SMC "K" Lenses: 17mm f/4 fish eye, 50mm f1.4

SMC Pentax "K" 50mm f/1.4 lens - $99 NOW $79 plus shipping ($6 in US). SOLD
SMC Pentax K 17mm f/4 fish-eye lens - $249 plus shipping ($6 in US) SOLD

SMC Pentax "K" 28mm f/3.5 lens - $39 plus shipping but see below ($6 in US). SOLD
Kalimar 35-70mm f/2.8 zoom lens - $39 plus shipping ($8 in US). SOLD

Here are some classic old manual lenses with good reputations. I have too many lenses, though, and rarely use them - figure I might as well pass them on to someone who will get some mileage with them. International shipping is available, please ask about rates to your country. Free shipping on second (and third!) item if bought as a bundle. Lower offers will be considered, but full price offers will take them. I won't mark as a "gift" for customs purposes, sorry. PayPal is the preferred payment method although I will consider other methods if you strongly prefer. They can be returned if not as described for a full refund, but please read the description carefully and if you have specific concerns, please ask questions first.

The 50mm f/1.4 is in lovely shape, with minimal external signs of use and only slight internal dust but no scratches haze or fungus. Takes great pictures and is solidly built, with smooth manual operation. Many regard the "K" version as nicer than the more common M. Off brand caps are included.

The 28mm f/3.5 is also a well-respected lens, again thought better than the M version, and very well made. Unfortunately this one came to me with copious fungus behind the front element. I put it in the dry sun for several days to kill it, and then opened it up and cleaned it all off of the light path. Some tendrils remain around the front edge, and just aren't accessible to cleaning. I don't see any effects on optical performance, and I don't think it will grow further; still it is offered at considerably less than the usual price for these (about $150). No caps, but I will include a UV filter to protect the front.

The Kalimar is an unusual fast zoom from a third party lens maker. I couldn't find much on the web about them but what I could find was quite positive. Indeed the lens renders colors beautifully, and can be quite sharp too. It produces a slightly unusual "look" that I have a hard time describing. Plus it has a working "A" setting. much more convenient on digital. Includes rear cap, a short hood that takes the filter from 55 to 58mm, and a 58mm cap.

Ask any questions you might have, Thanks for looking and happy shopping!
Nick

PS Added the 17/4 fish eye lens for $249. It is in good shape with clear glass free of scratches, fungus or haze. I will get some pics of it up soon. Amazingly small for such a wide lens, and not too distorted on APS-c, although still definitely a fish eye. Includes a Pentax rear cap but a generic front one. Not the more common M42 Takumar version, and priced below the few K mount ones that have sold recently on eBay.
