[SOLD] Pentax DA 18-55, A 50mm f1.7, Phoenix 100mm Macro (1:2 and 1:1), Vivitar Telec

Hello,
I'm getting rid of all of my manual focusing lenses (with a K100D MF is not my cup of tea) + the kit lens in order to finance a purchase of a DA 40mm. All the listed items are in excellent condition as you can see from the pictures and very well taken care of. The prices are in US$ and shipping is not included (pm me for shipping rates - shipping worldwide from Montreal or local pick-up). I accept payments via paypal but I'm open to other solutions. Only serious buyers please!

(SOLD) - Pentax DA 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 version I. Used once and then replaced with a 18-250mm. It still has 10 months Canadian warranty. It comes with box, front and rear caps and hood --> 50$ (SOLD)

(SOLD) - Pentax A 50mm f1.7. Wonderful lens in perfect condition. This lens is considered by many sharper than the version with f1.4. I have used it a couple of times and then I switched to the AF version that is optically identical and I would never get rid of it! It comes with not original front and rear caps --> 85$ (SOLD)

- Phoenix MF 100mm f3.5 Macro 1:2 + adapter for macro 1:1. Despite the low price, it's considered a good and sharp macro lens. It is made in Japan, it is a rebranded Vivitar and it is very difficult to find for the K mount. It has the aperture pin for camera controlled aperture and automatic exposure. I used it just a couple of times. It comes with original box, front and rear caps and an adapter to achieve 1:1 macro --> 130$

(SOLD) - Vivitar teleconverter 2x. This has been a wrong purchase because I thought it has the aperture pin, but actually it does not. It comes with front and rear caps and a rigid pouch. --> 30$ (SOLD)

Hello,

Maybe a few sample pics taken with a Phoenix 100/3.5 Macro could help:





Both are unprocessed jpegs straight from the raw files. You can check the full res pictures (10MP) clicking on them and then selecting the full res pic ...

I have honestly tried this lens just a couple of times... but my skills in MF and macro photography are way worse than yours
Thank you for the pictures.

As far as I know the Phoenix MF 100mm f3.5 Macro 1:2 + adapter for macro 1:1 is a close copy of Cosina 100/3,5 known as a very sharp makro lens.

It's not a close copy, it's the exact same thing. Cosina/Vivitar/Phoenix/etc were just generic name-brands during this time period who re-branded items from OEMs to give them more market appeal.
