[SOLD] Pentax 77/1.8 Limited, Tamron SP AF 14/2.8, Pentax-F 1.7x AF Teleconverter

I need to thin the collection a bit, so...

(My 77 Limited gallery is here.)
SMC Pentax-FA 77m f/1.8 Limited Lens (Silver), bought new from B&H in 2005, and looks in the same condition as when I got it. (Note there is a small smudge around the focus ring - the lens came that way new but I couldn't part with it to wait for another one.) Includes all the accessories that came with it, front and back caps, (p)leather carrying case, box, even the warranty card and booklet. This wasn't purchased under the rebate, so the UPC is still on the box. Sold!


(My Tamron 14mm gallery is here.)
Tamron SP AF 14mm f/2.8 Ashperical (IF) for Pentax-AF, bought new in 2005 or 2006. This is model 69EP, minimum focus distance of 0.20m (9 inches!) so you can do some neat things with it. It is a full-frame lens, fully usable on film bodies. The AF works just fine. There is a small blemish on the front lens, a hazard I guess of a lens with this big of a front element, but it doesn't effect the images in any way shape or form. Other than that it is as new. Comes with original caps, (p)leather bag, box, warranty card, and all documents. I'm asking $500 shipped including PayPal, any less and it isn't worth selling.

Also:
SMC Pentax-F 1.7x AF Adapter, this turns your manual focus lenses into auto-focus ones. (Yes, really, it does.) As long as your manual lens is f/4 or wider max aperture, this will act as a 1.7x teleconverter and make the lens auto-focus as well. Comes with Pentax front cap and Pentax rear cap. I noticed after buying it that there is some minor element separation around the edges of the rear element - this is outside of the optical path for digital lenses and doesn't impact the image or the AF function at all. It has stayed exactly the same since I bought it, so I suspect it is a manufacturing flaw that no one ever noticed (probably because it is hard to do so!) Because of that, SOLD!

I'll send detailed (and newer) pictures to anyone who is interested. I'll accept PayPal, cash, USPS Money Order. Feel free to pick up locally and I'll deduct the cost of USPS shipping. For International shipping, we can split the costs - I won't ship to some countries because of bad experiences with foreign postal services, so please ask.

I have a good selling reputation here and on eBay, so the transaction will go smoothly.

I'll get in line for the 1.7x adapter too (guess it's gone but just in case).

I'm replying to all PMs now - just a heads up to those who requested pictures (I sent them) the first response back of 'SOLD' is when the lens is sold. So a 'maybe' only puts you ahead of the other 'maybe's!

The 77 is now sold. I'll leave the Tamron for another day or so before either keeping it myself or putting it on eBay.

Thanks to all the queries so far!
