[SOLD] Vivitar/Panagor Tele-Macronet 3X goes from 1.5:1 1:5 Macro

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Vivitar/Panagor Tele-Macronet 3X goes from 1.5:1 1:5 Macro

Asking Price
USD 48

Item Description
The Panagor Tele-Macronet 3x goes from an amazing 1.5:1 to 1:5 macro with the use of a zoom ring on the barrel of the converter.

In other words, it can work as a 3X tele-converter or a macro converter. It works best with large aperture prime lenses. It will work with Pentax K-mount cameras and lenses. (Not PKA)

While I am not the original owner, I have this little gem for more than 10 years. It seems work better as a macro converter than a tele converter. The converter is extremely well made. I do not say this lightly. Every part works with a high degree of precision on par with K series lenses.

The glass is clean and fungus free. The adapter is in like new / excellent plus condition. I would consider trading a Pentax fixed focal lens. K version is preferred.

I have heard that Kiron (Kino precision) has made most of the Panagor lenses. It was marketed as Vivitar Tele-Macronet in the U.S.

The Outfit Includes:
~ a Panagor Tele-Macronet 3x Pat. No-1084517
~ a Generic Pentax Rear Lens Cap
~ an Original Panagor Front Lens Cap
~ an Original Panagor Pouch

The accessories alone would set you back by $15.

Reasons for sale: too many lenses and converters / three macro lenses currently in possession / one additional set of Pentax macro rings

More photos

Here are some more taken by this adapter and my 50mm F f1.7.

They were all taken hand held in very bad lighting conditions. So I used ISO1600 on my K10d for most of the photos.
