4 Lenses, a K mount adapter and an M42 adapter.

28mm f2.8. Appears nice and takes reasonably sharp photos. Focus at infinity is tolerable but not what I would call Sharp. Could just be me too.

90-230 mm f4.5 Close Focus Zoom. Actually quite decent if you like these sorts of things. Sharp enough at 230mm to make a decent telephoto distance. Decent with closeups as well. I don't know the macro ratio but it allows you to focus at about 3 inches from the front of the lens.

A few photos from the above 2 lenses (lens names denoted in file names)

Index of /Photos/ForSale/Payfor85/TakenWith

300mm f5.5. As you can see, it has a tripod collar but it isn't really needed. Light enough to hand hold, sharp enough wide open but not DA* sharp. This lens is not in what I would call perfect usable condition however. The aperture blades display the drag that is usually associated with oil. I cannot See any oil and it may be a weak mechanism. In testing the lens however it would not stop down completely during the exposure. It may require a taking apart and cleaning.

35-105 f3.5. This is the sleeper of the lot and I would put it optically right up there with the Pentax A 35-105 f3.5. This particular copy is in well used shape and could probably stand a bit of a cleaning. I do not have a front cap for it (72mm) but it will come with a rear cap. If I can find a junk filter to put on it, I will. Otherwise figure on getting it as shown. Here are a few from This lens.

Note: I realize someone may just want One lens or just a mount but these go as a lot only. I'm not interested in keeping any of it or trying to sell one of these lenses with no mounts.

Bump and price drop. Basically waved the PP fees I had baked into the price. First $90 total (USA) takes it. International, these have to go priority due to weight (> 4 pounds) so if interested, write for shipping quote.
