    Hey everyone....

    I am putting up for sale two marvelous Hexanon lenses.....the classic 40/1.8 AND the dreamy 50/1.7.

    These two lenses are BOTH in really good condition.....super clean glass (no cleaning marks, haze or fungus), NO dust (and believe me, I look carefully), really sound aperture click stops and silky smooth focus rings. Original caps.

    Lots of people own these....lots of people here......but I think these would be a really nice addition to anyone's new kit that they might be putting together.

    I would like to get $60 (or more) for these.

    So WHAT'S the twist????

    The twist is that I want to donate the proceeds of this sale to Amin in gratitude for putting together and running this site.

    The winner of this sale will make a payment to here:

    https://www.mu-43.com/showthread.php?t=460

    So that's easy right....buy two really nice lenses for a reasonable price??

    WEEEELLLLLL.....not actually THAT easy.....see because I think these two lenses are worth MORE than $60....a lot more. So you can send me a PM with your bid and I will let everyone know what the current bid is (no names....just the $$ amount).

    Bidding closes on Saturday 4/10.

    Remember....proceeds of this sale do not go to me......they will go to the mu-43.com

    Go for it guys.....oh......FREE shipping.

    No new bids.....we're still at $70.

    At this price, you could gift these to someone else.....maybe someone who is just starting off in photography.

    They're a fun little pair.......make a bid. :smile:

    Can these be used on the Lumix G1 with adapter. If so it would fully manual operation, am I correct.?

    Yes, with adapter. You can use Amode by setting the fstop and m mode.
    Great glass for sure. The 40 is better than the Summicron or Nokton.

    Looks like we're winding this baby down.....

    We have ended up with a very generous bid of $140!!!

    Thank you everyone for looking.....and bidding.

    I will be contacting the winner via PM.......ad as soon as Amin lets me know he has received the donation, I will be shipping out the lenses.

    Thanks to the winning bidder......but really I want to thank Amin for putting together a really wonderful place for people to get together.

    Running a website like this takes money and TIME....both of which Amin has given.....and given again.

    Thanks Amin......
