Item Description
Clearing out the collection, so I have a grab bag of assorted lenses and bodies here. I will try to be as specific as possible, but please contact me for more info. Photos are in a comment below.

M 50mm f/1.4 in very good condition. It pains me to sell this beauty. I have had a number of these and none that are in such incredible condition. The glass is clear, the focus is incredibly smooth, and there are just a couple of tiny scratches in the lens barrel. Honestly, I don't know how a 40-year-old lens has survived this long in this kind of condition. Comes with third-party front and rear caps. $90 + shipping

Yashica Yashinon-DX 35mm f/2.8 lens (M42 mount) in great condition. This is a rare lens that is very well-regarded. It is in magnificent shape, with just a few marks on the barrel and a little bit of dust and fine marks on the glass. You just don't see these beautiful lenses every day. Comes with original front cap and generic rear cap. $45 + shipping

Helios 44M-4 58mm f/2 lens with Cyrillic markings. This lens is in beautiful condition, with almost no wear on the lens barrel, very smooth focus (for a Soviet lens). Nearly flawless glass. For some reason the aperture blades seem to stick at certain apertures when mounted to a body, but not otherwise -- so it isn't due to oil, but apparently some friction someplace when mounted to a body. I've gotten used to its...idiosyncrasies. That's what makes Soviet lenses fun, right? Comes with original (or at least from the same company) front cap and generic rear cap. $40 + shipping

Industar-50 50mm f/3.5 lens with Cyrillic markings. A sweet little lens that takes really unique photos. Always a conversation starter when rubbing shoulders with Canon and Nikon shooters. Slight wear on the barrel and none on the glass. Comes with Takumar rear cap and original (or at least the same brand) front cap. $20 + shipping

K1000 body with new light seals and mirror pad. Older all-metal version. I've cleaned this one up and replaced all the seals, but I just haven't used it. All speeds sound right, but I haven't tested them. It winds just fine, but the exposure counter doesn't work. The meter worked the last time I put a battery in it, but I haven't tested it recently. $40 + shipping

Black Spotmatic SP, currently not working. I bought this as a project because I find them stunningly beautiful cameras. This one is seized up and I don't have the know-how to diagnose and fix it. There is some corrosion in the battery compartment, too. I hope this one can see a new life! $10 + shipping
