Description

I now have enough autofocus lenses to cover my needs. I'm keeping only three manual-focus lenses: 8/2.8 Michael Lens fisheye, 100/3.5 Olympus Auto-T for vintage Pen F; and 150/4 Super Takumar (Pentax). I'm selling off the rest. I've tried to price these for the common man and am listing them only here at mu-43.com. Mostly, I want to get them out of my house and into the hands of fellow forum members who will appreciate and use them.
I don't know how to grade these, so I'll just say that they're all better than a "beater lens" but less than EX++. I guess KEH would rate them EX or EX+. All perfectly usable, optically and mechanically.

PayPal only; my PayPal address is paul [dot] stregevsky [at] gmail.com. All prices include PayPal and U.S. Postal Service priority shipping to the U.S. or Canada. If you order three or more items, knock off 10 percent from the total!

  1. Lens 01: 50/1.8 Zeiss Planar in Rollei 35mm mount (49mm threads), made in Germany (yes)(was $20) $18. SOLD
  2. Lens 02: 50/1.7 Konica Hexanon AR (55mm threads), (was $20) $18. SOLD.

  6. Lens 06: 200/4 Konica Hexanon AR (55mm threads); see my test shots in the Konica 200/4 Adapted Lens Sample Image Showcase; $45. This lens is very hard to find. (SOLD)

FWIW, some of these are ridiculously cheap. That an easily adaptable Zeiss glass does not sell for $18 brings shame over this forum...

Thanks, Stephan. This is the only forum in which I will be listing this stuff because I want I have benefited so much from this forum that I want to return the favor. I'll just keep lowering prices here until everything is gone.
In truth, I think what we're seeing is that there is so much good, affordable native glass now, in all mounts, that the case for adapted lenses grows weaker by the year. About four months ago, I sold a 20mm F 2.8 East German Zeiss multi-coated lens to KEH. They paid me just $90.

The pics are visible at the end of the post, but if someone clicks on the attachment links in the description it takes you to an Error page.
