[SOLD] Sears (Ricoh?) 70-210mm f4 Macro Auto Exp. Lens Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sears 70-210mm f4 Macro Auto Exp. Lens

Asking Price
listed on eBay price reduced

Item Description
From the included owners manual:

"Automatic Interchanable Lens 70-210mm f4.0 Macro Zoom"

KR mount for cameras using PK, KA (Pentax) and RK (Ricoh) program systems

Multi-Coating -minimizes light flares and reflections

Automatic Aperture Control

I purchased this lens with several other Pentax items. I already have a lens to cover this range, so I am selling this one. I'm no lens expert, but I didn't see any problems with it at all. The front and rear lens caps, original styrofoam, original box and instruction manual are included. The "Ricoh pin" has been removed from this camera, eliminating the risk that it could get stuck on your DSLR. The pin is included with the lens just in case you would want to put it back for some reason.

What a FUN, CHEAP way to get started with a macro lens!

You will find a few TEST SHOTS that I did with my Pentax K2000 DSLR at the bottom of this listing. I am just a beginner photo hack, so please don't take my shot as a measure of the abilites of this lens. In the right hands, I'm sure it can do more. The constant f4 makes is rather fast for a zoom of this range.

NEW Test shots with this lens:

( f 9.0, 135mm, iso 400, shutter speed 1/30s, K2000 set to AV mode, macro mode on lens, manual focus- traight from camera JPG- no pp apart from crop and resize)

Bump for Test photos added. For those on a limited budget with just the kit lense, this would be a great way to extend your range at a BUDGET price.

The manual focus is VERY EASY to do with this lens.
