[SOLD] Tokina 400mm f5.6 (MF), Pentax-A 50mm f1.7, Kiron 1.5x teleconverter

As the title says, I have for sale the following lenses:

Tokina 400mm f5.6 Manual Focus lens (K-Mount) - The SD version, which is much better than the RMC version (though inferior to the AT-X AF version). This lens has the A-setting for automatic metering and exposure.
The lens is in great condition, the only exception being a circular mark made in the coating of the front element, and several small clusters of light micro-scratching. These defects in no way effect picture quality, and are cosmetic only (well, there might be a slight effect shooting directly at a strong light source, I'm not sure). Otherwise, mechanical everything is great, aperture blades are snappy, etc. Two nice features of this lens are its sliding hood and its internal focus mechanism, which is priceless for a lens of this focal length. Comes with front and rear caps. I'm asking $170 + actual shipping (I'm estimating $12 to the US; $20 abroad).

Pentax-A 50mm f1.7 - Great copy of this lens, optics are clean, mechanics are good. The aperture ring functions without problem, unlike some other copies of this lens. Comes with rear cap only. $90 + actual shipping (I'm estimating $8 to the US; $15 abroad).

Kiron 1.5x Matchmate teleconverter - A high-quality 1.5x teleconverter, for KM mount (non A-functionality). In great condition. Comes with original leather case and the instruction booklets (I might have the box around somewhere, in which case it goes as well). $40 + actual shipping (I'm estimating $8 to the US; $15 abroad).

I also have a near-mint copy of the very rare Tokina (Bokina) 90mm 2.5 macro lens, in KM-mount, with mounting 1:1 converter, which I would consider trading for some combination of the Pentax-A 100mm f4 macro + KA-mount extension tubes. I'm not interested in the M-version, sorry.

I am also selling the Tokina 19-35mm f3.5-4.5 - better known as the plastic fantastic. Lens is in great condition (I just don't use zooms, which is why I decided to sell this). Everything works as it should, clean glass, snappy aperture. Auto-focus. Comes with front and rear caps and a hard leather Tokina case. $140 + actual shipping (I'm estimating $8 to the US; $15 abroad).

Also, I have perfect feedback on ebay and have handled many transactions here without any complaints.

Thanks for looking!

Oh yeah, pics to follow soon! I'll try to get them up tonight.

Re: the Tokina Macro - yes, it is the AT-X version (non-A). I think I will hold onto it for the time being, and play with it some more.

I also forgot that I am selling the Tokina 19-35mm f3.5-4.5 - the plastic fantastic... See above.

No, the 400mm is still for sale. I am thinking of hanging onto the Tokina 90mm macro, unless the right deal comes along. Thanks for looking!
