[SOLD] Voïgtlander Macro APO-Lanthar 125mm f/2.5 SL (K Mount)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Voigtlander Macro APO-Lanthar 125mm f/2.5 SL (K Mount)

Asking Price
1000$US (negotiable) -> lowered from 1400$

Item Description
purchase date 10/18/07
from cameraquest.com

I tried to sell it here on August 28th and was bombarded with PMs for offers. I decided to go the eBAY route, but 1 day later a very serious PF forum member says he's willing to pay extra if I hold it.

I did, for 4 weeks, and never heard back.

I tried to convince myself not to sell it, even if I made less than 30 exposures with it. However, macro is definitely not for me.

I had noticed there was some friction when focusing for the last quarter turn. Since my 1 year warranty with CQ was going to expire I sent it in to make sure everything was OK since I knew I'd sell it.

CQ found there was indeed an abnormal friction when compared to another 125mm. It was sent to the factory
(Germany?) and came back 12 weeks later almost (that would be last week).

It is now officially in MINT condition. Esthetically perfect, no scratch or signs of use.

Comes with original box, lens metallic cap, hood and manual.

Here are the pictures. If you want more or of different angles, let me know, I will provide any details you want!

Very tempting offer, but I am well covered for this range with the 77mm Limited f/1.8 for the moment (I won't even pretend it's in the same league) but does what I need for now.

Thank you for the offer though!

What's that in American money? (I assume your price is Canadian dollars).

Actually US dollars since I use a merchant account and right now the exchange rate is in my favor.

Shall I edit?
