[SOLD] Focal PK 80-200mm zoom lens w/box

Focal PK 80-200mm zoom lens w/box - $19 plus $5.95 shipping in US

This is a nice, well cared for lens that could get somebody started on telephoto shooting and limited macro for not too much investment. The box is beat up and missing some flaps, but the lens looks very nice, with clear glass and excellent mechanical functioning. No "A" contacts, so only stop-down metering, but an excellent minimum focus distance of under 3 feet (<1 meter) at all focal lengths which allows a variety of close up pictures to be taken. "Macro" is 1:4, so probably not a shooter for little bugs, but working distance is great, good for distant flowers (and big butterflies?). I've never had much luck with any long lenses, so no good sample wildlife shots, but I can say the lens is a little dreamy wide open, but sharpens up nicely with stopping down.

My wife says some camera stuff has to go, apparently she wants to be able to see our guest room desk, so this lens could be yours. Happy to refund your money if the lens is in anyway other than as described; also happy to send it internationally, although of course shipping will be more. Ask any questions, and thanks for looking!

Nick

Dreaded STUCK problem

Hi, Nick -- I have used this lens happily on my old K1000 for many years.

However, when I got my first Pentax Digital, the K110D, I mounted it and it became stuck. I later found this to be the result of the dreaded Richoh pin.

It cost me almost $100 USD to have the lens taken apart and off of the camera body.

Purchasers might wish to be advised of that potential problem with this otherwise fine zoom -- and how to disable it.

Yours,
Mark

Don't think it is the case with this lens.

This lens has a "pure" PK mount, no electrical contact. There is nothing that causes it to get stuck!

Here's the KR mount that can get stuck:

SOldBear is exactly right, no Ricoh pin on this one. I would certainly warn people about that, if the lens had it, and if for some reason I hadn't already removed the darn pin. Thanks for the heads up, though, Mark, I like that we all watch out for each other here.
