[SOLD] K mount and M42 Lenses

For sale, lenses in K and M42 mount! A lot of nice stuff that I have in my shelves but rarely use...
If you see a leather case in picture - that means it's included.
Forgot: I'm also open for trades, looking for: O-ME53 Eyecup, Split-screen prism with correct thickness for K10D (i.e. the ones that don't require shims), and decent or above decent (SP) Tamron Adaptall-2 Lenses - cosmetics don't matter, I need them to work well optically and mechanically.


1) Pentax-M 50/1.4 - $90 - SOLD
Fast and extremely sharp from f/2! Everything works well, and looks well - only a bit of dust inside, and a bit of brassing on the rear of aperture dial.

Pic 3 - aperture rear


2) Access P 28-70/2.8~4.2 P-MC (K-mount) - $25
Relatively fast, and very well built lens - K-mount, has Ricoh pin - but I never bothered, since I could never manage it to get stuck on my K10D...
The barrel looks perfect to me, the glass also looks good EXCEPT there are infamous "bubbles" on the rear element.
On the first picture, aperture looks kinda funny - it's just the rear part of the lens is showing, not screwed up aperture blades or anything.

3) Osawa 28/2.8 (K-mount) - $20
Same lens as Toyo/Tou-Five Star 28/2.8 and others - so a very decent performer if stopped down past f/4; lens is very compact as well. I don't have a front cap, so I keep a cheap filter in front for protection when not in use.
Glass is perfect, barrel almost perfect - gotta specifically look for one tiny nick before you see it.

4) Promaster 70-210/4.5-5.6 - $30
Super-compact and light zoom for its length!! As with previous one, gotta really look for that one tiny nick before you find it. Glass is perfect.

That's it for K-mounts. Now M42:

5) Tamron Adapt-a-Matic 300/5.6 - $45 - SOLD
A great M42 tele! The IQ is amazing, and bokeh too due to its 9 aperture blades. Barrel is very clean, and glass too - I see only some dust on the front element. The lens comes with built-in hood and tripod mount.

6) Soligor 28/2.8 - $20 - Pending
An M42 wide angle by Soligor. IQ, as is the case with Osawa lens above, is greatly improved when stopped down to f/5.6. Glass and barrel look almost perfect.

7) Fujinon 55/1.8 (M42) - $25
Said to be a very sharp lens; unfortunately, never had a chance to try out myself - it needs a bit of trimming to use on a DSLR (aperture ring is pushed right against the body when mounted - so it won't nudge; on film bodies or with some trimming, it should work okay - here's a thread about it)
Aside from that, lens itself is in very good condition - glass is scratchless, barrel shows minimal wear. The stuff you can see in pic 3 is glue that holds down the little pin so that aperture stays on what you set it - and not wide open - this lens doesn't have an A/M switch.

8) Auto Rikenon 55/1.4 (M42) - $50
Probably a poor man's DA*55?
Glass is scratchless, there seem to be some dots on inner glass elements - pretty minor, shouldn't affect IQ. Barrel has some paint loss.

That's it! The shipping in CONUS ranges from $5 to $10 depending on where you are and how heavy a lens is.
