I have a couple of orphans I'd like to find homes for. When I was starting out I was helped on several occasions by folks with donations of gear and I'd like to do the same. The rules are simple. I'd like these to go to a student or someone starting out preferably to someone where cost would be an issue (or both). Also the recipient must be willing to pay shipping (I'll ship it as economically as possible). Minolta 50/1.7 I will not lie...this lens is in rough shape. As far as I can tell the glass is mark free and the blades are clean and snappy. It's also pretty dusty inside and the rubber focus ring is a bit loose. Then again it's FREE. M42 bellows This was given to me under the same restrictions as above so I feel I need to pass it along the same way. it's in good shape and works fine. I no longer have any m42 lenses so this needs a new home where it will be loved.
