(The Stunning) A-50/2.8 macro *REDUCED AGAIN*

Selling some great gear to fund other purchases.

(SOLD ITEMS MOVED TO BOTTOM)


Pentax-A 50/2.8 macro - $200
As with the lenses above, really no issues whatsoever with this lens. In excellent condition in all regards. A great, compact macro for a very affordable price. A dream to MF. Comes with original rear cap and generic push-on front cap, no box or other accessories. Bought used here on PF, like the others. See pics below.

Pentax-DA 12-24 mm - $475 [SOLD]
In excellent condition, bought a few months back from another PF member. I've only used it a couple times for landscape shoots. The zoom range is fantastic for landscapes, and the IQ (particularly toward the wider end) is incredible, but I've decided I value a small, light kit very highly so I'm going to be seeking out a Da 15. This 12-24 is optically, mechanically, and aesthetically excellent with no issues whatsoever. No marks, scratches, fungus, oil, dings, etc. A few pics of and with the lens are linked below. I'm pricing lower than some 12-24 sold here because it doesn't come with any accessories (other than original front/rear caps), and doesn't come with a hood (buyer could easily purchase one if they so desired).

Pentax-FA 43 mm - $430 (SOLD)
Silver, AIV. Again, bought used here from another member several months ago. Excellent optical, mechanical, aesthetic condition. Glass perfect, aperture works as it should, no focus issues. Love this lens, but selling as I recently got a Zeiss 50/2 ZK Makro-Planar to cover this focal length. Comes with original front/rear caps, leather bag, but no box/manual. Pics of/with the lens below.

Marumi Super DHG 77 mm CPL filter - $60 [SOLD]
Only used a couple times with 12-24, in like new condition. Cheapest online price I can find for a new one is $75, so this is a 20% discount from that. Marumi makes excellent filters that are optically as good as or better than the "big boys" (Hoya, B+W, etc), but at a lower cost. They're all I use and they're excellent, I just don't have a use for this size anymore.


All items shipped via USPS Priority Mail (with insurance/tracking for lenses). Buyer pays $15 shipping (lenses) or $5 shipping (filter). Payment via Paypal. Buyer/seller split 3% Paypal fee. Please PM with interest/questions!

-Brandon

The 12-24 is the perfect range for around town, and one I always recommend to take in "those" threads. The bulk is mostly the lens hood :-)

Bump. For those not familiar, this is a compact, well-built, easily hand-holdable, dream-to-MF macro lens in a versatile focal length that takes absolutely crackin' images. Along with the other (FA, F) 50/2.8 macro lenses, it has been called by some the sharpest lenses ever produced by Pentax. Further examples can be seen here:

The A50 macro is as good as a fifty gets - yes f/2.8 but with all the positives that's barely a negative. Good stuff!
