Recent pictures from Spiratone 20mm f/2.8

Some recent pictures of Venetian Hotel in Macau. The fast prime in Spiratone 20mm f/2.8 served me really well for indoor. All are hand-held shots taken in Av mode in ISO 400 wide open at f/2.8 with K10D

Test pictures with Prakticar 28-70 f/3.5-4.8 (m42)

This is a cute M42 lens smaller than the kit's lens but yet provide a useful focal range. I have not tried it on macro, so I can't be sure on macro. But on normal zoom, this zoom rocks. You can search in the internet for hours and I don't think anyone has Hin's first zoom lens on a SLR. Yes, it is my very first SLR lens when I purchased a film camera with Praktica MTL5. The lens is likely from East Germany or Japan.

Pentax DA 50-200 is Available

Pentax DA 50-200 has been changed from [Reserved] to [Available] as my friend has not shown interest in my zoom. Slight adjustment for $5 reduction to cost on DA zoom and close up filters.

Price Reduced

Guys, please consider my lens. I buy way too many, ooops, I am expecting 6 boxes with 7 lens coming. I can't wait to see my DA 21mm limited, my first limited.

At this rate of selling, I am sinking into the black hole of LBA, totally un-manageable, like the financial market. I am requesting a bail out plan from you to consider 7 lens I have on the table in Marketplace. Please pass the 7 lens bail out plan before I go into LBA recession.

Price Reduced:
  • Pentax DA 50-200 f/4.0-5.6: $125 -> $110
  • Prakticar 28-70 f/3.5-4.8: $55 -> $45
  • Tiffen 49mm Closeup +1, +2, +3: $20-> $10

No one interested. I think I have a good price for all available items, please consider these lens as they are all in good condition. The M42 Prakticar looks brand new. And the DA 50-200 surely rocks as my lightest traveling zoom lens.

Spiratone 20mm f/2.8 is sold already. Youngster has another exact lens for $80 and you should look up his sale thread.

For the 49mm +1,+2,+4 close up filter set, I will give it out for free for anyone buying my cutest M42 zoom lens with Prakticar 28-70 f/3.5.-4.8 (M42). This zoom can't be found easily in ebay and internet.

I am surprised that no one is interested in my Pentax DA 50-200 f/4.0-5.6 for $110.

Thanks,
Hin

With no interest shown on my DA 50-200, I am withdrawing from sale for a later time. If you are still interested, please PM me as I will keep that price unchanged.

Thanks,
Hin
