Item Description
OK, let's get this out of the way up front - EACH one of these items has something wrong with it!! I'm selling the package AS IS - NO RETURN!

Here's the dirt:

Honeywell Pentax Spotmatic F - cosmetically it's in pretty good shape - spent most of it's life in an Everyready Case (included, but not pictured - in excellent condition). Battery compartment has been nuked - see close-up photo- I do have the battery compartment cover and it's fine. Shutter operation is inconsistant - sometimes it works as it should, sometimes it doesn't 'complete' the cycle - the mirror stays up. Flash circuit works, but can't test meter with no battery.

SMC Takumar 55mm f1.8 Lens - cosmetically in very good condition - some minor 'dings'. Focus is smooth - aperture ring is stiff, but properly detents - glass is clean and clear - aperture blades are clean, oil free, but slow to return to full open in "auto" setting. Comes with original Honeywell Pentax metal lens cap - no rear cap.

Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 135mm f3.5 Lens - cosmetically in pretty good condition - couple of minor dings and some rubbing - glass is clean and clear - focus is smooth - sperture ring is smooth and detents properly - however, the aperture blades are very slow to operate in "auto" setting - they do look to be clean and oil-free. It does have numbers engraved/scratched on the mounting ring. Comes with original Takumar rear cap and generic front cap.

Auto Sears/Sekor SX 55mm f1.4 Lens - cosmetically it doesn't look like it was ever used - great condition. Glass is clean and clear - aperture blades show some oil, but operate fairly well - a little slow on the return. Focus is smooth - aperture ring is smooth and detents properly. Comes with generic front and rear caps.

Soligor Wide-Auto 28mm f2.8 Lens - cosmetically it's in pretty good condition - some minor scuff and rub marks. Focus ring is smooth but quite stiff - aperture ring is smooth and detents properly - aperture blades are clean and oil-free and 'snappy". However, there's "something" on the edge of one of the internal lens - see photo. Comes with generic front and rear caps.

Telemax Auto Tele Lens - 200mm f3.5 Lens - cosmetically it's in very good condition - virtually no marks except for one on the edge of the built-in lens hood. Focus ring is smooth but a little stiff - aperture ring is smooth, but no detents - aperture blades appear to be clean and oil-free, but are sticky (don't always return to full open in 'auto' mode. I put some black electrical tape on the lens barrel to keep the built-in lens hood from randomly sliding in and out. On the lens mount, there's an area where the paint has been scraped off - I did this so it would work with the Pentax 1.7 AF TC (requires metal contact to operate). Comes with metal screw-on front and rear caps - original???

Asking $50.00 USD - PayPal only - shipping to CONUS and PayPal fees are included in the price (overseas will run quite a bit more).

And, one more time, every one of these has something wrong with it - PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTIONS! AS-IS - NO RETURN
