Item Description
Well thinking about selling my magical Pentax-F 1.7 AFA adapter. You know the fairydust this thing has This one is in fantastic condition and when I bought it had been used sparingly since new. I love what this thing does, but not sure I really use it enough to warrant keeping it. Also have a Tokina 400mm 5.6 manual lens that for what it is does not do too badly. I added the tripod foot and it works well. Decent IQ when some contrast is applied in PP. I was able to autofocus once in a blue moon with the AFA 1.7, but only under extreme light! Also have a very used Pentax-F 35-70mm macro. Still takes great shots but has slight hazing and dust with a few small scratches thrown in for good measure. Sounds bad, but does good. I have two more of these and frankly I think was the best kit lens ever. Lastly is a Pentax-A 28mm 2.8. Everybody knows this classic, common but still good anyway. This one is good optically but does have a ding in the filter thread. It does however accept a filter with no problem. Honestly all of these could be thrown back in my extra bag and would get used again at some point, but I figure I'll offer them here. I am really kind of looking to trade towards a Pentax Q kit, Sony Nex lenses and accessories, or possibly other lens. As far as selling goes the following are what I am looking for. Shipping is free in the lower 48 and I only ship to the continental USA.

Pentax-F AFA 1.7 $285 Traded for a Q
Tokina 400mm $75
Pentax-F 35-70mm $35
Pentax-A 28mm $45 Sold



I would sell the 400mm and the 35-70mm for $75 shipped!!

Second time I've heard "fairy dust" used to describe this teleconverter. Please describe "fairy dust" to neophyte.

Well that's easy. When you use it fairydust is scattered everywhere and all your photos become award winning. I really should be asking $1000

If you are planning to buy a Q, you should really be keeping your 400mm and putting that on the Q for some very interesting 2,000mm + equiv. focal length photography. You know you want to

Bump and reduced price for last two lens $75 shipped for both, although I like NZ_ROSS thinking on throwing the 400 on the Q, dang that's a lot of reach
