Description
The following lenses are free; buyer pays actual USPS shipping cost...

I was going to take these to Goodwill but then I thought someone here might be willing and able to fix them...

'buyer' should be willing to use these as-is or attempt repair themselves. Note they are not worth enough to pay for repair in 1st-world countries.

Minolta SR aka MD mount:
Cosina 28mm f/2.8 MC, Japan, 49mm thread. Fair condition BUT focus is stiff and aperture is stuck closed (f/22 presumably).
Glass appears clean.

Tou/Five Star 28-100mm f/3.5-5.5 MC Auto Macro Zoom. Japan. 62mm thread.
Fair cosmetically, few small scratches but lettering is fairly faded. Glass is clear, possibly some small pitting or dust in FE.
Aperture Iris has completely fallen apart, obstructing much of image.
Focus and zoom are gritty.

Tou/Five Star 75-200mm f/4.5 MC Auto Macro Zoom. Japan. 52mm filter thread.
Excellent condition. Glass is perfect.
Aperture Iris stuck open.
Zoom is a bit stiff and creeps.
Otherwise completely usable wide-open.


T-Mount (probably T2 37x0.75mm):
Titar 135mm f/3.5, Japan
Preset aperture.
Very compact. ~49mm filter thread.
Very good condition. Focus smooth.
Has about 9 or 10 aperture blades.
Aperture has 1 loose blade and is stuck about 1/2 closed.
Flange distance unknown.
Will need to retest in daylight.


I can provide sample images of and/or through the lenses upon request.


I'm am interested in other lenses if anyone wants to swap (OPTIONAL).
I know how to fix at least several Rokkor models myself.

I also could really use some adapters to mu-43 or SR/MD or Pentax m42:
FD
Tamron Adaptall 2 -> Mu43 or SR/MD or m42
PK
OM
Konica
C-Mount
Vivitar's version of adaptall.

Payment accepted
PayPal gift.
Or Regular PayPal (buyer adds 3% for this option)

Shipping method
USPS Priority

Shipping charge
Actual

Handling time
1-5 days depending on my travel schedule

Additional comments

This offer is only good for already active members here. Don't bother asking if you've never posted before.

I don't mind if you just need something to practice repairs on, if you have the tools.

I am not including:
Caps or filters
Any mount adapters
