[SOLD] K 24mm 2.8, M 28mm 3.8, SMC Tak 135mm 2.5, SMC Tak 135mm 3.5

.

Need to get rid of some wonderful glass.

May the sharpness and color these lenses provide you last you through many holiday seasons! (gotta inject a little Christmas cheer into a sad event like a lens sale... )


K 24 f/2.8 with original caps and original leather box case.... $205 (SOLD)
M 28 f/3.5... $65 (SOLD)
S-M-C Tak 135 f/2.5... $85 (SOLD Pending Payment)
S-M-C Tak 135 f/3.5 with hood... $50 (SOLD)


K 24 f/2.8:

This lens is near-mint, with original black-red leather box case (says "SMC Pentax 2.8/24") 24mm, in a small package, with SMC color and sharpness this lens is famous for.

M 28 f/3.5:

Note that this is not the more common 28 2.8 - this is the more rare, sharper version. It's the second sharpest 28mm I've ever shot after the Vivitar/Komine 28 Close-Focus. Lens is in excellent shape.

S-M-C Takumar 135 f/2.5:

The f/2.5 version - heavy-elemented, precision focus, light-sucking 135mm with full SMC coatings for that scintillating color. Original caps, lens is in excellent shape.

S-M-C Takumar 135 f/3.5:

The f/3.5 version - more diminutive and stealthy than the 2.5 version. Last year I compared this lens to the 50-135 and Sigma 50-150 at 135mm in a shootout, and it produced results that put those fancy expensive lenses to shame. Comes with hood, original caps and is in excellent shape.

I'll provide photos of and from the lenses later.

Quickie shots of the lenses:

And here are some test shots from the 24 that I have uploaded - note that
these shots do not come close to showing what you can do with this
lens on a walkabout, just basically a resolution/FOV test:

Hint: A K 24 2.8 in this shape with case does not fall into your lap often....

Some wide-open shots from the Tak 135 2.5 to show bokeh, etc:

I don't have any shots uploaded from that particular Tak 135 3.5, but I've taken many shots with another S-M-C Tak 135 3.5 (and non-SMC) I have, and will post those if anyone wants to see them. The S-M-C Tak 135 3.5 is an inexpensive, limited-feeling sharpie.

No PM sent - just admiring the brilliant sharp and colourful images from these excellent lenses (and photographer!).
Last one is simply amazing Jay.

I can't believe you are letting the 28/3.5 go - if I didn't already have one . . .

For that matter, if I didn't have a 24/3.5 . . .

Folks, you're missing the boat if you don't snap up this K24/2.8. Just slightly more contrast than the K24/3.5 (essentially the same lens as the Takumar), smaller, lighter, and a tad faster. One of the 70's Pentax great ones.

Thanks!

Here are some snaps I took today with the 24 2.8 - it's freezing here, and my
outdoor shooting time was about 4 minutes, so bear with me if the subject matter
seems limited Just want to show some sharpness and contrast.

First, indoor bokeh examples wide-open:

Here's right about at minimum distance, f/4 I believe:

The K 24 shots - first two were f/2.8, the fence was f/8 and the baseball shots were a combination of f/4 and f/5.6.

I really wanted to get out briefly today to take some nice landscapes and architecture shots with it, but I've been flattened by the flu all day today. It was hard even to get online
