Well, I think I can join this club.

- Pentacon 29mm F2,8: € 7,50. Nice lens, not great, but still nice to play around with.
- Pentacon 50mm F1,8: €10,00. Very nice lens, shame it's only M42, but still very nice.
- Takumar 55mm F1,8: €5,00 Again very nice lens. I don't use it alot as i have the FA 50mm 1,4
- Takumar Bayonet 135mm F2,5: €15. Yes, that's right: fifteen euros. Great lens.

In The Netherlands we have a derivative of Ebay where you can sell your stuff for free and with a little luck, there are bargains to find.

Regards,
Roger.

I got a ME super + SMC-M 50 mm f2 + Takumar Bayonet 135 mm f2,8 + Takumar Bayonet 28 mm f2,8, all for 55$. Not bad I think...

I also got a Vivitar series 1 70-210 f3,5 (first version, with best macro mode) for 42$ off eBay. I was almost ashamed.

Today I found an Exaktar 28mm f/3.5 M42... Anyone heard of this? It was free. It's in near perfect condition, haven't had much of a chance to try it out yet. I did snap a quick photo of my kid...
poor lighting, ISO 800 f/3.5, 1/15sec.

Just got my Cosina 28mm f2.8 in the mail this morning! Holy crap! It is such a nice lens. focusing is awesome. I mounted it on an extension tube and the MFD is so close it is nuts. this is with two extension tubes. I am surprised that the OOF is so round as there are only 5 aperture blades.


edited in GIMP in Ubuntu!

got it for $40CDN on eekbay. I thought it was a great deal.

A local camera store used to have used equipment in a case. One day I went in and it was gone. I asked about it and they said, it's in a closet in back (if you want to look). I did and most everything was marked at $5!

Partial list: I got several Zuikos (including a 35-105mm zoom), a couple 50mm f/1.7 Maxxum lenses, an old (but nice) 135mm Nikkor, a 500mm catadioptric f/8 k-mount lens, a vintage 135mm Miranda (with original caps), a Vivitar Series1 35-85 f/2.8 zoom/macro, a 28mm f/2 (stuck wide-open, but perfect for meteor photography) and the PRIZE of the bunch: an 85mm Zeiss Sonnar T* f/2.8 (yashica/contax mount) !!!

Jackpot!

I "sold" my Practika B200, with Pentagon 50mm, f1,4 and a Tamron Adaptal 70-210, set of Cokin filters, bag and all for 100 payed in 10 payments to a photography student that was desperate!
Not a deal on my part

My wife called me one day from a yard sale to say she got me a Pentax camera and some lenses for $20.

Turns out it was this...


Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 50/1.4 with case.
Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 28/3.5 with hood - possibly the best color/sharpness/contrast lens I own.
Vivitar 85-205mm/3.8 which I've never used. Probably for sell it if I get around to posting it.
m42 3x Teleconverter - Wow 3x the image degradation.
Broken spotmatic - shutter wont release.
Old flash.

as a rule I avoid cheap, let's rename this best lens bargin

how about a Pentax FA 28-80 1:3.5-4.7 power zoom for $10.

lens is optically in perfect condition. Power Zoom mode selector switch missing, but who cares, pentax does not support the power zoom even on the cameras that use the KAF2 mount.

Origonally I was going to use this to steal the mount and convert a K lens to KA mount, but found the lens in such good condition, I couldn't just take it apart for the mount. Ultimately gave up on the conversion idea any way.
