"200mm f3.5 Vivitar Auto Telephoto. Built in hood. Scratches, fungus, fingerprints, grime. Otherwise a fairly nice lens. "

Hmmmm..... I'll pass on this one.

I don't see insurance as an option for this auction. No bidders yet. He'll make more money in the shipping than the lenses (if he sells them).

Perfect for an art student -- creating Art with those lenses recontextualizes the fungus and scratches, redefining the entire concept of a "lens" by removing the aperture blades and suggesting that existence is no more than a black cylinder through which energy flows through the fungus and scratches of our own futility, yet remains unencumbered by the diaphragm of human artifice.

Hmm...I think I've been in grad school too long!

how do you not have aperture blades haha. I saw a Soligor M42 135 at store a while back and the blades had so much oil on them it was nasty.

Your self-realized assessments of the efficacy of the subject, vis-a-vis, "crappy lens", in exhibiting an artistic utiitarianism is, in fact, well within the norm of observable data sets.

I was kinda thinking for those wanting to take a picture of all their gear $7 to add an extra couple lenses to the shot would help the boast.
