[SOLD] 2 Macro's Lester a Dine 105mm kit, Pentax-A 50mm

I have 2 very sought after Macro Primes for sale. Both in Great Condition.

1. Lester A. Dine 105mm f/2.8 Macro Dental Kit. This isn't just the lens but the whole kit as sold by Dine Corp. It all comes in a solid black carry case with fitted foam. Included is the Lester A. Dine 105mm Macro lens, Dine Macro ring flash, Pentax ZX-50 film slr camera with manual, neck strap and all lens and body caps.

The entire kit is in absolutely excellent condition with very little to no signs of use or wear.
The lens is mark free with no scratches. All glass is perfect with the coating intact. The aperture blades are oil free and move freely. I have used this lens a few times on my K200d with great results and no issues.
The Macro ring flash I have measured the trigger voltage at about 4.3volts. I tested it on my camera as fully functioning and safe.
The camera I have not tested, but it is in like new condition and I can see no reason why it won't work.
It was a hard decision to sell this as it is in truly great condition. Only the fact that I now also have a Vivitar Series 1 105mm led me to sell this.

Asking $475 plus shipping. SOLD






2. Pentax-A 50mm 1:2.8 Macro SMC. This lens is in EX+ condition. The glass is scratch free with the SMC coating in great condition. There is a little dust inside the lens but I have not found it to affect IQ at all. The only wear showing is a few small marks on the aperture ring(shown below). The aperture blades are oil free and snappy. The images I've taken with this are sharp from 2.8 up. This is an excellent example of this highly rated lens.

Asking $175 plus shipping




I can provide more images on request and am happy to answer any questions.
I will give priority to anyone who may wish to purchase both lenses.
I can accept payment by paypal.

You are selling fine equipment.
But perhaps splitting the Lester A Dine macro from the macro flash and ZX-50 may help.
Shipping is the biggest concern there...

I think that is the issue since your price is more than fair, IMO. I have never seen this kit come up for sale before, so it would be a shame to split it. If I lived locally I'd buy it, even though I already have the Vivi 105mm.

Thanks for the input all.

Even though the the Dine kit may seem big it is not. I do not think shipping will be too expensive at all, the kit case is under 14"x12"x6" and weighs less than 6 pounds. Do the shipping calculation yourself from 80016.

Don't forget it all fits nicely in the fitted foam case so it will be well protected in transit. I do not want to split this kit up. I will keep it before I do that.

I don't see why the shipping would be much of a factor either. Its a beautiful set and you should never split it up. Just my opinion.
Wish I had the money to go that direction but I already have macro covered and I am concentrating on portrait and a fast 200mm range.

Is this the exact same lens as Viv S1?
