[SOLD] M42 Lenses - cheap!

One reason we love Pentax - cheap old lenses. All can be used on a digital SLR with an adapter.

Super-Takumar 28mm f/3.5 - good condition, some external signs of use and age, nice image quality, clear glass without yellowing. $38.

Vivitar 50mm f/1.8 Cosina made, solid all-metal build, smooth focus, nice picture quality, has a scratch on posterior lens element that does not affect picture quality. Otherwise glass is clear. $12

Lenmar 135mm f/2.8 - Automatic only, although supposedly it is easy to convert to manual, I never got around to it. Takes decent pictures on a Spotmatic. Has a built in lens hood and is multi-coated. Has a dent on the back, doesn't affect use in any way. $8

Shipping in U.S. $8 first item, $5 each additional. Pictures available upon request. If you find items not as described I am happy to refund your money.
