These are the test shots from my US$15 sears 135mm f2.8. Shots are taken at f2.8 with ISO100.

those are old manual focus lenses - can be purchased from ebay @ $20-30 w/ shipping included any time... Sears, JCPenny, you name it.

zeek10d,

First off. Nice pictures

I also have a Sears 135mm f2.8 lens. Seems to be a couple different version of the lens. Love this lens for portraits too.

Fred

For the price guessing some time since they sold them.... all C & N now.

Manual or semi (exp) Auto.... or M42 screw?

Not anymore really since the K100D and then even more so (and those likely most interested) the K10D caught fire.

Those oldie but goodies are getting scarce or quite expensive, especially the primes.

The old film bodies are still dime a dozen but not the lenses.... in fact many are sold together just to get rid of the body.... lens is likely the interest.

You still can - here is the proof (purchased on 03/25/2007)

that was Sears for Ricoh mount, you remove the pin and use it on Pentax *ist or K.

Didn't mean there weren't any but they are getting hard to find real cheap.

That listing was probably helped a lot by (or not for the seller) not having the word Pentax in it, making it something you would really need to look for.
