[SOLD] Zuiko, J-9, Pentacon 135mm, Tak. 35mm, MX, etc.!

Hi everyone! It saddens me to see these go, but I did a couple of big impulse purchases (damn Bing cashback!) so what needs to be done needs to be done. I have for sale the following:




[SOLD]Pentax MX: $20

Has 2 big problems, one, self timer is loose and not working, and two, it's got the infamous sticky mirror. Mirror would stick once every few dozen shots, requiring you to take the lens off and manually flip the mirror back down to continue use.

Besides that, shutter is firing great at all speeds (and accurate as far as I can tell), and light meter is working and accurate enough to expose a roll of reversal film (Provia 100f) without problems. Light seal & mirror shock foam could use a refresh.

[On Ebay w/BIN/OBO]Konishiroku Konica I: $125

Has the desirable Hexanon 50mm f2.8 lens.


Optics: great, 9/10, no major scratches, fungus, haze, etc.
Mechanics: shutter firing great at all speeds, wind/rewind sans problem, and aperture opening and closing fine BUT, there is one blade that looks misaligned (see pic). As far as I can tell, it's not hindering the blades to open and close to the right sizes, but you may want somebody to take a look at it.
Cosmetics: 8/10, great for a 60 year old camera! :-D

comes with original leather case in pretty good condition.

Pentax Spotmatic: $20

The original spotty, working great. Shutter good, light meter good (ran several rolls of color film, all coming out great). Just one problem, the pentaprism housing is ever so slightly shifted to the right, creating a step about 0.5mm in width just above the light meter switch. This makes turning on the light meter switch a bit of a hassle, as you need to help it up. See pic.

Rollei HFT Planar 50mm f1.8 (QBM/Canon EF): $80

Awesome awesome lens, basically the same lens as the Voigtländer Color-Ultron 50mm f1.8 (they even look identical), sharp wide open and beautiful bokeh, and great color rendition. Unlike the Color-Ultron, the rear element doesn't interfere with the 5Ds mirror (that's why I got it, even though I have the Color-Ultron).

Optics: fabulous 9/10, no major scratches, fungus, haze, etc., just usual dust specks inside.
Mechanics: great 8/10, smooth focus, aperture ring, snappy oilless blades
Cosmetics: great, 8/10, with very minor scruffs.

Comes with QBM->EF adapter and 3rd party front and rear (EF) caps. One problem with the el-cheapo QBM adapter is that the flap that's supposed to hold the aperture pin down doesn't do a good job so sometimes, the blades will only stop down to around f5.6-f8 or so. Probably can fix by adjusting the flap, or better yet, just get a better adapter :-D

[SOLD] Pentax-M 50mm f1.7: $35

Optics, fantastic 9/10
Mechanics, great, smooth focus, snappy aperture ring/blades, no oil 9/10
Cosmetics, some scruff 7.5/10

Comes with after market front caps, but unfortunately no rear cap (came with a body that I want to keep)

http://picasaweb.google.com/toycamerasonline/M50?authkey=Gv1sRgCJrtj9rYjd-ClgE#

[SOLD] Olympus Zuiko Auto-T 85mm f2: $300 OBO

Optics, absolutely fantastic 9/10
Mechanics, flawless, smooth focus, clickety aperture ring, snappy aperture blades, with just a hint (a streak) of oil, which does not impact open/close 9/10
Cosmetics, some wear on aperture ring, but overall good.

Comes with original front & rear caps plus genuine Olympus/Zuiko metal hood designed for the 85/2.

[SOLD!] Jupiter-9 85mm f2: $95

Optics, fantastic, 8.5/10, with some dust specks inside
Mechanics, 7/10, smooth focus ring, but aperture preset aperture ring doesn't click (the ballbearing seem to have come loose). The aperture ring itself opens/closes smoothly, and aperture blades are super oily, just like these Russian lenses are supposed to be :-)
Cosmetics, great 8/10, with some wear on the body.

Comes with 3rd party front & rear caps.

M42 mount

Picasa Web Albums - Toy Cameras - J-9


[SOLD!] Penatcon 135mm f2.8: $85 OBO

The true bokeh monster with 19 aperture blades, with built-in hood, full metal construction, not the wimpy plasticky 6 bladed MC version ;-)

Optics, fantastic 9/10, some dust specks
Mechanics, great 9/10, smooth focus & aperture
Cosmetics, 7/10 with some scruff and scratches here & there.

M42 mount

[SOLD!] Super-Takumar 35mm f3.5: $45

You know what it is, the ultra-sharp 35.

Optics: Great, 8.5/10, some dust specks
Mechanics: smooooth as butter Takumar focus, aperture clicking and snappy, A/M switch working fine
Cosmetics: Good 8/10, just very minor scruffs

M42 mount

[SOLD] Vivitar 2x Macro Focusing Teleconverter (PK mount): $75 OBO

I looked for a good copy of this for a looooooong time, only to end up finally getting it and not putting it to good use. Really should go to somebody that can utilize it.


Optics: great, 8/10, some dust specks but no major scratches, fungus, etc.
Mechanics: smooooth 9/10
Cosmetic: take a look, 9/10

[SOLD!] Olympus Macro focusing rails: $50 OBO

For ye Zuiko fans. Not much to say. Great rail in great shape. Just not being put to use. Working smooth.

[SOLD!!] Nikon Nikkor-S.C Auto 50mm f1.4: $10

It's an as-is status.

Optics: 5/10, many scratches on front and rear
Mechanics: 7/10, very light (i.e., loose feeling) focus ring, endemic of old Nikkors. Aperture ring/blades are great, however.
Cosmetics: 3/10, I've seen few that look worse than this POS :-D

With all that said, it does take great shots. Really a testament to how bad a shape a lens can be in without it impacting the image at all.

As usual, you pay shipping, I pay Paypal, but you pay cross-boarder fee (3.9%) if you are outside of US.


I'll keep these up here (and my other favorite forum, MFlenses) for a couple days before the rest go up on auction sites.


Thanks for looking!

Nice collection. That Zuiko is REALLY pretty. Any chance it could be adapted to P/K?

I think there are a couple of threads here that deal with a non-destructive mount conversion. I'm sure it will work for the 85/2. You won't be able to "adapt" it though, as in, attaching an adapter to it to use with PK mount.

All Zuiko lenses are wonderfully compact and high quality :-) Believe me, it saddens me to see this go, but for 85/2 on my Canon, I use my AiS Nikkor almost exclusively, and I'm planning to get an FA 77 for my Pentax, so the Zuiko really just sits unused. Which is a shame, cuz it's such a great little lens :-)

Someone snatch up this Pentacon

This is one of the very good 135 2.8's... A bokeh monster if there ever was one.

I have wanted one for a long time, but I sit here with at least 5 if not 6 135's...


If you have ever wanted a fast 135 with great OOF area... this is the ticket!

The Zuiko is now up on Ebay w a BIN/OBO offering, if you prefer the extra (?) security that Ebay gives you.


It turns out one of things I sold above turned up DOA due to my bad and I had to give a full refund. Meaning I need to part with more stuff that I'd rather keep, but c'est la vie :-(

Added Pentax M 50/1.7 at the top in great shape. The macro focusing teleconverter will go up on Ebay soon.

PM Sent

It appears that the etiquette here is to inform everyone that I've sent PM regarding the 50mm f/1.7.

I'm brand new here so if I make a mistake or two , let me know. Thanks!
