Glass and body are almost perfect. Comes with hood, rear hard Pentax Japan cap, and a Hoya HMC UV (O) filter.
$105 shipped US

SOLD

Tamron 90 2.5 Macro 1:2 - This is a very clean Adaptall lens. It's glass is clean except a little dust on the inside. This is an excellent portrait lens/macro (as Tamron marketed it as). The plus to this one compared to the newer 90 2.8 is that it is a hint softer wide open. That isn't an advantage in macro, but it is in portraits. Smooth, long focus. Very precise lens, and comes with the Manual Aperture K/M Adaptall mount, original hood, and Hoya HMC UV(O) filter. Excellent condition, beautiful performer.
$85 shipped in US
SOLD

Pentax O-Me53 Eyepiece - Great condition. I didn't use it much as I didn't do a lot of macro work. Helpful for catching details.
$30 shipped in US
. SOLD

Pentax small camera bag - I've had this a long time. It is clean and in great condition. It is a great bag for a K-5 and an 18-55 WR or a prime.
$ 25 shipped in US or free if you buy both the K-5 and 18-55 together.
SOLD

I accept Paypal as payment. If there is an issue with the equipment I will accept refund if it arrives in less than described condition. International shipping is available to those who pay extra for shipping and have positive feedback on the forum.

PM if interested. Thanks.

Tamron Macro and eyepiece sold. $600 for the pair of the k5 and the 18-55 WR lens. That is a good initial setup on an awesome camera.

K-5 + 18-55 WR is SOLD. Thanks Zach!

I guess 6 years is long enough to wait to upgrade my K100D, something to fill the gap until bigger and better things from PENTAX hit the market. Was tempted to get a Black K50 with yellow or aqua grip though.
