[SOLD] 3 Lenses M28/2.6, M75~150, VS1 7-0~210/3.5 v.2

PRICE REDUCTION - LAST CALL - THEY GO TO EBAY SUNDAY EVENING.

3 Lenses M28/2.8, M75~150, VS1 70~210/3.5 v.2
Sorry about the typo in the Title - its getting late.

Although I know I will regret this when the FF KxxD body is released, I'm clearing out lenses that don't get enough use. Each entry has a link to pictures of the lenses and each gallery includes a picture taken with the lens today, unaltered aside from crop and levels adjustment (WB indoors with mixed incandescent, fluorescent and flash is a B*&%$) in PS Elements.

All prices include USPS Priority Mail shipping (USA & Canada), insurance and PayPal fees.
PM me from other countries for additional shipping costs and we can work together.

#1 SMC Pentax M 28mm f/2.8 - SOLD

#2 - SMC Pentax M ZOOM 75~150 f/4 - REMOVED Price Reduced Saturday
Excellent cosmetic condition and glass. One tiny scuff on the upper edge of the zoom ring (1mm). Includes correct period caps and a M200/4 hard case (exact same length - fits perfectly).
This lens has been noted for its compactness and light weight, and for its near prime lens sharpness. I bought it on this Forum in another fit of LBA thinking I would perma-mount it to my MESuper. I like it, but I just never use it.

Your prices seem fair to me, and the price for the Vivitar seems too low If I didn't already have the Kiron version, I'd pick that one up.

The question is rhetorical - I was really asking whether anyone on this board needs/wants any of these lenses (particularly the M 75~150) before they go to eBay.

bdery - The Vivitar is actually priced correctly. It suffers from enough zoom creep that I have priced it as a horizontal-only lens. That is how I used it until I got the A version from jsherman999 last month. Buyers are getting this lens for the glass when used on a tripod.

Thanks gokenin - I think we all are rationalizing our lens bags at the same time. M28/2.8 is a really strange lens market. Sometimes there are dozens available and sometimes there are none. Lately there seem to have been few available. Prices seem to range from almost nothing to a lot of money. My opinion is this is a great small 28 for a few dollars. As all Pentax manuals, the CQ is wonderful. This one is in very good shape for being 20 +/- years old. I intentionally price on this Forum to let people have lenses affordably. My ebay policy is . . . different

Thanks for the comments,

Paul

I'd still price the VS1 around $50. I think I paid $80 for my VS1 s.3 with A, and honestly the exposure isn't great on A setting anyways. Optics are pretty much excellent on versions 1-3, and you're right, most people will use these on tripods.

Well, nobody seems interested even at this price, so off to ebay it goes - maybe $49 Buy it Now.

I actually have a really ugly copy of verison 1, this copy of version 2 with perfect glass and a "collector quality" copy of version 3. While I once might have been afraid to even take it out of the case, I now intend to drive it until I drop. Doesn't serve any purpose unless light passes through glass.

My first two were either ridden hard and put away wet by a pro shooter or owned by a goof who just didn't take care of them.

My Version 1 stays with me all the time. exposure is extremely easy with the K20D, and manual focus is a breeze if you trust the hexagon... which I do

I might at one point be interested in the version 3 with A, but your comment about innacurate exposure makes me think that it might not be that much useful. I think I'd rather keep the version 1 for its macro setting.
