[SOLD] Spotmatic, M42 and K mount lenses - 55mm, 135mm, 28-105mm

Well, my wife has accused me of being as much into camera collecting as I am into photography. As always, she's right. So in the interests of marital harmony I am trying to keep it to a "working" collection, and pass on the items I just haven't used much recently. She's advocating a "one comes in, one goes out" rule that I haven't QUITE managed to live by... but we all have our little faults, right? But here are a few items that perhaps you can put to better use than I am now:

1. Honeywell Pentax Spotmatic 1000 with SMC Takumar 55mm F/2 - $25 - SOLD
2. Asahi Takumar Bayonet 135mm F/2.5 Lens - $40 SOLD on eBay
3. Kiron 28-105mm F/3.2-4.5 Macro zoom lens - $35 - SOLD
Shipping $8 one item, $10 for 2 or 3 (In US. International interest welcome, but shipping will be more)



2. Asahi Takumar Bayonet 135mm F/2.5 Lens (K mount, MF) - $40
This is a nice fast telephoto lens in great condition, no defects that I can see except perhaps a few specks of internal dust (<5, no effect on picture). Focuses smoothly, aperture is crisp and turns easily. Comes with original front and rear caps, in great condition, has a built in hood, and even the original faux leather lens pouch. The pouch has seen better days, but the lens is very clean.









Sample Shot:



Thanks for looking, PM me with interest or any questions. I guarantee what I've said above to the best of my abilities, so if you ever find anything other than as described I am happy to refund your money.

Nuts! Wish I'd seen that Kiron for sale sooner. I had the same Kiron in Nikon mount back in the 80's and it was a great lens. Congratulations, Buyer! You will be pleased.

Indeed, Spotmatic sold. Takumar Bayonet still available, although interest is building! So to speak. :-)

I know, you've read the reviews on the Takumar Bayonet 135mm and you aren't impressed. I've had pretty good luck with mine. I think the advice about always shooting using the lens hood and keeping the light source behind you are quite good. This lens can make some great pictures.

Here's a sample shot, and a crop that shows the lattice in the window behind me. That's pretty sharp, I think!





And if you're not convinced yet, price reduced to $35. :-)

Shameless bump - under 24 hours left, and still pretty cheap. Check it out!
