[SOLD] 50mm Lens and Macro Focusing Teleconverter

For Sale:

Vivitar Macro Focusing Teleconverter - This well regarded teleconverter not only works as a standard 2X teleconverter, it also turns any standard 50mm into a 1:1 macro lens. For many people, this is by far the cheapest way to do nice macro photos without a large investment. You simply turn the ring and the converter extends allowing you whichever magnification you choose. This particular unit is in very good condition. Glass is perfect. Multicoating is perfect. The ring turns smoothly and is well damped. It has a bit of brassing (paint wear), but other than, it is perfect. Works best with Pentax 50mm f1.7 or f2 lenses because those have a flatter field of view than the f1.4 or f1.2 lenses. Of course other brand K mount lenses will work too. This model does not have an "A" setting, so you will have to adjust the aperture using the aperature ring and green button. Price Lowered Asking $50+shipping

SMC Pentax M 50mm f2 - Standard 50mm lens. Sharper than the kit lens, this lens is the standard lens provided by Pentax for many model cameras over the years. It features all metal construction. SMC coating and is light weight and compact. This particular sample is in very good condition. Focus is smooth. Glass and multicoating are perfect. Blades are oil free and aperture clicks solidly. Has a bit of brassing. This is a manual focus lens and works perfectly with the teleconverter above. Works on all Pentax DSLR in manual focus mode. Asking $20+shipping.

These two items are perfectly matched for each other. You end up with a very nice 100mm macro kit for a fraction of the price of a normal macro lens. Buy both together for the Reduced Price of $60+shipping.

Shipping for each item:

$6 in the US. (Priority Mail)
$12 to Canada (First Class Mail)
Please inquire for other locations.

International buyers are most welcome, I ship internationally all the time.

So, with a 50mm f/2 it would be a 150 FOV f/4 with a 1:1 Mag ratio?
I had one before...I would like it. But it would take few weeks to "Hide Away" the $$ needed... Good luck
