Item Description

Reluctantly releasing two lenses back into the wild. Like them both quite a lot but will manage for a few months until I can restock.



∙ $145 Pentax D FA50 macro
This really is my ideal macro, and I've tried everything else (except Sigma 70 and Pentax 100 AF). Quick shift is super valuable on a macro, optics are excellent (see Forum reviews or photozone about that) and it's a great prime for non-macro use too. The design is curious with clamp instead of limiter, but that's really no big deal as it feels to me like a faster focus than other AF macros that I've tried. No hood but both caps are included. Aperture ring and full 3624mm coverage for the patient

∙ $105 Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8-4.5 DC OS HSM
I like this lens for a few reasons. Its aperture is pretty fast, all zooming and focus is internal so it's always the same size, and it has OS inbuilt so I don't need to use 'fake' SR for video use. The Sigma HSM is quick and silent to focus - and it's valuable to me that the zoom ring rotation matches Pentax zooms, unlike their 17-50 and 18-50 f/2.8 variants that zoom in the opposite direction! This lens is discontinued but well liked by forum users.

It takes 67mm filters and is in like-new condition, with hood and both end caps. Sorry, APSc sensors only or the mythical 'crop mode' with this one
