[SOLD] Lester A Dine 105mm macro lens

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Lester A Dine 105mm macro lens

Asking Price
US$350. Including Shipping in the ConUS

Item Description
Like another seller of this lens recently said, it should need no introduction. There are a number of posts on this forum and elsewhere describing it's qualities and lineage. Suffice to say it's a great lens, a classic and I guess a collector's item, if you're into that.
I'm not a collector or a macro shooter, so I've decided to pass this lens along to a better home.
I posted pics of the lens in this thread:
https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-slr-lens-discussion/53643-lester-d...-question.html

I can post pics taken with the lens if requested, but my pitiful jpegs don't do it justice.



thanks for looking

Hi, no there are no known issues with this lens. If I had the original box it would qualify as mint. The only blemish I see is the edges of the dental guide sticker show some minor wear. Otherwise it's flawless.
The only issue I have with it is that it's big and heavy, but that's true of all the 100mm macro lenses to some degree.
If you follow the link in the first post there are some close ups of the lens.

thanks for looking
