[SOLD] Vivitar 28mm f2.8 Prime PKA Lens, Also lots of Filters, B+W, Genuine Pentax, e

For Sale is one Vivitar 28mm f2.8 Prime Lens in PKA mount.

A very good indoor lens. 28mm is a great focal length for indoor use. F2.8 is good enough for most indoor situations and the "A" setting allows for easy use with a PTTL or low priced Auto Flash.

This lens is in near mint condition. Focus is very smooth and well damped. Glass is perfect. Multicoating has no defect. No visible dust. No scratches on body. Blades are snappy. Super light weight and very compact.

It's not a Series I or anything, but it does take nice pleasing photos. Has good edge to edge sharpness. Is completely usable at f2.8 although of course it improves at f5.6 like any other lens. It close focuses to about 0.6ft.

It is a manual focus lens, but has the "A" setting allowing you to set aperature in camera and allowing for easy use of a flash. Since it is a wide angle lens, focusing is very easy as the depth of field will cover anything around 7ft and beyond when set at infinity.

This lens does have a tiny pin for the Ricoh P, but I it was designed with the Pentax AF hole in mind. It is a tiny triangular pin which does not catch in the AF hole. I have used this lens with my K100D and my K20D never had even a hint of it snagging. I've actually sold a couple of these lenses before and the other buyers didn't experience any problems either so you can set your mind at ease.

This lens was listed previously, but the sale fell through, so I'm relisting it.

Included are original front cap and generic rear cap.

Sold Asking $40 + shipping

International buyers are welcome, I ship internationally all the time.

Shipping is:

$6 US
$10 Canada or Australia
Please inquire for other international locations.


On a separate note, I also have a few filters available for sale. All, but one of them are scratch free. Some of them are brand new and unused. If the filters come with a case, it is noted as such. Shipping is a flat $4 in the US, $6 to Canada or Australia no matter how many items you buy, so the more you buy, the more you save. They are listed in order of size. If you buy the lens listed above, shipping is free on the filters.

$2 - Telesor 48mm Coated UV filter - Excellent Condition. With original box.

Sold $15 - Genuine Pentax 49mm Close-Up Lens #1 - Mint Condition with original case. (Perfect for converting a 50mm to macro use.)

$6 - NEW B+W 55mm neutral density filter x2. Comes in a square padded case. Brand New. Very useful for bokeh shots in bright light when you shutter speed just can't compensate. These are usually very expensive, so best to just get one of these and some step-up rings. Great Deal! You can't find these cheaper. (see picture)

$15 - B+W 62mm coated UV filter. Very Good condition, comes with Tiffen Case. Made in Germany of schott glass, the finest available. With hard coating and is super easy to clean. Has super slight dent, but does not affect filter mounting in any way (front or back). Also has tiny scratch almost impossible to see near the edge.

$30 - B+W 62mm Circular Polarizer. In mint condition with original square padded case. Made in Germany of schott glass, the finest available. Normally goes for double this price.

Sold $16 - Hama 77mm Linear Polarizer - Excellent Condition with case. (I removed the little handle to accomadate the hood and don't have it anymore, but it turns very easily and smoothly) (Hama is a German photography company which makes very nice equipment at reasonable prices. (Linear Polarizers work perfectly fine with Pentax Autofocus cameras. I have sold many of them and haven't had any complaints. Plus I have tested them with my own K100d, K10d and K20d never had any problems.) Usually difficult to find at a good price for such large sized polarizers.

$4 - 72-77mm metal step up ring. New condition.

$4 - 72-67mm metal step up ring. New condition.

Sold $4 - 67-62mm metal step up ring. New condition.

$4 - 62-58mm metal step up ring. New condition.

$4 - 58-55mm metal step up ring. New condition.

$4 - 55-52mm metal step up ring. New condition.

$2 - 55-52mm metal step up ring. Used, a little rough, but usable.
