No sample pictures since the K100D I have is broken, but I guarantee it performs at least as well as other 400/5.6s or I'll take it back :)

Bump and a price drop -- now officially a STEAL!

I think if all the posts from the leaders are actually reviewed for content (what a crappy job that's going to be), that list might invert itself...

Item for Sale
Pentax SMC-A 400mm f/5.6 long prime lens

Asking Price
$430

Item Location
United States

Item Description
My first item for sale in a little while is one heck of a lens! This is the awesome and slightly rare Pentax SMC-A (auto aperture) 400mm f/5.6 prime lens. It has a super-long reach for birds and other wildlife, and fantastic sharpness and colors. Since it's an A lens, it also automatically calculates shutter speed in A mode, and lets you adjust the aperture from the body, just like any AF lens. The A function of this lens works perfectly.

The lens itself is a little worn (I prefer to think of it as lovingly used :lol: ), featuring heavy but superficial scratching all over the body. There is a dent in the built-in shade which stops the shade from extending ALL the way, however it still extends about 2 inches. There are some tiny scratches on the front glass, just "micro" scratches and nothing severe, and nothing that will affect image quality. The focus is 110% usable and not difficult at all to turn, but if you have a mint copy of this lens you will notice it is a little bit more stiff. Again, still totally usable in every condition.

Overall, this is your chance to get a fantastic Pentax Prime in subprime condition, but it will still take pictures just as well as a mint condition one. It comes with Pentax front and rear caps, and the built-in collar and tripod mount. Please PM me with any questions or interest, and thanks a lot!

Pentax to join the micro4/3 standard?

m4/3 is seriously where the money is at currently. It's the largest expanding subset in hobby photography. If Pentax wants to try to get on the profit bandwagon again without ripping off its loyal users, joining the m4/3 coalition would be one of the best ways to do that.

Pentax-A 50mm f/1.7 lens

Asking Price
$80

Item Location
United States

Item Description
I have a copy of this lens in excellent condition. There is no damage to the glass, it looks perfect, and there is just some slight wear on the body. Things like minor scratches and a little bit of discoloration. Nothing bad at all, though. The glass again is perfect as far as I can see. No internal problems like fungus either. Functions perfectly with the aperture automatically calculated and adjusted in A mode on all Pentax DSLRs.

I will add pictures shortly. In the meantime, all buyers are welcome. Thanks!

You won't degrade the actual image quality, such as properties like sharpness, coma, chromatic aberration, color representation, etc.

You might, in some rare cases, introduce more flare.

That's it. Period.

Pentax SMC-M 50mm f/1.4 Lens

Asking Price
$90

Item Location
United States

Item Description
I've got an M-series 50/1.4 for sale now. It's in excellent condition. The focusing is smooth as butter, the aperture is without oil and very responsive, there are no really noticeable bits of brassing anywhere, no visible scratches on the glass, and just some light external dust. I see no internal dust, but there may be some tiny specs. Absolutely no fungus/mold/etc. No caps/filters.

Free shipping in the USA, shipping worldwide is very cheap for the 3 to 5-day delivery you get (as opposed to usually waiting 10-20 days for international deliveries).

Item for Sale
Sigma 600mm f/8 Super-Tele Mirror Lens

Asking Price
$200

Item Location
United States

Item Description
I am selling this lens again after it was traded back from a friend on this forum. It's in excellent condition with the original front Sigma cap and a generic rear cap. Just some slight dust and maybe a few very faint brush marks on the glass, not very visible. Absolutely no fungus/etc. Very smooth focus and image quality rivalling that of the Tamron BBAR 500/8 adaptall mirror lens -- but with even more reach!
