I've picked up a couple of interesting deals courtesy of my brother's bag of Minolta SRT gear. Inside was a mystery zoom, a creamy/silvery Elicar 35mm f/2.8 and a Rokkor-X MC 50mm f/1.4. That latter clearly outpoints my Rikenon/PK fifties for build and brightness, so an MC/MD adaptor is on its way for IQ tests. The Elicar apparently also was marketed as Soligor and perhaps Vivitar (at least some Elicars were), and online searches suggest it may be of Komine manufacture, a well-respected Japanese optics maker. On the Pentax/PK front I won an SMC-M 135mm f/3.5 for a nice price. Sure I prefer f/2.8 or even 2.5, but those are much heavier; I'm more likely to carry a 270g lens (with built-in hood!) than a 470g (that's what my seldom-used, recently-sold Rikenon XR 135/2.8 weighed). I've a few other lowball bids out that will likely fail, but this gives me the Oly 17mm plus 35, 50 and 135 for now. Something in the 70-100 range would be nice but I cannot afford to get greedy! Anyone with knowledge of the Elicar 35 by any other name, or Rokkor 50mm lenses, I'd like to hear more about these. I'll post something later this week when the adaptor arrives.
