[SOLD] Pentax MF Lenses + 70mm f/2.4

I am selling the following lenses:

1) Pentax 70mm f/2.4. I got this lens few weeks ago from another forum member. This lens is cosmetically in mint condition. The glass is crystal clear and images produced by this baby are gorgeous. However, there is a focusing issue with the lens. Two weeks ago I dropped the lens from a coffee table. The lens did not sustain any physical damage, but for some reason the focusing ring got stiff, so my K20D is having tough time to drive the focusing mechanism. You can focus manually without trouble. The focusing ring is on harder side, but not too hard to prevent you to focus manually. I am asking $230, which will include USPS Priority Mail shipping (within the US) and PayPal fee. The lens comes with both genuine Pentax lens caps. Of course, the screw-on lens hood is also included. Toward infinity the focusing ring is smooth and camera will auto-focus well. As you get toward a closer distance, camera auto-focusing mechanism does not have enough power to drive the focusing ring.

2) Tamron 90mm f/2.5 Adaptal 2 Macro Lens. This lens comes with the adapter for Pentax K mount. I used the lens on K20D. Glass elements are free of any scratches, fungus, or haze. There are just few usual dust particles, but they do not affect images. Mechanically, the lens performs great. Focusing ring is smooth, aperture blades are oil-free and snappy. Image quality is great. Body of the lens is still in good condition showing just normal wear. There are two small dents around the front outside ring, but they don't affect any functionality. I am asking $140, which will cover USPS Priority Mail shipping and PayPal fee.

3) Pentax Super-Takumar 100mm f/4 Macro. This lens is M42 mount, but comes with genuine Pentax K-mount adapter, so you can use the lens on newer Pentax cameras. I will leave you the spring on the adapter, but you should remove it. Otherwise, every time you remove the lens from your camera, the adapter will remain on the camera mount, so you have to remove it afterwards. The lens condition is as Tamron 90mm lens (that this lens does not have any dents). I am asking $140, which will cover USPS Priority Mail shipping and PayPal fee.

4) Pentax SMC-M 28mm f/2.8. This lens is in a very good condition. Glass is crystal clear. There are few usual dust particles, but they do not affect images at all. Mechanically everything works great. The external body would be mint if not for a little bit of brassing on aperture ring. I do not have the rear cap for this lens. I am asking $50, which will cover shipping and PayPal fee.

5) Pentax SMC-M 55mm f/2 in a very similar condition as 28mm lens (no rear cap). I am asking $40, which will cover shipping and PayPal fee.

If you are interested in any of the lenses, drop me a message and I will email you some images. If you buy Tamron or Pentax 100mm, I will give you for free K1000 camera and sears 135mm f/2.8 lens. Since the camera battery is dead, I don't know if the camera works anymore. It hasn't been used for years. Sears lens looks fine, but I haven't tried it. Except 70mm lens, I got the rest of equipment on a garage sale. I am keeping some equipment and selling the rest.
