$450 Helios-40-2 85mm F1.5 (Approx. $369 USD), Great condition, mechanically smooth optically has some minor old lens dust, 10-blade aperture, comes with the tripod mount, has a rear piece holding the tripod mount in i plan to remove in order to use it on a Pentax K-1 and likely other modern cameras, simply lossen 4 very small set screws and thread it off, its a part that is meant to be able to come off, when I sell this lens I will include everything.

$210 Vivitar Series 1 135mm F2.3 (Approx. $172 USD), Great condition, Just recently CLA'd

$95 Jupiter-21M 200mm F4.0 (91005834) (Approx. $78 USD), Great condition, mechanically smooth, but the slide out hood is pretty sloppy, likely normal and nothing an elastic band couldn't address or a decent thread on hood.

$55 Soligor 450mm F8.0 (Approx. $45 USD), A unique fun telephoto option in great condition

$40 Bushnell Automatic 200mm F3.5 (Approx. $33 USD), Good condition, the serial number is tAm195864, could this be a clone of a Tamron or meant for the American Marketplace? I'm sure its a clone and I know there were Vivitar, Soligor and Tamron 200mm F3.5's and possibly others too.

$40 Zeniton 200mm F4.5 T-Mount(Approx. $33 USD), small, light weight, preset, 13 blade aperture, great condition

$35 Auto Chinon 135mm F2.8 (Approx. $29 USD), Great shape and comes with a built in hood

$35 Opticam Automatic 135mm F2.8 (Approx. $29 USD), Good condition optically, mechanically and cosmetically, don't ignore it just because its 3rd party

$35 Tokina-Special 28mm F2.8 (Approx. $29 USD), Has some dust, requires the rear pin to be locked down to stop down the aperture, I can do this for you if requested before i ship it out, Otherwise in decent shape.

$35 Elicar Auto 35mm F2.8 (Approx. $29 USD), Good condition optically and mechanically, it had a dented filter thread but that has been bent back and now can take filters an thread on hoods, don't ignore it just because its 3rd party

$35 Soligor Auto-Wide 35mm F2.8 (Approx. $29 USD), Great condition, very long focus throw.

$30 Soligor Auto-Tele 135mm F2.8 (Approx. $25 USD), Great condition, except for a small point sized scratch mark on the rear element which really shouldn't effect the image quality, I've heard from others that they've really liked this version of the lens.

$25 Soligor 80-200mm F3.5 (Approx. $21 USD), Good condition, solidly built 2-touch zoom

$25 Soligor 35mm F3.5 (Approx. $21 USD), good condition

$20 M42-Canon EF adapter (Approx. $16 USD), New

$20 M42-Nikon adapters (Approx. $16 USD), 2 available, both new, with glass for infinity focus

$5 Soligor Auto 2x TC M42 (Approx. $4 USD), Good condition, nothing much needs to be said here

SOLD $100 Mamiya/Sekor SX 85mm F2.8 (16244) (Approx. $82 USD), Great condition, has been CLA'd, the pin for metering control on a Mamiya camera has been removed but I've kept it in case someone wants to re-install it, this pin would affect the ability to use it on a modern camera and may also get it stuck on a modern camera so that is why it has been removed. The lens doesn't have an A/M switch and I haven't configured the aperture pin to allow for stop down metering on a modern camera, however at F2.8 I have found it to be quite sharp on a quick test. It comes with the original caps and case and has a built in hood. One can use something as simple as tape to hold the pin down for stop down metering up to F8.0, maybe further depending on the tape, it is a temporary solution but perhaps better than taking it apart. Now this lens has a flanged edge on the aperture ring making it unable to be properly installed on a K-1 and maybe other modern K-mount cameras, even if threaded on as far as it can go it won't focus to infinity and the aperture ring will be too tight to be adjusted. If you're using a 3rd party flanged M42-K adapter you could mount it and use the aperture ring however your maximum focus distance becomes 30-32ft or around 10m. If someone is brave enough to grind down the flange on the aperture ring, a mere half a millimeter then it should mount just fine like any other M42 lens.

SOLD $10 M42-Canon EF Adapter (Approx. $8 USD), Older version, heavy solid metal
