In my zest for using adapted lenses I have put together a nice little collection of legacy glass that I use. Unfortunately the only AF lens I have is a 17/2.8 (which I like a lot). I recently developed a retinal blister in my dominant eye and it makes for some interesting problems when manually focusing lenses. I'd like to pick up a kit lens so I can have some options for when my eyes are just too tired to deal with manual focus. I have a few MF lenses I could throw out there for trade. I'd be interested in either the Panasonic or Olympus kit lens. I'd be open to any kind of combo or trade+cash scenarios.

1. Canon FD 50/1.4 in great shape - I have resisted selling this before since it is a great lens. It's fast and sharp even wide open but the truth is I end up grabbing my Super Tak SMC 50 or my Olympus Pen-F 40 instead when I want this focal length.

2. Vivitar 70-210 (in mint shape) 2.8-4.0 Macro Zoom (the Cosina version) - It's a pretty cool lens but I have the 3.5 Kiron version as well. It's in FD mount.

3. Olympus OM 50/1.8 MIJ with LNIB extension tube. Again, a great sharp lens but It just doesn't get used.

Seriously...no one want to trade? It's not like these lenses are junk. The Canon 50/1.4 and the OM 50/1.8 are both really nice and they're in mint shape.

Oh well.

Alas no...I need the adapters for lenses I still have. I figure any trade will probably have to include some cash unless it involves multiple lenses (which I could do as well).
