My recent MF lens deal

My girlfriend and I were out adventuring, found a thrift shop that had 75% off posted on the window. Had to go in...

-Takumar Bayonet 135mm f/2.5, exc shape. $25 w/orig rear cap, no front cap.
-Vivitar Series 1 (Tokina v.3, K-mount) 70-210mm f/3.5, vg to exc. $13.75 w/Asahi rear cap, non-OEM front cap.
-Kaligar Auto Wide 35mm f/2.8 (M42), some minor brassing, clean glass. $3.75 w/generic rear cap.

They had a bunch of old slower K-mount zooms, but I'm not much interested in those. The only other interesting piece of gear was a Zenit 122K with Helios 44K-4, but he wanted $125 for it (minus the aforementioned discount), which I thought might be high. It was like new, so maybe not.

Any words of wisdom on the Zenit? I would be interested in the Helios, but I already have 4-5 ~50mms, and I'd have to buy a K-mount to EOS I'm hesitant to continue the LBA. But I have to buy that adapter anyway if I want to use the 135mm or the Series
