    For me, at that price, it better have some Leica or Zeiss glass....:eek: Wait a minute. Weren't you just selling off a bunch of legacy glass. You sir, have LGAS! PS. It looks like some pristine gear and a cool case tho!

    Ha!

    This was more of an investment than a yearning to use it.

    i feel it was a good one, but I've been wrong before. The 135mm is a rare beast, and I've seen them close North of a thousand usd before.

    PS I hate whoever came up with goodwill online auctions. NO MORE 9$ 50MM 1.2s!!!!

    That's an expensive scratch off ticket. I mean, who knows what kind of shape that stuff is in. I always say to myself, 'expect the worst" and pay accordingly. I hope you don't get smoked. It would be different if these were described as being in good condition by someone who knows something about cameras. Yikes....and good luck.

    +1 - I couldn't take that kind of risk. Hope it works out well for you.

    I, too, have Legacy GAS. But so far my flatulence is not costing much!:rolleyes:

    Yeah, I'm having some second thoughts here.

    I know I won't lose anything. Even if the two big boys needed some CLA on my end, it'll still cover my buy in. I just feel stupid. There's no way I'm going to hold onto any of it. I get better deals than this pretty regularly too, so the money thing is clearly an excuse for my horrific GAS.....

    I do, for sure, a have weakness for rare old Minolta stuff. I've owned and sold every lens in the Rokkor/MD system except for this particular 135mm. I shoot with the 100mm f/2 pretty regularly and it is far and away the finest lens I've ever used. The 135mm is supposed to be better. I guess I'll see soon enough :)
