[SOLD] Massive LBA recovery sale! 11 items.

After buying a lot of lenses, and having a lot of fun playing with them, I’ve managed to determine what lenses best suite my shooting style and needs. I don’t think I’ve kicked the habit yet but I’ve decided to wean myself off and sell the lenses that I won’t be regularly putting in my bag. I’ve tested all of these lenses and have found no problems with IQ or mechanical handling.

I’ve described each as honestly and as accurately as I can. All lenses are fungus free with snappy, oil free aperture blades. Please feel free to ask me questions about any of the lenses and I can provide more images on request. Whatever I don’t sell here will end up on ebay, but I wanted to give first chance to the great people of this forum. I will ship international and prices do not include shipping. Paypal or Google Checkout. Thanks for looking.

1. Vivitar 24mm 1:2.8 MC Wide angle
This lens has the A setting for full feature use and is virtually mint condition. There are no marks on the body and the lens is scratch free with the multi coating un-marred. It does not say close focus but it may as well be with a minimum focusing distance of less than 20cm. Included is a Vivitar VMC Skylight 1A filter.
Asking USD$60 SOLD




2. Pentax-A SMC 1:1.4 50mm
In pristine condition with little to no wear at all. Glass is scratch free with SMC fully intact. A great fast lens. Included is a izumar coated 1A filter.
Asking USD$130 SOLD




3. Pentax-A SMC 28mm 1:2.8
Another lens in great condition. Shows only the slightest of wear around the aperture ring. Glass and SMC are flawless.
Asking USD$60 SOLD




4.Pentax-F 50mm 1:1.7
Shows some wear on the body, but the glass and SMC are perfect. A very sharp 50mm with auto focus in great working condition. Includes Hoya UV filter.
Asking USD$120 SOLD

5. Vivitar Series 1 105mm macro 1:2.5
This is an excellent copy of this highly sought after lens. It was a very hard decision to sell this but I want a versatile lens with AF and am getting the Tamron 90mm in it’s place. This lens shows very little wear on the body, and the glass and coating are perfect. It has dental setting stickers on the macro scale, which I haven’t seen before. It does not include the original caps (the way I got it) but a Tiffen UV protector filter is.
Asking USD$440 SOLD




6. Sigma zoom 100-300mm 1:4.5-6.7 DL
I bought this lens new in 2000 and it has been well cared for. Little wear on the body and the glass and coating are un-marred. I have the original caps, hood and manual. I have been very happy with the performance of this auto focus lens, but have moved to primes for telephoto.
Asking USD$80




7. Vivitar 28mm 1:2 Auto Wide-angle (by Kiron)
One of the fastest 28mm you’ll find. Great performance at all apertures and a fun lens to use. I had to modify the flange at the base to fit on my DSLR. I did this by removing it from the lens to ensure no damage and filing it down. It looks good and now fits fine. Very little wear on the body with glass and coating in perfect condition. This is an M style lens and I’ve had no trouble with metering on my k200d. Includes a Kenko Skylight 1A filter.
Asking USD$100 SOLD




8. Super-Takumar 85mm 1:1.9
I love the images this lens produces and it is great for portraits. However I have young kids and find it too slow to get consistent results when they’re playing. There is a some wear on the body from use but it shows no signs of damage or abuse. Glass is perfect and the focus ring is amazingly smooth. I’m including a Hoya UV-GUARD filter. You know you want it!
Asking USD$240 SOLD

9. Takumar-F zoom 70-210mm 1:4-5.6
Same as the Pentax-F. This lens shows light wear on the body. The glass and coating are scratch free, however one of the internal elements near the front shows some separation/bubbling near the outer edge. During my use of this lens I have not found it to affect IQ at all. The lens is missing it’s front cap but comes with it’s original case and a Hoya Skylight 1B filter.
Asking USD$50




10. Tokina RMCDoubler for P/K
This high quality 2x multiplier is in mint condition. Body and glass are flawless. Includes all original caps and original lined leather bag.
Asking USD$30




11. Pentax-DA SMC 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6 ALII
The kit lens from my k200d. Now that I have the 16-45 there is no reason to keep this. Only a few months old, in like new condition with box, hood, paperwork etc. Includes Hoya skylight 1B filter. I lost the original lens cap, which is why it has an aftermarket cap with keeper.
Asking USD$80 SOLD

Please don't do this to me. I really don't want to have to buy it. I already have the K01 variant and it's been producing some nice shots. This K04 I am sure is also fine.

How many 28mm can one person have?

I'll take the Vivitar 28mm, if you can ship is USPS Priority mail on or before tuesday (I'm leaving town and can't be sure it'll get to me if it gets shipped after that).

Drop me an email, rickcorley at gmail dot com, to arrange shipping etc.

I'll be paying with paypal.
