House Cleaning time! I am selling the following gear, priced to move:

SMC Pentax-DA 55-300mm lens, metal mount and hood - $200 plus shipping --> Now $179 shipped! SOLD
SMC Pentax ("K") 35mm f/2 lens, with B+W protective filter - $215 plus shipping --> Now $179 shipped! (domestic) --> SOLD

SMC Pentax-F 35-70mm f/3.5-4.5 lens - $40 plus shipping - Withdrawn
Pentax ZX-7 film SLR loaded with accessories - $30 plus shipping SOLD
Paillard-Bolex film camera with 2 YVAR Kern Paillard lenses, 36mm f/2.8 and 13mm f/1.9 - $30 plus shipping, but see below for notes on condition. SOLD
SMC Pentax-F 135mm f/2.8 lens - $325 plus shipping SOLD

Shipping $9 for one lens, $13 for two or more, in the US. The YVAR lenses I can ship for $5 if you don't want the camera as well, otherwise $13. The F 35-70 I can ship for $6. The ZX-7 kit I plan to throw in a Flat Rate Mail box for $18. International shipping is available, please ask about rates to your country. 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.

These are all good lenses, but I have too many lenses that I don't use. So now perhaps one or more can be yours. See comments below.

SMC Pentax-F 135mm f/2.8 - This is an awesome lens. Really sharp, nice colors, focuses closely, and relatively compact even if pretty solid. Deserves its stellar reputation, better in my book even than the K 135/2.5. My copy has seen plenty of use, as shown, and has some larger dust spots internally. Nothing that has ever affected picture taking, though, no haze or fungus. Comes with caps and has built in hood.

SMC Pentax DA 55-300mm - I held off a long time waiting for a WR version. Finally I bought this and a few months later the WR came out. Ah well. I've barely used it, and it looks and handles great. This is not the lower quality "L" version, it has a metal mount and hood. Also includes case and caps.

SMC Pentax "K" 35mm f/2 - this is a different optical formulation than the later 35/2 lenses, and has kinship with the legendary 28/2 from what I understand. It can be a little soft wide open but stopped down the sharpness and color are great. I preferred the look from this lens to the FA 35/2, for instance, and it is better than the DA 40 in my opinion as well, although much less convenient given the all manual operation. It has some external wear as you can see but glass is clear without fungus, haze or scratches. Includes caps and a B+W 52mm filter.
ETA: In testing it I discovered that it is somewhat prone to CA in high contrast situations, even stopped down. Not the greatest landscape lens, maybe, although very good for people and things.

SMC Pentax-F 35-70mm f/3.5-4.5 lens - charming little lens, good performance through all of it admittedly short range. Macro function at 70mm produces particularly nice results. In very good shape with only minor signs of use. Includes caps.

ZX-7 "kit" - no lens included but everything else you need for some fun with film. Fully functional ZX-7 body, the best AF film body in my eye. Can use all modes with all lenses, yet is light weight and relatively simple to operate. Includes battery pack FG, allowing the use of AA batteries. I got this "new old stock" in the box. Also an Acheiver TTL flash with AF boost - fully functional on this and also on my *ist DS, I got this new old stock as well. Dedicated cable release for ZX series. And a flash bracket, holster case, assorted Pentax literature, and about 20 rolls of expired film, including some TMAX 100 and some Velvia.I sold all my other film bodies but held on to this the longest; at this point it is time to admit I am done with film for now. But if you want to get started, this is a great kit.

Finally a Paillard-Bolex film movie camera. I have no idea if it works, but it looks cool. The lenses are why I bought it, to use on a Q with adapter. I will sell the lenses with or without the camera for the same price but less shipping as above. The 13mm lens works fine but has never swayed me away from the 01 lens on the Q. The 36mm lens came to me with stuck focus. :-( After a little work I've been able to get it focusing from 10 feet to infinity. Much more might be possible with CLA by someone who knows what they are doing. I am not going to mess with it anymore. But maybe you would like to!

First PM with full offer gets the item(s). If you want to offer less feel free, but those at the asking price get first priority. If you have any questions or need more photos, just let me know. Happy shopping! Nick

I think I will hold onto the F 35-70. Bolex Movie camera payment is pending.

Here are a few more pictures of the lenses (trying to figure how to show from Flickr with the new interface):

I found a screw-in metal hood and a 52mm --> K reversal ring to fit the K 35/2, so I will include those with it too!
