[SOLD] 24mm f2.8 lens, Vivitar PKA 2x Macro Extension tubes

I'm at work and will post pics tonight of the gear. Prices in USD.

Selling these items as I have overlaps in my bag. Nothing wrong with any of them and I'll guarantee that for a 7 day inspection with full money back if not satisfied.

Promaster 24mm f2.8 PK-M mount that is a nice little lens. I'm positive that this is Tokina built. It's identical to their lens of the same era. Has a "Macro function" going to 1:4 which is handy. Lens is in excellent shape and frankly hasn't seen a ton of use. Nice and sharp. Easy to focus and images are bright in the VF.

SOLD


Vivitar PK-A 2x macro convertor with the electrical contacts. Again a nice unit that really shines as a macro extension set. So-so as a 2x unit. There are better.
SOLD shipped to USA /Canada $90 to Europe, $100 everywhere else.

With the K20d and the 24mm attached.
Attachment 39401
Attachment 39402

Vivitar PK-M macro Extension Tubes 12, 20 and 36mm K mount tubes. They have a case as well to protect them. In excellent condition. Since I have a bellows and 2 macro lenses. These and the unit above just get no use. Would work well with the 24mm above as well.

SOLD


Prices in USD Send me a PM if interested and I will combine shipping if you want 2 or more. If I can cut some off the shipped cost, I'll pass that on to you.

Just home for lunch and took this shot with the 24mm and the Vivitar 2x macro at full extension. So completely manual exposure.

Same shot with 2 crops. No adjustments

Photos added here: Picasa Web Albums - Peter - Vivitar 2x

I took a couple of quick macros using the FA50mm f1.4 for a true 1:1 macro. One is a common table fork and the other a quarter and penny together. This will give you a sense of scale. The barrel of this tube extends to aid in composition, magnification and focusing. With a good sharp lens, You can take fully automated shots. In this I used a flash wired to the camera. The flash can operate in P-TTL since the macro tube is seen as an A series lens by the body.
