Item for Sale
DA 15mm f/4 - trying to sell fast!

Asking Price
475 USD

Item Location
Las Cruces, NM (United States)

Item Description
I hate to see this little jewel go, but go it must. I bought it new a few years back and it has been an absolutely fantastic lens. Great sharpness and color, incredibly low distortion, this really is one of my favorite lenses. It is in terrific shape, with very little wear on the barrel and not a mark on the glass. It has always had a UV filter attached. The only aesthetic issue are a couple of dings on the lens cap, which it got sitting in my pocket one time. Comes with original caps and pouch. $475 + actual shipping

Item Description
Clearing out the collection, so I have a grab bag of assorted lenses and bodies here. I will try to be as specific as possible, but please contact me for more info. Photos are in a comment below.

M 50mm f/1.4 in very good condition. It pains me to sell this beauty. I have had a number of these and none that are in such incredible condition. The glass is clear, the focus is incredibly smooth, and there are just a couple of tiny scratches in the lens barrel. Honestly, I don't know how a 40-year-old lens has survived this long in this kind of condition. Comes with third-party front and rear caps. $90 + shipping

Yashica Yashinon-DX 35mm f/2.8 lens (M42 mount) in great condition. This is a rare lens that is very well-regarded. It is in magnificent shape, with just a few marks on the barrel and a little bit of dust and fine marks on the glass. You just don't see these beautiful lenses every day. Comes with original front cap and generic rear cap. $45 + shipping

Helios 44M-4 58mm f/2 lens with Cyrillic markings. This lens is in beautiful condition, with almost no wear on the lens barrel, very smooth focus (for a Soviet lens). Nearly flawless glass. For some reason the aperture blades seem to stick at certain apertures when mounted to a body, but not otherwise -- so it isn't due to oil, but apparently some friction someplace when mounted to a body. I've gotten used to its...idiosyncrasies. That's what makes Soviet lenses fun, right? Comes with original (or at least from the same company) front cap and generic rear cap. $40 + shipping

Industar-50 50mm f/3.5 lens with Cyrillic markings. A sweet little lens that takes really unique photos. Always a conversation starter when rubbing shoulders with Canon and Nikon shooters. Slight wear on the barrel and none on the glass. Comes with Takumar rear cap and original (or at least the same brand) front cap. $20 + shipping

K1000 body with new light seals and mirror pad. Older all-metal version. I've cleaned this one up and replaced all the seals, but I just haven't used it. All speeds sound right, but I haven't tested them. It winds just fine, but the exposure counter doesn't work. The meter worked the last time I put a battery in it, but I haven't tested it recently. $40 + shipping

Black Spotmatic SP, currently not working. I bought this as a project because I find them stunningly beautiful cameras. This one is seized up and I don't have the know-how to diagnose and fix it. There is some corrosion in the battery compartment, too. I hope this one can see a new life! $10 + shipping

Every few months since then people have been sure that THIS IS THE MOMENT! Personally, I gave up waiting somewhere around 2008 and invested in old 35mm bodies and a negative scanner instead...

I cannot be the only one who hates the current crop of DSLR strap lugs that sit recessed in the corners of the camera body. Try as I might, I haven't figured out a good way to attach metal rings to them so I can use older camera straps that attach with metal clips instead of the thin nylon webbing of newer straps. Incidentally, I am using a K-30 but this is a problem for a lot of newer DSLRs.

So, does anyone out there have a good fix?

I doubt it...there is no clearance between the inside of the hood and the outside of where a filter would be. You would need a hood that did not widen past the 58mm filter diameter.

I like the black rapid strap for keeping the camera out of the way when wrangling small children. I've left dents in my kids' heads more than once when I had a camera around my neck -- "Sure, let me lean down to pick you u-" SLAM! :o

Why is it better to have more focus points?
Posted By Finn

Shallow DOF portraiture. Recomposing shifts the focal plane; when added to the already substantial imprecision of AF points, it can easily ruin a photo. Now, if Pentax used Hasselblad's focus adjustment system, I'd be all over center-and-recompose. Maybe some day!

As a student I got really into old screw mount primes due to financial necessity and never looked back. :) They aren't as cheap as they were 6 or 7 years ago, but still pretty darn reasonable for what you get.

Oh, and welcome to the forum!

The kit lens is the best bang for your buck at the wide end, bar none. Pick one up cheap in the PF marketplace...and I'm not just saying that because I'm selling a couple. ;)

I totally get the impulse for primes...I much prefer them myself, but cheap and wide is a challenge. You mentioned going longer. You can get an M or K 135/3.5 for around $50 on KEH, or a 200/4 for a bit more as I recall.

Unless you need it for 35mm, skip the FA20 and go for the DA21. You can always pick up an FA20 in 2038 when Pentax finally releases a 24x36 DSLR. :lol:

***Photos in thread below***

For sale are the following:

K200D body, in very good shape. There are a few fine scratches on the rear LCD, but the thing works like a champ. Such a great workhorse of a camera body. Shutter count is just 10,783. Comes with original box and papers, but a generic body cap. $180 + actual shipping SOLD

FA 50mm f/1.4 AF lens. Glass is absolutely flawless, but there are some minor scuffs on the outside of the lens barrel. This is one incredible lens, but I've got to make room for more fast 50's. :lol: Comes with original box and caps. $215 + actual shipping SOLD

DA 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 II AF lens. Barely used, but there are some minor scuffs on the rubber zoom ring. Glass is perfect. Comes with original box, papers, hood, and caps. $60 + actual shipping SOLD

DA-L 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AF lens. This one has also hardly been used, but there are some minor scuffs on the zoom ring. Glass is in perfect condition. Comes with original front cap and generic rear cap, but no box. $35 + actual shipping
