5 Lenses - Train to be a lens repair person. Price Drop!

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
5 Lenses - Train to be a lens repair person.

Asking Price
30.00 USD

Item Location
Austin, TX area (United States)

Item Description
Offering these as "training devices". Everyone of these lenses has some sort of problem/issue, however all of them are capable of taking a photo. The aperture blades are clean and 'snappy' on all of 'em, the f-stop settings work, and, except as noted, the glass is all clean and clear. No front caps included - 2 rear caps included.


Selling as a group only. $30 for all - shipping included to a CONUS address (overseas extra).


Vivitar 75-205mm f3.8 - small spot of fungus at the edge of one of the front elements, otherwise very good to excellent condition.


Sears 135mm f2.8 - excellent cosmetic condition, but for some reason the focusing ring will not turn to the infinity mark (won't go past the 10m mark)


Deitz Premium 70-210mm f3.5 - very good overall condition - with the exception of a small slice in the grip and the mounting ring assembly is loose. This is actualy a Ricoh mount (physically the same as a K-mount) and used to have the 'dreaded' Ricoh pin (has been removed).


Sigma 28-200mm f3.8-5.6 - decent condition, but obviously used. If the zoom ring is between 28 and 50mm, the focusing ring will not turn past the 8-9m mark. Once the zoom ring is turned past the 50mm mark, all works as it should. Glass is clean and clear with a snappy aperture.


Kiron 80-200mm f4.5 - quite a bit of internal dust and a slightly bent filter ring.


All, with the exception of the Sigma, are totally manual lenses - no "A" setting and no AF. The Sigma, of course has the "A" setting and AF.


Please understand, these are offered AS-IS, NO return.
