[SOLD] Pentax SMC 28 f3.5 shift and Vivitar 135 f2.8 close focusing


I cant afford to keep these beauties that I dont use as frequently as I shoud

1) Pentax SMC 28 f3.5 shift: yes, they do exist and yes, they are expensive. It is in excelent ++ condition. It has only mild signs of use on the barrel. Glass is free of blemishes, only some speckles of dust that doesn affect at all the IQ. This lens comes with rear and front cap. The front cap is not the original but it fits well. This lens has built-in filters and preset aperture with ultrafancy star-shape blades. Price is 600USD net for me (reduced from 650). This price about 100-400 dolars cheaper that the ones that you can find on ebay.

2) Vivitar 135 f2.8 close-focusing: this is not the common vivitar 135 f2.8 telephoto that you find on ebay for 30USD. THis is a macro lens that allows 1:2 magnification. You can see here that I am not kidding (scroll down to the 135 f2.8 CF)Vivitar Series I by Robert Monaghan | Lenses, Lens, Series, Vivitar, Zoom | Manual Focus Lenses*-*Manual Focus Lenses. This lens is extremely hard to find. It is a K-mount (not A setting) copy in excellent ++ condition. THe glass is free of blemishes but there are some small coating bubbles that doesnt affect the image quality at all. SOLD

Low-balling will be politelly ignored. Payment will be throught paypal. You can choose another method (money order, check...) but that will delay the shipment. I ship worldwide but customs are up to the buyer. To make the things easier, the prices that I will post are net to me. That means that you have to include the shipping of your choice and add a 3% paypal if you are in the US or a 4% if you are outside the US

I only ship on saturdays since I cant leave the work during working hours.

There will not be "order preference" unless you have a firm interest. That means firm accepted offer. A firm low-ball is not a firm offer. With the offer you must tell when will you pay. I can hold the item for several days if it is needed (people who bought from me knows that I do) but I will only do it only if I am told when should I expect the payment. If you dont specify the moment of payment, you have a half day grace period to do it. If you dont do it, you loose the priority. Items will not be reserved to low posts-new members since it is the profile that gave me more problems in the past. You can buy but payment has to be fast.

I am sorry to be so picky with this but previous experience showed me that some people is not as serious as it should.

Thank you very much

Just a quick OT question, I'm afraid. What mount is the shift lens for? K-mount? It doesn't have an aperture actuation lever. I take it this means the lens has to be stopped down manually, nay?

Lens is like K- or M- lenses so you have to stop it down. The lens has a preset aperture control (aperture can be used "analogicaly" and or by stops via the preset ring). It has also the cool star shape blades and it also have the built in filters. The lens is wonderful and it is amazingly well built.
