Item Description
Time to sell off more stuff of mine. I'll be as short and sweet as possible, since there are lots of items in this thread!



First up is a Pentax SMC-A 35-105mm f/3.5 constant-aperture zoom lens. I had wanted one of these and looked around and finally nabbed one, but unfortunately, the zoom ring is a bit stiff. That's the only problem with this lens. It still turns, and I'm sure it would be an easy fix by someone who can get inside there, but I just don't have the knowledge to do that. As such, I'm selling it at a loss. The focusing ring is smooth, the glass is beautiful with just a little external edge dust, the body has just a few small marks, and all in all it's great. You just have to put extra effort into zooming. These have been steadily going for around $175 on evilBay, presumably without the problem of a stiff zoom ring. But I think a $60 deduction covers that!

It comes just the lens by itself, well-wrapped. Here are some pictures.





PRICE IS $115





Next is a Tokina 28-70mm f/2.8-4.3 auto-aperture zoom lens. I recently sold a copy of this lens; this is another copy I fell into and is in just as good of condition, and works perfectly. I can't see anything wrong with the glass, the aperture works great, and the zoom and focus rings are both silky smooth like on any good copy of this lens. Beautiful mult-coating, extremely sharp even in the very close-focusing macro mode, and excellent colors. On par with ANY Pentax SMC-A lens.

It comes with front and rear Tokina-brand caps. Here are pictures:





PRICE IS $85





Next is a true classic, the Tamron 500mm Adapt-all macro Mirror lens. You can search the web and this forum hearing praises of this lens. Extremely high-quality with great colors and saturation, and impeccable sharpness on-par with refractive lenses of this length. It is in very, very good condition with a great looking body, caps, a hood, and the original hard leather case, as well as an 82mm UV filter (cost about $20).

The only fault is that there are some small coating marks on the front of the lens. They are NOT fungus, spores, mold, or anything like that. They're simply little spots where an abrasive cleaner was improperly used that removed a bit of the multi-coating (it wasn't me, I swear!). And believe me, they have NO affect on image quality or flare resistance at all.

I've only got two pictures of it right now, I'll be shooting more later. Here those are:




PRICE IS $220





Here's a HOYA 67mm UV filter. This is an older, vintage filter, probably from the 70s. As such, it is not subject to the poorer manufacturing standards of modern filter with plastic frames and lenses. It is completely metal and glass, with the optic very well-seated in the frame, and the overall feel is extremely dense and of high-quality. I promise this isn't like normal filters you'll tend toss around, it's more in line with those made by B+W.



PRICE IS $10

Hold that 28-70 for me and I'll be your best friend for life! I'll marry you if you hold the 35-105 for a week too.

Here's another picture of what the Tammy 500mm mirror comes with, along with the lens itself and the adaptall-PK adapter:



The case is a little beat up on the outside, but great looking on the inside, and holds the lens well during transport. All included at no extra charge, as the lens by itself regularly goes for almost $250 on evilBay.

Gotta get this stuff sold! Don't make me think about selling it on eBay :P

I'll also knock off some of the asking price if you purchase multiple things.

Will someone please pry this 35-105 lens from my warm, living hands!? The Tokina too while you're at it! If you buy both, I'll make it $165, INCLUDING shipping charges, for members in the USA! And $185 for anyone else in the world.
