    Picked up all this for $7 off Goodwill.

    -Two leather film cases.
    -Two cable releases.
    -Shutter button for some unknown camera
    -Cokin Filter - Marked "A -057- X". I have another like this. Wonder what they do.
    -Fuji 1.4 teleconverter for a dl-200
    -Miranda 50mm 1.8
    -Sears 135mm f2.8 in FD mount
    -Fivestar 80-200 in Konica mount with dented filter ring.

    Miranda is an orphan mount with no adapters for micro 43.The system was rated well by Consumer Reports back in 1970 and I bought one back then. Hence, I still have a 2X converter that could be cannibalized with a M43 adapter for a home built adapter.

    The Sears could be useful too.

    A test with the FiveStar.

    Lucky guy! I'm curious as to how the Sears lens performs.

    Not lucky at all. I think the !35mm and the zoom are worth about 5 bucks each. The Miranda is worth nothing, being orphaned. However, it looks like I can fab an adapter.
