I have withdrawn the Tamron 03B 135mm f/2.5.

[update] I manage to dismantle the rear part of the lens and clean the last piece of glass, the two tiny white spots are likely dirt, it is all good and I will keep it for backup or a gift to family -- it is my beloved 135.

Cheers,
Hin

The Pentax FA 28-105mm f/3.2-4.5 is a good travelling zoom. It is quite small in size. When I first bought my first Pentax digital body, I bought this zoom and paired it with a wide prime like 15mm, 20mm, 21mm or 24mm and have two lens for traveling light.

For the Industar 50-2 50mm f/3.5, you can search images on flickr

https://www.flickr.com/search/?text=Industar%2050-2&sort=interestingness-desc

and you will be surprised how this pancake work with good characters.


My price is higher than the usual you find in eBay but mine includes the setup with step up ring and matching vented lens hood. You are buying from someone who likes to beautify lens with the extra's. And this pancake got my attention. I just happen to have hoard of lenses and some have to go to a better home.





And there is a matching cap on top of the hood not shown in the picture.

This is M42 mounted lens that can be used on K-mount with the m42 adapter.

Previous buyer has asked about the Industar 50-2 50mm f/3.5 with interest. And I have sent my invoice to a good friend -- all of my buyers are my good friends. But the other two available lenses need a new owner as well. The zoom with Pentax FA 28-105mm f/3.2-4.5 is a good zoom and what I listed here is my 2nd copy. I used it quite a bit in traveling. The following were shot with my 1st copy of this zoom and my K100D way back in 2008 where I began my Pentaxian path.


Regards,
Hin

The Industar-69 28mm f/2.8 in L39 mount is a cute pancake and works reasonably well on aps-c.

Aperture ring is in the front of the lens. I am looking for a solution for a lens hood and this lens may become a better street shooter in b&w. And I just found out the filter size from this blog post

Industar-69 28mm f/2.8 -

I shot the following in b&w creative with 5N in about f/10. In b&w mode, the peaking focus will help even in strong lit afternoon sun against the LCD. When I shot the following, I was not able to see detail on my LCD because of the Sun and I don't have EVF on my 5N.

I may over-do the processing with Red Hi-Contrast filter on LR.

I want to find the right lens hood so that I can try improving the contrast. When using this lens for color shot, there are scenes that this lens will come up oddly with low contrast and bokeh is not its strength. Size, form factor and ease of use with exception on the aperture selection make up the fondness of this pancake for the budget minded.

I cleaned up my Industar 50-2 50mm f/3.5 in M42 mount. The lens still has quite a bit of internal dust. A few product shots on the small pancake.
