Sure thing. You asked and you shall receive.
I had a hard time finding pictures in my Ligthroom library, thus why I didn't include any in my OP. I haven't used this lens much as most of my shootings happens inside (weddings, family gathering, etc.).

Item for Sale
Sigma 8-16mm HSM Pentax mount (APSC lens)

Asking Price
385.00 USD

Item Location
Montreal (Canada)

Item Description
Hi! I'm selling my Sigma 8-16mm HSM lens in Pentax mount. I'm the original owner of the lens. It was purchased new in 2016.

Description :
Sigma 8-16mm 1:4.5-5.6 HSM in Pentax mount (for apsc sensor)
Asking price : 385 USD plus actual shipping
(between 10 and 15USD for Canada and the US. Please PM me for a shipping quote if you are outside NA. Thank you.)

It comes with :
- Original Box and paper work
- Original Sigma case
- Canon front lens cap (see pictures)
- Original Sigma Lens hood
- Generic Pentax rear lens cap

Lens works perfectly.
The lens is under Sigma 5 year warranty - which ends in 2021. Since I'm the original buyer, I may have to handle warranty claim (if ever the need be), and I will gladly do so if asked.



Pictures
The pictures I took don't do proper justice to the lens' condition. Don't hesitate to ask further questions or to request more pictures.















Pictures taken with the lens :
** I searched through my Ligthroom library for pictures taken with this lens but strangely, the metadata isn't picking up properly. Might be because I have too old of a Lightroom version or something... What it means is I can't be 100% sure the pictures were taken with the Sigma 8-16mm, but considering I bought this lens for the exact project I'm posting pictures from plus the fact that it was my only UWA lens at the time, chances are pretty good those pictures were in fact taken with the Sigma 8-16mm. That being said, I did stitch quite a few panorama for this project, so some UWA pictures could be from a stitched panorama. However, judging from the original resolution of the pictures I posted, they are not panorama and thus are from the Sigma 8-16mm. I can of course take some new pictures, but it's about minus a thousand degree celcius here in Montreal these days and I don't have particularly nice wide angle scenery around the house. However, should one of you request some specific type shots, I will try to comply.







Thank you.

Item for Sale
MC Zenitar 16mm 2.8 Fish Eye (Full frame lens) M42 (M42 to K mount adapter included)

Asking Price
110.00 USD

Item Location
Montreal (Canada)

Item Description
Up for sale is a MC Zenitar 16mm 2.8 fish eye Full Frame lens
(can also be used on APSC).

Price :
110USD plus actual shipping. Shipping is between 10USD and 15USD, depending on location.

Description :

Lens is excellent condition. It can work on FF and APSC.

EDIT :
A kind member reached out to me to let me know my Zenitar had the aperture actuator pin removed. This converts the lens to permanent manual aperture. This basically allows for simpler use on DSLR bodies (where the pin has to be pressed down so that turning the aperture ring changes the aperture in real time) but severely hinders usage on SLR m42 bodies. Therefore, if you were planning on using this lens on an older SLR m42 body, please consider carefully.
To be clear, the lens will work perfectly on a recent DSLR body - for instance, on my K-3, I would use a standard m42 to k-mount adapter (included), put the lens on my K-3 and shoot away. I control aperture by turning the aperture ring, which closes/opens the aperture as I turn.


Comes with
- M42 to K-mount adapter
- original front cap and k-mount rear cap
- small pouch to carry the lens

Item for Sale
Pentax FA 43mm limited SILVER MIJ

Asking Price
330.00 USD

Item Location
Montreal (Canada)

Item Description
Pentax FA 43mm limited Silver, MIJ version

Price : 330USD plus actual shipping.

Description

- No original lens cap (3rd party lens cap included)
- no Pentax pouch (3rd party pouch included)

This has been my favourite lens since I've acquired it. The lens has often been the one sitting on my camera. The lens is in good condition, but it shows some sign of wear. You can see some scratches on the body, the metal lens hood isn't perfectly round, the inner lining of the lens hood is slowly chipping away, etc. Those are all cosmetic issues and the lens performs perfectly. It is not a mint copy for a collectionneur, but it is still in very good condition.

Pentax-F 50mm 1.7

Asking Price
50.00 USD

Item Location
Montreal (Canada)

Item Description
Pentax-F 50mm 1.7 - full frame lens

Description/Condition
Lens body is in good condition with some sign of wear. Look at pictures for a more detailed description. I purchased this lens from a fellow member several years ago. It had the small broken piece at the filter ring, but it doesn't prevent the use of filters.
My copy is extremely sharp. I find that it's also a very fast focussing lens, albeit not particularly quiet.

Includes :
Metal lens hood (not Pentax branded) and fitting lens cap.
Rear cap.

Head to Head comparison between FA 31ltd and Sigma 30mm f/1.4
Posted By kp0c
Replies: 7
Views: 1,855
I had the 31mm for a little while and now have the much cheaper (older withough HSM) Sigma 30mm 1.4.
First, the Sigma is APSC only, maybe it matters to you, maybe not. The 31mm is of course a FF compatible lens.
I haven't use the 31mm enough to give you a faire comparaison, so I won't do that. I'll however comment on sharpness and share some other random thoughts.
The Sigma is as sharp wide open as any f/1.4 lens I've seen. I will say however that I only use the lens wide open at relatively close range, for portraiture and similar application, so well within 8 meters. Beyond that, it's probably fine as well. Not that I would shoot at infinity and wide open. The center focus point is dead accurate on my K-5ii (I may have calibrated the lens, but that's something I do with all of my lenses anyway). I never noticed any problem with off center point either, but I mostly use center point. The focussing is about as fast a other screw drive lenses in that focal range, maybe a little slower than the DA 35mm 2.4, but nothing to complain about on my side.
As mentioned before, I use the Sigma for portraiture, low light indoor photojournalism and other indoor assignments. I never use this lens hoping to get edge to edge sharpness, so I wouldn't even be able to tell you how it fairs in that regard. Some people say corners and edge are terribles, I've never notice it, but my edges and corners are usually oof anyway.
About rendering, I absolutely love the shallow depth of field this lens provide and I haven't notice any problem in the bokeh either. I don't think it has a lot of character, meaning it seems "normal" most of time. To better explain, I'll try to compare with other lenses. The DA* 55mm 1.4 in comparaison sometimes offer Bokeh that will make you look twice and go "wait, what just happened?" because the Bokeh is either very nervous, or looks strange in some way. It's not a bad thing, but it happens. My 50mm f1.7 will also offer some strange, but lovely, Bokeh as well sometimes. It seems to me the Sigma is more constant in that regards, in the context I use it in anyway. I honestly think it doesn't offer anything crazy, but that it does offer very nice images for a good price and I'm perfectly happy with it. I will say however that I'm never tempted to use it outside in good light condition as I just don't think it would make the image pop as a limited like the 31mm would. But for indoor low light stuff, I think it rocks really good.

The FA 31mm offers a rendering that is more complex to me. I was looking at some shots I took wide open with it and couldn't help but look twice at most of the images. Most of them were snapshots of my kids doing their things, or picture in a book store, etc. I don't know if it was the colours, the contrast, or simply the presence of subtle chromatics aberrations in the transition from in focus to the out of focus zone that made the image special but truth be told, even after selling the lens, I could tell it produced some "special" images for me. Also, when I had it, I was more compelled to use outdoor - I think the coating made for better images of the outdoor colours.

I don't know what you would use the lens for (do tell us if you have an idea, it may help people offer you comparison), but I can recommend the Sigma for anything low light as I believe it offers good sharpness at 1.4 and pleasant bokeh, without being a complicated lens in my view, like some other lenses are. (For instance, I find hard to like the DA 70mm 2.4, but it sometimes just offer me that very nice picture that convince me to keep it, even if I own the 50-135mm that covers the 70mm focal length and is about as fast of a lens (although much bigger, of course!).

Anything over 20$ is subject to be taxed, which is around 15%, and shipping is also about 10$ more expansive. I have purchase dozens of items from the US and abroad, I know what to expect indeed. Using USPS, you mostly get lucky, but sometimes you get taxed, and that's just the way it is.

How many DSLR, or Pentax DSLR, in history, have had a repeated and somewhat frequent problem with a camera function as important as the aperture lever? In those instances, how many recall were issued?
For one to say that there is nothing wrong with the design of the part involved is for one to put his hand in the sand. I would bet all my camera gear that Pentax will never ever use the same mechanism, because simply put, it is likely to break well before the expected lifespan, and that in itself is a cause of recall.

In your real life shooting scenario, is the need to unmount the lens and then mount the TC sometime a problem in the sense that you are missing shots that you could possibly have gotten with a "slower" but possibly more versatile* zoom lens?

I understand everything is a compromise, but still curious how you manage this situation.

*versatile as in fov coverage, not light gathering ability.
