Pentax SMC-M 50mm f/1.4. - £70

Pentax SMC-A 50mm f/2.8 Macro (boxed). - £105

Pentax SMC-M 135mm f/3.5. - £25

Sigma Super-Wide 24mm f/2.8 (in PK/A mount). Some small tendrils of fungus under the front-most element that I'm yet to clean. Comes with the Sigma 'Perfect Hood' and a leather case. - £30

Industar 50-2 (50mm f/3.5) in M42 mount. £15

Minolta MD 50mm f/2. - £20

Helios 44-2 in M42 mount. Some cleaning marks to front element, some small scratches on barrel. Can't remember if the focus feels 100% at the short end. - £30

A lovely little diaplan 80mm f/3.5 projector lens adapted to Sony FE mount (covers full frame). £45

S1a with ASAHI light meter - bought from our own Danofmk. Described as working but appears to act as a 'bulb' shutter at speeds less than 1/30s. If you press the shutter quickly at e.g. 1s, however, it will shutter for the 1s. Not sure why but thought worthwhile mentioning for clarity. Looking to recover what I paid. - £20

Voigtlander Ultron 40mm f/2 with close-up lens in PK/A mount. Recently had to buy a replacement close-up lens which is perfect, but will send the second if I find it in the house at any point. £350

Takumar 50mm f/1.4 (7 Element). Excellent with yellowing. - £60

Still have the A35-70 and M75-150 free with any purchase of the above.
Offers welcome! Prices including postage.

I can't see why the A series 50mm macro hasn't moved. This is a stunning lens -- you can put extension tubes on it and you can put a rear converter on it too. It's as good as a walk-around as it is for macro. Put it on a K1 and its resolution is amazing.

Agreed, and this one is in stellar condition and has a silky focus (and box)! It's a beautiful lens but I really am in a drive to consolidate my 'stash'. I've taken some beautiful (in my opinion) photos with this lens too.

Go on guys, make me some offers! I'm eyeing up a new lens so might well be a little more malleable

I gotta help Benz3ne along with this one ...
What more do you want from a 50mm macro lens? Better resolution? Better bokeh? Better colour? These are frost crystals.
