[SOLD] Pentax A50 f/1.7 + Vivitar 2x Macro Teleconverter

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax A50 f/1.7 + Vivitar 2x Macro Teleconverter

Asking Price
$50 for A50. $65 for the TC. $100 for both

Item Description
Both are in excellent condition, optically and cosmetically.

The A50 1.7 is probably one of THE sharpest fast 50s for any brand even wide open. Manual focus is a joy due to the long smooth focus throw. Works great on a dSLR because it has the A setting. The only reason I'm letting it go is because it seems redundant with my F50 1.7

Vivitar 2x macro teleconverter. Great accessory that allows any of your k-mount 50s go down to 1:1 macro. Surprisingly sharp, I just don't use it as much as I though I would. and it pairs up great with the A50. It has contacts to allow for auto aperture. Comes with a case

Thanks for looking

Free bump

Free bump for this excellent Macro combo.

I got exactly the same setup and I think I won't need another macro lens for a while. For 100 USD, you get outstanding A50/1.7 for lowlight (hell of a sharp lens from F/2) together with nice 1:1 macro!
