Two m42 bokeh monsters added to the collection!

Just a little topic to satisfy the very last drip of my current LBA streak
Yesterday I scored a Meyer-Görlitz Orestor 200mm f/4 (some sample shots: http://galactinus.net/vilva/retro/eos350d_orestegor200.html, not by me though). I also got a Pentacon Auto 135mm f/2.8.
Both lenses have the same 15-blade aperture, can't wait to try them out. I do have to wait though, since I don't have an m42-K mount adapter yet
By the by, I've spent about €45 on both, including €13,50 shipping that is, how well (or bad) of a deal did I get?

Ha Lauke, great lenses both! And I think you got a very good deal. When you buy a M42 adapter, be aware you got the original Pentax one! Most of the cheap Chinese ones give problems focussing to infinity, due to the flange!!!

Oh and I'll watch out for fake adapters then, thanks!

Right, so the first lense (135mm) came in today and I was checking it out a few minutes ago and noticed the aperture won't close beyond f/8 with the lens in manual mode. When using auto mode, it works normally, apart from one of the blades lagging oh so slightly. Nothing too noticeable, but still quite a bummer. Good thing this one was by far the cheapest of the two.
Now, I've got an idea: what if I'd jam the aperture pin all the way in somehow, effectively changing the auto mode to manual aperture control?

I already did yesterday
Couldn't find anything though, except it might need some minor cleaning up done. The aperture blades looked quite clean actually.
