    Nikon 55/1.2, F3 (Parts Repair), Pentax Bellows Unit II, Pentax Viewfinder Magnifier

    Looking to sell some stuff that doesn’t get enough (or in some cases any) use. Looking to sell some stuff that doesn’t get enough (or in some cases any) use. I have positive feedback on Fourthirdsphoto, FredMiranda, Pentaxforums and GetDPI as Albino_BlacMan and on ebay as ctp046.

    All prices include shipping unless otherwise noted. I accept most payment methods. All prices are negotiable and I'm happy to do package deal. If any of my prices are way out of line feel free to fire me a PM.
    I’m also interested in partial trade in exchange for a OM-D/RRS L-Plate/Panny 25/1.4/Extra Battery

    Nikon 55/1.2 - $375 – Lens is in excellent condition. When I purchased it, it has a lot of internal dust so I sent to Essex for a cleaning. Now it’s like new. Focus is smooth and aperture is snappy. Glass is pristine. Obviously no fungus or haze. Comes with front and rear caps plus an old Nikon 52mm filter. 55/1.2 was AD'd by Nikon. Original owner said "The conversion was done by Nikon back in 1988. That was also the last year that they did it because AF was then becoming the norm."







    Nikon F3 with Motordrive (MD-4) - $150 OBO – Just tested the F3. Shutter release isn't working without the motor drive attached for some reason. This is supposed to be easily fixed with a CLA. The camera was recovered in Cameraleather Restoration Black Leather. The rubber grip was replaced with leather which I think makes it look much cleaner and might even provide better grip than the rubber piece that used to be there. Meter is accurate and all shutter speeds appear to be correct. MD-4 works like it is supposed to. The camera is in fairly good condition, but shows some brassing on the prism and around the edges. The camera is also missing the motor drive cover. Vericolor II included upon request.
    Notes: I'll throw in an 8x10 sheet of recovering leather if anyone wants to cut their own replacement for the Md-4 (this would make it match the F3).










    Pentax Bellows Unit II - $70 – These are in good condition. Everything seems to work as it should. I can’t really see anything to suggest these have ever been used. Leather seems to be fine with no light leaks but I haven’t tested them.



    Pentax Viewfinder magnifier - $20 + shipping - good condition except it won’t snap shut.

    A little bit more info on the magnifier:
    It's a strange little device. You can see in the picture that it sticks out quite a bit. I would guess that the magnification is 2x or 3x. You can't see the whole viewfinder when it's down (infront of the eyepiece), just the centre portion of the focus screen (the split prism part on manual focus cameras). To deal with this it can flip up.
    It's hard to explain the "won't snap shut"Because it can flip up and down it has a little ball that fits into a hole. This should make it possible for it to lock into the "down" position. However, it doesn't lock into this position. One thing to note though is that when your eye is against the magnifier it holds it down for you (so I don't think its a big deal that it doesn't lock/snap, but that's for you to decide, not me).


    I know it fits spotmatics and my Pentax k2. I'm not sure about anything else (so I don't know about your cameras.


    A quick search and it shows up here: http://www.bdimitrov.de/kmp/misc/focus/index.html under magnifiers. This says 2x. Its not the one in the magnifier-M or magnifier-FB picture though.


    The first link under magnifiers ( http://www.bdimitrov.de/kmp/misc/focus/magnifier.jpg ) shows it in the flipped up position.

    F3's non-firing issue without the drive might be a loose wire on the battery box, if nothing turns on with batteries in the box. Had that happen with my last F3.

    Anyway, glws
