[SOLD] 16-45/4, Spotmatic+Film Bodies, custom 50/1.2 M42, Sigma 35-80 A; Worldwide Sh

Hello everyone, time to get rid of some more equipment. I have some camera bodies and a couple lenses, and then one really special lens that I guarantee no one else has! Please excuse the crummy flash as I don't have a better one at the moment:


Bushnell 28mm f/2.8 compact wide-angle M42-mount lens:
Never really used, but I tested it and it takes nice, sharp pictures for a lens brand I'm not familiar with. The lens is in near-mint condition as you can see, with only a little bit of dust.







Price: $30 shipped USA



SOLD Pentax DA 16-45mm f/4.0 lens:
Basically mint condition with no noticeable scratches anywhere. Comes with front and rear caps and the original hood, as well as a Kenko 67mm Circular Polarizer filter. (Hood and filter not pictured).
Price: $215 shipped SOLD



SOLD Pentax Spotmatic m42 film camera:
I can't test if the lightmeter is functioning because I don't have the proper battery to test it. Everything else is in excellent condition with just minor age-related wear.
Price: $25 shipped SOLD



Pentax P30T aperture-priority MF film camera:
Light meter works perfectly, comes with a fresh set of batteries.





Price: $25 shipped




Zenit-B Russian m42 film body:
Haven't tested it with film, seems completely manual, but it's in good condition overall.





Price: $20 shipped





Hand-converted Minolta Rokkor 50mm f/1.2 m42 lens
This is an extremely special one-of-a-kind lens, it was hand-converted by Pete Ganzel, a member of another camera forum online. He does very professional conversions of many lenses, and is one of the greatest go-to guys for any technical information about any aspect of photography. Because of the craftsmanship and time that went into making this lens, I really wish I could have kept it. However, it's just not economically viable right now to hold on to it. It has been converted from the original Minolta MD mount to M42, and the aperture works perfectly (something very hard to get right by yourself). It focuses perfectly to infinity and focuses up to just 0.35 meters away. The focus ring is very smooth and has no problems, and the aperture blades have no oil on them. The aperture clicks well at all stops. The glass is in near-mint condition with no visible problems at all. Comes with front and rear caps, a 55mm filter, and a Minolta leather/velvet case that fits the lens perfectly. This lens worked great on my Pentax K200D and will work great with ANY digital camera, not just Pentax ones, due to the wide availability of M42 adapters for all different systems.













Price: $600 shipped




SOLD Sigma 35-80mm A lens:
A small, simple lens with very good image quality, works great in A mode for perfect flash exposures. In near-mint condition with the front cap only. One or two tiny dust particles on the rear element.
Price: $30 shipped SOLD

To ship the spotmatic, or any camera, to Australia would be $14 USD. This would include insurance, and take about 5-10 days to arrive.

Here are some pictures all with the K200D that I shot:


f/4 or f/5.6, slight PP sharpening:




f/1.2 NO sharpening:




f/1.2 slight PP sharpening:





It really is an amazing lens. I did comparisons of all popular low-light lenses from all companies in the history of photography, Canon Nikon Minolta Pentax etc., and I found the Minolta Rokkor 50/1.2 to be the second best (sub-$5,000) f/1.2 lens wide-open ever made, when sharpness and color are concerned, only bested by the Pentax-A 50mm f/1.2 which was out of my budget at the time. It's really a perfect lens and the only reason I can sell it at all is because I'm in the Pentax camp now and have access to their 50/1.2 -- but it is the same price as this lens, and can only be used on one system. My Rokkor lens can be used on any system, including Canon EOS and Nikon. And again, it was hand converted and collimated, so it works perfectly focusing to infinity on any mount.

Bumping with some better images of the Rokkor 50/1.2 M42 lens:













Glass is 95%+ mint, and the only noticeable wear on the body is the front bezel where the name is, as well as the rear machined mount.

I'll be putting the 50/1.2 on eBay soon if there's no more interest here. All reasonable offers considered!
