Hi - You wrote that the focus is "snug" - more so than your experience with other manual focus lenses?

Item for Sale
Pentax P-KA 28mm f2 lens

Asking Price
350

Item Location
New York City (United States)

Item Description


More images of the exact lens for sale (taken just this evening) can be seen here: Flickr: s.kunstadt's stuff tagged with pka28mmf2

I would like to sell my smc PENTAX-A 1:2 28mm lens. Includes front and rear caps pictured.

I have rated the condition as "Good" according to the PF condition guide. Overall the cosmetic condition is excellent. There are a few small areas of minor brassing on some edges/ridges, and some scuffs on the rear of the mount from attaching/detaching the lens. It looks great though. And the mechanical/optical condition is fantastic. I do not see any marks, significant dust, fungus, oil, haze, etc on the glass or diaphragm blades. aperture clicks and stops down snappy.

It's a gem! great FAST f 2.0 aperture, great 28mm focal length is the perfect exact "normal" lens for APS-C digital. In some tests I did for fun I found this lens to be significantly sharper than a voigtlander SL-II 40mm f/2 lens on a Canon 5d mkII.

This also has the all-important "A" position on the aperture ring, so that the aperture can be controlled from the camera while the lens can be used to view wide-open.

Please make note of the terms above and below.

If you are in NYC and want to pick up in person, obviously you will avoid the shipping fee.

I will give priority to those interested by the order of PM receipt, however please also post a quick reply here in the thread so that others know what is going on.

Thank you for looking! Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions.

Please read the description above. The K55/1.8 lens is not included in this sale.

The K10d is still available.

---------- Post added 07-08-2012 at 12:54 AM ----------

I guess I should have mentioned what I would accept in a trade...

I suppose I would trade for an FA50/1.4 or FA35/2 or FA43/1.9(MIJ, Black), +/- cash.
Or maybe something related to Mamiya 6 or 7, or Large Format film (lens or camera).

Sorry if that's not specific enough, but I didn't really have something particular in mind. But I love cameras! so if the right thing were offered I would consider it.

Item for Sale
Pentax K10D all original accessories, box, spare battery

Asking Price
250 USD OR BEST OFFER

Item Location
New Haven, CT (United States)

Item Description
Hi all,
I'm selling my first digital SLR camera, my special one, my K10d!

Please note that shipping and any PayPal fees are included in the price! First $250 **OR BEST OFFER** gets my k10d - straight-up, no qualifiers.

Shutter count, checked by me just now in PhotoME is 10,377 actuations. Firmware 1.30.
Everything Works Properly!

It's never been dropped, or even used in damp/dusty conditions. This thing was my baby.
There are a few very small surface marks, and small, very light scratches in the lcd cover that I can only see when I hold the camera right up to my face. There is a little bit of whitish accumulation (sweat?) in the pleather on the hand grip, which I'm sure would come right off if it bothered you.

I don't know what else to say - this is in great condition, still works beautifully, and will be missed! Please ask any questions you may have.

You'll receive the original box with all the packaging and accessories (cables, manual, etc.) that was there when I bought it (I did cut out the UPC code for a rebate though).


IMAG0165 by s.kunstadt, on Flickr
Neither the lens nor the pictured strap is included (the original PENTAX strap is, though).

More photos:
Flickr: Search s.kunstadt's photostream
please have a look at all these other photos to see the whole camera and understand its condition - they are part of the description.

Here is a shot at mfd and f22 to show the sensor - I have not tried to clean it since I was last using it - about 1 year ago. I think the larger spots would come right off, but I'd rather you handle that than me at this point.

Priority will be established by pm receipt order - but please post a short reply in the thread as well.

Thank you for looking:)

I've decided now's the time to rebuild and upgrade my kit. So, I have the following items for sale or trade:

Please note: ALL PRICES ARE TOTAL - THEY INCLUDE SHIPPING AND FEES. THE PRICE YOU SEE IS THE PRICE YOU PAY


SOLD smc PENTAX-DA 1:4 12-24mm ED AL [IF], $670-->$660. DA 12-24mm f4 ultra-wideangle zoom lens. "Like-new -" condition. Bought new from Adorama. Includes ALL original packaging, accessories, paperwork, etc.
There's really no marks on it anywhere, and I've had a filter on the front since it came out of the box. The only cosmetic issue is a region of surface scratches on the outside of the lens hood. Of course, no fungus, haze, oil on blades; aperture, focus, zoom all great.
B+W 77mm slim 010 MRC clear filter with Schneider push-on cap is $60 extra.
Pics of/with

SOLD PENTAX LX, $300 --> $270 --> $240. Early version shutter release lock. 35mm k-mount professional SLR, bought used on this forum. Good condition. with body cap, strap, hand grip, FA-1 finder.
The king of pentax 35mm slrs, the only true pro model they ever made. This one is in good used condition. overall it is clean, but there are some scratches on the prism housing, grip, and baseplate (these are minor), and the leatherette is beginning to peel from the back. There are a few dust specks in the viewfinder. I had this serviced at Berry Pro Camera in nyc after I bought it two years ago, but I think it still has some stickiness in the mirror action. Otherwise, mirror, meter, speeds, winding all are great. The inside is nearly mint. I've sold off the Grib B separately, so it will not come with the camera.
Pics of/with

SOLD SMC PENTAX 1:3.5/28, $130 -->$120. k-mount 28mm wideangle lens, bought used, "excellent" condition. with generic caps, 52mm Vivitar UV-Haze filter, MIJ.
Brutally sharp and distortion free, fantastic focus feel. This is THE ideal focal length as a normal lens for an APS-C sensor camera (its FL matches exactly the diagonal measurement of the sensor). Minimal dust (less than I'd expect for its age), almost completely mark-free barrel. Of course, no fungus, haze, oil on blades; aperture, focus, click-stops all great.
Pics of/with

SOLD SMC PENTAX 1:1.8/55, $80. k-mount 55mm f/1.8 fast normal lens. bought used, "good" condition. with generic rear cap only.
Also brutally sharp and renders beautifully - f1.8 bokeh! This has been my go-to lens for taking pictures of things or people. I love the extra 5mm over a 50 as well, since it gets it really close to the classic 85mm fov. Functionally perfect (no fungus, haze, oil on blades; aperture, focus, click-stops all great). cosmetically, it has minor brassing on the aperture ring, a bit of internal dust, and two small coating marks, one each on the front and back, probably about the size of a grain of sand. As far as I have noticed, these have absolutely no effect on image quality.
B+W 52mm neutral 007 MRC filter is $30 additional.

DA 15/4 Limited

I have created a profile for my DA 12-24 F4 ED AL [IF] using my K10D.

The Arch E 36x48 chart w/ 15x23 checks (144pt) was used.
Images were shot in RAW @ 12, 15, 18, 19 (i was trying to do 20), and 24mm @ f/4, f/5.6, and f/8 (also f/11 @ 12mm).
Focus distance was adjusted for each FL, from ~4ft to ~8.5ft.
I enabled all corrections for the profile: vignetting, CA, and Geometric.

I hope to make profiles for the K 55/1.8 and K 28/3.5 soon as well.

looks like its got some intense processing - ex03 looks sooooo digital. that sharpening and NR look nasty at large magnification - fruit does not look like that IRL.
otherwise, they look nice - i'm sure they'd print great. and at screen size they look fantastic.
