Vivitar 55mm manual 1:1 macro lens. Pentax PK fit.
Review here; http://www.pentaxforums.com/userreviews/vivitar-55mm-f2-8-1-1-macro.html

100.00 plus postage which to the UK is about 15.00. Payment by Paypal or bank transfer.

OR (which ever goes first I refuse to get rid of both of them)

Sigma 50mm 2.8 manual macro this has the A setting. Pentax PK fit.
100.00 plus postage which to the UK is about 15.00. Payment by Paypal or bank transfer.

Vivitar 2x Macro focusing Teleconverter, works well with either of the above lenses to give extra magnification or with an ordinary non macro lens.
50.00 plus postage which to the UK is about 15.00. Payment by Paypal or bank transfer.


Will post pictures of the lenses later if anyone is interested my indoor photography leaves a lot to be desired though and won't bother if there is no interest.

I can also post sample shots taken with the above when the wind calms down a bit again if anyone is interested.


I really don't want to sell these but apparently I have too many lenses and some have to go.

Kind regards

Hey, come on, Charlotte!
Your macro images are much too good to sell all your stuff & give up.......!

Think again!!

Roger.
The more I look, the more there is to see!

Don't think Charlotte is giving up. I think she's selling this to get something better to embarrass us even further

pm sent about the converter.

Hi Roger,
I'm not giving up - 'tis the only aspect of photography I'm any good at.

Kind regards

Sample image from 2x macro converter and pentax 50mm 1.7 manual lens.

It's pouring hard with rain and blowing a gale so this is the best I could think of.




I'm not used to this combination I usually use it with the macro lens.

I've put it in the gallery so it can be seen larger if you like.

Is the converter PK or PK/A?

I'm sorry to see you are selling these lenses Charlotte - you have posted some great images with both of them. I did toy with the idea of selling my Sigma 50mm F2.8 Macro, but I've decided to keep it now as I've taken some decent shots with it (not as good as yours though).

If you sell, I hope you get a good price.

Charlotte are you nuts?! Some of your best pictures (and my favourites) are taken with your 'haunted' Vivitar 55mm... don't do it!!!

all the best

After taking some sample shots to post to show images taken with these lenses with and without the converter I've had a rethink and have decided to keep them.

I'll have to raise some funds another way.

Thanks for all the messages pms etc. I had absolutely no idea there were people following my progress and enjoying my photos.

Kind regards

I'm so glad you decided to keep them Charlotte and looking forward to seeing some more great images taken with them this coming Spring / Summer.
