[SOLD] Pentax-A 50/1.2, Vivitar Sries 1 105mm macro, Sigma 17-70mm, Pentax case for A

I unexpectedly picked up some extra lenses recently (damn LBA) and I've had to make some difficult decisions on what to sell and what to keep. I've also decided that I still need the DA* 16-50mm so that is what I'm after for trade. I will not make any sales for a few days as I will give preference to someone who has a 16-50mm to make a trade. I will keep track of who contacts me first for each item and make sales after I get a trade or if I get no trade after a few days.

1. Pentax-A 50mm 1:1.2 with genuine Pentax UV filter and Hood
This was the hardest to decide to sell, but I find that I really don't use it as much as I would like and I now have an AF 50mm that I do use more. The lens is in Excellent condition. Perfect glass, aperture blades and mechanical condition. There are a few small dust specks inside and the body shows only the slightest signs of use. I tracked down an original Pentax 52mm UV filter that I always keep on it and an original hood that is in its own leather case. I will also include a soft leather case that I have always stored the lens in.

USD$500 + shipping

2. Vivitar Series 1 105mm 1:2.5 Macro 1:1

Yes, the legendary Vivitar macro. A truly excellent macro lens. This one does not have the original caps or case but the lens itself is in excellent condition. Barely any signs of use with perfect glass, aperture blades and smooth focus.

USD$325 + shipping

3. Sigma 17-70mm 1:2-8-4.5
This is such a great replacement for the kit lens. Has great reach, great IQ and a really handy macro ability. But, I want the constant 2.8 and weather sealing, so it's time to part. All the important stuff (glass, aperture blades, AF etc) are perfect and the body has only the slightest scuff marks from use. It comes with all the original caps, hood, box and paperwork. I am also including a set of 3 Bower 72mm filters - UV, CPL & ND4 - that have used exclusively with this lens.

USD$280 + shipping SOLD

4. Pentax HG-115E hard case for A* 85mm
I came across this case in mint condition and had to grab it, not knowing what lens it was for. I wish I could afford the lens to fit in it but alas, it is not to be. At least I can pass it on to someone who can make good use of it. This case is MINT! If you're after this case, this is the one you want.

USD$30 + shipping

As always, I'm happy to answer questions and provide more pictures upon request. I prefer to ship CONUS but will also ship international. I usually ship USPS priority and will provide insurance at buyers expense. Include your Zip with a PM so I can quote shipping. Preferred payment through Paypal.

Thanks for looking

The A85 case is sold and I as I have had no trade offers, I have replied to the firsts in line for the lenses to sell.

Sorry to all those I hae not replied to individually but I have been very busy and have recieved a lot of PM's about these items. If anyone passes on a lens I will then contact those who PM'd me next about that lens ASAP. I will also try to update the sold status ASAP too.
