Various k mount and M42 primes, and a zoom


Link Posted 04/01/2021 - 10:48
Having a clear out to try and raise funds to add another lens to the K collection, inspired by everybody's favourite Pentax retailer listing a few on the forum.

Ensinor 24mm f2.8 - m42 mount

Miranda 24mm f2.8 - k mount

Vivitar 35mm f2.8 - M42 mount (whoever made this knew what they were doing - the build quality is sensational)

Vivitar 55mm f2.8 macro - k mount (ditto re the build quality)

Tokina SZ-X 28-200mm 3.5-5.3 - k mount

Nothing fancy, but all working properly with clear glass. All have branded front caps and a rear cap too.

I want these to sell, so if there's anything you fancy, make me an offer and I doubt I'll turn it down!

Happy to post photos or give more specifics on request.

I may be swayed by the Ensinor if you could give me an idea of price.

If it's anything like mine, the Miranda 24mm is surprisingly good.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Likewise the Vivitar macro...

I have the Vivitar 55mm in M42 and it's a superb lens, extremely sharp even wide open. I also have a Vivitar 35/2.8 in M42, made by Tokina (serial number starts with 37), if this is the same then it's also a very good lens.

I'm tempted by the 55mm to have it in K-mount but I have the A 50/2.8 macro, even though it only goes to 1:2 magnification.

A few photos as requested

The Ensinor first- couple of points there, there are minor cosmetic markings to the filter ring, but filters go on and off with ease (I've tested this morning) and I don't have an ensinor front lens cap, but I'll send it with a lens cap of some other type.

Both look great.

Thanks for all the interest. Much more than I was expecting!

The Ensinor and the macro have now gone.
