sakar lens

I have two sakar camera lenses, one reads "sakar aux telephoto lens distance to object 2M-00 made in japan" the other says same except "wide angle" are they worth anything or can I get an adapter to try them on a k20d they have a smaller screw on connection, I have had the lenses for over 20 years which have never been used still in plastic wrapper and leather case with front and rear lens caps on. If I remember correctly I might have received these with a ricoh camera I broke and threw out years ago, I'll post a photo of them as well a little later. They appear to be very well made and i guess considered prime ? lenses......Thanks Jeff

Sorry to disappoint, but they probably aren't worth very much unless you can find a completist collector. The important bit is in bold "sakar aux telephoto lens" - they would have been designed to screw onto the front filter mount of a standard lens (particularly on a camera with a fixed lens - was your old Ricoh a fixed lens rangefinder?) to give a (short) telephopto and (modest) wide angle effect. The results weren't usually that wonderfull.

You can buy similar accessory lenses and mounts to work on some digital compacts.

Thanks, no disappointment, I just hate to throw things out and was not sure what to do with these, your input is greatly appreciated, maybe put on e-bay instead of throwing out.
