    Hi mu-43'ers!

    Up for grabs are two lenses, both m42 mount I believe used for Pentacon F cameras.

    The first is the 'kit' lens, a Carl Zeiss Jena Tessar 50/2.8

    The second is a "Pentacon" auto 50/1.8 "Multi Coating".

    I have absolutely no use for these, and would rather they went to some use outside taking up my drawer space. I have some pics but have no idea about the usability. The focus rings are pretty stiff on both and the aperture of the first lens seems to require you to push the aperture ring towards the camera before turning to adjust the aperture. The aperture does not click on the second lens. The Pentacon F camera has an internal mechanism for releasing the aperture diaphragm.

    Anyway, $10 each plus shipping and they are yours as is!

    Otherwise they will be donated to the camera museum if they find them of use.

    Alternately, they could be fun to take apart to increase a little of your lens knowledge!
