[SOLD] Pentax M42 Bellows 135mm and 35mm lens with focus rail

Pentax M42 Bellows 135mm and 35mm lens with focus rail

Item Description
I have 2 bellows sets and really don't need both. Check this week's
front to rear focus rail which makes fine focus much easier if you use a tripod. Also included is a 135mm Accura Supertel f2.8-f22 and a Focal 35mm f2.8
Both these lenses are T mount and a T mount to 42mm adapter is included.


The 135mm is only good for this setup. The front 2 elements have a little delaminating going on. It looks like there are air bubbles between the glass in about 10 small spots. For close macros, that doesn't matter but for anything else the lens is useless. Consider it free with the set. Second the focus ring is jammed. Again for this, it doesn't matter but no good for anything else. Consider this lens a freebie.

The Focal 35mm f2.8-16 works fine. Again there is a but. With a 35mm on a 130mm set of bellows, you are getting ultra closeup macro shots.
At full extension, it's almost impossible to use unless you are setup on a tripod or support. Dialed back, you can get some decent images that are quite close up. 35mm lens x 130mm bellows is around 4 x life sized.

$60.00 Paypal and Shipping incl OBO

You get:
> M42 T mount
> F/R focus rail
> 130mm Bellows in near mint shape that also includes the original box.
> 35mm f2.8 Focal T Mount lens
> 135mm f2.8 AS T Mount lens

All you need to make this attach to the camera is one of those $8 M42
to k mount T mount style adapters. They are thick like a T mount and give you enough space to clear the Flash housing on any K Series body.
. If you have any questions, I'll be happy to help out.

Here's a shot of one of those tiny buttercups that are about the size of a pencil eraser. The focus point was on the thin green leaves that appear to support the petals. I just liked the backlight on that section.



Also the thing that really helps use this setup is the focus rail. With this part (detachable) you mount the rail on a tripod or support and place it close to the subject. The rail has dials to shift the entire bellows with camera attached front to rear to get exact focus on the subject. There are locking dials to hold the focus point for shooting.
