[SOLD] Sears 135mm f:2.8 Macro Telephoto Lens Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sears 135mm f:2.8 Macro Telephoto Lens

Asking Price
$60 or reasonable offer

Item Description
This is my first marketplace listing, but I am mycarsoots on ebay so you can check my 100% feedback rating.

I purchased this lens a while back, and it appears to have never been used. It is completely free of marks, scratches, or paint wear. The glass is pristine, and I only see a few very small specks of dust inside the lens. The aperture blades are dry and snappy, and the focus ring is smooth. No issues at all!

It has the Ricoh KR/Pentax KA mount, and I have removed the dreaded "Ricoh pin". I will include the pin so you can reinstall it if you actually use a KR mount camera. With the pin removed, it will safely mount on your Pentax DSLR with all exposure functions available. Manual focus only, or course!

The "macro" function on this lens is unique. The front lens element group can be moved from the normal position to 1:7, 1:6, or 1:5. The closest focus is about 3 feet. The results when using the macro function are decent but a little strange (see attached photo for weird bokeh).

Thanks for looking, and send a PM if interested.

I have the same lens, I like it very much!
I think this is one of those "sleeper" lenses that you don't hear much about but, they are really quite a nice lens.

I have this lens too and should bleedin' well put it on the camera occasionally. The bokeh can definitely be "odd", in a way that I know appeals to many people. It's kind of like having a dial labeled "vaseline". I think this is a unique lens that might take shots no other lens can take.

These were taken with this lens on 200 Kodak Gold and scanned from the negatives on an Epson V500.
