    I will give you your first legacy lens, a canon fd 50 1.8 if you pm me your address and $10 for shipping. You will have to buy an adapter so I'd say for about $30 in total and you should be good. That is if you want!?!

    Another lens too.

    Hi LegacyLens. Nice Name!

    I noticed you commented on one of my photos, so I will send you a gift of this tiny Taylor Hobson 25mm f1.9 lens that shot the photo at the bottom of the page of the link below. It on a C-mount to Micro 4/3 adapter so it is ready to shoot when you get it. It didn't come with a front lens cap, so I made a very strange one from a rubber cane tip.

    It's from a Bell & Howell 16mm movie camera and is only 1.5"long x 1.25" dia (40mmx30mm). As you can see it vignettes wide open in this photo. As the aperture gets smaller, so does the image so eventually it becomes a full circle. Your camera may have features to compensate for this or you can shoot in a 3:2 or 1:1 ratio. PM your address.

    Good luck and let me know when you post some photos.

    It warms my heart to see such generosity in this community -- this is the reason I keep coming back here. :th_salute:

    LegacyLens, when you get your new lenses, please be sure to post some pics.
