[SOLD] F 28 f/2.8, K 55 1.8, Vivitar 28mm WA, Vivitar 55 2.8 1-1 Macro, A 50 1.7, A 5

.

Once again I've come down with that 'gotta clean house' feeling. I just can't
use all my lenses within the available time I have for photography, and I know
there are others that could.

I think these are priced for a quick sale, so PM if you want to get in line -
I'll post pictures of/by the lenses later, so you can commit to buy contingent
on seeing photos if you'd like.

EDIT: Adding the following:

Super Takumar 55mm f/2........................................$45 + shipping (SALE PENDING)
Honywell Pentax body + Super Takumar 55mm f/2..................$45 + shipping
(The standalone Super Tak is in better shape than the one on the body, so the body + lens is
discounted)

Note: Buy the A 50 f/1.7 or f/2, Vivitar 28 f/2.5 Wide Angle, or Sears 135, and I'll throw
in a Vivitar 2X macro Focusing Teleconverter for an additional $15. Buy any two of those
lenses, and I'll throw it in for free! (GONE WITH A 50 1.7 sale)

Pentax F 28mm f/2.8........................$175 + shipping (SOLD)
Pentax K 55 1.8.................................$75 + shipping
Pentax A 50 1.7.................................$65 + shipping (SOLD)
Pentax A 50 2....................................$30 + shipping
Vivitar 28mm 2.5 W. Angle (m42).....$40 + shipping (SALE PENDING)
Sears M 135 2.8.................................$45 + shipping
Vivitar 55mm 2.8 1:1 Macro (m42).....$50 + shipping (SALE PENDING)


(Note to current and potential K-club members - I have two K 55 1.8's, both
near-mint - I'm selling the slightly better one )

The other lenses are in E shape and are nice to own, I just have alternatives
to them that I use a bit more, so they sit on the shelf.

The Vivitars are made by Kiron (28 f/2.5 Wide Angle) and Komine (55 f/2.8 1:1 Macro).
Kiron made the Viv Series 1 105 2.5 macro, and Komine made the Viv Series 1 70-210
3rd edition, two legendary lenses.

These are both m42 mount, which is why the price is lower - m42's tend to
be in less demand in general if they're not Super Takumars.

The A 50 1.7 needs no introduction, stopped down it's one of Pentax's sharpest
lenses. The shots you see there are wide open, except for the foam floor
toys, which was f/8.

Vivitar P/K 2X Macro TC!!!

.


Hot deal!

If anyone buys the A 50 1.7, A 50 2.0, Viv 28 wide angle, or Sears 135, I'll throw in a
Vivitar P/K 2X Macro Focusing Teleconverter for an additional $15. If you buy
any two of those lenses, I'll throw it in for free! (I'm not using it anymore, as I'm
set for macro.)

This allows you to make any lens go 1:1 macro - coupled with a fast 50, for example,
you'll get a 100mm f/2.8 macro lens. It also allows infinity focus, so you basically also
double the focal length of any lens.

I can post picture of it later, but it's in great shape. A thread about it can be found Here.

Vivitar f/2.5 Wide Angle shots

.


Shots taken today with the Vivitar/Kiron f/2.5 Wide Angle. This lens is worth more
than $40, but it has a serial number engraved on the barrel (see photos of lens)
which I think brings the value down, unfortunately. Apparently engraving SN's and
even the owner's SSN on lenses was the fave theft-prevention method back in the day.

A 50 f/2

.


Had a little fun shooting some test shots around the yard this evening with
the A 50 f/2:







The black smudges below are not on the sensor - they're bugs!

















You can get the A 50 f/2 cheaply because it's a common lens, not because
it's IQ isn't up to par!
