eBay Watch: Lot of 12 K-mount lenses (17 bids, $162 final price)

In this new segment, we find items of interest on eBay and present them to you. So what has caught our eye today? A 12-lens lot of K-mount lenses offered by Donovan's Kenmore Cameras. None of the lenses are Pentax-branded. Lenses included in the listing are Sears, Cosina, Tokina, CPC, Kalimar, Hanimex, Soligor, CPC, and JC Penney. Five days remain before the auction closes. The auction is now final! And as always with eBay auctions, please be sure to do your homework!

If you want to research these lenses, B. Dimitrov's K-Mount Lens page is a great starting point, along with the PentaxForums, and the Pentax SLR Talk forum at dpreview.
