I've got a few things to sort out before I can list individually but I am thinning out my Macro lenses and accessories so will be selling the following items:

Pentax A 50mm f2.8 Macro

Pentax F 100mm f2.8 Macro

Pentax FA 100mm f2.8 Macro

Pentax DA 35mm f2.8 Macro (HD or non HD, not sure which yet!)

Jessops PKA extension tube set boxed (non modified)

Teleplus PKAF extension tube set boxed (they are not AF but do have the full contact set)

Teleplus 2x PKA Macro MC7 converter (7 element 2x converter with variable macro facility)

another of the above with the glass removed to make an automatic auto extension tube with variable setting

Pentax Close-up lenses 49mm

Pentax AF 160FC Auto Macro Ring Flash, case and all accessories.

If anything is of interest please send me a PM and I'll take some photos.

The A 50mm 2.8 macro is a superb macro lens and doubles as an equally good walkabout. Were it 1:1 it would give the preset MACROTAK a run for its money.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Why does nobody want the F 100?

Lots of gear - but not a lot of idea!

Apologies for my late replies to the PM's I've received - you should all have a reply by now

The AF160FC and F100/2.8 are reserved and the Non-glassed Teleplus Macro Converter has a first refusal offer.

Here's a mini Flickr album of the equipment if you want to see the items and their condition:

I'll list them properly when I get a chance but if you've got any questions please PM me

Top-class service from LennyBloke once again.

The ring flash dispatched very quickly and with bomb-proof packaging (Mrs LTL watched in amusement as I struggled to get into the outer box without destroying it ), arriving safe and well.

Thank you John.
Nigel.

Getting older and grumpier. Taking longer to decide which lens to use today.

K5 with auto-everything lenses
A collection of manual primes to keep me in touch with the pleasures of doing it old-school.

Thanks Nigel - great to deal with you (again), glad the packaging kept you occupied for a while

Going back a while but any of these still available?
Edit: more specifically the 50mm f/2.8?

Yep - still got the A 50/2.8 macro - I'll try to get some photos done later and post them

Here's a few photos of the lens....










..and a bit of detail:

It's not a collectors copy, it's a users copy - it has some silvering marks on the aperture blades, but there is no issue with the aperture - it is snappy and responsive. Coatings are very good, a couple of minor specks (typical for its age) and some dust. Cosmetically it's good and I have the original box but no foam inserts. The focus is smooth (not quite as well damped as some) and responsive, results are superb of course.

Hope that helps?

I do have both a DA and HD-DA 35mm f2.8 macro, although the HD is currently being used by my son-in-law for some magazine photography. I'll dig out the DA later
