cool m-focus zooms

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
cool m-focus zooms, Vivitar 2x Macro TC

Asking Price
80.00 USD

Item Location
Oregon (United States)

Item Description
I've finally developed a pattern for my gear: AF zooms, MF primes. This means letting go of some nice older gear, especially manual zooms. I like these very much, but recent purchases of 105, 200 and 300mm primes means they are expendable. I'd keep them for more tests as I haven't had them long, but two large dental bills are coming due real soon now Purchase more than one for shipping discount!



$40 - Quantaray (Sigma) 28-70mm f/2.8-4.0 zoom. It's small and light but definitely faster than kit lenses, and it's made for film and includes aperture ring with 'A' setting. It weighs 290 grams and has 7 aperture blades. It's a great carry-along when midrange images won't be a priority. Front & rear caps included. It's also a fun Q lens, though I feel it's not optically strong enough for the demands the Q puts on it.

Sold! Vivitar 2x Macro teleconverter with lens contacts. I'd like to keep this around, but the dentist wants hard cash.
Sold! adding back in my DA 50-200wr




$Gone - Sigma 75-250mm f/4-5 push-pull zoom. Very compact for the range, takes 52mm filters (a Hoya UV is included) and has a built-in shade.

$25 - JCPenney 80-200mm f/3.5 zoom. This is a real surprise and fun, but dense at 1030 grams; no worse than a 70-200 f/2.8 though! This has a rotating tripod collar and internal zoom so the lens grows very little. Takes 62mm filters and has a built-in shade, and 9 aperture blades. It does show some red fringing wide open on strong light-dark areas but a few clicks down it's pretty much gone. The zoom ring has a small amount of play but it does not affect anything. This is an M42 lens, a 3rd-party PK adapter comes along and both original caps.

The TC sold, Sigma was donated and the two 'fast' zooms will stick around. I will pull this and call it 'sold' as it needs to be called something...
