[SOLD] Kiron 105mm f/2.8 MACRO PK/A (Worldwide)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Kiron 105mm f/2.8 MACRO PK/A

Asking Price
$400 USD

Item Location
Vancouver, Canada

Item Description
Well, I will admit I don't really want to sell this lens, but I really should. I imagine that anybody wanting this will already know that this is a legendary lens! This is the same lens as the Vivitar Series 1 100mm f/2.5 and the Lester A Dine 105mm f/2.5. For those that don't know, this is a true 1:1 Macro of the highest regard!

This copy is very clean, inside and out. It has both the retractable lens hood and the 'A' Setting for full compatibility on dSLRs.

In full disclosure, the cap says 'Vivitar' instead of 'Kiron'

Here are a couple of shots I took with this lens (the white spots on the aquarium pic are from the flash reflecting from bubbles on the side of the tank)

I've reduced the price to $400. This is a really nice copy, so if it doesn't sell atthis price, I'm going to keep it.

Hey Nalla,

This is indeed optically the same lens as the Lester A Dine 105mm macro & the Vivitar Series 1 105mm macro. There are a few differences externally I believe.

From memory, I think there was an earlier Kiron version which did not have the auto aperture or internal lens hood. That was made into the Standard Vivitar 100mm macro which is optically similar (102mm Vs 103mm). The lens coatings did seem to improve; I don't seem to get any CA on this copy.
