    I am listing seven KH AR's lenses on eBay, from the 50's up through the 200mm. All are in excellent to exceptional condition, with one of them new. All are priced well below market value with no reserve. For those of you new to Micro 4/3rd photography, these lenses are compact and well suited to adaptation on our modern short flange-to-sensor bodies.

    The auctions end June 27th, 2010

    With summer upon us, the market has quietened down and I expect these will offer considerable value. As an example, my pristine 85mmf1.8 opens at 57.50, and the normal selling range for this lens is $262.50 to $401.00

    Good luck. Identify yourself as a member of this forum and I will negotiate a price reduction with you upon your winning the lens. Buy the lot and receive a valuable freebie.

    Look for my auctions under the moniker 'fringeremnant'.

    Street;

    I've gone sauerkraut. Zeiss, Leitz, Leica and Pany/Leica. Just bought the PL25mm1.4 last night and have to pay for it. Zeiss 200mm/2.8 coming in.... and the 300/f4 on order. Plus, going to get into the Contax G system cameras for some good old fashioned film work. Really miss the silver grain.

    I have some fine examples of collectible Minoltas that I won't sell, like the 50mm macro, new, boxed w/ papers, just in.

    The Konicas going out are a prized lot.... someone will be very happy, especially if they are from here and buy the lot. I'll even throw in an extra 57mm

    Best,

    Bokeh D

    Your description for the 200mm lens includes a paragraph describing the 135mm! There are no bids yet, so I think you can change the text.

    Good luck with the sales :)

    Boy thats a major shift in lenses, the PL25mm is a great lens I dont have it but it rates well, center sharpness is exceptional.
    Good luck with the new glass and shed a tear for the old :wink:

    Just far too much overlap and duplication. Trying to keep it simple, usable on a daily basis.

  10. Hey Bokeh -

    You're a poet too. Whoever wins these lenses is going to feel happy to have made the purchase. I had promised myself to stop buying lenses, but I had to put a watch on a few.

    One quick question. Does the 200mm really have a "built in mounting plate" for a tripod? It doesn't show on the photo and was not common in the 200s of that time.

    Hello arpoador;

    Thanks for the heads up... I should have said 'mounting plate of the camera'. My hand fell off the keyboard.

    Hopefully I can alter the information on the auction. Many thanks!

    any idea about shipping costs to the UK BD?

    I bet, by the way, that there are plenty of watchers who will bid up at the last minute ... (check the prices for completed listings of similar) ... I bet they won't sell cheap (or at least, not all of them)

    Hey pdh... I have around twenty responses to questions of shipping Worldwide, the UK among them. Each lens is a different weight... and different delivery models adjust the price dramatically. Take a look!

    It's my first auction, so don't really know what to think. But, thanks for the encouragement.

    aaargh! I missed the 50mm 1.4 by a dollar and then forgot to bid on the 57!

    but you got some decent prices in the end I see
